BobbyB says " Honda is messing with my life by doing this with no options,"

Another option is:

"Pay Attention & hit the darn signal again!!!!!!!!

I know that it turns off too soon,and that I like being alive and not ran over,so I fixed the problem myself.

I tell myself everytime I hit it,to watch when it goes off and hit it again.wow easy fix.......

Not blame Honda.............

Well Officer I knew that this was gonna happen one day,Yes Officer I knew the signal turned off too soon,but That's Honda's fault not mine.

Officer's says well son,if you knew this was a problem and didn't do anything to correct it,than the reason the guy ran over you is partly your fault,

if you knew you had a turn signal light bulb burned out,would that be Honda's fault,the guys fault that ran you over OR your fault ?

Just my 2 cents worth......

Regarding hitting the switch again, I've been riding all my life, and in the middle of a curve, clutching to downshift or coming to a stop with the clutch pulled in while in the middle of a curve waiting for an oncoming car, it is a bit difficult to hit the switch just as the signal stops blinking. In my opinion, the suggestion to hit the switch again is not really much of a fix.

I would have thought that you Americans that sue cuz the Mc D's coffee was too hot would be all over Honda for this one. I agree that sometimes when turning and dealing with cars, pedestrians, road hazards and clutching, It can sometimes be hard to hit the button again. Which is why I adjusted mine as mentioned earlier in this topic. On the 1500 when you push the turn signal button you get approximately 10 flashes before it stops, if you don't lean the bike over. It will cycle the 10 flashes no matter when you hit the button. If you are in the 5th or 6th flash of the previous cycle it will flash 10 times from the new button push. I don't know if it's the same on the 1800's. If it is you don't have to look for the last flash, just keep pushing the button every 6 or 7 seconds and it will flash 10 from that point. It is a pain but not nearly as much as being run over would be. But your right, it is something Honda needs to address. That is if they ever really cared about what their customers thought.

And if it's too stinking hot to gear up, it's too stinking hot to ride.

If your not man enough to take the lead, stop complaining from behind.

I hit my turn signal again because I found the it turned off early when exiting off the Highway. Mines on a GL1200I.
