Motorcycle Wave

Gotta love that motorcycle culture, especially with the waves. There's so many interesting videos on YouTube about it and I found an entertaining one list the various waves we can do. I'll probably start with the "too scared" before moving on to the two fingers towards the road. Maybe even the "too happy" when i'm particularly happy.

I'd probably be more of a pointer I think.. The pistol down here where I am may get taken in the wrong way...

Lol but why the "don't wave at hells angels"

I guess mostly I do the sportbike wave, either on my Indian Scout or Piaggio BV350 scooter. Around here, Harley guys (or just cruiser guys who wish they had a Harley) wave most of the time when I am on either bike, but a few ignore me if on the scooter. Funny, I recognize some that waved at me on the Indian. I wear the same clothes on either bike, so I guess it must be fear of the vehicle we ride that particular day, rather than who we are as a person.

From the few rides I've gone on with a borrowed motorcycle, Harley riders generally ignore those who aren't riding something of a similar style. Mainly cruisers and those classic looking models. A few of my friends just outright gave up waving to them because of the lack of reciprocation.

Most sport bike riders will go for the two finger wave towards the ground and I assume the same would apply for the G310 models. Though there are a few in the video I have never seen before.

Why can't we do the odd teacup tilt wave?

Not too sure... that is an interesting question though. I tried googling it but couldn't come up with anything.

****, if it's got two wheels and a motor, I wave. Sometimes I wave at bike riders too. It's all good.

Hey, there ain't anything wrong with just being a nice guy and extended and sharing a little smile and a wave. Makes the world a better place.

I just don't wave to Vespa Riders, in the motorcycle world they're like Prius owners

I'll probably be doing the "too afraid" wave for a while until I get the hang of riding with one hand only for a short amount of time. Don't think I can lift my left hand yet and do a proper wave.
