Hunka Hunka Burning Love Posted March 16, 2016 Share Posted March 16, 2016 After riding on a bike path and turning left onto another path, I noticed a few seconds later a bike zoomed by right after. In hindsight, I was thinking if they were trying to pass me on the left, and I suddenly veered left we would have collided pretty badly. Thinking about that I was thinking of maybe in the future doing a quick shoulder check and an arm signal (like they teach for bikers) to indicate my turning intentions. Does anyone one else do this sort of arm gesture routinely? On a EUC, there's not much of an indication of what direction you'll be turning in plus sometimes the wind rushing past the ears blocks sounds of vehicles and quiet bikes coming up behind you. I also find it a little hard to turn my head much to look back as it makes me change direction a little. I wonder if doing a little turn signal amber light mod with remote hand control might be worth looking into. I remember reading that someone had a crash with a bicyclist which damaged their EUC. Usually bikes passing will call out "on your left" just to give a heads-up, but I've also had some zoom right past without notice. My peripheral hearing is good, but not that great directly behind me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
