Isn’t the two-finger wave supposed to go along with the two-wheels, as in “Hey, we have something in common. We ride a two-wheeled vehicle instead of the 4-wheelers everyone else around us is driving”. At least that’s what I read when I was trying to figure this all out. Of course there’s “The Californian” wave, as shown in the BBM article “Motorcycle Hand Signals”. It’s pretty cool, but not for beginners.July 27, 2009 at 9:55 pm #20996zeppelinfromledParticipant
Turns out that I wave in the “harley way” according to him. I keep my hand below the grip. I find that all of the sport bikes that I wave at return and/or initiate in the same way So do the cruisers. It seems pretty universal.
Sometimes I do more of a two finger thing and sometimes just the whole hand. For me the two finger wave is based on the peace sign. It’s not that I’m saying “peace” to them, but the 2 finger wave has just become a salutation I guess.
Sometimes I also just do a bit of a wave from the grip without actually taking my hand off of it. That’s usually if I’m just feeling lazy.
I also love that he’s saying “I always keep both hands on the bars in curves like this” while at the same time he’s pointing to the curve (while in it) with a hand clearly off the handlebars.July 27, 2009 at 11:40 pm #20998yugen852Participant
Yeah. “I alwayse use both hands” and he’s pointing with one.
