Cars R Coffins is at the intersection of 34th and Lyndale. Northwest corner.I quite often see the same motorcycle parked out front when I go by on my way to work. So, yeah, so maybe they don't mind anything on two wheels. There always seems to be plenty of parking out front. I wonder what time they are open until. Seems to be closed when I ride back down Lyndale after work. I'll take a closer look tomorrow when I work.

Where is this Diamond's?

Yeah we generally don't wave at motorcycles. We honk at other scooters if we see them in time though. It's not a snub so much as that most motorcycles ignore us, so we ignore them. But most motorcyclists don't wave at each other either.

This is like the Ann Landers toilet paper up or down discussion.

I've noticed that in town, there isn't a lot of waving going one - I think that folks are trying to pay attention to the traffic. But I'll make a special effort if I see another scooter, especially in the suburbs.

On the road out of town, everybody waves. Sometimes just one-finger, but everyone waves.

is it better to honk, wave or put your hand down to the side like you see some of the motocyclists do?

I try to hit them with a paintball gun. That's what I miss about the Stella, the easy access to the glovebox.
