    I haven't seen 6 other Mirages since I bought mine. As for waving, I've never been big on it. Even on motorcycles. I have a big cool scooter. A Burgman Executive. Some Harley riders are so idiotic. They will only wave at other bikes they think is a Harley. Some will wave at all motorcycles. And then there are some who start to wave at me, then notice it's actually a scooter and pull their hand back down and look away like they're embarrased they started to wave. All because of the structure of an engine (to create a step through) and a CVT. So silly.

    I don't see the point of waving at other motorcycles. I don't wave at every car I see when I'm driving a car ... why would I wave at a motorcycle? If I do wave I hold my hand up high and pivot my hand at the wrist like a ... well insert your description here, just to be annoying. I guess I'm like Woody Woodpecker ... an instigator.

    Just give everyone the middle finger.

    I don't have a bike but have a lots of friends with Harleys. Some are like you described, make fun of scooters, trikes, those weird can am 3 wheeled snowmobile/motorcyle looking things and little cars too lol.

    They also made fun of side by sides. They're in their 60's now and are slowly realizing jumping around on an 800lb quad all day is kinda like work, while us who have side by sides just sit there, point and go with zero effort involved.

    I stuck my whole arm out the window to give a big goofy wave at a passing Mirage this week. Response: nada.

    When I got my crappy Miata, I discovered that Miata drivers wave at each other very reliably.

    I'd say about 30% of convertible owners in general will wave at one another... but only when the top's down!

    Hmm... I wonder if Jeep owners when they have the top off wave at other convertible owners, or if there's a Harley vs. sportbike type of division there...

    Maybe we designate an official Mirage wave. Here's what I propose: When one sees another Mirage one, hits the auto-down on the left window, clicks off their seatbelt, jump your feet up on the seat and then shove your hiney out the window. No dropping pants, keep them on.

    But that can be the "official" Mirage to Mirage wave / acknowledgement, hiney out the window.
