I wave as often as possible (to scooters and Harleys too), but when there are multiple lanes between us sometimes I get a little nervous because it might confuse the cages around us.

It kind of me off when I wave and they just look at me like ":/:WTF is wrong with you?" and I know this is what they're thinking because I can see the expression on their face because they aren't wearing a real helmet. [/rant]

Yea, I wave but like someone said before. I usually dont get a wave back from the Harleys. Now, i think twice if its worth waving to them.

Where's the luv? lol
