Hmmm. No one told me about the precise angle of the forearm, so I must have been doing it wrong all these years. For a moment there, I was concerned I was unknowingly participating in a barbaric ritual. It's good to know I won't need to behead any chickens though.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

The mention of old Honda ads reminded me of the Elvis movie "Clambake". Trying to remember which bike he rode in that movie when he swapped identities with another fella. Don't remember seeing any hand signals in the movie.

I always throw a peace sign to drivers so it makes sense to me to drop a downward peace sign to riders. Didn't know it signified a two tired salute.

The nod. Standard biker form of acknowledgement which does not require removal of your hand from the bars in case of suicidal rabbits etc. I always acknowledge anyone on two or three wheels. I actually own a scooter although heavily modded so I'm not so painfully slow. When I'm older and no longer able to deal with two wheels then I'm sure I'll be in trike country.
