I never heard of anyone having problems waving at other bikes lol. Usually people just extend their left arm and give a peace sign when seeing another bike.

sounds like u were leaning to hard on the handle bars, grip the tank with your knees to relax your weight on the bars, use your abdomen (sp) to hold yourself up, then when u let go of one bar to wave, u wont turn the wheel.....(as bad).....

you know it isn't mandatory to wave.

You should only wave if:
  1. you are in a situation that allows you to remove your hand from the bar (not turning, not braking, and so on...)
  2. you are comfortable waving
  3. it's not a Harley...j/k wave at Harleys.
  4. other people may want to add...

Just be comfortable. Worry less about what others are doing on bikes, and more about what is in your ability limits. They don't teach waving at MSF...

Think thats all for right now, but (exclamation on the word ) a new rider I've definatly learned & really felt the need of taking the MSF as soon as possible! I'm sure I will be posting more things as I embark on this journey
Tell us how you turn your motorcycle. Do you just lean and not move the handlebars? How does that work? Have you heard of countersteering before? If you haven't I would stay off the bike until you take the MSF,before you get injured. Seriously
