biker wave

Since ive started riding ive noticed a certain wave other bikers give its more like a point to the ground type thing as you pass does this have a certain meaning or is it just the biker way of saying glad your in our world now

They should teach the wave at MSF training! I did not have a clue. I mentioned once before that I waved to everyone like Gilligan on Gilligan's Island. (For those old enough to know what I am talking about).

Was 2002 Rebel, now 2008 Vulcan 500

I had my first bad experience waving at a HD the other day. I waved at a guy riding a new or newer bright yellow Sportster 1200, I did my normal wave and instead of him waving back he lifted his had off the grip just high enough to give me a sideways bird. I had seen this guy in town several times in the past and wasn't expecting that. I made me a little mad and I almost turned around to see what his malfunction was. I think he was just jealous of my bike .

Welcome to the club. He's probably jealous that you can take your hand completely off the bars to wave.

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

Two down usually gets a good response, i had the same thing happen that happened to m.r. Makes me want to carry a bag full of rubber balls... For them and for tailgaters.

I don't care how fast it goes, it just feels cool.

Give me his tag number, I'll drag 'em down main street chained to my rebel.

It takes all kinds out there. I've seen mostly nice riders with a few who refuse to wave or even acknowledge your existence. Oh, well, it's not worth ruining your ride. Not your fault they have crappy attitudes.

I'll be going with my brother tonight for bike night at Ft. Thunder HD. It will be interesting to see if I get any flack for being on a Honda.
