Nod back. It's an acknowledgement of being a fellow motorcyclist/biker. we're not like confirmed car drivers, if you break down, just pretend we havent seen you etc. Obviously only nod/ acknowledge with your hand/ flash your light but only if it's safe to do so. Dont try it banked over in a bend etc. Or if on this site, go into profile of who nodded you and press 'NOD' same effect. Does that help ?

Indeed, it's similar to the real life nod. A sign of respect, a welcome message, etc. Could also indicate that someone has an interest in you

Purely respect and welcome from my point of view

Shows respect to fellow riders, nothing more, nothing less.

Yup a nod begets a nod or a wave.......just be aware that some riders from main land Europe use a foot extended to the side instead of a nod.......doesn't mean they mean to kick you lol......

That's when I nod... When I've chatted with someone in the Forums.. or someone has said something outstandingly lush and it's touched a nerve.. or they've just been out and out supportive/fantastic/loving/giving/caring/whatever about someone else...


Mark of Respect..


If I used the Nod because I "fancied" someone.. I wouldn't nod.. because I'm desperately shy at telling a bloke how I feel about him.. and the thought of nodding at someone because I thought they were hot and then anxiously waiting to see if I ever got anything back.. Eughw the thought brings me out in a cold sweat...


Thankfully.. not an issue at the moment... hopefully the moment will continue.. cos eughw.. now read above again...

Yep I don't bother nodding (on here) unless they nod first, especially if its a guy they usually think it means you fancy them so its easier just not to do it! But on the road its a diff story I always nod to other bikers and if they don't nod back I don't lose any sleep over it
