Thumbs up Communicating with Passenger

So I'm just starting to get comfortable with taking my girlfriend on longer rides as well as on the freeways and such.

The other day we were riding and her helmet was coming off or something... Anyways, she starts tapping on me at random and moving around a lot.
I tried talking to her, that didn't work, and wasn't safe. So I just figured I would pull over and ask her what was wrong.

This made me decide that we need some signals for each other....I have gone with.

2 taps on ME= pull over NOW
3 taps on ME= pull over at next exit
2 taps on HER= hold on tight, about to do some shifty maneuvering

Can anyone think of any other signals that might be important/usefull? Or give your 2 cents on how you communicate with your passenger. Would be much appreciated!

Would I have to buy helmets that come with these already installed, or can they be aftermarket ?

I dont take passnges often and because of that I have a cover for passenger a part of seat

When i do take one i say to them squeeze legs twice to slow down
tap left leg twice to stop with there leg
same thing but right leg to speed up

reason i get them to use legs is so that they still have hands on grab rail

I someone that once and it was there first time on a bike and regeted not telling them to lean ith me as i thought we would neve get around foist round about we came to but just managed it by staying up right

As for using a comuication device no use with me as I have 40% loss of hearing and becaus eof that always use ear plugs
