The Wave: 10 reasons why ...

    Hi: I snitched this from some other motorcycling site: I hope you enjoy them. :D

    TOP 10 REASONS WHY HARLEY RIDERS DON’T WAVE BACK:
    • Afraid it will invalidate warranty.
    • Leather and studs make it too heavy to raise arm.
    • Refuse to wave to anyone whose bike is already paid for.
    • Afraid to let go of handlebars because they might vibrate off.
    • Rushing wind would blow scabs off the new tattoos.
    • Angry because just took out second mortgage to pay luxury tax on new Harley.
    • Just discovered that fine print in owner’s manual and realized that H-D is partially owned by Honda.
    • Can’t tell if other riders are waving or just reaching to cover their ears like everyone else.
    • Remembers the last time a Harley rider waved back, he impaled his hand on spike helmet.
    • They’re too tired from spending hours polishing all that chrome to lift their arms.

    TOP TEN REASONS WHY GOLDWING RIDERS DON’T WAVE BACK:
    • Wasn’t sure whether other riders was waving or making an obscene gesture.
    • Afraid might get frostbite if hand is removed from heated grip.
    • Has arthritis and the past 400 miles have made it difficult to raise arm.
    • Reflection from etched windshield momentarily blinded him.
    • The espresso machine just finished.
    • Was actually asleep when other rider waved.
    • Was in a three-way conference call with stockbroker and accessories dealer.
    • Was distracted by odd shaped blip on radar screen.
    • Was simultaneously adjusting the air suspension, seat height, programmable CD player, seat temperature, and satellite navigation system.
    • Couldn’t find the “auto wave back” button on dashboard.

    TOP 10 REASONS SPORTBIKES DON’T WAVE BACK:
    • They have not been riding long enough to know they’re supposed to.
    • They’re going too fast to have enough time to register the movement and respond.
    • You weren’t wearing bright enough gear.
    • If they stick their arm out going that fast, they’ll rip it out of the socket.
    • They’re too occupied with trying to get rid of chicken strips.
    • They look way too cool with both hands on the bars or they don’t want to unbalance themselves while standing on the tank.
    • Their skin tight-kevlar-ballistic-nylon-kangaroo-leather suits prevent any position other than fetal.
    • Raising an arm allows bugs into the armholes of their tank tops.
    • It’s too hard to do one-handed stoppies.
    • They were too busy slipping their flip-flops back on.

    TOP 10 REASONS WHY BMW RIDERS DON’T WAVE BACK:
    • New Aerostitch suit too stiff to raise arm.
    • Removing a hand from the bars is considered “bad form”.
    • Your bike isn’t weird enough looking to justify acknowledgement.
    • Too sore from an 800-mile day ride on a stock “comfort” seat.
    • Too busy programming the GPS, monitoring radar, listening to Ipod, XM, or talking on the cell phone.
    • He’s an Iron Butt rider and you’re not!
    • Wires from Gerbings are too short.
    • You’re not riding the “right kind” of BMW.
    • You haven’t been properly introduced.
    • Afraid it will be misinterpreted as a friendly gesture.

  2. Thank you, Bedrock.

    I recently saw my first Honda GoldWing up close.
    :khee It isn't until I saw it that I understood most of the "Goldwing reasons".

    Yesterday I had to adjust my normal wave to a high and tight open handed one. Was passing a rather large and cheering prison work detail. Just seemed like the thing to do at the moment.

    Secondly, not saying I did this of course, but what is the current penality for waving at a winger?

    I waved at an unsuspecting Moped rider. The rider appeared to be very surprised.

    Cheers!
