my signal is to look back and wave coming out of turns at the SS bike as im dragging his around twisties here in waco. But i wave at pretty much any bike i see on the road unless im more focused on riding than paying attention to see if the other guy waves back, and i tap my head if i see a cop, i just wish people would do it for me. :laughing6

So tapping the helmet is a universal sign of a cop around? That s good stuff to know. When I was riding around town in Jan. 06 There were quite a few that waved at me. Harley guys and sportbikes. Thanks to all who do. And I give every person my respect till they do something to lose it.. Stranger or friend. I only expect the same respect to be returned. Usually it is.

As far as waving is concerned. I do try to most of the time. Sometimes I get a wave back sometimes I do not.

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 pulled up to my Mom's house last weekend and there was a couple that was there visiting (they were on a Harley). The first thing that the woman said to me was "Maybe when you grow up you'll get a real bike". I'm 32 years old, never met this woman before in my life and she was talking (this was a friend of my Mom's BTW).

This proved to me that most of these people have their mind made up about certain things and really don't know when it comes down to it.

I usually wave at all bikers unless i'm in a middle of turn then I just nod my head.

Los says the best way to greet someone at a stop light is to push their kill switch right when the light turns green.

whether in the bike world or not, that's how life is... if you see a '03 bmw and see an '80 oldsmobile on the side of the road, which will you pull over and help? if it's a male or a female, would that change your answer? stuff like that.. some are open minded, some or not.. what's that saying?? don't judge a book by it's cover...

I haven't done this in a while, but a group of friends that I rode with back in Chicago would wave early on when approaching a harley or group of them. If they didn't wave back we would all stand up on our pegs waving as "BIG" as we could. Just to rub it in. Most bikes here in Texas will give you the wave, especially if you ride with a jacket, gloves and helmets. I noticed those "cruisers" who ride with there ape hanger bars, sunglasses and dew rags don't wave. Who cares....they're squids anyhow.

Neither - f*ck 'em.

Just kidding. I've only stopped and helped twice - a pregnant woman who's car broke down in the turn lane, pushed the car into the gas station by myself in the rain. And, a lady with two kids on my way back from San Antonio. This was before everyone had cell phones - now people just make a call.

I get your point though, and I agree.

I pulled up to some ape hanger guy at a stop light, and he turned my kep off when the light turned green... Well i pulled up to him at the next stop light and he said it was his way of saying "hi".. So I waited for the light to turn green, then grabbed his key and threw it way behind me then took off.. I dont think he'll be doing that to a stranger at a stop light in traffic ever again.

I've been hearing that from my father in-law for a long time, and "Why do you have 2 bikes?"
Well, because I'm WAY over 21 and can buy what I want!!! And for less than the price of his Harley I think I have some of the best bikes around.
He still doesn't get it.......:BangHead:
