There are a few different waves that will be seen on the roads, often related to the motorcyle which someone is riding.

  • Sport bike: Two fingers of the left hand are held out like a sideways peace sign, the fingers signifying, "Yeah, man you're cool, you chose two wheels just like I did." Alternately, they may lift their front wheel off the ground and wave with it, or wave left handed while doing a wheelie.
  • Cruiser: They uh, wave. Like normal people.
  • Goldwing: As soon as they see you coming, they put down their coffee cup, set their cruise control, and give a jaunty right handed wave.
  • Harley Davidson: Both hands remain fastened to the handlebars, the gaze is directed straight ahead, and a mean/tough expression is put in place.
