Bike names and unwritten motorcycle laws

Im new to the bike seen and I've heard things like you dont give your bike a female name...dont set your helmet on the ground unless your signaling that you need help...ect.
I'd like opinions on this and if there are other things(unwritten laws) new guys should know.
Also..post your bikes names!

And here is a pic of my bike and myself since I didnt post any before

the wave is mandatory for any rider on anything larger than 250CC's

All I know is that it's bad luck to be superstitious...


Ive got three bikes; named:

1990 ZX-6D : "Eagle 1"

In my area, a motorcyclist patting their helmet as they go past on the opposite ride of the roadway means POLICE AHEAD

i think mine is "awwcomeonyoufuckingcunt"
it has a meaning in english language.

-i do not wave to scooters. if anything, i aim to kick them over.
-i do not wave to the cruiser guys unless they wave first. i have been wasting arm energy for 10 years to no avail. especially those fucking goldwing guys.
-if i see a bike on the side of the road, i pull over, no matter what it is. see if they need help
-i can't think of anything else.
theres probably more i do automatically being on dos wheels for 10 years. shit just gets instilled.

In my area its more of knocking on their helmet, as if knocking on a door.

Wow I never really thought of giving my bike a name hahaha I guess.....

"GetUpAndGoMoFo"

That'll work for now.

As for other unwritten laws....

1) Don't fart at a light when on a group ride
2) Don't put your $500 lid on a cold/frosted over seat (it will fall and more than likely you will break something )
3) Don't give your huge ass date wearing a thong riding up to her middle of her back a ride on your bike.... no one wants to see that
4) Have a ton of fun and keep the rubber side down and the plastics off the asphalt

I guess my bikes maiden name was "Turn, turn, Turn, shwew!!!" Now it is dragon slayer...

(I know it is lame but...)

I guess the only unwritten laws I like to see abide by is: when a group is coming to or leaving from a stop don't swerve around in the lane, hold your line.

Speak for yoself, i wanna see wat she working wit. you cant ride unless u have a thong and i need to see sum proof.

Tap on the helmet or head means cops whether the person tapping is going in the opposite direction or going with you. be on the look out!

never be last in a pack of riders. they are always the ones who take the ticket.

watch out for the dumbass in cars that wanna race you. jus let them go!

Treat your bike like its your woman!

only ride in btwn cars when traffic is at a stand still and rev your engine while going thru! (may not be for everyone)

burnouts+holding the clutch= new clutches and tires.

ride within your limits!!! dont try nething jus cuz sum1 else tried! the end results could be fatal!!

dont know if u have helmet law in your state but if u are planning on speeding wear a helmet even if you have to pull over and get left for a sec.

There are those who have fallen and who will fall. its unfortunate but it happens to the best of us!

dont put kickstand down in grass or gravel or mud if u do put sumthing solid underneath the kickstand.

no armor all on tires.

eat the 1000s and bigger bikes up n the curves if u know how!

dont say u wont go over 80 cuz its not true once u get the hang of it

Keep it safe at all times!!!

no drinking and then riding!!! can be done but dont suggest it!

Hmm, I thought it was just the opposite.
Doesn't sound right if you say you're going to go ride Fred.

Well good subject, My bikes name is "the other Girl Friend"

Unwritten laws, don't try and break up a pack of riders, wait and they will let ya bye.
If the guy behind you is faster, let him/ her go around with a friendly wave around.
NEVER, NEVER touch another bike with out asking first.
NEVER offer to give a another rider women a ride unless he asks you to.

And the number one rule for the general public: Never, ever, sit on someone else's motorcycle without being specifically invited to do so. The resultant beating you get will be well deserved!
