What is a good source of information about specific laws and regulations that touring cyclists must follow. BTW, thanks for all the previous advice.

Yeah - shouldn't be a problem is you use the common sense approach and the "sorry I don't understand" tactic if there is any hassle - I've never had any.

Unless of course you go to Germany, in which case all bets are off...

blinking lights are not allowed you can only use non-flashing mode.
If you might be touring at dark (early morning or night) get reflectors, headlights, etc.

Also UK (not sure about other countries) dictates to use right hand to show turns, not left like US.

Yeah, and whatever you do don't cross the road except on a crossing, and even then never before the little man changes to green. I made that mistake (no traffic at all, so I crossed) - got roasted by a German policeman. No, really, it's a strange place....
