So, yesterday, after the errands were done and the chores were completed, I found myself with a little "me" time. Naturally, that meant a ride.
After dropping a not-inconsequential amount on new tires/brakes/tune-up (needed and overdue in the case of the tires, but still...), I decided it was time to put some more miles on the Harley. I'm still exploring the new area, so I've been keeping somewhat close to home for the time being. As I explore more and more, and widen my circle, I venture and further...
But I digress.
I don't know if it's the longer riding season, or just that people are friendlier down here, but *everyone* waves to their fellow biker. Up in MA, maybe half would wave back on a good day. Sometimes as low as a quarter. Down here, though, it's north of 90%. Sometimes I'm not even the first to wave.
And no, I don't wave only to Harley riders. Sportbikes, Goldwings, Beamers, heck, I've been known to wave at riders on larger scooters. Even the goofy-looking Can-Ams will get a wave. "If you're behind handlebars, I'll wave" is my general belief, and since we're all in this together, quibbling over something as silly as brand is pointless.
We're all brothers - and sisters - in the saddle.
That is all.
