    5- They refuse to wave to anyone whose bike is already paid for.
    4- They are afraid to let go of handlebars because they might vibrate off.
    3- Rushing wind might blow the scabs off their new tattoos.

    1- They're too tired from the hours spent polishing all that chrome.

    3- Their skin tight-kevlar-ballistic-nylon-kangaroo-leather suits prevent any other position than fetal.
    2- Raising an arm allows bugs into the armholes of their tank tops.

    You are clear, bloody funny matey, bling awarded
    To every man upon this earth
    Death cometh sooner or late
    And how can a man die better
    Than facing fearful odds
    For the ashes of his fathers
    And the temples of his Gods

    Wow, I remember that thread too. Cutting myself fine here, but for your valient effort, you may also have my squad of apostrophe weilding hippies complete with dictionaries to continue in your valient effort to tame those in the other thread.

    Cheers, but I'll happily settle for those humourless midgets with sticks. Their resolve is frightening.

    That's not a problem. The hippies haven't been performing on all cylinders as of recently anyway. I think they have found their "stash" that I hid from them.

    reasons gn250 riders don't wave back:

    5.they are too petrified to let go of the bars
    4.the bars will fall off the bike if they let go
    3.the bike will lurch to a hault the moment the throttle is let off redline
    2.they fear letting go will change the aerodynimcs of the bike
    1.they don't want to accidently catch a piece of sharp rusty mudguard as it flies off.
