Also, during the 30 minutes at the gas station someone stopped to take pictures of my bike..
Put another 42 miles on mine today, sunny and low 50's in Denver. A single HD rider may wave back, a group just ignores a RE rider. Think I need a leather jacket and half helmet. Saw a nice Norton too.I still think I'm enjoying it more than the HD riders though!.
Harley riders can't wave, it voids their warranty.
If you ever want to get into an argument with the Harley boys just point out the fact that when two of them are stopped idling at a light that together they both sound like an old air cooled Volkswagen.
But they still wave back more than MOST Beemer riders. But the friedliest riders are Goldwingers. Heck they even wave at motor scooter/mopeders.
