With that logic, you act as if you are not aware that when doing things like riding motorcycles and driving boats, waving is a friendly/courteous thing to do

But what's the difference? That's all I'm saying. I wouldn't go out of my way to wave to people in another car. I won't on a bike either. I'll be nice and return a , but I myself won't often be the first to wave. Will give a thumbs up to a bad looking car/bike tho.

Sorry, to hear that... A simple Hi, does not require that much effort. And, your never know it might make a difference in someones life...

I have had people I know and ride with often do it to me. But if I don't know you and you roll up next to me at the light and pull that . I will catch you and kick you and your bike over at the next light.

i have a super loud exhaust and i ride with ear plugs. people start talking to me all the time at lights....
i just kinda nod in aggreance.

i rolled up behind a bunch of squids a while back on 146. when they took off from the light they were trying to do wheelies, but they were all over both lanes holding up traffic and acting like idiots. it was embarrasing because from the outside it looked like i was with them. and i had nothing to do with them.
another reason i dont really talk to people at lights. you nevr know how they are going to act when the light turns green.

What am I supposed to do, turn around to acknowledge them? Oh please. You want acknowledgment, man up and pull up next to me.

Try to imagine how it is for female riders. You get some of the dumbest stiff d!cks who think they MUST say something. I am like "wtf, so IF you ride WHERE is your bike? Oh, you got a 250? well I'm sorry but you suck." *and NO I don't have anything against 250's so don't fkn start*

And I will nod at you then, if you try to talk to me I will give you the simple yea, no, sup, and bye.



*BUT if you come up to me when I am off of my bike and speak intelligently as a human not like I am just some dumb chic on a bike, I will happily school you on track days and motohouston.com and riding.

i assumed that's what it was. Seemed kind of odd, but maybe it was the rear of the jacket that looked different than the blue suzuki jacket. ?
