We don’t wave at scooterists because of history. Mods and rockers. Hated each other. Mods on scooters and rockers on motorbikes. Look up on Google. Maybe a British thing, but long standing animosity. Not sure it’s the same now, different generation to our fathers and grandfathers. But still two different camps still.

Thanks for that background. Spent the last 20 minutes on google and Wikipedia. It is (was?) British, it’s from before my time, and may not have been as much of a divide as maybe both sides and everybody else made it out to be at the time. Interesting bit of history.

I know all about it. I'm British originally, my dad was somewhat of a mod. Just wondering why we do all that boomer crap still. When riding season returns and the snow finally goes, maybe I'll wave at a few more. What about quads and trikes?
