Question. Who do you give the biker peace sign / head nod to?
Took the bike out today and needed to stop for gas. Now, I give the downward peace sign or head nod to anyone on a bike regardless of brand or style of bike. I don't really care when it's not returned for whatever reason. I pull in to the gas station and there is about 15-20 HD riders. Mostly baggers with those giant front fairings. As I pull in, they all turn to look. I get my gas, kick start it and start to pull out. I throw up the peace sign and get nothing but a stare from all of them.
This isn't a rant because that's exactly what i expected. These guys were all black vest, hoodies, and they all wear sneakers for some reason. Like they watch too much Sons of Anarchy. Anyway, that doesn't intimidate me so I always throw a peace sign up. I think not looking at them is weaker than acknowledging them.
Today I chose to ride the 1975 Honda CB400 Four but I bet I'd get the same stare if I was on the '78 Yamaha RD400.
Anyway, I took these pics when I got back home. IMO, it's pretty clean. Maybe they couldn't figure out what it was?
