    And then there are the times when you have to suddenly brake, like when a motorist cuts you off. No bright brake lights like autos have. Hand signals are moot. And you're stuck in high gear.

    Unfortunately I'm not as agile as I'd like to be. I can't break, shift gears and signal all at the same time. So I don't signal because I can't. Hopefully drivers interpret my intentions...

    I have a flashing option on my headlamp but I never use it. It would be quite difficult trying to see in the dark when your light keeps blinking.
