    Hand Signals are good for group rides. A lot of people don't have a CB or radio.

    If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

    No reason to be embarrassed. I know these signals because I escort a lot of rides and it's group rides where these are used except for the most common, turn and slow down signals. We go over the most common that might be used on a group ride each and every time because not everyone knows them. And I use them all the time. They are totally unexpected so it gets the attention of jerks following too close behind you that is looking at their cell phone. So always use hand signals. Who knows. We might start a new trend of drivers paying attention to the road.
    The only reason some people are still alive is it's illegal to shoot them.

    Ronnie, you are from MA, no one uses signals there...LOL Unless it's for a parking space at Wal-Mart.

    seriously though, the signals are nice to know but for me, If the lead bike uses turn signal and pulls off the road, I follow.

    I have used the Cop signal for oncoming bikers and they just looked at me like I was crazy.
