Its the law to wave to another cyclist unless A. They are on a bicycle or scooter. B. You are going in the same direction ( then a head nod is in order) or C. you are on a divided highway.

Today I was riding and a guy across the highway was tapping on the top of his helmet like he was trying to signal something to me. Does anyone know what this means? Are there other motorcycle hand signals that I should know about?

Damn, the only one I knew was where the other guy puts his middle finger up at you, you get pissed off but by the time you get to do anything he's already passed you.

Thanks CSBrad for the Vid!

Just one finger tapping or whole hand? If it was his whole hand it might have meant come over here?

I think the head nod it the way to go, two fingers on the shoulder to me means officer.

There was a car full of girls the other day, and I could have sworn that they were signaling me to go back down the road and go down on them. When I got home I realized that I lost a pack of smokes. :-[

Does anyone find it annoying when you wave to a fellow rider and the totally see you but refuse to wave back?

R-E-S-P-E-C-T :D

I like waving to other motorcyclists it builds community. Even though you might not know a person, you feel part of a group!

TICKED OFF
Extend your left arm straight out with your elbow bent 90 degrees. Carefully extend your middle finger to clearly demonstrate your dissatisfaction with the other guy. NOTE: It is not recommended you do this when you are alone.
