I'm with simpleman, I wave to everyone willing to face the dangers of 2 or 3 wheeled travel.

I wave to everyone. Here in Columbus, GA a lot of crotch rockets wave back at me. Honestly, the only ones that don't wave at me are the "Uppety" Harley riders here. We're a Harley town, so we have our bad half of the 1%'s riding around.

Around here, in super friendly Canada:

Sportbikes: 50% wave first, 30% will return my wave
Metrics: 90% wave rate
Harleys: 30% wave first, 40% will return my wave

I wave to all of em. Only time I don't do a full arm dropped down is when I'm just taking off from a light and I gotta keep on the clutch, or when slowing down to a stop. Those people just get the point from the handlebars.
Around here I find that I pretty much get it 99% back, no matter if it's a sportbike or a Harley.

My 14 year old son rides with me alot on the the bike, and he always jokes about waving to other riders.

He told me the other day, while out riding his bicycle, he rode by a motorcycle cop and just out of habit waved. The copy smiled and waved back. I guess he was waving all the time I was as well.

I live about two miles out of the Roswell city limits in farm and ranch country. When I ride into town or stop at the plesant little little park on the way, just about everyone waves at me. Doesn't matter if I'm on my 125 motor scooter or my Shadow 750 I almost always get the wave. I sure wish the general public knew what fine people bikers can be.

I also have always waved, other than in tight corners. Most rider wave back. A few Harley riders don't, most sporty's do. However the biggest % of non wavers I see are BMW riders. I often ride with a buddy who is ow on a Harley, but before that road a BMW K bike. He told me it really pissed him off that the majority of BMW riders wouldn't wave back, because the K bikes do not have the cylinders sticking out like the R bikes & they didn't recognize his bike as part of the clan.

In BC Canada only some HD riders don't wave. Deep respect to all who ride!
