NODDING AT EACH OTHER

We all nod at each other on the road because we're the minority (especially those of us who aren't fair weather riders during crap weather) and we feel we're part of a club. We give an extra big nod and maybe back it up with a beep and flashing headlights if the other rider's got the same bike! (I ride a BMW R1200RT SE.) But the other day a scooter rider nodded at me and I instinctively nodded back. I genuinely couldn't believe I had nodded at someone on a scooter! Does that make me a bad person? Am I alone? :huh:

it's been posted before, but.....

...just changed my bike recently,..from an old zxr to an old bandit, AND I couldn't beleave the difference. 

Maybe cos i ride older bikes, and the newer bikes don't nod?..Nah!...I get more nods when riding my old vfr and the wife's baby ninja than I do on my bandit.

Me?..i don't give a shit..but on MY planet, if it's 2wheels..scooters and harley's inc..ya get a nod..

NO BIG DEAL.

(however, I have noticed EVERY FUCKER NODS AT THE MRS....so it's not the bike ya ride,.. it's how big or small your arse is in them leathers  SIMPLES)

I nod at anyone me.. (except squids)

I nod at anyone thats wearing appropriate clothing, ie, not a squid, can't be doing with that, even if they nod at me I will blank them because I disapprove.. Providing they are dressed appropriately then I will nod at anyone, regardless of the bike they ride, it's a mutual respect for the danger we both know we face, T-shirt and shorts riders just don't get that, which is why they don't get a nod from me.

I understand where you are comming from, but what do you wear in 37 degree temperatures?
I'm melting in bikini bottoms and a cotton top!  (But I never wear flipflops on the bike) :sunglasses:

I nod at coppers on bikes. (Is that really bad?) :ph43r:

What I wear is made by Shoei, Dianese, Sidi and Knox, I don't ride without them, ever, regardless how hot it gets... If it's too hot to wear the gear, then I don't ride, anyways, it's only hot when you stop..
