I'm kicking around the idea of picking up a good adv bike when we get back from our planned Central America/Mexico trip this winter. For some reason I just couldn't figure out why I had no desire to look at BMW's. It's strange because I'm a huge Bimmer fan when it comes to their cars. Then today as I was riding home on a Honda CBR 600RR, a BMW R1200gswhatever comes riding the oposite way on a two lane road. I do the natural thing and wave. He does nothing. Then it hit me. BMW riders never wave back. Harley guys wave. Goldwing guys wave. Other Dual sport guys wave. Do bimmer guys look at me like I look at scooter riders? I'd never wave to them. I'm better than them. (jk of course. But maybe not entirely.)
Anybody else notice this? What makes bimmer guys so different? If you are a bimmer guy, will you wave to a crotch rocket dude? I need to resolve this bc I am missing out on a big part of the adv bike segment if I continue with my distaste for BMW riders.
