Today I was sitting in my car at an intersection and I noticed a bike position himself out wide so I can see him (good rider clearly even if he was on a 125). He looked at me I looked at him and by habit, I nodded. Surprisingly, he nodded back probably thinking "thanks mate you saw me". This got me thinking (actually seething) about the disgusting piece of advertising my poor Mexican brethren are being subjected to, and also thinking about a recent idea by smileedude on training our kids to spot motorcycles on educating our young as a positive step to getting drivers to look for us. How about extending nodding to the cars. Make the drivers feel part of the club. "Nod a Rider" let them know you've seen them. Or "Give'em a Nod not a Nudge" I think rather than adopt an us and them mentality when it comes to road safety let's do a positive initiative and push unlike those f'kers at TAC. I am going to nod a rider when in the cage from now on just to let them know I've seen them. And low and behold it just might make me look that little bit more.
