I'm on a scooter... you're on whatever you ride.

Do I wave to you? Do you wave back? Am I not allowed to acknowledge you as two wheeled brethren?

Just cruised the scooter down a main thoroughfare. I passed a Harley and didn't know what to do.

He didn't wave BTW. :(

Well, the Harley rider is only going to wave at another Harley 99 times out of 100 anyway.

On the last Forest Ride I was on about 3 months ago, we were stuck behind a crew of 50cc scooters with a larger scooter + construction/reflective vest dude in the back. At some point we passed them and most people waved. I gave them my standard wavey

For the most part, ill wave to most people, but i think it needs to be both ways. About 6-7 out of 10 people I wave to, wave back.
