Are you a finger pointer?

I get a laugh when I see guys riding sportbikes doing the hardly-able-son finger pointing lane change thing.

They (you guys) crack me up.

Are you going to sit there and tell me about how it's a safety issue? (drive a cage if that's what you're worried about)

People like y'all should just trade in your rocket and go ahead and get a a bright orange and black tattoo along with that s-l-o-w 2 banger you've been dreaming about, or just ride side saddle so that everyone will know who you are.

Stop the madness already!!! You ride a sportbike if you can't understand that, think of a better place you can put that finger.

I think so... What is wrong with that? The turn signal lights are so close together that you can't see which lane someone is changing into, or it's so bright that they can't be seen.

Ya I do, but newbie dont always notice everything.

and in a big group sometimes a few riders back cant see your turn signal, and not everyone has it on.

also if the gap between The car next to me and the car in front, ill point cuz the car cant see my blinker well (some times)

Dude I didn't say hand signals, I use those too when there's a cage following too closely. I was mentioning the lane-change-finger-pointing thing.

what is it with everybody slamming HD guys lately? I know they give ya plenty of reasons to slam 'em, but JEEEZ, talk about "being a finger pointer"

"Stop the madness already!!"
Hows about we try really hard to be a friendly motorcycle community instead of a bunch of metric riding arrogant asshats.
just an idea
