    Do you wave to squidly riders?

    Don't know if this has been polled before, just wanna know who does and who doesn't. I'm tryin to break the no gear habit, but I'd still wave to someone who wasn't geared up. Opinions please
    Suck it Trebek!!!

    Absolutely! I wave with both hands and jump up and down, especially in traffic on bridges.. anything to help them loose control.

    No, I laugh at them.
    But whatever, if they want the people in emergeny taking a fucking nylon brush to their freshly torn skin, with no anesthetic, then that's their choice.

    I wave to everyone, except those riding scooters.
    Then I'm laughing too hard to break contact with the handlebars.

    how the fuck do you ride when you're so busy passing judgements on things that DO NOT MATTER?!

    police uniform concern : me getting busted. why? getting busted sucks, another ticket to fight.

    some dude in shorts+t: concern: none. who gives a fuck if they crash and die, or what amount of pain they deal with if they live. NOT MY PAIN, NOT MY CONCERN. and it shouldn't be yours either, atleast not to the point of "ho hum dee dum, hey that guys not wearing GEAR! no wave for him!" - as if not waving is going to enlighten anyone!

    I wave, but i do it half-assed and i won't nod.....or else they won't LEARN NUTHIN'.

    The worst though is the guys who wear gear but have a passenger without gear. That is when i don't wave. I can tell my lack of physical acknowledgement totally takes the wind outta their sails. I can almost see the rider question his decision to get a bike in the first place. When faced with rejection like that, most "squidly riders" are subjected to the most unpleasant dry-heaving and cold sweats, due to feelings of rejection and detachment.

    I don't give a shit if the guy wears gear or not, but why should my taxes go to pay for his stupidity.

    i'd like to take this opportunity to point out that MUCH more of your money is probably being dished out to scammers who want a new bike cuz their old one is 'scratched' or whathaveyou, than is dished out to pay for wire-scrub-brushes, iodine bottles, and such.

    I wave to a fellow rider, out of respect. As for no gear, it's a chance and choice they make.
