The Taco Salute!

So I've been kinda disappointed at the lack of camaraderie on the road amongst the Tacoma drivers. I've been driving a motorcycle in Arizona the past 2 years and salute everyone on a bike as I pass AND GUESS WHAT? They all salute back! Granted there's varying degrees of salutes amongst different riders, my favorite is the two finger road point.

Whenever I pass a fellow Taco rider, I wave and I'll I get is a dumbfounded look like "why the frack is this dude waving at me?" So I propose a salute, what say you?

I try to hit up modded tacos... there's too many stock looking ones and they tend to ignore anyway. For that matter, any legit looking modified off-road vehicle I'll give a nod, rock sign, or something too and usually returned. Sometimes I'm flat out not looking at the oncoming cars that closely other than "object there" type of mode...

i call them taco dueces. two fingers casually swung out to greet an oncoming tacoma owner. 10% wave back, 15% flash their high beams, and 85% look confused and drive on. but those 15% are the ones that keep me going. Theyre the ones that understand.

I used to waive at dudes with nice cars, modded Tacos, sweet looking Jeeps and shit all the time. 95% of the time they either totally ignored me or looked at me like, "what the fuck is your deal?" I'm not talking a gay waive either like "HEYY HELLO I SHOULD KNOW YOU!!", I'm talking the two-finger salute, a nod, a thumbs up, whatever. I've even leaned out my window at red lights to say "nice car!" to old farts with classics or whatever and half the time they don't even make eye contact even though you know damn well they heard you. So, I've given up. Unless they make eye contact first or do some kind of waive on their own I don't even bother.

Ok, I like where we are going with this. "Taco Deuces", "Deuce Tacos"... Maybe it should be a double flash of the high beams?

I've tried coming up with something since I too ride a bike in Az and love the finger point when passing other bikes.

I typically wave frantically like an insane person at any Tacoma I see with a mod done to it.

Give them the one finger salute and I promise, you'll have much better odds with them returning the gesture in kind. I would expect at least a 90% success rate with my method.

I agree on the taco camaraderie! I always give a thumbsup or hangten when I see a modded taco and usually half the time I get some kind of response back (nod, wave, thumbsup, finger). The other half I just get weird looks or they speed up to get away from me..

I think the main reason is because of the production numbers of these vehicles, it is not like they are small run limited production trucks. When I had my STI there was always the camaraderie because there just aren't a ton of them around...yeah I know they are not "rare" or anything. I am just saying that modded Tacos are probably easier to get a wave from rather than your everyday driver...

Just my .02
