    I was behind another rider for 5 minutes or so, entire time his indicator was blinking away.
    After overtaking him, I figure I'd try to let him know, by emulating some blinking motion with thumb and fingers.

    I think he didn't get the message and got offended. (I got a WTF signal back in return.)
    Pull alongside and turn it off for him ?

    Funny - that used to mean "hurry up and get home - got plans for you" with mine

    Kick out your right leg to signal the following rider you wish him to pass.
    I feel that this is really good for group riding, as at time you may find yourself at the front end of a pack that wants to ride faster than you.
    I do not enjoy the sensation of another rider sitting on my butt, almost as an intimadation to go faster.
    By kicking my right leg out and forward, I signal him that I want him to pass.
    This could also save a lot of stress for learners who dont want to go as fast but feel expected too because they are in a pack.
    I guess its part of the " ride to the conditions and your ability" saftey margine.
    On a long group ride , I enjoy the excitement of tight corners, but I know my ride is not as nimbile as some around me, so by pulling to the left of the road, kicking out my right foot, I want the rider behind me to pass.
    A very simple easy to read signal, that allows slower or less confident riders to fall of the pace and back into their comfort zone.
    Good one i will use.
