Sorry for this guys and gals, but its pretty funny. Just to be clear, I am not biased but I can laugh a bit. - Taken from and article on cycle fish :)
Every once in a while, somebody starts whining about Harley riders not waving back. Before those whiners dismiss all Harley riders as mean-spirited, they should consider that there are probably very good reasons why their waves are not being returned….
Top Ten Reasons Why Harley Riders Don’t Wave Back
1 – They’re afraid it will invalidate their factory warranty.
2 – Leather and studs make it too hard to raise their arm.
3 – They refuse to wave to anyone whose bike is already paid for.
4 – They won’t let go of handlebars because they might vibrate off.
5 – The rushing wind could blow the scabs off their new tattoos.
6 – They’re angry over the second mortgage needed to pay for the new Harley.
7 – They just discovered the fine print in their owner’s manual revealing that The Motor Company is partially owned by rice-burner manufacturers.
8 – They can’t tell if other riders are actually waving or just reaching up to cover their ears, like everyone else.
9 – If they wave back, they risk being impaled on their spiked helmet.
10 – They’re upset that after spending $30,000, they still don’t own a bike that’s as comfortable as a Goldwing.
To be totally fair, let it be noted that sometimes Goldwing riders don’t wave back, either. Again, to facilitate a better understanding….
Top Ten Reasons Why Goldwing Riders Don’t Wave Back
1 – They aren’t sure whether the other rider is waving or making an obscene gesture.
2 – They risk getting frostbite if they take their hand off the heated grip.
3 – They have arthritis and it is difficult to raise their arm.
4 – The reflection from the etched windshield was momentarily blinding.
5 – The on-board espresso machine had just finished.
6 – They were asleep when other rider waved.
7 – They were involved in a three-way conference call with their stock broker and accessories dealer.
8 – They were distracted by an oddly shaped blip on their radar screen.
9 – They were simultaneously adjusting the air suspension, seat height, programmable CD player, seat temperature and satellite navigation system.
10 – They couldn’t find the “auto wave-back” button on their dashboard.
