"Well I guess it's all relative...got my first road bike in '83...does that make me a newer rider?!?" Yes it does. <chuckle> But like you said, everything is relative. <smile>
Look, I wave too. When it's convenient, when I see the other rider, when safety isn't going to be compromised by waving. I mean, I'm a warm and friendly sort of fellow, right?
But I don't get spun up if someone doesn't wave, and I honestly don't give a crapp if they don't. Honestly, I really don't notice other riders all that much, and whether they wave at me or not has absolutely no effect on my ride. It's just not something I give a $hit about. You've been riding almost as long as me...you don't really care if someone waves or not, do you?
But I was speaking in generalities and wondering if waving is more important to newer riders. Judging by what I've seen on here I think maybe it is.
