I can vouch for the seller of the bike. He's good people and I would just call him and ask. I'll point him to this thread as well.

anyways, would you do it?

Hey guys, I own this bike and if your wanting it to ride the highways and expressways, give this up. This is an off road bike I make legal to take on dirt roads and mountain roads (jeep roads). I've ridden it in NM, Colorado, Arkansas, etc, but mainly off road with a little highway driving to get to the next trail. It had to be street legal to ride on the roads to get to the trails. Top speed is about 70 mph and it's way up in the rpm's at that. It's a great off road bike and CAN be driven on the street, but don't suggest you do that all the time. Buelligan

FWIW. I have never had anyone check my turn signals in a motorcycle inspection (I have integrated signals), but I would never ride on the street without them either way.

Loosenoose, I own this bike and it's a dirt bike that is street legal, wouldn't want to ride it just on the street. It was legalized so I could ride from trail to trail on the roads without getting a ticket, not everyday use. Top speed is 70 mph and that's a whole lotta RPM's at thet speed. Pretty much an off road bike still, just has the plates and inspection to keep from getting ticketed when I'm on dirt roads and jeep trails that are county maintained. Buelligan

To answer your question...

Yes, I would and often do ride without turn signals.
If you ride as though you are invisible, which you should because you are, then what good are they?
I figure the muzzle flashes will let them know what I'm gonna do.

yeah, i ride pretty much with the mindset of if they dont see me, then they are after me, and they probably dont see me.
my mrevious daily was a miata, which was a good prep to street riding

sometimes I'll use my turn signals, sometimes I'll just point to the lane I'm going over to....I don't use the goofy hand signals like the picture shows, lol.

and if my bike didn't have turn signals, i wouldn't bother getting them...they aren't required anyway.

f*ck turn signals. if you're always going faster than traffic and looking over your shoulder, who cares.

how many of you actually signal every time you change lanes anyway?

ive been riding without front signals since november but i still have my back signals and yes i use them. what up with using arm signals? legal and visible!
