Thumbs up do you wave?

A couple years ago when I started riding street I used to wave to everybike I passed.

Figured out most harley guys don't wave back. So now I only wave to harley guys If they do first which rarley happens.

And sportbike riders are pretty consistant at waving. Why do the harleys hate us so much? Except for at the lonstar rally everyone loves everyone.

Guys that wear no helmet or any gear I usually don't waste my time

So if ya see me ill probably be waving lol wave back

I always wave - at every bike.

Men are stupid in their hate of another because of the type of bike they ride, but my guess is that it's a contest over whose (bike) is bigger and badder.

Men are dumb.

The reason there are so many douchbags on bikes is because when you get a bike you automaticaly get a group of friends, douchbag friends.

Whats the difference between a Harley and a Hoover? The position of the dirtbag.

I ride a harley, wave at erry body and have noticed the same. Sport bikers always wave back. Some of the Harley guys are too cool or too drunk to take a hand off the bars to wave. It's all good

We are? And I usually wave unless it is a divided highway. On another note, the pic below, I see this and think of your sig.

I almost always wave. Sport bikes and adventure types almost always wave. Most cruisers will not wave unless its a Goldwing, and I ride a cruiser.
