    My forgetfulness is going to get me killed one of these days. All it takes is forgetting you have them on once and a teenager without enough driving discipline to assume you just forgot to shut them off.

    They aren't cheap, but are available for $60 to $75. Perhaps you could use a turn signal relay that has a beeper built in. You'll hear it beep every time the turn signal lights. Those are pretty cheap; about $6 or so on Amazon.

    I use an old automotive buzzer hooked into my signals with a couple diodes so they don't back feed.

    Cool site but they only make brake and headlight modulators for our beloved TW's. No signal minder available

    Use your arm during the day. People really respond to the old school way. At night use the bikes signals, and if you can't see that dash light blinking up at you then you may have bigger issues.

    My sporty is my primary ride, it has auto blinkers. Im constantly forgetting to shut them off on the TWs. How about something as simple as a time delay relay?

    Lol I don't trust other people to know what the right hand signal means, especially young people. They will probably think it means your stopping. If I have to use hand signals I always use my right hand for turning right just to avoid confusion.

    I like that idea. No problem hearing it buried over the engine noise with a helmet on?

    But your right hand is the "make you go" controller. :P We need to keep using the proper legal hand signals so their meaning doesn't get lost, and so society doesn't turn into idiocracy. I often still use hand signals along with my blinkers because of so many that do forget to cancel them, cagers don't trust them anymore.
