I saw this on SBN and wanted to see everyones reactions over here,.........When your stopped at a red light and everyone is looking at you because they all wish they had a bike of their own, do you do anything funny? Some people were saying how they would shout out random things to cagers, get off bikes and dance to loud cage music, etc, etc,...............

I know what you are saying. I hate that when they are just staring at your bike and when you look over at them an they give you that cocky ass what's up head nod. Like they have something in common with you. Another one is when they ask you what kind of bike it is. Not like the decals on the tank or fairing gives it away or anything.

Sorry, I was a bit off the subject. I have not got my dance on, but I always wanted to. I wanted to bust a running man right by someone's driver side window, rip my helmet off and twirl it around above my head by the strap.

To me I am simply eyeing the red light, the possible amber of the light about to stop the other traffic & if there is traffic on each side are they stopping as the amber/red comes on their side.
I do not have the time to look around & see if people are LOOKING at my m/c.
Possibly this is something younger riders feel(?) since they think people are looking at their shinny m/c, but it is not so bar the fact that they are simply ANOTHER vehicle at the crossing..

Since Im almost continually in traffic on my bike Im almost continually stared at. I forgot about it a long time ago. On those rare occasions when I take one of our cars I stare at bikes too. In fact, when Im on my bike I stare at other bikes. Whats not to like? You're sitting in your car, the light is red, what else are you going to look at?

I always look at other bikes. It don't matter if I'm on mine or in my truck. I just like bikes. As for sitting at lights, I don't generally pay attention to other people looking at me. Sometimes I will wave at kids though.

I just tolerate others

I hate it when they try and start up a conversation with you about the bike, or people that they/you know who also ride. I always have on a helmet...so its like trying to pick up a cute girl on a busy dance floor with the music blasting. I purchased a iridium visor to block my features, and make me less approachable in traffic. I get the occational head knod still though. I am curious if any of the rest of you have ever been flashed in traffic before by a group of females in a car....just curious, or is it just me?

Ditto, kids love bikes & it gives a positive image for them.
Sooooo what you are saying is that the ass scratch would be a bad thing with kids near by? :D :p

I usually just look straight forward. I have a chrome visor so you can't see my :rolleyes: at the little rice burner cars trying to race me.

Can't dance, otherwise I might do the running man.... knowing my luck I would slip on a oil slick from a Harley and land on my ass though.

Has anyone seen those toyota celica commercials where there's this red celica parked in a neighborhood? One time there's this old man walking by yelling at it, stating "damn kids, slow down!"
Or a dog goes chasing it and runs into it thinking it's hauling arse.
Or the chip'r that tells him to pull over? It just looks fast sitting there! My red CBR looks fast sitting there and often I catch others checking her out. Good to be king. Sorry...think i was just rambling...:D
