Odd salute?

Today I was in fuel save mode:- slightly aero tuck and backed off to 60 - 65 (because .... I dunno). However you see more bikes that way. A couple went past and waved their hand and then this one guy goes past and dangles his leg about 30mm off the ground.

What? :scratch:

The leg wave is common in mainland Europe.

 

Yes, they used to give a really cool, casual wave with the left hand, but you now get a leg dangle when they pass. I have taken to doing the same when cars / trucks give way too - drivers in Europe will understand motorcycle conventions, unlike most in this country.

In the Hebrides you raise one finger from the steering wheel or handle bars as a gesture of thanks when someone has given way to you on a single track road with passing places .

If you visit one of the Hebridean Islands and the remotest parts of Scotland, everyone waves at each other. It is the sheer excitement of seeing another driver, having possibly gone for hours without seeing anyone at all.

I posted my response as you posted yours. On Islay all the fingers are shown and on Tiree it is just the index finger.

are you sure they are waving, and not just shaking their legs because they didn't stop to have a proper slash, just had a google out of curiosity, and you can get a type of urinal with a tube that goes down the leg,

It's called a catheter and piss bag but they are not usually worn out of choice.

My mate who had a VW Camper used to do it . I never saw exactly what he did because I was probably looking to see what we were about to crash into .
