I wave at everyone. Doing the friendly thing doesn't require a response.

I wave at everyone ON a vehicle. While I admire DarrellB's attitude, I wave with two fingers to everyone, but if they don't return the wave, they get the single finger!

Cheers,
Pete

I don't wave to Spyder Ryders.  I have ridden one and I would not want to be any part of encourageing any attempts at 1 handed operation.

Sure! Why not?
One less cager is a plus for us.
Scooters? Absolutely!

I wave to everyone.  About 10 yrs ago i bought my first bike, a beat up 86 honda 500 shadow, rode it home 40 miles in on a windy 40degree day and passed one other bike on my way home the guy waved at me ive been a waver ever since. 

The local dealership had canam out for a demo day a couple years ago so i signed up and took a demo ride fun to ride but different it took a little bit for me to get it through my head that no matter how hard i tried it will not lean into a corner. :)
