Found this on nestreetriders.com Sorry if it's a repost.

The top 10 reasons why Gold Wing riders don't wave back



10 He wasn't sure whether the other rider was waving or making an obscene
gesture.

9 Afraid he might get frostbite if he removed his hand from the heated grips


8 He has arthritis which makes it difficult for him to raise his arm

7 The reflection from his etched windscreen momentarily blinded him

6 The expresso machine just finished and he was trying to get his cup refilled

5 He was asleep when the other rider waved

4 He was in a 3 way conference call with his stockbroker and accessories dealer

3 He was distracted by an odd shaped blip on his radar screen

2 Was simultaneously adjusting the air suspension, seat height, programmable CD player, seat temperature and satellite navigation system

1 He couldn't find the 'auto wave back' button on the dashboard



The top 10 reasons that Sportsbike riders don't wave back



10 He hasn't been riding long enough to know that he's supposed to

9 He's going too fast to have time to register the movement and respond

8 You weren't wearing bright enough gear

7 If he sticks his arm out going that fast, he'll rip it out of its socket

6 He looks way too cool with his right hand on the handlebars and his left hand on his hip

5 He'll unbalance himself while standing on the tank

4 His skin-tight-kevlar-ballistic-nylon-kangaroo-leather suit prevents any position other than foetal

3 Raising his arm allows bugs into the armhole of his tank top

2 Its too hard to do one handed stoppies

1 He was too busy slipping his flip-flops back on



The top 10 reasons that BMW riders don't wave back



10 The new aerostitch suit is too stiff to raise his arm

9 Removing a hand from the 'bars is considered bad form

8 Your bike doesn't look weird enough to justify a response

7 Too sore from an 800 mile day on a stock comfort seat

6 Too busy programming the GPS, monitoring radar, listening to ipod or talking on the mobile phone

5 He's an iron arsed rider and you're not

4 The wires from the Gerbing heated clothing are too short

3 You're not riding the right kind of BMW

2 You haven't been properly introduced

1 He's afraid it will be misinterpreted as a friendly gesture



The top 10 reasons that Harley riders don't wave back



10 He's afraid it will invalidate his warranty

9 The leather and studs make it too difficult to raise his arm

8 He refuses to wave to anyone who's bike is already paid for

7 Afraid to let go of the handlebars because he might vibrate off

6 The rushing wind would blow the scabs of his new tattoos

5 He's just discovered the fine print in his owners manual & realised that H-D is partially owned by Honda

3 He can't tell if the other rider is waving, or covering his ears like everyone else

2 He remembers the last time a Harley rider waved back; he impaled his hand onto his spiked helmet

1 He's too tired from polishing the chromework to lift his arm
