    I wandered out to pack the bike on the Vegas morning of our recent Moab trip and saw it just like that...sometimes you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right :D

    Err...don't you think that your willingness to raise your middle finger, in front of the young children, was the proximate cause for that little unpleasant episode? Perhaps the GS rider isn't the one who should reconsider his actions here.

    Brilliant!!

    Im an 18 year old and I think the ADV salute is pretty stupid and vulgar anyway. My dad and brother and I want to introduce an alternate ADV salute as the salute from Monty Python's Life of Brian - the People's Front of Judea salute :lol3

    Since when is an ADV sticker and invitation to flip some body off? If you don't know the history and you don't know the rider with the sticker then you just being a jerk off. In the same class as the folks that wear the Von Dutch hats or the Ed Hardy shirts.

    If I was on my bike and another bike pulled up alongside me and flipped me off, I'd know what it was all about and consider myself to have made another friend.

    If I'm on my bike and a car driver flips me off there's no way I can be sure that it's because of the sickers on my bike. I'm not going to get all physical on someone because of it, though, and it wouldn't make me mad 'cos really what it is to get upset about? If I then saw that they had an ADV sticker on their car (I have one on mine) I'd understand what it was about and appreciate the gesture. If they didn't have the sticker on the car, or I didn't see it I'd be unsure, but that's all.

    To the OP - that sure is a funny story! Thanks!

    I don't think you were there for that were you?

    Read this and see if you can figure it out.

    Not a personal attack against you DAKEZ. Just trying to make a point here.

    That's the same lame arguement used on why should not wave to another rider.

    If your that pissy about the "salute" then you should be hunting down the originator of the "salute".

    Oh yeah and take the stickers off of your bike if your panties get bunched that easily.

    I don't know about you or anyone else, but when I placed the stickers on my bike, it was partially with the hope of being spotted and saluted.

    Bad example there Mike.

    Knary is very quick with the finger... As are all the PDX area ADV-nuts I know.

    Up here if you crash and still have a pulse the cameras come out to record the carnage and get a picture of a salute before they render first-aid.:lol3

    So Mike, :ken I don't care much if you feel you earned it or not. :1drink

    ADV-nuts are just a diverse group of riders that happen to have a great web-site to go to so they can communicate.

    If you feel there is something you need to do to "earn" the right then I would suggest you have insecurity issues. Not a personal attack against you Mike. Just trying to communicate here.

    RIDE RIDE RIDE. :ricky

    Nope, perfect example. Scott doesn't randomly go giving the finger to folks he doesn't know. You're not saluting the sticker, you're saluting person.

    When you use my name 3 times in the post and make a half-assed psychological evaluation based on something you think I said because you're too lazy to read or to dumb to understand what I said, and then say it's nothing personal. It comes across as insincere. :lol3

    Just so we're clear, I'm not against thowing the finger. I do it to the people I've ridden with, camped with, or other wise have met and know. When some body does it to me that I've never met I think it's stupid. Like the HD rider who keeps calling me bra cuz we're both on a bike.

    So for all you folks who feel you need a finger or a wave to belong.

    Feel better now? :lol3
