For me, it isn't about comaradery with other riders. It is about helping each other stay alert. I don't get upset if they don't wave back, I just assume they either 1. Don't feel it's safe to take one hand off the bars, 2. Don't believe in waving, or 3. Are alseep on their bike. I have seen someone waving at me too late to respond and realized I was not even paying attention. They may have saved my life...
I like to wave too.But i dont wave at harleys anymore because i got tired of not getting one back.
Iam on a ducati so my bike isnt good enough for them.

After the way we were treated at the Barber Vintage Festival by the Ducatisti, I wouldn't complain about another marque's owners acting elitist.

Ride or park a vintage CB750 anywhere and it's hard to get away from questions or statements like "I always wanted one of those", "My ___________ had one of those" and, often with a far away look in their eyes "I had one of those, wished I never sold it".

The Harley crowd likes the Norton, the /7 with sidecar, and the German Shepherd too!

The HOG...

The HOG guys tend to be a big fan of Boris the Ural too. Or maybe it's the cute gal driving it?

I don't care what you ride, just ride!

I like those too. Every time I see a hack, I think "Damn my dog would love to ride in that thing."
