stop stupid nodding to other riders

Is it just me getting grumpier as i get older but i am getting more p****d off by the day by everyone from moped riders delivering pizza's to sportsbike riders nodding their stupid heads to me every time i pass one of these idiots, iv'e been on the road for 45 years now and it's getting worse, it's not a specific bike related thing either as it was years ago usually between Bmw riders and older chaps riding classic Brit bikes, i ride 4 different types of bike ranging from a yam trail bike to 2 custom Harley's and a big jap bike .Why the f*** do they do it?
i 'm not your friend ,i don't know you, pack it in !
If everyone stopped instigating it and just acknowledged the occasional one it may help stop this unnecessary nonsense.
after all no one waves or nods to you when you are driving your car or van do they. Rant over.

Grumpy old c*nt

Yes, it is you just being a grumpy old c*unt. I really enjoy the whole nod/wave/salute tradition. I feel it is an acknowledgement that says "Ah, I see you understand too, ride on, anonymous commrad!"

You also seem to be saying that it was OK when people only waved to their own kind of bike, but that seems ass backward to me. We want to encourage people to stay in biking, especially youngsters on scooters and the like, they are the future.

yep,

Yes you are a miserable old git...few enough bikers on the road as it is, we are the exceptions we are the few we are spatacus!!
We are still here, greetings fellow road alien, greetings fellow organ donors....
Yep the acknowledgement of my peers, ....or the lack of it....

nodding to other riders.. acknowledges one important fact.

@Brigadeer Trump...

In your 45 years of riding, you may have noticed that the passion riders show for their machines is more widespread than car drivers. Broadly speaking, you'll find that any one motorbike rider is likely to chat about their vehicle at depth , whereas a car driver usually treats it as a means to an end...literally.

That rider that nodded to you is acknowledging that for you to ride that bike, you are mindful of the risks to your personal safety and your trust in your vehicle is at a level where you feel comfortable risking your life for. Car drivers by contrast have a cage to protect them so they are far less vunerable in case of mechanical failure or idiocy by other road users.

That rider nodded because they recognise that you know about the best way to get around in evermore crowded cities is a motorbike. They also recognise that you are likely to have your spatial awareness turned up to full and that you are more likely to notice they are looking for hazards too. Compare this with car users who are dreamily in their own little world.. unaware of the other people sharing the road with them. Basically, they are betting on the fact that you're alert and have to be, to stay alive, so they're in the moment, they're in the zone and they want to get your attention to acknowlege that you both may die on that very trip, but they respect you for taking a chance to do what you enjoy regardless of the fact that you're more vunerable if you come off.

just sayin'

Well, courtesy cost nothing,

Well, courtesy cost nothing, and means the world. I doesn't matter what you ride, just that you ride. Whether or not you want to be part of a community... you are if you don't want courteous strangers acknowledging you, try driving a BMW. We are just being friendly, maybe you should try it once in a while.

Trump off you old goat

I for one am a new rider and I always nod to other riders as i see it as a show of respect and I like it when other riders nod back at me as it shows that they are aware of my presence which means they are watching what is going on around them instead of ignoring it like a majority of car drivers do on a day to day basis

If you don't like being nodded at try driving a car and sell your bikes to someone who will keep up the dwindling tradition of nodding to each other

You're a prick

So you'd nod if I was on the Royal Enfield or Bobbed I hope to have one day but not if I was on my CBR, SV, Dirt bike or working on the Pizza Hut moped. Do you not want more people biking? Why don't you just fuck off then you miserable old cunt.

Harley davidson rider says it all really.

I remember getting my first nod, an acceptance into the biker world, from scooters to full licence holders your on 2 wheels. It's a community like no other * o love everything about it. There was a girl recently that went into a coma after a crash. Everyone that new her spread the word & Turned out at the hospital in numbers on bikes. That's a mark of respect & so is the nod & long may it continue. Ya grumpy twat

Why so arrogant

What's wrong with it, take it as a good gesture from a fellow biker and live your miles.

Grumpy

I'm old (52), I'm grumpy, and got first bike at 9 y/o .... I have been riding on the road since 16th birthday and been through the Japs big n small, BMWs, and back on medium/large Japs.... I always give a nod or wave if I can do so safely, and like similar from others. In the same way most fellow bikers would stop and ask if you was OK when stopped in a strange place at side of road - it's just a good friendly "non-membership club" - However, you appear to be a grumpy stuck-up snob. You seem to think it's OK when "BMW riders" etc. nod at each other.... well, whatever you ride - you are a biker / motorcyclist whatever you prefer to all yourself.
And on the car thing (saying they don't do it) - Bullshit.... I also drive an M3 and other M3 drivers also do this.... it's what being an enthusiast is about....
If you don't like it - don't do it ..... we won't miss you !!!

Acknowledging other riders

Who knows what a passing riders intent is for waving. Do if you feel like it or don't if you don't. Not of consequence either way.

Go to a sparsely populated

Go to a sparsely populated place and everybody waves at each other. No matter what type of vehicle you are driving. IMO It's probably something to do with living in a friendly community with neighbors who are willing to help each other out.

Like others have said in this post before, I give a wave or nod because if you are on a bike then you are living in the same world as me. Welcome friend!

(You can always spot the learner riders because they wave back at you with their right hand!)

Miserable sod

I nod at every other bike on every journey if it is safe to do so. They almost all nod back.
On the daily commute, its the same bikes every day. They are like anonymous friends to me.
There is just one exception every morning.... a miserable twat on a KTM duke. It is either he has no spatial awareness, and doesn't spot me nodding, or it is YOU!, and you can fuck off. I would willingly stop and help any of the others if I see them broken down. But not him.

Bellend

I bet you are the type off guy who also doesnt smile back at people too!?!. Politeness and recognition to fellow person costs nothing!! Cheer up fella... Perhaps yoi need a hug

What a dick

You sir are a dick why don't you sell your bike and just spend your time in a car where you don't need to acknowledge other people's existence nodding to fellow bikers is about respect acknowledging the fact that we all share the same passion and danger on two wheels regardless of what we Ride

I bet your garden is full of

I bet your garden is full of footballs, you refuse to give back.

Your Comment

You sir, win the Internet for the best comment ever! Superb. I reckon he's bought a vicious dog too, to stop kids climbing over to get their ball!

time to give it away old boy..

Can you post a profile pic? It's just that I'd like to give you a sign when we pass on the road....it won't be a nod..

Yup, definitely getting old and grumpy

I'm not sure if this post is even authentic as I suspect Visor Down have posted to encourage conversation. I say this because my guess is it was not posted by a true biker: no true biker would compare car driving with biking. Biking is SO MUCH MORE than just transport.

If I'm wrong and you are a real person who actually does think this, then yup, you're getting old and spending far too much time alone at your allotment.

Nodding

Yes you are a moody git and from my experience its the snobby Harley riders that have an image for 4 hours on a Sunday to protect !

car drivers also nodding......in a mazda mx5 ;)

Hello....
in my car is nodding to other drivers (special mx5 drivers) normal. i think it´s ok.
on my bike i will nodding also, and i drive a hyosung gt650ir xD.

nodding me back? no? what happens?^^

You are a dickhead. we are a

You are a dickhead. we are a fellowship that face similar risks. We are a fellowship, we no matter what we ride. If you dont like it piss off and buy a CRV !!

'Kindred spirits'. Sorry Henry Cole.

Since humans first started travelling from one place to another, then later using various forms of transport, they've acknowledged other travellers. As this became more common, it became more of an Acknowledgement of those using similar transport. It's only been in the last 15 years that this has almost stopped with caravaners. On the water a lot of people still wave to each from any different type of boat.

I started my motorcycling history in 1976 and quickly learned that most other motorcyclists flashed or waved me, now it's the nod. Let's keep it going.

Get used to it or get off motorbikes.

Like it or not, riding a motorbike (or driving a VW campervan, American car, classic car, or anything not "mainstream/vanilla/normal") makes you part of a sub-culture. Bikers are not the "norm", we're a subset of the motoring population that has become a sub-culture with it's own rules, codes and behaviours.

I've driven a couple of weird cars in my life and I found that other classic / yank tank drivers flashed their lights, waved or generally acknowledged me in some way because they recognised a fellow weird-car driver. Call it tribalism if you want, there's something about feeling part of something, a movement, a sub-culture that appeals to a lot of people. If you are going to dress like a punk, expect attention from other punks! They will recognise and acknowledge a fellow punk. Rockers and metalheads sometimes throw up the horns when they see another one, VW camper/beetle drivers give each other the peace sign when they pass on the road.

If you don't want to be recognised and acknowledged as a member of the sub-culture by other members, go back to driving a car (a normal, boring, everyday car, nothing weird or different that would stand out). The nod and the camraderie of the unspoken club membership come with being on a motorbike whether you like it or not. Like the rockers, punks and metalheads I know, the bikers I've known over the years (and I mean "bikers" who identify as such, not just 2-wheeled motorists) are a supportive, self-policing sub-culture community that you are being welcomed into by everyone of them who nods or waves and most of whom would stop to check on you if you had pulled over. Complaining about it just seems arrogant and snobbish that you don't want to associate with these people who are treating you as one of them and acknowledging you as a fellow biker.

However, that arrogance and snobbishness is unfortunately predictable from the original poster as it is common among certain subsets of the sub-culture, specifically associated with certain brands of bike and one in particular...... yes, you gave that away with the subtle brag in the original post Mr " 2 custom Harley's". Most bikers don't care what you ride, just that you ride it. Harley owners unfortunately have a tendency towards only caring if you ride a Harley (ever brand has its fanatics but it's always seemed to me as the casual observer that HD attracts far more than others).

Not one

Sir, you are not a biker. You like me are just a guy that's rides a motorcycle......yet i nod all the time to other fellow riders.........and i'm 67.

Miserable fu*ker. I bet he's

Miserable fu*ker. I bet he's the sort of prick who wouldn't stop to help a biker in need. Feel free to sell your bike and fuck off.
