5. Angry because just took out second mortgage to pay luxury tax on new Harley.
4. Just discovered the fine print in owner's manual and realized H-D is partially owned by Honda.
3. Can't tell if other riders are waving or just reaching to cover their ears like everyone else.
2. Remembers the last time a Harley rider waved back, he impaled his hand on spiked helmet.
1. They're too tired from spending hours polishing all that chrome to lift their arms.

LOL!

Would love to hear some for Kawi riders!

Maybe something like:

1. We are too cheap.
2. We are too avaricious.
3. We use the wrong kind of oil...

I was in Australia last year, and had the pleasure of riding on the back of a GoldWing.
One of the many things I observed was that NO ONE waves...I thought "Rude Buggers"..
Oh wait, they drive on the other side of the road...they might try to wave with throttle hand...Hmmm

4. We were busy adding SeaFoam
5. We were preoccupied worrying if the Fram filter was working.
6. We went dark side, and are afraid to release death grip from bars.
7. We were trying to hit the rev limiter since we installed overdrive pulleys to lower our RPMs.

In Australia we do 'the bikers nod' none of this waving business. The above Harley/sports bike rules still apply.

Too funny!!

8. Didn't see the wave cause we had our head tilted trying to figure out where the new noise was coming from.

These are great! Just need two more. Actually though, it's very seldom a Harley rider doesn't wave- at least around here.
