i use the finger point lane change on the car and the bike, what is wrong with that?? its easier than using the real signals,, i do it this way mainly to show some sort of signal, therefor i will never get a "failure to signal lane change" ticket.. i still dont see why it bothers you so much..?

I point when traffic is tight on the road and the cars are aggressive and I don't think they'd pay attention to my signals. It gives everyone around me very little excuse to not pay attention when I am about to change in front of them. Arm bent up to signal right change.

What is with this pointing with the foot? I never heard or seen anything like that before. If I saw someone do that, I wouldn't know what to think of it. I can guarantee you that nearly every cager out there would be like WTF is he doing with his foot? Not, "Oh he's about to change lanes." Plus, I think it makes the bike less stable to remove your foot from the peg as you effectively add more steering inputs on the bars by having to help support your weight wit hyour hands instead of using your thighs and gripping the tank.

grip tank? I ride on the of my feet.. and hands on the bars.. and let the bike move around all it wants and we are all happy... :laughing6


Maybe thats why friends look at me funny when I have it pegged across rough roads and RR tracks and the bike looks like it is going 10 different directions at once... :icon_bigg

I only use foot signals when riding in groups and I am indicating some quality issue on the road to be avoided by people behind me. If you stuck a foot out to the left I would probably pull right to avoid the gravel, oil, coolant etc. Besides what cager is going to see a foot?
