I've had people on dirt bikes, mopeds, 4x4's etc. flash three fingers, two fingers(used to mean peace)the thumb and little finger extended, etc.

They usually smile when they do this and I smile back and wave not having a clue if they're insulting my mom or what.

I would appreciate some answers...thanks.

I'd agree with Wil, mountainbikers I notice almost always give an indicator of how many people are coming behind them.

I'd tell you about my truck but you probably wouldn't believe me.

you're probably just describing the generic "Hawaii surfer" version of the peace sign,(close your fist and put the thumb and little finger out to mimic an old phone reciever) also seen at just about all rock concerts, except then it's usually both hands up in the air doing it, with the addition of the index fingers out, like "devil horns".
usually younger people who think they're "cool" do it. (like it's just so square to give a peace sign, man.)

That would usually mean, two more or three more coming, as a warning to not run them over.

We do the same thing to warn others that theres a convoy of trucks behind us.

And here I thought all these nice mountain bikers were using sign language to tell me how "knarly" and "far out" my truck was. Damn.
