Im not sure if this b.s happens anywhere but riding this weekend I noticed something that kind of bugged me. One of the things I enjoy most about riding is the biker wave. Its a brootherhood thing that sets us apart from the cagers, but I have noticed these weekend warriors on their fancy dressed bikes turn their noses up at us sport bikers. Every sport bike rider I wave at always waves back but these urban riders always snubb me. Now I expect this kind of behavior from the Old school harley riders but from others show a little freaking respect... Just a little rant sorry if I came off sounding like a squid..

Ah you must be new. For the most part, I can't pay someone on a cruizer to wave to me, even though I always initiate the wave to every single bike on the road. There are those that do wave though, just not many.

If you were to wave at me on my 600 or 929 you would also be shocked, as you seemingly are, as I do not wave back or at others. Many European riders do not go for the American waving fad.

You see I come from a group of basically Brit riders that moved over here to Cdn after WWII & WE simply did not wave & I have not changed after 57 yrs of riding. I am the Cdn that got to working, riding & competeting on comp from said Brit riders.
