Giving other MC riders "the nod" Hello!

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Lectre, Sep 19, 2006.

  1. Hey all.
    I don't know if this is a perculiarity of Brisbane alone, but I find it interesting that people only seem to give the "hello nod" to other riders on the same sort of bike...? For example, I ride a sports bike, and I have other sports bike riders nod to me, and when I nod to them they nod back (yes a whole lot of nodding going down :LOL: )... However when I nod at guys'n'gals on cruisers, there is no reciprocation? My mother (who rides a cruiser) mentioned to me that the same thing applies to her; sport's bike riders don't give her the nod...
    Is this just a brisbane thing, or is it Australia wide?

    <appologies to scooter riders for next comment>
    I personally don't nod to scooter riders, as the ones in my area (CBD/Red Hill/Paddington) are crazier than bat sh!t and twice as dangerous; but if I get a nod from a scooter rider I will always be polite and send one back...

    I hope it's just an isolated Brisbane phenomanon :p
