    Yes, but I suspect that if they are on an HD you intentionally over-cook it. :wink:

    You're overthinking it. Probably hand motion is a minor wave, then hand on knee. I've done that on my dual sport. I acknowledge others. I just don't do the big Mickey Mouse wave... :wave

    i wave at everyone, even and especially scooters, unless i'm downshifting quickly or in a really technical section of road. i don't expect a return wave. if my wave pisses you off, consider it my little gift supporting you in your dedication to antipathy! :evil

    Yesterday I saw a kid looking despondent in the back seat of a car with his family, staring at me as I rode by. He lit up when I waved at him.

    I often ride with my hand on my knee, and I usually give a big five fingered dorky wave just cause. :lol3

    If you're taking it personal that someone else doesn't wave back, or gives you a pirate diss, you're doing it wrong. Ride to have fun, fuck what anyone else thinks.

    I figured it out!

    We have our middle finger advrider salute, right. It signifies that we just don't give a shit or whatever.

    Well the cruiserforum guys have one too apparently. Theirs signifies "come sit on my lap"...

    Awesome! I was coming back from Woodmans in Essex, Mass http://www.woodmans.com/ with my Parents, and my sister, in something like 1967, and I saw about 100 Hells Angels pulled over on the side of Rte 128! I don't remember what car we were in, but wherever it is, there is a permanent imprint of my face on the passenger side rear window!!! It was so fookin cool!! :D
