As much as I hate to, I've just got to admit it and ask for help:
I absolutely suck at remembering to cancel my turn signals after a turn.
I almost always had at least one street-legal motorcycle from 1964 to 2004. The times I didn't have one never lasted more than a month or two. Sometimes they were my only means of transportation and other times they were an optional means, but if I had a bike I rode it a lot. I don't remember having this problem back then, but a lot of those motorcycles didn't have turn signals.
From 2004-early 2018 I didn't own a bike. When I sold my bike in 2004 I promised myself that I was going to be the first owner of the next one and I wouldn't buy it until I could walk into the dealership and write a check for it. There were several times I could have done that, but I had basically lost interest by then.
Well that changed in April 2018 when I decided it was time to ride again and yeah, I wrote a check for my Bonne T120. It was easy to get back into the groove and I've put almost 16,000 miles on it in the 16 months I've owned it — and I hate to think of how many of those miles that I've ridden with the turn signal blinking.
So why am I admitting this?
Well, I'm hoping some of you will have some words of wisdom for me that will help me break out of this rut I'm in. My fellow motorists and riders deserve better.
BTW, I don't have this problem in my car, but it has self-cancelling turn signals. One more problem that seems to be exacerbating the situation is the indicators in the tachometer aren't very attention-grabbing during daylight hours. As far as I'm concerned, they should be amber instead of green and they should be a lot brighter, but that wouldn't matter if I just had the self-discipline to turn the damned things off.
So how about it? Anyone have any constructive ideas?
