dual sport riding

i wish they would have a forum as good as this one for dual sport riders.
i have a 08 XR650L and love to ride in the summer most of the Harley riders give you the stink eye when you wave at them or when they pass you

Seriously, they do? What, are they pissed at you because your bike doesn't leak oil or rely on nostalgia from the 40s to sell the bikes?

Oh this is my favorite subject. Waving! I do not wave at anyone. I think that is stupid. Just my opionion. I go out to ride, not to wave at people. Who started that?
My buddy waves at everyone he see's. If they own the same thing as him, he is waving. I like to focus on my ride. Trying to wave at people distracts me. I guess I am old fashion. Us riders never waved at anyone in the old days. Plus I don't ride Harley's.

Heck I wave at everyone. I ride a sport bike and it doesn't matter to me if you are on a Harley, dirt bike, moped or trike. You are out on another open motorized vehicle enjoying life.

But then again, I wave at people that look at me as they drive by the house, I wave at people around my community when I pass them on the road etc...

We are just friendly people around here.

I wave at people in my neighorhood. In the Metro area too many bikers out to wave at. I consentrate on riding while others consentrate on waving. LOL Sometimes they wave back. I prefer to be the one that does not wave back or even look at the other bikers going by. Never recked on the street and not about to because I waved at some GUY ON A BIKE. If it was a chick riding then I might go out of my way to wave at her. LMAO

I always get annoyed when people don't wave back and I can clearly tell they saw me wave. Might as well flip me off as you ride by.

Well you don't ride a Harley so there would be no need to. I ride with dark tinted sheild. Are you sure I saw you. My head did not even turn in your direction. I try not to wave and pick up guys. My wife does not like it. LOL I sort of think its a little gay waving at guys and I am not calling you gay to don't go there. Its just the way I see it. If I knew you and you are my friend then I would wave. Strange men....NO!

lol It's just being friendly.

But I can see your point with the way the world is going. Everyone wants to make themselves strangers from everyone else. Do you ever give a head nod or some other form of recognition to other ATV riders on the trails? It's just being friendly to others enjoying the same activity as you.

And BTW I'm only 20 years old, so that may be why. I grew up in an old fashioned home and I still think like it is the 50's where you can leave your doors unlocked and nobody will touch your stuff and everybody knows everybody.

LOL If I am out in the woods I will wave at someone if they wave first. This does not happen too much. Most if the time when someone waves in the woods its to ask for directions. Most of the time I am driving to fast to wave in the trails. I am 50+ and I ride sport touring. Alot of harleys around here. Alot of dorks with money buying the harleys. If I wave at one, they might follow me home and try and be my friend. I just don't relate with harley riders too well. IF you know what I mean. LOL
