    I wave about half the time. There's so many bikes on the road I don't see the point. If I'm riding in the winter I always wave as the other rider is as he's as hard core as me. I make it a point to...

    Yep, to my understanding pre 2005 was the worst. I think that's what the MOA article said. I haven't heard much about the 2010-up shafts.

    I need to hook up with someone that upgraded to WC so I can buy their old 911. I had though about moving up from my 2010 GS but decided to put more miles on it first.
