thanks for the replies guys and gals
Update almost a week later. Road rash on my foot, and leg are healing up nicely. Still ride the moped to work every day. I wish the road rash on my ped would heal itself... but alas, Im now in search of a new pedal, and mirrors.
thanks for your suggestions and good wishes. It was interesting to see the variety of responses. If it were a poll... the consensus would say something like:
"use hand signals... sometimes, but people wont understand it anyway." haha. vague yes.
right now, im signaling about 20% of the time, mostly when there are cars behind me.
best to you all
