What is “The Biker Wave”

The “biker wave” how bikers acknowledge each other on the open road.  I also refer to it as the “drop handed wave”.  If you ever find yourself driving behind a motorcycle on a two lane highway, watch as other motorcycles approach.  The biker you’re following should take his left hand off the handle bar and drop it down and out.  Sometimes it’s with a full hand.  Other times it’s just two fingers.  I am a “two fingers in a peace sign” guy.


I love this.  This picture in particular is great.  A guy on a sport bike and a guy on a cruiser.  Mutual respect.  It truly doesn’t matter what you ride… just that you ride.

That’s the biker wave.
