Anyhow...

When someone gives me the finger while I'm driving--whether they're a rider on an adventure bike or some raving lunatic in a car (whom I might have just cut off)--I give them a big grin and a thumbs up...much better than flipping them back.

I give 'em a snappy military salute right back. If I can't pull the right hand off the throttle give it to them left-handed.

If they smile then I give 'em a thumbs up.

I don't wave. I only salute when I actually know the rider. Saluting is a sign of respect, and why the fuck should I respect someone I don't even know? What if I salute someone on a GS with an ADV and FYYFF sticker, and, in real life, they also own a harley? Or wear a suit when they work?

I don't wave, I rarely salute, and, except for rare occasions, I ride solo. But that's just me. The rest of you FFs can do whatever you want.

But I do get saluted regulary- usually by cagers pissed because I'm riding like a hooligan. I don't salute back. If they're lucky, I look them in the eye, smile, and pull a wheelie.

God forbid you salute someone who wears a suit to work! Kind of a weird comment, but whatever works for you...

I wasn't always a no-salute kind of guy. I used to flip people off regularly. I found out that if you flip the bird at a working man (or woman), chances are, they'd flip it back, and maybe you'd get into a road-rage situation (which is AWESOME for getting the adrenaline flowing!), but if you flip off a guy in a suit, he'll call the cops. The suit-wearers feel all, like, entitled, and they feel like they're not accountable to the same rules, laws, and decorum of normal people. Unless I actually know someone, I'll generalize, stereotype, and make assumptions. I surely won't show any un-do respect.

And then there's common curtesy, which we're not talking about at all.

One other thing:

AAAH, honesty!
From the word Honor/honour. Hon'est: 1. archaic. Honorable; hence, creditable; suitable. 2. Characterized by integrity and straightforwardness in conduct, thought, speech, etc; free from fraud....
4. Open; frank; as, an honest countenance.....

Does seem to me like the Dark Side has a lot more light in it than the surface-friendly Light Side of the Force....
I'm being drawn into it....cool calm darkness....mmmm

Thanks to the thread instigator for a story about how all cages are out to kill us no matter how many stickers proclaiming their own self goodness or affiliation with whomever are attached to the back of them. Hey, I had a dude almost smashing me down when he came out from a stop sign whitout looking and on the back he had one of those "Motorcycles are everywhere".....

heh, OK, you got me there, especially in DC where I used to live, people get all indignant and act like you're violating their rights (not sure what rights) if you do something they don't like.

yeah, because you're completely unaware that putting a sticker might draw just that kind of attention.

Go back to your BMW forum. ADV is not for sniveling snobs.
