Do you raise your arm up? I'm always worried someone thinks I'm signaling a right turn. I usually "point" my arm toward the road and wave.

Simple arm out usually. If I'm busy/distracted, the head nod is all they get.

<hijack>I'd heard there are specific signals for cops ahead, but didn't really understand them. Are tapping the top of your helmet or moving your hand up and down common? What else is out there?</hijack>

arm out, but down towards the ground so as not to confuse with a Left turn hand motion...usually will give them the Peace sign too. :cool:

I try to go low now as that is what the people who wave at me do. I'm still new, so I look to others for guidance!

I usually ride right at them and see how soon they back off.. Puss*es.. lol...

If they are lucky I beotch slap them as I go by.. Take that beotch..

Seriously though it is a quick wave therefore not construed as a left turn. Usually higher than my left turn signal. Otherwise I just crack the throttle open with the clutch in and they get the picture...

I usually reach straight out from the left grip and point at them, or a low 5...Who cares what the cagers think, I am usually leaving them behind anyway

Head nod mostly to cruisers, standards and motorcycle cops. Keeps my neck nice and limber. Sometimes a peace sign to the ground to hot sport bikes.

Who signals when changing lanes??? I signal if I see a cop, or if they cars are too close where I can't sweeze in, like at a light so maybe they'll let me in...

anyway, I just extend arm straight out with 2 fingers.
