Default Turn signal beeper

How many time have you forgotten to turn off you turn signal?
On my bike, '03 Intruder, the blinking indicator is out of my field of view and I'm a bit forgetful and don't always remember to hit the cancel button.
I had on my previous bike a turn signal beeper that audibly reminded me of my turn signal be on. I liked it so well, I've just ordered one for my Intruder.
There are signal canceling devises available. Their price is pretty steep.
The beeper is about 1/3 of the cost of the canceling units and serves the purpose perfectly.

How many times have I done it? Oh,...Everyday.
I want one that supplies a mild electric shock after 5 seconds. Maybe That will get my attention.

I actually don't do that :P (a lil OCD I am) whenever I'm riding I constantly find myself pushing the button in the make sure my signal is off ^_^ even when there is absolutely no reason to (like I've been driving straight for the past ten minutes)

I've made it a habit to press the canceler after I've gone around any bend regardless of whether I've used the signal or not. Do I still leave the signal on sometimes? Of course I do but I usually catch it eventually.

I didn't know they were available...I have the same problem. Are they hard to install?

I'm always forgetting to turn off my signal also. I was going to purchase one from JC Whitney but didn't want to spend over $30. So I built my own for under $10. Takes only two parts from Radio Shack, a beeper and a bridge rectifier. Takes only 5 minutes to build. It took longer to trace and find the +side of my signal than it took to build. I installed my buzzer behind one of my side panels...works great

Radio Shack has a buzzer that is 110 db. When I first started to build my TS beeper I bought one. I was in the garage with the door closed and my kids were in the house and they heard it. My garage is about 100 yards from the house. I retuned it and bought an 87db....works perfect.

i grew up old school and rarely use signal lights for turning. hand signals work fine. and real easy to tell if you left the signal on....

Hand signals are good during the day, but can be kind of hard for the other folks to see at night.
