Default Outrageous Claim! the Jeep Wave OWNS all other waves

I've had plenty of low # vehicles where enthusiastic owners flash lights or smile or wave or nod. My claim here is that the Jeep Wave is the most consistant, most common, most well known and best wave that exists. Being the owner of my 4th Wrangler, I am reminded everytime I drive that Impreza owners waving (and sometimes receiving back a "I will kill you" look) or even back to my MG ownership (owned 3 of them) or Lotus or Factory Five Cobra......there is NO wave that can come close to the Jeep Wave.

Every time one of you weirdos have waved at me over the years no matter which car we both magically shared.

I would counter that nobody owns only one Wrangler or one 911

They get in you and you must have another

Maybe they are just reminding each other of their fate.

When driving, my job is to ensure that idiots don't run into me. So looking for waves is the last thing on my mind.

I experience the Subaru wave all he time. Usually it's just a subtle lifting of fingers off the wheel... I reciprocate. If you bother I'll bother. It's only WRX and STI though, the rest of em are living in their own world.

I have found that the Harley wave extends most other bikes as well. Except crotch rockets and canams.

Riding a standard bike (Honda CB, SV650 and the like) Gets the most waves. Harley guys wave. Crotch rockets.. Even canams - which is funny because no one waves at them.

THIS.

I typically like to roll my window down and do one of those Jim Carrey grins from Dumb and Dumber when he was in the limo. Gets a wave every time.

Sport bikes do a head nod to each other, not so much to other bikers. At least that's how it works around here.

I now drive a lifted Lexus; so the Lexus crowd doesn't wave, and the offroad crowd doesn't wave.

The wave is one of many things I won't miss when my lease is up in October.
