There have been times that I have had to resist the urge to roll my wave over and flip them off. Two wheels is two wheels. I don't care what name is on the tank.

When I'm in a line of traffic a quarter mile long that's moving at half the speed limit because the car in front can't or won't pass the fucking moped that's leading the pack and I'm late for work, I'm sorry, two wheels isn't two wheels. If it doesn't require registration to operate, it doesn't belong on a public road. Period. It doesn't get my wave, my respect, or anything but my extreme irritation at it's very existence. I don't care if they face the same dangers as us or not. So do squirrels, and I don't respect them in the road either. They're a nuisance. Fuck 'em.

Point well taken. I should have made myself more clear. With regard to that class of vehicle that is commonly known as motorcycles, two wheels is two wheels, with the occasional trike making it three wheels.

Better?

i cant hate harleys because i was raised around them... they are good looking bikes when built properly... but im blindly quoting here "an excess of noise with no horsepower gains"

but i thought i had escaped the 3 wheeled scooters and vespa's by moving 250 miles north of san diego... nope me and a guy on a cbr600 were cruisin down this 4 lane road and one of the 3 wheeled scooters went past goin the opposite direction... the guy on the cbr was lookin to see what i did... didnt wave...

I dont hate harleys (the bikes) i hate the majority of the stuck up fuckers that ride them they make some nice bikes overly priced but hell who cares if you can afford it and like that go for it i have no problem with anyones personal opinion in expressing themselves but the majority of harley riders thinks the world owes them something

Much better. I was actually responding to several people, you just happened to be the last one up. I should have made myself more clear with a multiple quote reply, but alas, I was just too effing lazy last night.

I wave to anyone driving something other than a 4 wheel cage. Cruiser, sportbike, scooter. As long as there's an engine (so no bicycles, roller skates,etc...) I noticed the same thing about Harley riders not responding. I think it's because the Harley's are soooo loud they can't hear me wave :). Between that and figuring out how they're gonna get home when the bike breaks, they have no time for a wave! Everyone else seems to wave back.

Almost everyone on two wheels around here waves. I actually get more waves from Harley riders than scooterista and riders of metric cruisers who are either scared to take a hand of the bars or in their own little fantasy world. Illinois is right up there with California, Florida and New York in motorcycle registration numbers, so most riders have been riding for a long time and most have ridden a lot of different types and brands. Most Harley riders learned the ropes on dirtbikes or Japanese streetbikes and most are not too falsely proud to admit it.

It may be a pig, but it's a pig with a rocket in it's ass!

I have waved at scooters too, but I find it really hard to do without at least smiling, if not laughing out loud. They usually do a double take when I wave. Apparantly most of them are not used to being waved at.

Dude calm down.... chill and relax.. if you are in such a hurry "pass them" the same can be said about any car, truck rv or whatever is in the road slowing traffic. Either its the rider or the vehicle might not be working properly.. The real problem is courtesy in america!! Not everyone can afford a sportbike , cruiser or whatever, but they still love to ride... something we LOVED as kids.. Yeah so what you ride a bike that can do 200mph thats not safe either. Live and let live you sound like a harley rider in sportbike clothing.. No different "stuck up poser" To guys like you that think you are better than someone because you have an "item" a little more valuable. I say "Possesions dont make you cool"

I probably would wave at some scooters just for a chuckle but there are too many of them around here. I have been in Charlotte for a month and I still can't believe how many of them are on the roads.
I actually got passed by a Honda Rukus the other morning. I was just cruising along at the posted limit to go get a cup of coffee one morning and a Rukus zipped by me in the other lane. I just laughed to myself and maintained my speed.

Portland is always on the top ten lists for greenest cities. A lot of the reason is because of how bicycle friendly it is. Nearly all the city streets have bike lanes, the busses have bike racks on the front and there are all kinds of bike events all summer. So anyway the scooters are realtively easy to watch out for compared to all the pedal bikes on the road. I spend a fair amount of time on my pedal bike myself so I am OK with all that.
