Ok, so you think you're better than me, better than me huh? Are you paralyzed or so frightened you'll lose control of your motorcycle if you return the arm down greeting I just gave you. Beautiful day for a ride and I took an extended one, feeling full of the goodness that is Mother Nature, letting the wind blow through where my hair used to be. It has long been a custom to lower your left arm down in greeting to a fellow biker going the opposite direction and they would return it. I am sad to say only about 20% of the riders I ran across today returned the traditional greeting. I must admit I may be mistaking their ignorance for arrogance, I also know this shouldn't be expected from the weekend biker who sheds his work a day polo shirt for his leathers and a ragged bandanna to take on the characteristics of a life he wished were everyday. My last word of the day (maybe) is Can-Am riders those are not motorcycles, they are motortricycles. Oh for the days when we were a rarer, more daring breed.
