    Default Biker handshake...

    ...that one where your hand goes from a conventional handshake to a kind of gripping each others fist position.

    What's that all about then?

    All I know is don't shake hands with MrTack unless you're well prepared for it. I forgot this on Sunday and lost the use of my right hand for 20 minutes...

    Exactly, though I noticed a few of "us" doing it yesterday as well. I've met a few bikers* who've shook my hand like it.

    *Not real HA type bikers, but it seems to be more prevalent amongst leather waistcoat wearers (Not that there's anything wrong with leather waistcoats of course)

    Real anyone has a firm handshake. Can't bear those types that feel like they've offered you something that'll break if you squeeze it. Or those that you count your fingers after to make sure they haven't stolen one.

    Offer, grip, squeeze, let go. It's not difficult.
