Hobo Marks for Cagers

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by cjvfr, May 19, 2012.

  1. During the Great Depression in the USA out of work hobos travelling the country came up with a group of images called the hobo codes. They would put them on buildings to inform each other about the residents of that building.


    It got me thinking a similar system could be used to indicate what particular cager drivers are like. What symbols should motorcyclists have to put on cars to warn each other?

    Suggested Options:

    • Never Indicates
    • Closes lanes on filterers.
    • Mobile Phone talker/texter.
    • Motorcycle Friendly
    • Lane Wanderer
    • Racer wanker
    • ???
  2. - won't see you in the wing mirrors (cos I kicked 'em off)
    - indicates left while moving right
    - indicates right while moving left
    - serial SMIDSY offender
    - un-marked cop car
    - car contains b00bs!
  3. tailgates
  4. Interested to see the symbol you come up with for that one ;)

  7. How do we put them on the car? Do we just take out our key and start drawing?

  8. I'm not sure why, but I was thinking of kill markings similar to those in the pic below.
    I was thinking of silhouettes of wing mirrors and car doors, and maybe even a gloved fist? Anyhow, as you were...
  9. I think it's a good idea

    And as both a rider AND a driver, I suggest some marks on the sides of bikes for....

    hit my mirror while filtering and didn't stop
    appeared out of nowhere at high speed and then abused me when I attempted to change lanes
    parked on the footpath when I have to pay to park on the road

  17. You don't need to worry about different symbols, cagers already put sign up that they are going to be trouble. It's called "my family"

  18. We only need one sign, just remove a mirror.
  19. Haha whenever I see a car with a missing or smashed mirror, I wonder if they've messed with a biker before.
    Or whether it's just someone I've already met myself...
