Lekker om jou sussie te soen...tot die mense daarvan uitvind  :pot:

Ek het meer ander ouens se sussies gesoen op my Vespa as op my baaik !
Want jou baaiks is mos BMW's.  :deal:

Ek dink ek het jou sussie gesoen toe ek op my Honda gery het?
Dit was l-a-n-k gelede.

Greeting other bikers is never about whether they will respond, but more about what a jorl you having because you are on a bike...

I love greeting pedestrians on backcountry dirt roads... most laaitjies go ballistic in response, often miming throttle actions, and even wheelies... Warms my heart.

If you drive a Ford Ranger, do you great every Ford Ranger you see on the road? Answer surely No.

So same for bike.

I drive a FJ and we all greet...even the lady FJ drivers greet back  :thumleft:

I greet other bikers too. I am sometimes so focused on what the traffic is doing ahead of me that I see the nod of an oncoming biker too late. Hy dink dan seker ek is 'n poephol... ;D

I greet all bikers with a nod, and when I commute on the Vespa from Simons Town to Rondebosh everyday even the GS riders pull over to let me pass  :imaposer: Friendly lot in the Southern Suburbs!!
