Hand signals when riding two-up

Reading another thread I see that we are not the only couple that use hand signals to communicate.
I was wondering what hand signals you use with your pillion.
Ours are simple at the moment, but we want to get some more ideas;

Pillion to me;
Right - a tap on the RH kidney
Left - a tap on the LH kidney
Straight on - tap on both kidneys
Slow down - bash on the helmet!


Me to Pillion;
Stroke her leg to remind her I havn't forgotten she is there (if I don;t get a rub back - she is in a foul mood and it is time to stop!)

Slap to the back on my helmet: stop looking at the females and watch the road.

I've got a new Cardo Team Rider set for sale, used just a few hours. The ability to communicate with the pillion, if for no other reason than to inform me of the LEO up ahead, was worth the money.

I heard the Q2 when a buddy paired up to our Team Rider, and we upgraded the next week.

Send me a PM if interested. The Team set works quite nice, and you save $50 from what we paid. I believe I have two unused mics.

We tried the hand signals, the taps on the body..nothing worked, and when you need to hear something asap, this is the way to go. Plus, it is totally wireless.

Um, I'm another intercom system person. Hand signals just don't sut it for a long trip. On my LT I use the Voice II. On my RT I use the Camos 600 BT systems.

There is no substitute for actual voice communincations.

Use an intercom most of the time, except both hands in the ribs..."I don't like what you just did".
