I always wave when I've got a free hand, no matter what the other rider's on or how he's geared up; and I figure if the other rider didn't wave back either it was a wrong moment, he didn't see me, or he's an , and I'm not losin sleep in any of those scenarios.

lol.... this is funny cause I was just wondering if others get when I don't wave. I try to but a lot of the time just can't. I'm with you guys though it is kind of weird when someone doesn't wave back. oh yeah what is the proper hand signal or position? 2 fingers or 1? arm out? up,down,up,down,left, right, left, right start?

Only time I don't wave at other bikes is when I don't see them because I'm too busy watching the idiots trying to run me over.

Yep!

I used to ride with a guy who if we were bored riding around in college, would turn around and do a full on parade king wave if he knew someone saw him and didn't wave back for a few laughs of course...

This guy ^^^^



I typically won't wave at trikes or anything with 3 wheels.
Come to think of it, I probably don't wave to scooters either...too busy chuckling.....

What? Don't judge me....

Cool Waving as you pass another rider?

I agree with rc51Rider comment, I also wave to everyone but a lot of cruisers guys seems to ignore the sportbike guys.....or maybe we are just too fast...lol

Again, sometimes its not viable. Just don't go cryin cause some Cruiser didn't wave.
Nobodys crying or getting butthurt I'm sure we all realize that sometimes its not viable as you put it, but when you wave to a biker, and he looks at you, then nothing- yea thats A bit irritating, but not that big of a deal , i'l still wave to the next guy.

wave

Oh yea , Me I will wave to all riders, if possible on my part, even H.D. guys, and cops, most of the time the biker cops wave back,The H.D. guy's usually wont. I figure if they don't wave to me maybe they will think about it and wave to the next guy.

you ever figure that maybe they didn't see you till the last second? I mean that happens a lot to me.

Again i think the concensus on this board is there are a lot of people who just can't wave cause its not viable, and you people are HD riders.
