Hi All-

I'm friendly and wave to everyone on two wheels including motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, and bicycles.

yeah, was just about to say, need to add scooters in there. I don't wave to them, since they, most of the time, are driving on sidewalks.

Anyone brave enough to face the cages with me is well deserving of a wave. I even wave to bicyclists on ocasion, they tend to ride on the road were I live. I'm curious though as to were the wave started, and do different areas wave differently. When I'm riding in northern FL people tend to wave full fingered and at level with the bars, but around here its a two or three fingered wave down low along side the fairings. Anyone else notice this?

Sportbikes only. Cruisers if they wave first or I know them. Sorry, don't wave to kids, mopeds, bicycles, or dumbass Squids with no shirts on, ect. More of a stare with a little head shake to say "your a dip-shit" than anything. The bird has come out to cages and all of the above too. Not prejudice on giving that out to deserving people.

I'll wave to both, though more often to sportbike riders as some cruisers (namely harley riders) don't wave back. I'll also wave at kids in cars if they stare, call me simple but it amuses me.

and if you're well deserving, I give the noob wave advanced shown here: bike hand signals
