Cool I made a kids day today

Today I rode thru my green light and noticed a kid on a scooter parked at a red light to my left. While going by him, I gave him the nod and the low wave.......I know I made the kid's day as he nodded back in a cool fashion but, I also noticed his body language and concluded he was very happy to be acknowledged....

Frankly, he made my day also as usually these scooter kids dis me....ROFL

I like to give the nod to kids on bikes and such. It's rewarding seeing them grin. Reminiscent of getting semi drivers to honk the airhorn! Haha

As a guy who has a female friend that rides a scooter, I can assure you they LOVE the acknowledgement of the "big bikes" LOL. I think its cool brother.

I wave to anyone on a bike that has a motor...
Sometimes even to a Dee-Wee on a bicycle...

If you don't wave to them'
They won't wave back to you....

I wave to everyone on two or three wheels , 20% or so wave back but it still doesn't deter me . If my hand is on the clutch , a nod is mandatory .

Four wheels move the body....Two wheels move the soul....

Two wheels is two wheels........I also love waving to kids riding in cars.

I eat, breathe, live, love and ride motorcycles.

4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul.

I remember as kid in the back seat doing my fist up and down like pulling a cord directed at 18 wheeled drivers so they would toot their horns. The acknowledgement was exciting when we would hear that thunderous loud horn.

I absolutely love waving a kids anywhere and always do the wave regardless.

I wave at scooters all the time. Also boys on bicycles who wave at me, kids in cars who give me the thumbs up, old guys who stand on the sidewalk and look at the bike, and at least one lady who lifted the front of her shirt as I was riding by.

Not all those who wander are lost.
