Route 66 Motor Sports is the HD dealer, but they are also the Honda dealer. I think they are mostly waiting for people like me to decide they need to move up to something bigger, and a lot louder. It won't happen with me. If I move up it will be something like a Vulcan 900.

People are pretty good about the wave around here, and it was mentioned at the end of the class. Both instructors own both HDs and Rebels. However, the class was not taught using Rebels.

Mojorisn-- I know you posted this a while ago. But I want to know how it went?

Life is either a exciting daring adventure or nothing at all!!

I have been to bike night a few time since that post and haven't caught any flack for being on a Rebel, matter of fact more people come stand around and look at my bike then they do some of the $30k HDs.

As long as this thread has been revived and to be clear; are you saying it is like the V for victory signal, but instead pointed at a 45 degree angle toward the ground? I have seen it, but was never quick enough to see all the details.

CJC in Tucson AZ riding a 2007 Rebel. Back on a motorcycle after 40 years away. Sure is fun!!!!

Bike Week here at the beach where I live. There are, literally, thousands of bikes in the area. I went for a long ride for dinner last evening (from DE, through MD, to VA), about 120 mile round trip. Passed tons of bikes on the road and among the HDs - about half of them did give the Biker Wave. The other half were afraid to take one hand off of their bar. LOL

I'll bet a good number of the bikes in town don't get ridden more than a few hundred miles a year. Such a shame.

Because they know a slick machine when they see one. It's neat to watch.

A relaxed "V" if you will, there is no real formality to the method, you are wishing someone "rubber side down" or celebrating 2 tired vehicles. I think in the course I took, they described it as "the yellow pages fingers". BTW if your clutch is engaged it is acceptable to nod your head.

I have seen it a bunch of different ways some full hand some a pointing finger, usually it's more casual and relaxed so no one will judge you, just drop a hand and hold out a couple fingers. You wouldn't wanna be someone like that shiny new bike owner and end up being a topic in some random forum while we discussed different fantasized methods of causing you to go rubber side up would you now???? (Marbles..)

Shakira is 7 and she does this cheeky "jazz hands" version from the elbow that cracks me up, She had asked what it's all about when I show a "claw" at other people. and it made me realize I "low two" with my thumb out too!

WARNING: Do not Google "Low Two" for definition and images!
