In preparation for the riding season, take a minute to check out the latest version of motorcycle hand signals from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. The Chapter follows most of the basic MSF hand signals, and generally they are passed back from the front of the column of bikes. Since not everyone has CB-Radios or Bluetooth communication on their bikes, hand signals are an important means to let the riders know either of hazards in the road ahead, or which direction the chapter is going to move, pass a vehicle, etc.
There are a few differences between the Chapter signals and MSF standard signals. Currently the MSF signal for pulling the group over has traditionally been a chapter signal to indicate there is a potential hazard on the side of the road (pulled over vehicle, bicyclist, etc.). If there are other differences I will add them to this blog.
Thanks Everyone and LET'S RIDE!
