do ya wave to people on scooters/ mopeds?

every morning when i go to work on Nasa rd 1. there's this little shop that opened up that sells scooters/mopeds. soo i been seeing a load on nasa rd 1. i wave to every single one of those motherfkers and they don't even wave back. i just wave just to be nice, so i wasn't sure if their 2 wheels were appreciated enough to be waved at

hey, u ever think maybe your just being an a-hole and they dont yet have enought rider confidence to take their hand off the bar yet?

i guess they could nod or whatever tho, i dunno.

some folks dont ride for the ride you know. some people honestly just get a scooter cause their cheap, cheap gas, and insurance, etc...and nothing more.

Man, I live and ride daily up here in College Station, where the sportbike population is really growing, unfortunately the majority are 18 yr old college freshman, and are very squidly. I expect that if i wave to a chopper/cruiser that they might not wave back, but when a sportbike doesnt wave back it kinda irratates me.
I mean, we all have 2 wheels, we're all battling the cagers, and we're all in this together.

I completely agree with everything you wrote. I ride from League City to Galveston 5-6 days a week and it is the samething. I do also have to agree with what has been said above, "I am not a fan of waving to scooters, but will wave back or at least nod" and "lots of riders are in it just for the gas save". But man where is that TWO Wheel Love?
