Be like Tom, just fasten your helmet. 
The braking signal is new to me, is that still the standard?

Mebbe Tom's brake light is bust.  :745:

That braking signal looks different from the one I'm familiar with, which was to have your elbow high, hand down. Also interesting that they signal with both hands as opposed to only the left hand. But that is understandable because the video is before the standard controls (showing a left handed throttle.)

The braking signal was normal for UK, afaik we never had a left hand throttle, we could indicate with right hand 'cos our throttles were screw & spring loaded, so stayed put while we signalled, I have that on my Ariel FH, Buddy Holly had same bike in same oe colour scheme as mine.
