Its funny to read this post and think back to when I had a motorcycle. I rode a Honda NiteHawk which was a sorta sporty cruiser.

It put me squarely between two camps. It wasn't a crotch rocket with fairings out the whazoo, and it wasn't an annoyingly loud Harley.

It is a big tradition to wave to other motorcyclists, yet I got snubbed regularly by oh-so-cool rocket riders (roadies) and by the rought tough, Made in America 'damnit Harlet riders (MTB'ers).

OK - so it isnt an exact parallel, but I treat cyclcists the same way I did other motorcyclists, be the first to wave and say hi, and have a thick skin for those staying in their own tribe.

See ya out there !
