Just curious

My daughter and I were on our way home from shopping when a motorhome passed us. She asked if there was a greeting that motorhome people used when passing each other like jeep owners or Harley riders. I said I have no clue. Interesting thought. So, my question, is there?

I have no problem with a wave. I would respond.

Now I wonder what jeep owners do? I do not own one now, but loved the CJ I had long ago. I was not told what our greeting was.

I have never owned a Harley. I know many people who do, but they never shared their greeting with me.

I do own a segway. We do not have a particular greeting I can recall.

I taught skydiving for a dozen years. We had a greeting for people whom you meet in freefall. That greeting would be difficult to do to a passing motor home.

I like to wave. My DW doesn't want me to . Both hands on the wheel is her motto.

I say wave away. Been doing it for years to other Jeep Wranglers. Albeit most new Jeep JK drivers don't know about the Jeep Wave.

I wave and so do my kids, Unless I see another CC, then I make a "C" with my hand as I wave. When we had the Winnebago, I made a "W" with my hand. It makes my girls crazy and makes me smile

I always wave. Makes me smile when a wave is returned.

I too am curious what the Jeep greeting is.

I believe a motorcycle greeting is pointing towards the ground with the left hand? Correct me if I'm wrong.
