Default Unwritten rules for harley riders

My wife just got a iron 883. She keeps asking me about the unwritten rules for harley. I just tell her don't act like a *** and never ever wave to people on scooters. Does anyone else have any?

Do the wave so you look like your scraping your knuckles on the ground to look cool

Blip throttle at stop lights

Don't worry so much about stupid, phony "lifestyle" crap that you crash your Iron 883.

Ride your own ride. Wave to whoever you want. Don’t dis anybody else’s ride. Including metrics. These aren’t Harley rules. They’re common sense.

If you start dissing other people’s rides be prepared to take a lot of abuse. The 883 is at the bottom of the Harley snob pecking order.
