    self cancelling indicators

    For those who've got their Tigers, how is everyone getting on with the self cancelling indicators?

    Have to admit I've turned it off, too many times the other day I was indicating to turn left or approaching a junction to turn right where another vehicle could have emerged safely, to find my indicators had only been on the 3 flashes and had turned off.  Should probably have given it more time to get used to them but as a bit of a newb I've got enough to remember never mind making sure I've  given the indicators a hard press if I'm turning into a side road or on a roundabout.

    Old fashioned mode for me (for now)

    TBH self-cancelling indicators are not something I'm a fan of.
    My dad has them on his BMW and too many times I've watched him have similar problems. The trouble is once you start using them, you get used to it and rely on them.
    I like the idea and it's a nice touch on what is essentially a 'budget' bike, but I will be turning mine off. If you're still new to riding then I think it's a good Idea to leave them off and get into the habit of using them manually  :028:

    All my bikes to this point have had non-cancelling indicators... I'm looking forward to the self-cancelling ones on the Tiger.  My plan is to adjust my 'habits' to make them work for me.

    It's nice that they can be enabled/disabled though, so everyone can use them how they choose.

    First time I've had self-cancelling indicators, and on my ride home from buying my bike, I had reservations about them!  However, I've stuck with them and now I'm glad I have.  I find the "quick flick" for 3 flashes a real benefit for lane changing, and I'm really getting used to the self cancelling function.  Be nice if they cancelled a little bit sooner, but no biggie.

    Took me a bit to get used to the longer push (left or right) for more than three flashes. Now I love the three flash option and the self cancel.

    Same... I'm getting used to them.
