    Re: I've yet to receive a nod!! :(

     Got a real fonzy nod yesterday coming home in another bloody storm.

    A grizzly old harley biker coming the other way , traffic stopped and we were across from each other, I looked over at him with a grin in the poring rain and lighting gave the nod and got a grin, nod and a thum up ! ended up yelling comments about the cagers back and forth across the traffic untill it started to move again .

    Now must say it turned a bad day good Wink

    I was totally impressed this morning when a cager at a dubious intersection did the following - saw me coming, stopped as he was supposed to & waited til I drove past! In appreciation I nodded to him and well, what do you know, he nodded in return. Glad to see we can play nicely with each other every once in a while! Happy nodding chaps, PP.

     LOL yes it's nice when they do that. He is probably a motorbike or scooter rider in his other life. Big Smile

    Try returning the kindness to a cager who doesn't expect it, their reaction is usually enough to brighten your whole day Wink

     Got a military salute from a PX 200 rider today. Totally took me by surprise, I just squeezed a nod in in return :)

     I'm receiving nods galore riding the MP3 around. Even a pedestrian! Unfortunately by the time he nodded, after almost tripping over himself looking around at the MP3, I didn't have time to nod back so gave him a cheery wave instead. Yes

    I'm not even initiating the nods! I'm having far too much fun, finding all the gravel & sand I can & giggling like a nutter, to bother with nodding at others & watching to see how they react!  Big Smile

    Heading out a couple of hours ago I noticed a distinct difference in the way cagers treated me also. One, who had pulled half a car distance into my path before I even came around the bend, reversed back behind the stop sign although I could very easily have ridden around him. I do think however that people need to be re-taught that it's rude to point! I could have filled the fuel tank a couple of times over if I had a dollar for every time someone pointed at the scooter!
