I'm the 2 cool for school guy when riding, I don't point fingers unless the other rider does. If I have an exciting ride, I say HI to anyone, including cars that are nice, but don't expect a wave. Most of the time, the other riders wave, and I reply the courtesy. It doesn't make a difference unless you pull up to have a chat. And if I see a rider parked on the side, and if it's feasible for me to stop, I do so to check if everything is alright.
So stop caring whether they like your 250 or not, know that you're out there riding and improving, while they're too busy posing and wrecking. In my 1.5 year riding career, I attended bike night twice, once, I left after 30 seconds, and again with a rider I hooked up and stayed for 30 mins. It was absolutely boring, there's no point in watching others make ass of themselves.
