I know when I ride my bike, I wave to all the other bikers on the road wether they are sport bikes or cruisers. I actually got asked today when I was filling up at a gas station by a guy on a cruiser why I wave to everyone. Told him it was kinda like a respect thing as well as a 'group' thing.

Anyone else do this? Anyone get the same response that I did today?

i wave to everyone too. it's like harley and cruiser riders think they belong to this elite group or something, and we're not worth acknowledging. the way i see it, we are all brothers and sisters on 2 wheels. after all it's about the love of the ride, not the make of the bike. i'm just gonna keep on wavin'.

See, I agree. That's why I'm gonna have to get better at riding so I can do what Gas Man does with his feet on the sliders just to piss 'em off! :dthumb:

I waive at all bikes unless I am in a turn dragging my knees and I'm not going to dare take my hands off the bars to waive! But I noticed on my 700 some mile trip this weekend, all sport bike riders waive back, but pver half of those stuck up f'n harley @ss holes don't waive unless you're on a Harley or some sort of cruiser.

:rofl: that's clever! i wouldn't have thought of doing that.
I put my feet on the frame sliders all the time, I do it for a comfort level when I'm on the interstate cruising. Most of the time my feet are on the rear sets, and I'm laying down on the tank at 150 or so.

NOBODY ON TWF should EVER be doing 150+ mph down the interstate, we are ALL law-abiding citizens that follow ALL rules of the road when riding out bikes.

Most the wing riders are old farts and have the attitude of an old fart towards sport bikes.
There are a few true motorcycle enthuses ridding wings out there but, not many.

You people are way too too friendly. I do it on bikes, but only in my cage if I know the person. Then again, you can't really see into my cage with the 5% tint all the way around.

But I wouldn't just waive to anyone, kinda learned that growing up in NY. You could get seriously hurt if you do that there. Or if you just say hit to people for no reason and you don't know them and you're not from the area. Many, many other factors why you just don't say hi or wave to people you don't know...
