I've just unwittingly become part of an experiment in human nature. Gone from a naked roadie (Revere) to a black cruiser (Shadow) and I've noticed a bizzare change in the way people respond. Other riders no longer nod or wave, people on the streets avoid making eye contact, they actually look away. I still have the Revere and when I ride that I get nods, waves, people look etc. jump on the Shadow and suddenly I'm a loner. No wonder cruiser riders congegate together and form gangs... they just want to be loved!!! Next time a cruiser goes past, give us a wave!!
