Never spoilt the ride I just find it amusing that most don't acknowledge other bikers..
I'll ask a GS rider about his bike but no-one who rides a GS has ever said what's the S10 like...

I am always intrigues by those who don't return a nod on the road. Is the bike or the bloke? Or does the bloke determine the bike...?

I do find that when stopped for that cuppa'n'sarnie large GS riders rarely acknowledge me with my 650 Dakar. I think some of them think I'm somehow on a "baby GS" and don't appreciate that I don't want a big twin, it's a choice I've made to have more fun (as I see it).

And I'm not knocking anyone else's choice of steed; I've sure you love your 1200GS Bushman as much as I love my 650.
Find the same with my F650gs Twin

I'll wave and talk to anybody as I need some friends :whistle: :S

I noticed it was actually powerrangers that do not nod back. I was thinking to put some sort of experiment in the place and the only idea springs to my mind is to show them a finger instead to see if they would respond :evil:


ps, heres Hi from another BMW.

I was going to say that it is surprising bmw riders are not more friendly given the amount they break down , I stopped today for one sat on the pavement at a roundabout and asked if he needed help but no he had bmw service coming out to get him, so they just don't need the rest of us.

I'm a GSer and I always nod or wave.

There was a guy who I saw on a regular basis on an RT and although I always nodded I never got anything back, so one day when I saw him, I flipped him the finger, he nearly fell off his bike looking at me - he nodded after that!

I get lots of waves with either one or two fingers as I pass the plastic boys on a proper bike. :laugh: :laugh:
