    Wow, I don't wave because that would mean I need to put down my pipe/cigar or my coffee cup to do it....

    THERE WE GO!!! THANK YOUR!!! Someone finally made a joke in the spirit of my original post. See, on Goldwing, we are enjoying the comfort and luxury of sitting in our Lazy-Boys we could be smoking a pipe/cigar or drinking a cup of coffee...Get it?...A joke!

    THANK GOD I didn't post a joke about oil or tires!

    I'd like to know what you all think as to why it started in the first place.
    I started riding in the late 60's. I don't remember it being a thing then.
    ITS ALL GOOD

    I think the wave thing started with the HD riders. To show brotherhood and a kindred spirit. That's why "other" riders aren't really included. Don't matter to me. I don't wave. Like was said above , do you wave in your car? Of course not. I'm not unfriendly. Just prefer to keep both hands on the bars. If I'm riding local and see a rider I know then I most certainly wave. Maybe even blow the horn.

    In Texas we wave! Our state moto is "Friendship," and Texas highways cover more miles than any other state. What else you got to do than wave on long flat Texas roads. Hell, sometimes I wave at cars when I'm on my bike.

    I've always believed the "motorcycle wave" is two fingers pointing down for "keep it on TWO wheels" and as a show of solidarity in the motorcycle community. May have started during the surge of WWII soldiers returning with motorcycles after the war, which was a tight group already.
