Jim C said:On my VX800, I always give the "low-cool-wave" to fellow motorcyclists. I almost always get the wave back - except in and immediately around Washington, DC. Too many people full of self-importance. Too bad, its almost like a motorcycle riding LAW that you have to wave to other riders (HD riders being the exception - their wave is usually the one-fingered type along wtih taunts about "jap-crap." Too bad that "crap" outperforms, outlasts, and outrides their 1960's technology junk).
Given this experience with motorcyclists, I don't generally initiate a wave to fellow Mo owners. On occasion, I have given them the big thumbs up like when we are side-by-side at a traffic light and the other driver looks over. That usually gets a smile and a big thumbs up in return!
ps: Don't get me wrong - a HD rider waves friendly-like to me and he'll get the same in return!
