One guy this morning waved, then realized I was popo and jerked his hand back so fast it looked like he burned himself.

I get waves TO me about half as often as I do when I'm on my personal ride. So before butthurt, I can attest it works both ways.

Used to wave at them but they for the most part don't wave back so stopped. They are working and understand. Sounds like a good gig but I don't know that it'd be as much fun if it became a job.

Commuting to work this morning on 249, saw a motor cop escorting a oversize load. Gave him a wave and he waved back. Just for what its worth, waved at a harley rider less then a minutes before.... nothng.

I do but they never wave back. There's a Cop in the Clay Rd & HWY-6 who also rides a Victory Cross Country Police Edition. I see him often but he never waves back.

If I see a moto cop in time I like to pat my helmet at them. I've gotten a few laughs for that, but in general I don't wave to anyone.

Usually wave at anything on two wheels, whether they wave back or not, has never affected me.

I usually wave, especially to Hardleys mid-corner at full lean.. that's always good for a laugh!
