I think we all know about the politics, can't think of a better word, that sometimes goes along with riding. Harley dudes don't like imports, crotch rockets don't like cruisers and vice versa... Certain cats won't throw you a greeting back if you throw one out there. So this got me to thinking do you guys greet:

* 1%ers
* harley drivers
* crotch rockets
* scooters
* trikes
* motorcycle cops

Thanks!

In my area it doesn't matter what you ride, just that you do. Mutual respect and waves all around. :)

If it's got two wheels, I wave at 'em. Well, three if it's a trike. :p

I especially enjoy wavin' at young people on scooters/ring dings, these guys don't expect much from the "big" bike riders, but seem thrilled when ya do acknowledge them. I was thrilled in 1972 when a HD Electra Glide guy waved at me, on my Suzuki 90 Enduro (my 1st bike), so I like to pass that thrill along if I can.

2 wheels is better than no wheels

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

dang guys ..... now I fell all like an a$$#0L3,...... guess I better start waving to the scooter riders too then .... lmao ;)
j/k

I rarely pass scooters...... or oddly enough,..motorcycle cops either, but I wave to everyone I pass nonetheless. I do like wavin' to the scoots though cause the few that I have passed and waved to seemed to be caught off guard and not knowing exactly how to wave back.... :eek: *newbie wavers* lol ;)

I wave at everyone but scooters.....but I guess I should, just to see these responses. A lot don't wave back here in Florida......mostly the dual sport guys....know what I mean?! This always confused me.

Well I'm starting to feel a little like a PR...#[email protected]% now. Thanks alot :D

I have different waves, for different bikes, buy I'm starting to think I'm going to have to change to the wave for all.

I know some of you will ask, so here is/was my wave list.

Harley's, Cruzers...Low hand out (7 O'clock). Touring bikes (Gold Wings), Beamers... hand out straight (9 O'clock).
Crotch Rockets and Spiders... Wave just of Grip. Scooters....only if they would wave first. ::)

I waved at everyone when I had my crotch rocket, and still do. I have to say the scooters are the funniest though. They're like '... hunh? Who me?...' and kind of look around. With the Stryker it's harder for the snobs to recognize that it's a metric so sometimes I get a half a**ed wave. Will never understand them... LOL

MYLIFE, very nice! that's an astute approach as i've heard! lol the guys on scoots sometimes aren't even looking for it so they don't wave back.

and Crazy, what if the guy rides but he just happens to be in his truck cartin his kids around? this happens to me sometimes. i'll be picking the kids up from grandma's and a group of like 3 bikes will pass from the other direction i normally will throw a peace out there while i'm holding the wheel

yep, like most I wave at all folks on 2 wheels, even those dam bicyclists. I used to get waved at when I'd be riding my little 60cc minibike down the side of the road. I asked my dad why all the bikers waved at me and he told me it was a sign of respect and to make sure I give it back. ****, that was 35 yrs ago. I always love to see the little kids on their minibikes and scooters, half of em almost ditch it trying to wave back they get so excited.

Now that is a **** of a way to wave to someone. Here's to hoping i get one of those soon. ;D

I wave to everyone, but it does get under my skin when riders dont even attempt to wave back and it is not the harley guys, they always wave, it's the midlife crisis guys that never seem to wave... No offense midlife ;)
