I think the IAM..

and others still use the hand signals...like baza says.Trouble is most drivers wont know what most signs mean...It's a more definite way of showing your intentions I suppose.

Well even if they don't know

they might hang back when you start waving arms about!!  "what's that maniac up to??!! :shock: haha! Of course it was a bit easier on those old bikes without such a quick return spring on the throttle, set I think to stay in place so you could signal? :unsure:

smoto...

the idea is to use the left hand for all signals ...ie. Left arm straight out, (going left) left arm out a bit and shake it about (me watch has stopped again) left arm raised above head and rotate  hand around wrist (hello duckie or Charge!).....speaking of hand signals,what do you make of these?

Hand signals

So glad I don't often need to use them now. Nightmare on my first Bantam. Throttle snapped shut every time I let go to signal. Used to end up coming to a stop yards short of the turning. Very grateful when I met Mr B. He knew how to adjust it properly and solved the problem immediately.  :smile
