Always wave at fellow bikers no matter the size of the bikes passing!

From the front I take my left hand off and sort of wave touch my right shoulder! Almost looks like I am signaling a high tackle in rugby!

If I over take another bike then I left the left hand off the handle bar and point upwards!

Know both if these waves are very difficult for Harley and Kom Tou My riders as the filled with fear of tankslappers!!!!!!


Bwhakakakaka! Bliksem nou amper van my stoel as soos ek lag!  :laughing4: :laughing4:

I must agree, I greet 99% of the time when possible!
peace sign when I overtake, or head check when from the front!

Don't care much what you pilot - we're all in it for the love of 2 wheels!

Keep safe!

Thanks jule begin die jaar met n smile.
Wave en knik en soentjies gooi als.
Weird is as jy dan kar ry , veral vroeg die oggend werk toe nog lekker deur die slaap. Dan waai jy vir die biker en met die inker hand nogal. Glo dit is n teken vir die biker jys ook een, want die ander hand doen die throttle  :imaposer: :imaposer: :thumleft:


Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.

En vir die eerste keer in 'n lang tyd, iemand wat sin maak ! ( As jy 'n biker OP JOU BIKE groet, dan weet hy mos jy's 'n biker ) Die linkerhand ding maak sin! Sal hom try in my kar...

Lekker vir die laaste voorstel. As jy hier iets wil sÍ, moet jy jou woorde weer mooi kies, so ek gaan dit so bewoord.

Ek groet sommer iemand op die grond as ek meerkat met 'n deeglike waai van die hand(linker net as iemand gewonder het). Of hy dink dis cool of hy dink ek is 'n twat. Sy keuse.

a while ago I saw something interesting, two bikers passing eachother and instead of waving or nodding each of them stretched out their right leg.... perhaps that was a "secret" no hands wave/greeting ?   :dontknow:

I've read The Uneasy Rider by Mike Carter, oke took a 6 month 20,000 mile trip around Europe with no real training or a plan. It's a damn good read.

Apparently the right leg thing comes from the European countries where they drive on the left side of the road, generally accepted wave there.

Sure? What bikes. I can imagine some where one's feet can vibrate off the pegs, and that could be what you saw  :peepwall:

I think probably the surest way to know someone in a cage is a biker is the way he would make way for the biker to pass, not let the biker stop dead at a stop sign, but showing the biker through, etc.
Thought so, tough behind a keyboard, but no balls.......

This "leg-out" is commonly used by Off-road/Enduro riders (in SA also), more to say thank you than hallo.     I.e.: thanks for pulling over and giving me a gap to pass... you slow poke
