    HD self-cancelling POS signals. Not kewl at all. I try to avoid using them. I do forget sometimes, though. But it's ok because eventually I have to pull in the clutch lever to upshift or downshift, so I can "unextend" my left hand.

    I can almost hear their thoughts. Is he waving? Is/was he turning? Is he catching bugs with his hand? Is he an idiot?

    The great thing about following someone with the marker on is that you know what way to go back home

    I recently changed the angle of my windshield and now the turn signal indicator is reflected in it right in front of my face and about four inches high so I can't miss when its on

    this is a big joke with me and fellow riding buddies...we give eachother a little honk if behind, a "flashing had signal" if ahead.

    funniest moment of daytona bike week: my friend honks at me and i turn mine off...then a minute later i give him the "flashing hand signal"...he had left his on but was telling me to turn mine off. we all had a good laugh at the next light.

    i ALWAYS leave mine on...sux! other riding buddy has a Kaw Vulcan and it is self cancelling!

    I've been ridding over 20 years and I will still forget once in a while. It just happens.

    It happened to me yesterday even though it had been a couple of months since I last forgot. Getting in the habit of obsessively hitting the cancel button helps avoid this problem
    The world is not my home. I'm just a passin' thru.

    I have the problem every now and then. Especially with my cold weather gloves. I hit the button to cancel but, the gloves are so squishy it doesn't work.

    Unless they have auto cancelling. Then the bike never forgets.
