so why don't you wave to scooter riders?

do you think they're something worse then you?
They can use slider on turn as well.

i do, i wave. sometimes. i don't really wave at anyone unless they wave first, though. if i "wave" its just two fingers up off the grip, or a nod of the helmet. but i ride scooters also and came from that side of things so its all good

thing is scooter riders oft times don't wave, or even acknowledge mc riders. they just scoot along like i do. when scooting

Same reason I don't wave to those three wheeler things.

They are not real motorcycles.

I wave to scooter riders. They don't wave back. I think they are scared to take their hands off the handle bars.

I are one, and I wave regardless if I am on the P200 or the F700

I don't wave to scooters :p


But I do scream in my helmet if I wave to a HD rider by accident and get nothing back

I love waving at scooters as it really freaks them out.

And as far as those three wheeled things not being real motorcycles, Think again Bucko. This is meant in jest.

Full gear and no gloves? That's one reason not to wave.
