When I wave to other riders am I suppose to put my arm up or out. The riders on cruisers wave at me with their arms out, but I find it's easier to put my arm up. Is this okay?

LOLed pretty hard at both goldwing and harley ones. I try to wave all the time but I have missed a few because I'm a new rider and too focused on constantly looking around me. Feel kinda bad tho. I hate when people dont wave back when I do :'(

The traditional wave in the US is a peace sign down low. I found it easy to do on my Triumph Daytona, I assume the same would be true on a CBR.

I wave to everyone, even VW Bugs (I owe 2) :D I even wave to scooters, I find they are the one group that generally doesn't wave back. Maybe they don't feel worthy and are shocked when someone on a Sportsbike recognized them first. I ride with allot of Cruiser style bikes being a active member of the PGR.
