I always wave to everybody and if I'm in a corner or a tricky situation, I'll just nod my head and I always wave to cagers who give me the right of way

Wave

Me too bikeguy. Scooterers tend to be suprised at a waive. They must be very proud!

I make a special effort for cagers who display thoughtfulness around bikes. There are few punishments for bad behavior so I try to dole out props for good behavior, no matter who small. Cheers
