I learned a long time ago . When I was around 10 years old to get along . When me and my friends rode our dirtbikes around the cottage . We would always wave and smile .
We called it " Good PR " . WE would just idle along the cottage road and made sure to wave to all the neighbors .
Then when were out of sight we would just letter rip .
Then come back after our ride all covered in mud and again smiled and waved to everyone . Did that for years and no one ever complained . I know they could hear our loud 2 stroke bikes . We weren't fooling anyone . But they didn't get upset .
Now my boat is loud and to some can be annoying in a Marina setting .
I make sure to take the other boaters for a ride including their children . Kids love it . The parents offer to give me gas money but I never take it . I have even taken neighbors over 68 years old for a ride . These guys have all got great stories of when they were young and the fast boats they had when they were younger . I love listening to them . I figure it's better to make friends than not . And waving , I ride Harleys too so I wave to everyone Harley Jap bike doesn't matter .
Same with boats Go Fast or Cruiser even almost every Blowboater will wave back then scratch their balding heads wondering who the hell was that ? The how fast does it go and bet it uses a lot of gas questions do get tiresome but big deal . Just give them vague answers . Just be nice .
