The problem is that car drivers--especially if their cars are road-legal tanks--do not get this. So, legal or not, whichever way you think is less likely to get you killed is the best way.

I use my right hand to signal a right turn.
I have also found out that if one of those tank drivers do something
stupid like cut me off, a sharp open palm slap to the quarter panel gets
their attention real quick. The open palm does no damage but makes a
nice loud thump that they can hear. Had one of those drivers one time
stop call the police and try to have me ticketed for slapping their car.
A nice expensive BMW by the way. Police showed up all they saw was my
palm print in the dust on the side of the car. I told the officer what I
was doing at the time and why I slapped the side of the car. The driver
drove away with a crisp new ticket for failure to yield right of way and
illegal turn. Brought a smile to my face and hoped that the driver
learned a lesson.
