It's not totally dead, but I live in a smallish town:

I was doing the pedestrian thing one day, and gave a Fiesta ST driver a hip-high thumbs up as I crossed in front of the car. He gave a head bob and a smile. It was cool. That's my only story... so far.

(btw, currently driving an SVT, seriously considering a new ST!)

Very rarely see any other ST drivers, but I wave at the ones I do see. Most wave back, if they see me.

I've seen maybe 8 different STs around here, while driving mine. In well over a year of owning it.

Waving is a motorcycle thing and it's a completely different brotherhood. Let the bikers have their thing that they've had for ages.

Sincerely,

A Biker/ST Owner

I hate the vast majority of motorcycle riders, and will continue to wave if only to spite them.

Maybe you're the guy who tried to run me off the road.. Back in 1968?

Or... The guy with the shotgun at the end of "Easy Rider"?

Maybe it's you're jealous.. Since it is like REALLY impossible to ride a bike with another potato stuffed in your shorts"

Yep, I'm jealous of people that absolutely have to make the biggest spectacle of themselves that they can, people that ride the center line, people that instantly turn into a bad ass when they get on a bike, and people that weave in and out of traffic, not caring if they cause an accident.

The South Park episode "The F Word" sums it up perfectly.

Those are only the bad ones and the ones you remember because they stand out. Most of us don't actually do that (unless its legal, like riding the center line in some states), and care for the safety of ourselves because in all honesty if a bike gets hit, the rider is likely to get thrown and hurt severely.
