Combine with your wink and I reckon you'll be on a winner Keef. On the TDM though, if you do it on that German rubbish it won't work.

Isn't that how we first met?
probably got a wave back from about half of the bikes i saw today so
one of these may save a lot of effort
glows in the dark so can be seen at night that im waving and is a safety thing as well
Been riding in Europe for 6 months now, most everyone waves here, friendly bunch for sure. Oh except the French, they lift their leg. Weird, but hey they are French after all. Personally i'm a nodder, so i've had to adapt.
When driving down under taking your hand off the throttle is required to return a wave.
My understanding is they do a "nod" down under unless ya driving thunda....damn HD pirates.
I am in Canada and had someone do that to me the other day....we are bilingual though so.......
Sydney in the 80s when I started riding was always a nod, never wave.
I always still nod, over the years I noticed that more and more riders wave, never HD riders but that is nothing I have given any thought just the way it is.
Oh and outback driving has always been index finger up.
Hahahahahahaha, good man!

When I rode a Beemer I waved at all the Harley Riders to piss them off.
When I ride my Harley I wave at all the Beemer riders to piss them off.
When I ride my KTM I don't wave at all to piss everyone off.
But really, I only wave to other riders if it's pissing rain, because I know they're the real deal and not 'cos playing'.
When some mates and I toured the US on our Harley's we had so many riders waving at us that it started to give us the shits. When you pass hundred of bikes every day it gets old real fast.
Once upon a time riders were in the minority and it was a way of life, for many it was their only transport so there was a common bond. But now so many people recreationally ride who have nothing in common other than owning a motorcycle so the common bond is pretty thin. Break down on the side of the road and see how many bikes go straight past.
And that somehow becomes an excuse to be all those bikes plus 1?
Karma is a bitch, I do what helps me sleep soundly at night.
I have broken down several times in my life.... In Europe, in Africa and yes even in Australia (last time it was in the Nullarbor). I stop for everyone on the side of the road, not just motorcycle...
It takes a second to ask "are you ok?" Most smile back and nod a yes... If you have ever been stranded on the side of the road, you would know what it is like, that fear that slowly build up as you start to realise how bad it can get... You never know, you could save a life...
I'm actually quite proud and happy to see that in Australia. particularly in the bush, everybody get out of their way to help if they can....
City people.... well.... I think there is a minority that are still learning...
Unusual name for a dog
Lucky for you that's legal here now.
Karma out of it
Karma nget it
…….sort of works
An old mate in Darwin had a workshop blue healer... called Fuhkya'...
"get in the ute..."
"where are ya'...?"
speaking of dogs and greetings...
why are we so "up in arms" about waving (nodding, winking etc.) or not...?
Motorcycling is an individuals passtime... that many choose to share their experiences with likeminded indviduals... or not. If you wave... and the other party does not wave back - their loss. If someone waves to you... and you decline, maybe it's you that just missed a fleeting moment to "chime" in on another individual enjoying their passtime... no biggie.
It could be worse... we could be genetically programmed like dogs when greeting one another
can you imagine the sort of debacle an ADV get together like Thrasher's TT would look like...
all "nose to tail" around the campfire...
