I was thinking... it sure would be nice to have blinkers for the ole bike. I use it primarily on city streets and blinkers would be nice.

Anyone use `em? If so, how do you like the ones you have and would you recommend them? It seems there are dozens of different versions/types on Amazon.

Several here have directional lights on their bikes including me.

Lucky me.
My Whizzer has a 12v 1.5ah battery supported by a 85w stator to produce 12v power to the lights and horn

C'mon Wrench........................take the pedals off and that's a motorcycle !

Besides God gave all of us two blinkers. You just have to flex your hands. LOL
Sadly many younger drivers don't know what hand signals mean. Also try bump braking down a 20%+ grade hill and needing to make a left turn near the bottom. On most bikes the left hand controls the front brake, the one you need the most. It also means having to take a hand off the handlebar at high speeds when you're only using hand signals.

I did the hand flexing riding my terratrike for 600 miles.

I have to rotate the L and R tires cause right tire gets all the stress of braking for turns.

Aftermarket blinkers anyone, I'll take a set.

My dolphin tail light array! 12 volt marker lights and a cheap flasher module with a proper left and right switch of course.
