USING YOUR HELMET

Just wondering what etiquette you all adhere to when passing another human being on 2 wheels. I'm still amazed at the friendliness of some bikers who would acknowledge you in the midst of a force 10 gale while others give the impression you've kicked their cat, stolen their wallet and slept with their wife!

And what about those mopeds ? Do they ignore us bikers out of fear or some odd inverted snobbery ???? :huh:

As above unless at a meet as my head would fall off. I only see around 4 other bikers a day so that is good in this respect.

Yep I'm a nodder big time. The only exception I make is to the 16 year olds on their twist and go's. A 16 year old on something thats one down and five up is different though for some reason! Go figure

I nod at bikers.

Not at scooters though. I had a scooter back in the day, so I know how they think.

I wave at harley riders though, just because it's fun because you won't get any responce back from them.

(still even now I've got a nearly cruiser!)

Nod to as many as I can, even the scoots

Scoots dont rrsond at all, apart from the finger.

Power rangers, rarely

Harleys, occaisionally.

I reckon its an age related thing, hence I link it to manners

Yeah - I agree. It really is for the most part a question of manners. Still - it's hard not to feel like a bit of a pleb when another bikers seems to totally ignore you :icon_redface:
