Have an ADV sticker on the back window of My pickup. Once in a while i will get a salute. Or if I see a Sticker on a bike and can get in front of em i will point my finger at the sticker and say Hello via the salute. never had a problem with it. Was rollin up I 70 in 08 and passed a member with his bike and a fully loaded Pickup pulled alongside and Saluted. He Laughed and returned it. Its all in how ya do It I think. Always makes me grin to have some one say hello that way.
Topes never seem to make me go any faster.
