    The Biker Wave

    Hubby and I rode our bike last weekend (perfect weather) and I just noticed that day the downhand wave that bikers use to greet each other. I think it's great.

    Very cool "hey brother" kinda gesture isn't it? It's a very, "if I have to explain it you wouldn't understand" sort of thing.
    I hope you cherish this sweet way of life, and I hope you know that it comes with a price.

    Yup, we have a wave. Your left hand goes down low, usually with the first two fingers up, so others behind you don't think you're signalling a lane change or something. Anytime we pass a biker coming the other way, we get or give the wave. It's pretty cool.
    I hope you cherish this sweet way of life, and I hope you know that it comes with a price.

    That and I don't like to take my eyes off the road for any amount of time!
    I have given the nod when I was still shifting and couldn't use my shifting hand, but normally, it's the wave.

    Worst of it is, the weight tends to close your eyes as you start to pull your head back - a kind of invoulenary blink.

    Skid Lid must be too loose!

    Not really...they tend to fit fairly snugly!
    The wave sounds good though. Only trouble is, if I tried to do that here, I`d get a queue of people waiting to puch me because they`d probably think I stuck my fingers up at them, lol!

    Bryn, I should say yours IS too loose!

    Oh heck yeah. A loose helmet...geeze, you might as well be wearing no helmet!! Does it pull up and kind of choke you at high speeds? If so, you're definitely going to have to tighten it up, or possibly, it's just the wrong style of helmet for you. I found that a skull cap under the helmet does wonders for keeping my brain bucket in place.
    I hope you cherish this sweet way of life, and I hope you know that it comes with a price.

    Snug when I bought it

    I really should buy new - it must be 4 years old by now and I don't like to use them much longer than that.

    We don't use the wave here too much 'cos it's our throtle hand - I've used it on the continon though.
