i felt like a heel when i first got my bike...

i couldn't figure out what the deal with everybody waving at me was until i talked with the harley rider in my office. after that, i make it a point to wave at all bikes including scooters.

I wave at everyone on 2 wheels, cops included, usually get a wave back including the po-po's if the hoggly super forcefield squids don't wave back I let em know they're number one in my book, or would that be international relations. seriously I've been riding for over 40 years and still wave so fukk ya's if you been riding less and wanna be a douchebagapottomus and not wave.

I wave too, everybody, even cyclists, when I did the SMR, there were a lot of them, as soon as I did, they waved back and smiled, I don't care if somebody doesn't, I just feel happy by riding and I try to proyect that.

I like pulling up next to them and waiving. I do this because it sadly happened to me as a teenager on my scooter. I felt embarrassed. So I said this I'm getting a real bike!

Most I have seen are douchebags. Now I have been shocked at the people here in Alabama since I have been here. Everybody waves and my arm starts getting tired. At first I really didn't believe I was being waived at by the Harley guys. Impressive.

I got waved to today for my first time!

I waved back but it was night time, we we're going opposite ways on 1960 and well it was dark but I tried to wave back in time when I noticed it.
