Hi Itzben, I bet that wave made your day. As a biker a quick nod of your skid lid to acknowledge each other when passing made your day that little bit better. Sad but true, us motorhomers always give a little wave to each other. We Up! Owners Club members need to adopt a specific wave between us, how cool would that be. I used to drive for Eddie Stobart and every time you passed one another you gave the official Stobart wave, flat back of your hand with a 90 degree wrist angle and fingers spread eagle. It would take the newbie truckers time to catch on but once adopted, never forgotten. How's 'bout it? I suppose simply acknowledging each other would be a start. Cheers, Jon.

Hi all. I think that a "club wave" would be a superb idea!
I'm not keen on the windscreen washer idea though. LOL. Any ideas? I'll have a think about it.

How about the first and little fingers extended with the index & middle fingers folded back into the palm?wud sorta look like a U for Up!
Suppose it could be misconstrued for Up! Yours tho to the great unwashed
but at least the forum members wud know we aren't being rude hehe
What you reckon?

So how about this :-
Fore & Little fingers extended with Index & Middle fingers folded back into the palm
so would represent a U for Up!
I suppose it could be misconstrued as an 'Up! Yours' to the great unwashed but forum members
would know that the 'waver' wasnt being rude! lol

Any other ideas for a club wave???

Hey Bob, I like that, the U shape with the first and little fingers. The poor Up! drivers not in the owners club will wonder why every other Up! driver they see is telling them to ef-of, bless 'em. I like it though.

What a superb idea! I really like it. Maybe if we get enough sugestions we could run a poll to determine what the general consensus think. My vote goes with you though Bob!

Hi Bob, been trying that....quite hard to do...and I thought I was supple in my hands being a guitarist and keyboard player.(all be it not very welll!).Natural instinct is to do the V sigh. Not good at all. How about a big grin and a wave.
Go well.

Hmm just been comparing the 2... i reckon the time honored V is harder cos you have to hold the 2 end fingers with yr thumb too, i found the middle 2 fold back easierand Id still give the Big Grin as I wave... gonna try it out and see what reaction i get ( when i see another Up! that is - only seen 4 others round this way so far!)

Keep on wavin'

LMAO .... didnt you know? we have a micro climate up here in Stakeford, 32degrees all year round !( Fahrenheit )


As an aside We are gonna give her a 'run in' down to Mcr tomorrow to see the outlaws - snow or not! My lil Nemo van fought her way from Newcastle to Portsmouth without a flicker during the last bad spell of bad weather (bless her) & passed several BMWs & Mercs costing 10x as much stranded on the M1 - and I reckon the Up! is far better than Nemo - so looking forward to see how she does
full report on return (full confidence in getting there & back!)
Give those heated seats a full test if nothing else lol

Hi Bob. I think that it sounds like a good idea! As long as the "U" is there I think that oscillating should be fine! Like yourself I'll give it a go if I see another up! driver, but they're few and far between round by me. Also I don't mind taking the blame, I'm used to it! LOL

All a bit complicated.....why not take a tip from the bikers who lift a boot off the rest - open the door and wave a leg out?
