A couple weeks ago I was cruising down the street and saw a bike coming. I we passed and did the wave, I noticed he was on a scooter. Got me thinking whether or not I should be waving to a scooter.

I'll waive at all so I don't appear to have the stuck up Harley attitude. I don't care if it's a scooter, it's still 2 wheels :)

Where I ride here in Baltimore, most riders seem to be somewhat selective about who they share the wave with. Seems cruiser/chopper riders wave at each other and sport bike riders do the same, but rarely do either initiate waves to the other. I think all motorcycle riders (but not scooter riders) share a similar experience and should therefore share the wave. Scooter riders don't share the experience because it's ample displacement and H/P that provides it. I personally wave at all motorcycle riders but not scooter riders...at least not on purpose.

Wave at all bikes/scooters, most wave back, some do not. Figure they are too busy being whatever it is they are trying to be.

Use' to be, the Harley choppers with ape-hangers wouldn't wave; they were afraid to let go of the bar 'cause the SOB would go into a high-speed wobble!

Cheers

Thats too funny. LOL!



I seldom initiate the wave, but I usually wave if waved at no matter what they are riding. I just don't feel its necessary to wave at everyone I pass by. Unless I'm in a parade.:D

Not waving at a scooter though, is like the HD guys not waving at a Honda, IMO. They're rock'n two wheels in their own way and takin the same chances on the roads as we are (sorta;)).

That being said... I can't recall ever being waved at by a scooter.:confused: Those snobs!!!

I find myself initiating or waving at everyone. Even scooters when I’m not paying attention.

Scooter riders must think they are better than everyone, becuase I don't ever recall them initiating the wave. (except the one that caught me off guard)

I wave at everything with 2 wheels, unless someone is shifting, if I don't get a wave back, I give em another one finger wave.

I'm kinda' the same way. I'm not an initiater, but will return a wave. The sport bike riders used to not wave, I think because they were afraid I was one of the snobs, but since I wave back, they seem to appreciate it. Why be a dick? It's just people having fun and being friendly.

With bikes it seems like your yuppieish people on 2 wheels dont wave (the CEO/banker/realestate guy) on a Brand new HD, or the guy on the completely decked out bike that isnt rough enough around the edges and is completely spotless to where they obviously didnt do the bike on their own and its more than likely a trailer queen they are taking to starbucks for a coffee.

Seems like people that work their @$$es off to get their cool toys take pride and are cool about shooting the breeze, looking out for others toys like theirs or just saying hi.

There was a yuppie guy that i met thursday night that if i see his bike start to fall again i would be tempted to help push it over. He pulled in and parked front end downhill and kickstand started to cave so me and another guy turned his bike around. When he came back saw we finished moving his bike and went off on us, even after we said look at the other bikes, yours was backwards and starting to fall over.

It was certainly nice of you to help, but yeah, sounds like you should've just watched it fall over. What a douche that guy was.

If i see him again and his bike falls I will be standing front row to watch it fall, and not let anyone fix it except for him since he wants NOONE touching his bike. Gotta watch out for my fellow bikers wishes, even though that result will really piss him off compared to people just turning his bike around to prevent it from falling
