I have a tendency to indicate my right turns by extending my right arm not the proper way by bending left arm at elbow. Any one else even bother to signal? The left turn signal cutting across to the turn lane is a no brainer, right?
Commuting to work by bike not recommended unless you can keep up with flow of traffic, or so I have heard. No way I can do more tha 25 mph commuting ususally do 16 mph (on mtb). I figure means being able to cut across lanes to get in position to make safe and legal turn without holding up traffic. I see people who look like they are commuting yet cannot get across a lane and into the left turn lane without a whole lot of wobbles, and half hearted aborted attempts. I so love my barend rear view mirror. I can see behind me better than on my motorcycle (rice burner crotch rocket). Gives me huge confidence to attempt crossing lanes. Even just being able to see cars coming from behind is awesome.
