    high-fives?

    I was riding across town on 23rd ST yesterday afternoon and saw a lady standing in the road with her hand in the air to hail a cab. I gave her a high-five as I rode by. Probably the best decision I ever made.

    Anyone else?

    I always want to, but I know as soon as I do, the cab they are hailing will drill me from behind.

    that's pretty awesome. next time scream "HIGH FIVE!" as loud as you can as soon as you make contact. that's the only way it could get better i think

    What amazing timing for this thread. I was riding along today and high fived a dude (or possibly a dudett) in a giant M&M costume.

    That sounds like the most awesome high-five in human history.

    I also can't help but imagine how amazing that would be to witness. On acid.

    I high fived a homeless guy once who was holding a cardboard sign.
    I put a dollar in my palm as I came up to him and he slapped my hand so hard, I almost stacked into his shopping cart.

    Do it! It's hilarious. I high-five'd one guy sitting in traffic after the National Championship Game a while back. He was probably half-asleep because traffic was at such a standstill. I wish I could've seen his face. Probably the funniest thing I've ever done on a bike.

    Congrats to the OP!

    i usually wave at people hailing cabs, or ask them what they're waving at me for. im also all about high-fiving while riding with other people.
