Yeah I do it everytime I see a biker. If it's a harley guy that gives me a hard look and doesn't wave back. I just carry my arm up and back, and flip em off as they go by. Some might not see it, those that check their mirrors definitely will. Might not be the best/nicest/politically correct thing to do, but it irritates me when people think they're better than me.

After years of riding i don't even bother nodding or even waving to harley riders, i will wave to damn near anyone and everyone else on 2 wheels though but don't even waste my time or energy on the "hardleys" that's just me though.

i wave at all riders. but i have found quite a few harley guys are full of themselves. so they get the sign of being "number 1" from me aswell. hard to stop and lend a helping hand to the ones broke down when you come across so many jack asses.

if you were riding a harley would you be keen to take a hand off the bars, the bloody thing would vibrate you out of control

Out here most of the Harleys wave. The bikes that don't wave that I have seen are the touring (Goldwing). Hell trikes wave more then those guys. Most of the bikes I see are on the interstate so I don't know if they don't see me cause they aren't even looking at the other lanes. I have missed some waves. Noticed the bikes once they are even with me and it too late to wave. I know I don't bat a 1.000, or maybe I just look too hard for the good in people.

Here in Upstate NY, no one bothers to wave at all, I felt like a jackass when I first got here and did the biker wave. Now I don't do it at all until someone does it first.
