Surely it wouldn't be too hard to build a circuit using an accelerometer
that would do the trick? It would be as simple as setting it so that
when the accelerometer detects a return to a vertical position, and the
blinkers are active, the cancel signal is sent.

Even bikes like Z900s and GS750s came with those beepers circa 1976.
They stayed working about as long as it took to find some wire-cutters!!

How about employing a Mercury switch?
Blinkers would cancel out once the bike becomes upright.

My '87 K75 had them but my '97 R1100GS didn't!
Dunno if they came back on that later BeeEms though.....

'cept a bike leant over thinks it IS upright.
i.e. if you had a bowl of water on the tank while you were going at a
constant radius curve, leant right over, the water level would be flat.
It's like twirling a bucket around your head; the centrifical force cancels
out the gravity.
The microswitch would activate when you initiated the turn and the
straighten-up though (unless you did it very, very gradually).
