Group riding is a great way to spend time with your motorcycle and with friends. When riding in a group, good communication is important. Keeping everyone informed of the group’s plans can save time and help prevent Wisconsin motorcycle accidents.
Obviously you can’t shout out to your friend while riding, so hand signals are the best way to communicate. Our Green Bay motorcycle lawyers have provided this guide to the most popular hand signals for motorcycle riders.
- Need to stop for fuel: Place your arm out to the side and then point to the gas tank with the index finger extended.
- Stop for food: Keep fingers closed in a fist and point to your mouth.
- Rest stop: Extend forearm with fist clenched and move up and down in short motions.
- Roadway hazard: Point with right foot or left hand.
- Follow me: Extend arm straight up from shoulder with palm forward.
- Speed up: Extend right arm straight out with palm up.
- Slow down: Extend right arm straight out with palm down.
