    Grown men turn into fashionistas,we have to have multiple riding boots, jackets, gloves, pants, and eventually motorcycles, just to be comfortable and truly enjoy the experience.

    Getting lost is the point, the most direct route is rarely taken especially after work.

    Life's essentials are reduced to locations for Starbucks, Tim Hortons and good burgers.

    The grin plastered on your face at the end of a day of riding is only truly appreciated by other riders and everyone else see's a exhausted, stinky, worn out old man.

    Lol. I like to call that Eau de motocyclette. It brings in da ladies.

    They're professionals when it comes to emptying a pocket book so if you decide to go that route remember that you are not paying them to be with you.

    You're paying them to leave.

    Agree with it, and love it.

    But I use to have a few spiders who made my gsxr home over the non-riding days even in my garage. Gear up, and proceed with the 100km/h eviction proceedings.

    2) If you do manage to see an oncoming bike with enough time to get an appropriate wave up, you better make sure it isn't a scooter. Unwritten bike rules make it a crime punishable by exile or death to wave at a scooter. And damn if it isn't hard to tell when you two are approaching each other at a combined 100 mph. If you do catch yourself mid-wave to a Vespa, however, it is acceptable to slowly turn it into an upraised middle finger. It's like the handshake-psyche of the two-wheeled world, and the look of dejection on their face will redeem any momentary awkwardness.

    Beautiful.

    Being a former scooter rider, I wave a scooter riders. I like to see them wobble when they take their hand off the grip to wave back
    I have gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, keep me here.

    Most scooter riders I see give me the impression they are totally focused on keeping it upright, sort of a tense deathgrip, a stoic game face and military precice hand signals.
    I don't want to break their concentration otherwise i'd wave.

    Those tri-color helmets from british italian motorsports complete with goggles are cute, in a bubble head bug eyed sort of way. Not my style but cute.

    Last year downtown in afternoon rush hour traffic their was a petite girl on a scooter and cars were splitting her lane to pass her so I parked myself on her left hip to make people give her room.
    Me in full gear with armor for a day on Duffey, her in short shorts and bikini and a half helmet. I was sweating my bag off but her look was priceless when she noticed people were going around her and why.

    Max you know it's hopeless when you start collecting more bikes. A selection of gear is just being prudent in regards to your safety.

    Hell, I wave at them because they have bigger balls (don't feel left out, ladies - you have metaphorical balls) than most "real" motorcyclists. Why?

    1) They're usually so gutless you lose the main "get out of trouble" feature of a bike - the ability to warp drive out of the way with a twist of the wrist.

    2) The brakes. OMFG, the brakes.

    3) The wheels are so damn small - potholes become a serious threat when they're bigger than your hoops.

    4) Scooter riding dudes have to be REAL confident about their sexuality. Anybody who can ride one deserves a wave as far as I'm concerned.

    5) They're more at risk than "we" are IMO. Just that fact alone makes them wave-worthy.

    Come on, wave to your two wheeled brethren. But not to those HD fuckers. I hate those guys.

    Sadly, I've had move waves from HD riders than sport bikes here on the mainland. Then again, I ride a V-Strom.
