I've actually got a friend here that does that kind of shit all the time. He rides a Suzuki and thinks it's all that. I let him ride like a idiot to make him feel better about himself

On the day that my bike got smashed up i had seen an MV F4 on a motorway and was catching him up to give him a thumbs up for riding imo the greatest bike,but i think he saw this as hostile and took off like a rhino shot in the ass with a shotgun

Same here - the gay pirates are the worst offenders.

OTOH my wife waves like a retarded child at everyone when she's out on her Monster. I think most of them don't know quite how to react and almost always wave back.

Yeah...I usually wait for others to waive to me 1st before I wave back.....

Got tired of feeling stupid when you wave @ someone and they don't wave @ you back...

I know! Plus it would make me mad and I'd be cursing under my helmet and it would basically ruin my whole ride.

The division between bikes is weird. When I ride my vstar people on other cruisers always wave, but not sport bike riders. When I ride my brutale, sport bike riders wave, but not the peeps on cruisers.

I think motorcyclists might be the most cliquish people on the planet.

I agree Mike, but unfortunately I think we MV guys are just as guilty. I'm a motorcyclist, not a biker. I like all kinds of street bikes from Harleys to Hondas, along with everything inbetween.
