True dat. I been following this thread for a couple days over coffee. Morning ritual and all that. Finally! Lance reminds us of the baseline and Visionjohny notes the ultimate option for indicating a lane change "there is always hand signals".If you're depending on your blinking light to allow you to turn into oncoming traffic you'll get killed sooner or later anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
If Pop were smart enough to even consider being an electrical engineer I could see myself using that particular skill set to delve into the intricacies of the Victory elebdruhkle system. But, grunt that I am, I don't imagine that my future includes committing a part of a days labor to tweaking my blinkers. I push the button, she blink. I push them both, she no blink. I'm like... done.
Vive la dif though. Good luck with that there quest to improve the operational characteristics of turn signals.
If OTOH you guys ever get a wild hair to really make Pops day electrically, come up with a solution to that POS fuel gauge and it's penchant for lying about what is left in the tank. My turn signal lights do both accurately, light and signal turns. My fuel gauge does not, gauge fuel that is.
