ADV Salute on Boulder Canyon yesterday- WRR Hi Viz jacket

Whoever this was, I'm hoping your're an ADV'er because I gave you a big salute as we passed in the canyon yesterday around 5:30.



Does anyone else do this when they see other guys on dual sports? Someone is probably going to turn around and kick my ass one day...

Riding a WR250R with the anodized forks, and wearing a hi viz jacket- looked like an Olympia.

This seems like what happens when I give the ADV salute from my mtn bike to the local moto riders around here...must be something lost in translation.

wow! One of the few times I've felt bad for bikers. Target fixation at its finest. There was no reason for that.

Rf600?!

So, aside from the WOW factor of this video...is that a 97 RF 600 R that pulled up to help him? That's so cool if so, I haven't seen one on the road in ages. First bike I ever bought brand new (dropped it in the gravel parking lot before I left the dealer haha. )

I know there are a bunch of people on advrider, but flipping off someone you don't know without at least seeing a sticker probably isn't the best move.
