no biker code. there is things some do like wave or wave back, signal for cops ahead, etc. personlay i dont think of other bikers as "brothers" becasue the truth is there are many people that i would not want to be around outside of riding or eading their posts.

Wow, maybe there is no bikers Code but maybe we should make up some.
Like
1. If you see a fellow biker in need, assist them.
2. Always great a fellow biker with respect.
3. remember that it is always Us VS Them
just a few codes like that, would help. What do you all think?

i only agree with helping a biker in need. Respect is earned and not given to someone becasue they ride. i dont think having a "us" vs. "them" mentality is a healthy one.

I think it's just nice to wave at other bikers. I wave at everyone. I have a CBR1000RR and a Harley Fatboy. I have noticed that I always get waves from other Harley riders when I'm on the Harley, and only about half of them wave at me when I'm on my Honda. I think that's pathetic. To be prejudice against someone because of the brand bike they are riding? I think those kind of people give Harley a bad name and it shows their simple mindedness. I wonder if they are also prejudice against other races and the opposite too? :eh:

I wave at everyone. I also notice that "cruiser" riders rarely wave back. Back in the day when I rode cruisers, they all waved. It is a nice friendly gesture. In the end, we are all brothers and sisters and should look out for each other just like we look out for each other on this board.

a biker tapping his helmet means a cop is around? Good to know. Is it a bad habit to pull up next to a random biker and make small chat? I'll be on a buell which i've read from tons of forums that it is liked by streetbikers because it's naked and nimble in corners, and loved by cruisers/harleys because it has the throaty sound and harley name attached. Who knows. I can't wait till the end of the month to get my bike already

why would you pull up to someone and talk while they are riding? maybe you mean at a stop light or something? i don't see the need to talk to people i don't know but if you did it to me i guess i wouldn't care

lol who knows around here. I'll just throw down the peace sign at everyone. **** 'em if they don't wave bike, they're squids. I think bikers have a sort of bond with each other. They truly know how difficult and dangerous it is, yet risk it to enjoy the feeling of freedom. The more i think about riding, the more my patience wears down to the months end. You are all lucky bastards for owning bikes

Very true. I ride a metric cruiser and wave at everybody. Up here in College Station almost everyone waves back. Usually the only ones that don't are the lone Harley riders w/ no helmet or gear at all. Most Harley riders in groups or with a helmet wave back as do other metric cruisers and sportbikes.

18 years of riding and its always been that way.... Some wave and some dont.... dont let anothers un-friendliness deter you from being yourself. Wave if they dont wave back then dont give it a second thought... just keep your eyes on the road and not looking to see who waves and dont wave.... I have pulled up to many riders at lights and I always give them a "nice Bike" comment and they pull away smiling... If i can make someone proud or smile then I have done a good deed in my eyes. Small talk can also be good for strangers... who knows what is on their mind at the time of you being friendly and polite...may change someones mind or better their day. After all people are too busy to take time out of their day to appreciate life and all it has to offer... That guy you see at the light maybe a new rider.. new to the area.. maybe looking for someone to ride with or may know of some back roads you would enjoy... never know they may become your best friend one day. I take time out to be friendly to everyone and it has opened many doors to me, many friendships and made some things possible that may have not been.
Afterall I met AJ riding before this board was even around.... met Paniro at the track.... and Racerx at a benefit... and i am here to tell you most are completely different in person vs. text.
