If their suspension is like mine at the moment they are probably hanging on for dear life! I would wave but then I'm just a bloody nice person

There ought to be a German translation, ideal for a nation well known for self effacing humour, might not fit on one sticker though.

I have this Smart turn system installed on my motorcycle for a month now and i have to say that everyone should have this device on their motorcycle. It is true that installation is a bit DIY project, but everyone is able to get it on.

It works amazing. better than in car. I can finally laugh at the guys with blinking indicators because mine don't blink anymore if not necessary. :)
