+1 and well said

Only time I won't wave back is either when I didn't see you, or when I'm turning (need both hands ).

I wave to everyone on two wheels I don't care if they are on a vespa, however, when I wave to guys on HD's and I know they saw me wave but they are just to good and too "bad " to wave at some scrub on a Yami, I have been known to throw up the salute, but that goes for anyone not just HD riders.

It's the Harley riders who don't wave back to me. Even flip me off instead of wave.

The best one was this guy all decked out in his saturday road warrior gear who gave me the bird with his hand tucked way down by his hip - passive/agression I guess - Thought about turning around to buzz him and give him the shakes but didn't - still, I don't want someone to go down & mess up their bike even if they are an

I almost never look to see if they are waving back or not. I'd probably be if I saw someone flip me off for no reason though. That aint too cool.

I try to wave at everyone that I pass up. If I don't see you because my attention is preoccupied with something else well, "Sorry" in advance to anyone one this board that I don't catch waving at me. All bikers okay in my book unless you do something not to be. I even gone on a ride with a bunch of HD guys that live in front of my moms house. P.S Yes it felt wierd being the only sportbiker there that was fully geared. I stuck out like a sore thumb.

I wave at everyone. If someone doesn't wave back I figure they may not have seen me or there is a chance they are a noob and don't like to take their hands off the bars. Either way, I just go on my way if they don't wave.

I wave, if they wave back then good on ya bro.
If not, then I might show you my IQ, mostly I'd just say whatever and not let it spoil my ride.

HD riders are notorius for turning their noses up at SB riders.

It bothered me when I first started riding. Could care less who waves now.

Thanks guys, I should have just let it go like I always do... I hadn't really meant to start yet another "wave" thread. It just seems like we're (all of us) sometimes trying to divide ourselves into categories to which we are mutually exclusive, which I don't get... nor do I really care. Almost everybody I've met that actually "rides". are the greatest people you would ever wanna meet. I am not defined by what I ride, if that was the case I would be one f**ked up individual...

My bike is my only means of transportation and since I'm gonna head cross town.... I'll see ya'll out there (and I will wave!)

Be safe, Jeff

They must have been radical Islamic Terrorists, or even Commies, seeing the Red, White, and Blue waving above your head! Should have gotten their liscence plates, so the DHS could send their to Guantanamo!

Who would flip off a guy with the Flag waving high on his bike?
