more of the over thinking zone. also when your headlights are high most cars would stay away because it indicates that you're speeding

Did you say gateway to conception, I do not want any conception. I will take fornication, but please God, no conception lol.

In the UK most bikers just nod to each other

I usually just lift a few fingers off my grip to give the wave.

I've been watching your videos and am a subscriber. I found your information informative but the presentation seemed slightly annoying. But this video is awesomely entertaining and informative. I'm a fan xoxo

EVERY time another biker waves at me, I just give them the finger. FUCK YOU, I don't know you, you're an obvious douche, and I don't want to be your friend.

In Australia we just nod our head, can’t say I’ve ever witnessed anyone wave.

Sainsy maybe it’s different in each state not to sure then
Sainsy (16 days ago)
I most certainly have seen other rides wave. Have done it myself too
Jack Dicer (17 days ago)
Does he not realise that some bikes have both headlights on for low and both on for high.... And also that plenty of cars drive around with only one headlight working...
No one you know (7 days ago)
Even if the other car assumes I'm a car with one head light that is a good thing. They are less likely to turn in front of me.

God what an amazing intro
Chuck (18 days ago)
I remember being told that seeing one headlight could indicate a car with a burnt out headlight, and not to be fooled thinking that you have the safety or space for anything else.

Even if the subjects in your video sucked, I'd still subscribe because of the editing lol. Well done.
Albert Eliasson (19 days ago)
Hand signals???!!! I thought it was only your southern neighbours that were stuck in the depression era (=1930s)... When I got my licence, driver handsignals had been obsolete for years, and that was +25 years ago!

I just stick to the head nod most times, there are about two people in my town who are worth taking my hand off the bar to wave

If a motorcyclist wants me to see where he or she is, then it's better if I'm not dazzled. KnowwhatImean?
Markus Rubach (23 days ago)
I wouldnt say every motorcyclist makes these mistakes? WTF I have only one headlight on my motorcycle, if i switch to far lights then i dont get two headlights from it. So how could motorcyclists with the same type of headlight make these mistakes? What a fucked up show
Janet Greenslade (23 days ago)
In the uk generally we dont wave, just give a nod. And the majority of bikes dont have a second bulb up front for full beam - really only sport bikes
Major Danger (24 days ago)
Man i don't think we deserve the time and effort put into your videos. This is quality content at its finest!

Just keep elbow tucked and two down at an angle. Hard to confuse that with anything else.

in Australia we just nod
Jeff York (26 days ago)
Great video Ryan. Unreal quality. All you Brits with the whole head nod thing. In the states the only guys that nod are the poser assholes that fail badly at being anything and try as the will to be cool and badass, they nod because anything else would simply be un-cool and unmasquline and just not give off that badass look. Sorry, like one guy said, Hitler screwed us all with that Nazi straight arm and the poser Joe Dirt's screwed up the nod. So, its left hand out below the bars with two fingers extended in Victory over here.
rhayn hillyard (26 days ago)
England we just head nod as we drive on the left

The question is does the average auto driver knows the hand signals. I have not seen them used in many years.

Titus Cato (1 month ago)
It's illegally in Straya to have high beam on while approaching on coming vehicles anyway. So point is mute. And who the f**k waves these days? It's the sideward head nod or the upward nod. Even though they never nod back, because the chip on their shoulders gets in the way. I still nod at HD riders, makes me feel like the bigger person lol

Crikey, me ZX12R has twin lights that are both hardwired on.... Faaaark. Now I know why My 10s twin lamps has only one on, on low beam.

Are you auditioning for a Netflix movie? lol 😂 I have to admit , you really killed the motorcycle’s concepts in this one as soon as you threw in the word '' paradox’
Daryl Lonigan (1 month ago)
Just nod. Straya. Except Harleys. No one nods a Harley because they're too cool to nod back.

UK riders give the nod- that's your problem solved right there 👍

I have a single bulb headlight, so don’t have to worry about being mistook for a car, but still try to turn down headlights when approaching other traffic, hoping they will return the courtesy

One of my favorite videos so far great content 😂
Jetpilot24 (1 month ago)
Good points all, for sure. But my wave is left hand straight out and down usually. I can still see how this could be misunderstood I suppose.
Greg S (1 month ago)
I think your videos are awesome, very informative and fun to watch. Can you do video on damage remorse and how to cope with it? A couple weeks ago I dropped my brand new Tracer 900 GT (about only 650 miles on it at the time). Luckily it wasn't while careeening down the highway. No, embarrassingly enough it was while parking the bike in my garage. I thought I had the kick stand down and let go of the bike with the kick stand up. What happened next was ugly for me but would have been hilarious for someone watching. It fell on me, I tried to catch it but I was caught by suprise. I somehow jumped out of the way instead of getting caught between it and my nearby KLR650 dual sport. It knocked down the KLR and there they both lie, the KLR pissing radiator coolant all over the floor. I literally bled on my Tracer that night. Now I bleed for my new bike. Sooo sad. I rushed to upright both bikes, in priority order. I was devastated but I did not cry. Now my Tracer has damage and it bugs the hell out of me - I don't care about the dirt bike, I sold it. At first I thought the Tracer came out relatively unscathed, it has the Yamaha engine guards which helped a lot. It has a couple of rather insignificant super minor scuff/scratch marks on it, and also a knarly scuff on the headlight lense that I think is too deep to rub out. These are relatively easy to cope with. However, later I noticed the worst of it (so far), which I can't believe I missed. The on/off switch for the cruise control is missing, it snapped off along with some of the intrgral attach structure on the plastic housing. Unless I drop $160 to replace the whole swith housing assy, which includes several other controls, I have this ugly broken cruise control swith that I have to look at every time I ride. And I haven't even used this feature yet. Sigh,...sniffle,...meep. Please tell me this is normal and it happens to guys all the time. More importantly how do I cope with this and how do I live with myself as a biker who just took the jump back into street riding. What do I do?
Chrystal Frost (1 month ago)
Think of it as a learning experience. I bet you'll make sure the kickstand is down every time you park now.
MAJICK NINJA (1 month ago)
Never thought about the headlight thing before. Good info
A god in the gap (1 month ago)
1) riding with highbeams into oncomming traffic is illegal where I live … and an invitation for a LOT of high beam flashing from the same oncomming traffic, indicating to you that you are blinding them 2) EVERY bike here has blinkers obligated by law and no biker uses hand signals. Group riding set aside. 3) hmm, good point.

In the UK we don't wave we instead nod like bosses, Buses wave and truckers flash.

The solution for the biker wave is 'the nod'. Just nod your head at the other biker. Most common in right hand drive countries anyway
sean callahan (1 month ago)
My bike is a cruiser so the headlights I always have on high because it's the same area. No one waves as a motorcycle rider btw...you do two fingers angled towards the ground...I've never once waved at another rider.

I love the twilight zone like effects
Werner S (1 month ago)
Your thing about the headlight did not make sense to me, and the thing about the wave totally misrepresented the typical subtle wave, and going slower in a turn is dangerous??

Really nicely made with the Twilight Zone theme. Bravo for creativity and script. Motorcycling points are also on point. Keep it up with the great videos!

I don't recall anyone using hand signals in the last 20 years or so.

Grip in the corners... Move your f*cking weight! It's not necessary to go fast and going fast is more dangerous - you're not on a trackday where would not be unexpected obstacle - even if it would, it will be yellow flagged.

I liked the structure of this video. It was a humorous parody while also being very informative to a new rider. Thanks for the vid RF9

I get the high beams make you look like a car far away, but wouldnt 1 just look like car with a headlight out as well?
