I have had many hikers truly appreciate my courtesy... which means they don't usually get it from others...

I'm actually a very nice person. I too slow to a snails pace or stop for most hikers.

Seriously though, I will admit that by and large, the ktm groups are the least friendly when I am in destination areas like moab or the like. Sad but true in my experience. That said, when out on a ride with a couple of duc groups, two have tended to be rather uppity and hence, I don't associate with those groups.

I think there is a correlation between attitude, affluence and arrogance, and the perception there of.

I know when on my Duc I do tend to look down on you. Obviously your theory on affluence doesn't quite hold...

Do you guys wave to other bikes on the street? I used to, but given the low rate of return wave, what's the point..

Not very many other motorcycles will wave to a dirtbike on the street, I've found. If they wave first I'll wave back.

I try to wave. Harleys excepted. They generally won't wave back anyway.
