    I’m conflicted about ‘Waving and Nodding’ at other motorcyclists.
    Perhaps I haven’t found my style. On one hand it’s quite a nice thing; To wave and or nod.
    Except when you extend an outstretched glove to an apanger-grasping skull-face
    on a tight corner. Mind you the most unlikely looking people/bikes, do or don’t, wave or nod.
    So who ever knows? Sometimes I feel like a idiot just about to crash his bike.
    Sometimes I can’t wave or nod and then I feel like I’m being an asshole.

    Overall I find it a distraction, though a, ‘nice to do’.

    Any insights? Experiences?

    With your hand by your thigh sweep your arm from the front to the back, recognised as smooth sailing brother, if someone ignores you, probably riding a Harley, smile and pass on by

    Yeah good advice. Sports bike riders might have a problem with waving too.
    The riding position isn’t easy.

    I generally wave and probably 70-80% wave or make some other form of acknowledgement back.
