    What did you do to your bike today?

    I’m guessing that would be an ego check

    Which bike were you riding?

    What do YOU need?

    I’ve heard other OR members speak of what you’re saying but I’m so used to the bike the way is now. I could see me tipping right into the asphalt with this quicker tip in you speak of. I probably should give it try at some point.

    Tim I have no problem with folks looking to bail. I get it, if they don’t want to be there, and are scared my guess is they aren’t going to be very useful. It’s not much different than riding. To me if you ride scared you’re going to be dangerous to yourself and others. I also feel if you don’t work, you don’t get paid. There are people that want to work and can’t at this point. These are the people I feel for. Ed I think the only way I could answer this truthfully is if I were in the situation. Sitting here I would tell I would stay on the front lines, based on commitment. Again I know that’s easier said than done, but my word means a lot to me. If I make a commitment I’m there unless I end up on my death bed. @Steve Butters I had the same thoughts.

    That’s because their mommy’s and daddy’s drive them everywhere and do everything for them. I told both my girls they had no choice but to get their license. I’m not carting there butts everywhere.

    We all have different ways of diffusing stress I guess. I can guarantee my ways have nothing to do with teaching or my job. Mine typically deal with powersports or exercising.

    I teach at a public school. Btw got an update from the wife’s principal and the teachers will not be dealing with food, but still reporting to do work.

    My wife is a teacher at a public high school and they told her she is to come in Monday and Tuesday. Makes little to no sense to me.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Rode about 425 miles in a little less than 8hrs. A bit of a lengthy first day, but it was good to be out.

    I still think motorcycling checks most of the boxes. Plenty of social distance, gloves, helmet to guard against others sneezes and coughs. If I can just get the weather to cooperate.

    No plans of necessarily railing it, but I doubt I’ll be riding the legal speed limit as well. We’ll see what Thursday brings. It could be crap weather. Not concerned about being pulled over if I’m obeying the law, but I don’t want to see Johnny around every corner.

    I was out and about yesterday and saw cops everywhere. They were in places I typically don’t see them. I was thinking of a motorcycle ride Thursday but if it’s going to be worse than a holiday weekend I don’t know that I want to deal with it.

    I’d agree. That’s more than my car.

    What did you do to your bicycle today?

    My oldest daughter Tory and I got out for a bicycle ride. We both enjoyed the ride, but man am I out of shape.
