I typically give the old low hand 2/5 when I see another rider. By rider I mean anyone wearing a helmet on 2 wheels. Those 3 wheel kid things I will wave if they wave first. As for cops, its normally a nod for me on those guys.

2 finger left have wave below the bar if I acknowledge first, otherwise I nod back.

At a can-am sure. Not at a polaris slingshot, that's a car in my area, no helmet required.

Harley riders and 3 wheelers almost never greet back locally. But are always super friendly off their motorcycles.

When we ride in the California, we just point two fingers down for acknowledgement. The best is when you're at a red light and across the intersection is another biker stopped at a red light. Anything goes from there, and can get awkward real quick if you wave and they don't wave back. You'll feel like an idiot around the other cars around you lol

As someone who rides a three wheeled scooter I don't get many nods/waves so tend to not nod first.

I tend to find vintage scooter owners will flat out refuse to acknowledge my "abomination"
Brother I would probably crash trying to greet you! I followed a 3 wheeled scooter a few years back, it was new so Im sure the guy was chuffed, or about to call the cops :oops:

The ones that get me are the Harley riders with the boulevard lean and can't move their free hand to wave.

I guess they are too busy concentrating on how breathe :p ?

The best wave was a group of Sportsters and the last guy was doing the queen wave back to other riders:D

Breathing is a must when riding. Maybe you should teach a breathing class when riding bikes. Helps a lot :p

I love it, the Queen wave. I'm going to start doing that now in group rides.

I thought us bikers were blowing kisses at each other when we say bye?
