Yes the turn signals still worked for sure.
A few days ago I was re-installing a turn signal that had come loose after I dumped my bike. Once it was back on I went for a short ride and noticed that my turn signals didn't work at all. I opened up the turn signal that I had been working on and found that the positive and negative wires were in contact and once I fixed that problem I tested the turn signals and all was well. I never figured to check the headlight and tail light because I like you thought that a fuse relating to the turn signals would have blown if anything. But after I saw that the turn signals worked I disregarded anything else.
The headlight and tail light fuse probably blew the instant that I activated the turn signal when the wires were crossed. Strange... but everything else worked including the brake light. I will carry fuses with me forever after this.
