As an avid motorcyclist, I will tell you that the motorcycle wave is officially dead. There are just so many bikes on the road these days it gets annoying very quickly. I do not want to come off as aloof or rude, but it has just become a huge PITA, nevermind the "feelings" behind HD guys not waving to the Sport bike guys, and nobody waving to the Dual Sport guys, etc..
I guess that I kind of feel the same way about the Taco wave - there just seems to be far too many out there to even bother, and if they are not on this Forum (who wouldn't be??) they most assuredly will not know what you are waving at.
Around here, the hard core Off Road guys all seem to know each other anyway - I am not one of those guys...

do jeeps wave at jeeps anymore? I think maybe the high rental rate out here killed that a few years ago.

I'm not waving at any tacomas out here. There's something like 4.5 million of them and the population is only cresting 1 million. Be like waving at f150s in texas.

It doesn't have to be a full on , I just do a two finger raise peace sign kind of thing from the hand that is holding the wheel.

Maybe we should come up with a gang sign that we can flash at each other?

I just gave a wave at the grocery store. It was a red access that was modded out. Around here that is rare most are stock. The guy waved back, might of thought I was a goof but who gives a shit. I liked his truck. Gave me some good ideas and got me excited about spending some cash.

That's it! After 108 posts of thoughts, suggestions, and comments I for one am going to begin to do a right hand wave off the steering wheel. Soooo .... if you'll in the Va Beach area watch out.
