    I have noticed in the past 3 months of riding the streets, backroads and twisties in the Western area of Melbourne that no one greets back. Am I the only numpty waving/greeting my fellow biker?

    The unwritten rule with Harley and BMW owners generally don't greet the plebs.

    Isit my deodorant or do people just not do it Melbourne?

    Fire away and please don't get on your back foot if own a Harley or BMW. It's just a gentle joke, I said generally.

    Do you greet or wave?

    Catch you all on the road. If our paths ever cross, I'm the one with the immigrant accent and biltong in the backpack.

    Most Harley riders don't wave as there to busy concentrating on the road conditions in front of them. BMW riders are old and losing eye sight so don't feel like your getting neglected. The others who don't wave are to busy looking tough or there that far up them self's they notice nothing. There's good motorcyclists on all brands so lets not stereotype the majority.

    Wave to everyone. Better to be the optimistic fool than the cranky bugger.

    It is funny you mentioned that but I have always waved at cops on motorcycle and they always waved back at me... Then again in the country you get cop waving back at you even in the cars...

    I think the fool in mine plain bailed cause he was scared of the corner or his front brake (and probably both)

    In your video something screwy with bike set up, maybe he needed to power out of it.
