Random anecdote that I was thinking of putting in "What Made You Smile Today":
I was driving on a really nice stretch of road by the river here, on a beautiful day. There was a motorcyclist ahead of me -- I can't tell makes of motorcycles on sight and I never saw a label but I'd guess it was Japanese. Smallish, cool-looking. The guy riding it had one of those fancy leather jackets, color-blocked (mostly black though), and a fancy full helmet (couldn't see his face at all), and cool jeans, and cool boots. Never saw any distinguishing features -- he even had gloves on I think -- but I assumed he was a guy in his mid-20's, a newly good job (everything looked pretty new), maybe in a creative or computer field.
After a while, another motorcycle guy came up behind both of us. (Motorcycle guy #1 was going about the same speed as me so I stayed behind him for a while.) Motorcycle guy #2 was riding something much bigger -- I'd guess a Harley. He was in his mid 50's/ early 60's. Lots of facial hair. A much smaller helmet perched on his head -- looked like it was from World War II (not literally, but the style). Some sort of 80's vented vest going on. Shirt sleeves. Regular pants. Old shoes.
A light ahead of us turned red. MG #1 stopped first. MG #2 pulled in next to him, a bit behind them. I wondered if there would be a "Brotherhood of the briar"-type manly recognition of solidarity, and sure enough MG #2 looked at #1, and #1 obligingly turned and made eye contact. #2 did a Manly Nod. #1 raised his hand and did this middle school "oh hi!" sort of wave.
#2 looked appalled.
