Should You Wave to a Scooter?

Mark Rutledge, a columnist for The Daily Reflector, a newspaper in Greenville, NC, as well as a motorcyclist, opines that scooter riders have earned his respect for "the wave".

He explains that really cold temperatures during morning commutes have put many motorcycle riders inside of warm comfy cages. But not scooters riders.

As he goes on to say...
Nothing separates the true bikers from the wannabes like 30-degree temperatures. I've never really considered myself a true biker, but I like getting 50 miles per gallon too much to let a little cold air stop me.

If the temperatures were in the 20s, and my commutes were more than 12 miles, I might sing a different tune. But with the proper gear, a 12-mile ride in 30-degree air feels no colder than a 30-second sled ride in the snow - and nearly as much fun.

For a whole week, I haven't passed anything on two wheels above a scooter. But cold or no cold, those guys are still out there buzzing along from point A to point B.

Maybe the scooter riders are not trying to save gas. Maybe they had a bad day in court. Either way, they're doing something most people won't consider.

That buys them a spot in the wave club.
