Motorcycling Hand Gestures and their meanings

Although motorcycle hand gestures are something that most riders learn as part of their motorcycle license exams, often they are forgotten and not used when actually needed. For example, if another motorist cuts you up, is on the phone or generally driving in a selfish and oblivious manner which could be detrimental to your health, then communication between bikers and other motorists via hand signals are critical towards staying safe at all times.


Motorcycle Left Turn

Pull over is an invitation to a severe bollocking from an angry biker by the road side in order to determine who was at fault, this is sometimes accompanied by sharp increases in revs from the engine.



Motorcycle Right Turn

I’ll box the head a ya  A clenched fist indicates to other motorists that you are now quite angry, upset and willing to beat people up for their stupidity and misbehaviour on the public road.




Ya bender A derogatory signal often aimed at motorists who lock their doors and want to avoid confrontation, it calls into question their very masculinity which can sometimes be offensive.



Motorcycle Speed Up

WTF dude? A show of dismay, often aimed at people much bigger than you who could possibly gain the upper-hand in a road-side wrestle or fist fight, but shows you are unwilling to let it slide none the less.



Motorcycle Slow Down

Tentative ‘pull over’  Half-hearted gesture to make you feel better but secretly in the hope that they wont pull up, often directed towards truck drivers and foreigners about whom it is difficult to ascertain if they could be > 6ft4 in stature.



Follow Me

No problem Often follows an acknowledgement by the other road user, usually a popular & well-known neighbour with a nice daughter, that they could have inadvertently killed you, none the less you’d rather not labour the point because they waved a kind gesture which made you feel a lot better.



Motorcycle You Lead Come

You Brainless Cunt, pull over Attempts to breathe slowly while maintaining composure with people you shouldn’t really beat the shit out of, such as pensioners, women and priests, but would rather engage in a stern talk and re-educate them on the consequences of their actions.



Motorcycle Road Hazard

Pull over for a kick up the hole A half hearted signal for other motorists to express dismay at their behaviour while exercising restraint with synchronised knee movements in an up the hole fashion.



Motorcycle Single File

Winner Alright First Biker to the post while slowing down from a Hoolie run in order to let the group of ensuing riders know who won a tightly run contest, an informal and unwritten expression of glee and triumph at being quite talented & clever.



Motorcycle Double File

Hafta Shite Pulling in for a number 2 – an urgent message expressing the need to evacuate ones bowels at the nearest available lavatory and opportunity, usually follows an excessively high speed run and ‘close call’ with other traffic that could have went pear-shaped in spectacular fashion.



Motorcycle Comfort Stop

G’on y’wanker  Poking fun at another motorist, usually a BMW driver or boy-racer who thought he were fast but took umbrage at your shockingly quick overtake and exhibition of real speed, with a flashing of lights or blowing their horn in scornful protest & disbelief.



Motorcycle Comfort Stop

Itchy Nose completely forgetting you had a helmet on while attempting to scratch or pick your nose thru the visor, usually an involuntary movement while waiting at the lights after being distracted by hot totty and nonchalantly assessing possible escape routes from your immediate playground.



Motorcycle Turn Signal On

Frozen hands Attempts to increase blood-flow and circulation with rapid hand movement and finger articulations while riding through the winter months with shyte gloves, no heated grips, early onset of arthritis and fingers being frozen solid.



Motorcycle Pull Off

Hail Hitler A pursuing Garda’s gesture often synonymous with a misunderstood Austrian who allegedly introduced 6-million Jews to Zyklon B during a WW2 roadside breath-test, do you risk pulling over to be turned into soap and your skin draped over a lamp-shade ? me neither, pin it.



Motorcycle Cops Ahead

Dick Head Enlightens a fellow muppet road user in no uncertain terms as to their propensity and footing on the richter scale of wankerism during the course of their conduct on a public road, the head being the highest point articulates a not inconsiderable misdemeanour often caused by, but not exclusive to ‘suits’.



Motorcycle Fuel

‘Sup Bitches Attempts to looks like you’re just casually relaxing while riding a noisy piece of shit down a busy street, esp. when there are impressionable females present and you’d rather not be regarded as a go-go power-ranger, usually undertaken when you’ve not got laid or had any attention for several weeks.



Most motorcycle hand signals are fairly intuitive, especially when combined with appropriate body language; however, new riders may be confused upon first seeing them.

North West and Ulster GP race winner Davy Morgan seeks a backer ahead of 28th season

North West and Ulster GP race winner Davy Morgan seeks a backer ahead of 28th season

North West and Ulster GP race winner Davy Morgan seeks a backer ahead of 28th season in motorcycling

Davy Morgan, from Darragh Cross, near Saintfield, enters his 27th season of racing in 2019 with a Superstock BMW, Supersport Kawasaki and his own 250cc Honda at his disposal, but despite top quality machinery he still has to find the running costs for these machines and all that goes with leading his DM71 Road Racing team.

Despite being a privateer, Davy has an impressive CV with wins at the North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix and a victory in the Senior Manx Grand Prix plus numerous TT replicas and a number of Irish national road race victories to his name.

With his distinctive pink race helmet, Davy is one of the most recognisable road racers in the sport and is as determined and excited about the season ahead as he was when he started.

Davy said,

“I’m not ready to retire just yet and I’m not going racing in 2019 just to make up the numbers. I still have the drive and passion to be competitive and finish as high up the results sheets that I can and that is down to me, as the bikes I have been kindly given to use are competitive.

“2018 was the first year in a long time I didn’t have a title sponsor to help me with running costs for the season. That, along with a crash early in the year, meant I had to sit out a number of meetings.

“Budgets had to be stretched, for instance on a number of occasions using tyres that bit longer than we should have. However, this is the reality for most riders running their own teams.

“I have a decent infrastructure with race truck, awning etc. and people think my team is well financed. This is not the case, as the reality is that it has been built up over my 20-plus years of racing.”

In an ideal world Davy would love to have a title sponsor for each of his bikes heading into the new season. He can be contacted a via his Facebook page, DM71 Road Racing.

Davy is also launching a 71 Club, looking for 71 people to sponsor him with £71 to help get him on the grid for 2019.

Ahead of the KDM Cookstown 100 road race on April 26-27, resurfacing has taken place on parts of the renowned Orritor Circuit.

Both Craigmount and Braeside Corners have benefitted from the work undertaken by Cookstown and District Club in conjunction with Mid Ulster Council and Department of Infrastructure with the safety of competitors in mind after riders had voiced concerns in recent years.
