To each their own and I totally respect the right everyone has to their own opinion but I feel that by not using Sig-also, either electric or hand, you're putting yourself in a bad situation. I don't trust other drivers when I'm in a car, let alone on a bike. You never know what other drivers are intending to do, but signals are an attempt to let others on the road what your intentions are and feel that they are required by law for a reason. I can count the number of times that I see signals being used inappropriately or not used at all. I see them turned on as they are changing lanes or after they've already begin a lane change or turn and and it drives me nuts. Their intended use is to let others on the road know your intentions, therefore I always signal, wait for it to be clear and then execute my lane change or turn. I feel that once you decide to get on the road with others you are obligated to act a certain way because your actions don't only affect you, but others as well. I know I got kinda long winded and I apologize but it is something I feel very strongly about. Respect to everyone and ride safe, so you can continue to enjoy riding.
