    What did you do to your bike today?

    Smoked the clutch in the zrx. Slipping like a bitch once it’s wrapped up. Knew I shoulda looked in there when I had the bike tore down.

    It’s official. Due to the danger of the corona pandemic and orders imposed by our governor. My facility is moving to a 24/7 work week. Management has found a loophole. Apparently painting sheet metal is essential to life.

    Got it dirty. My first ride of the year. Everything seems as it should but only 60 miles.

    I honestly thought his early decisions were well thought out. It took a lot of balls to close schools and bars/restaurants. Made sense. All medical folks agree on the fact that if you eliminate contact the virus dies. At some point hopefully public health will Trump the almighty dollar and we can all move past this. Hopefully! There are many people that don’t work because they’d rather not and lots of others that have been told not to go work. I’m not convinced that all these people lining up in front of Sam’s club before they open to buy all the toilet paper and eggs is the answer. Mostly just makes sure the shelves are empty when the rest of us get there after work.

    Honestly I find them infuriating. They talk about everyone being home together. Preventing spread and being safe. Who are they talking about. Most of us are living in a different world. Are the folks at gas stations, grocery stores, ups,usps,fedex and factories immune to covid-19? As other states shut down big business we here in Ohio are ramping up. Pennsylvania has also shut down manufacturing now. In there 30hr period given to close our sister plant churned out over 60 truckloads of raw material to our Ohio plant that will push us to 24/7 operation. Corporate lawyers already preparing arguments to side step any Ohio shut down. They’ve already managed it in California. My wife works in hospital administration and has been working 13hr days 6 days a week. Healthcare workers connected to non-essential procedures are being strung along as well. Offered work 2 days a week so after paying for insurance and such barley bringing home a pay check and preventing them collecting unemployment. This is cheaper for hospitals than filling open jobs with permanent staff and letting others just stay home. It also puts many more at risk. The positive case numbers are a joke. Locally folks that are very sick are tested for flue and other illness and if they are negative there assumed to have covid-19 and sent home. Testing is only being done if you’re sick enough to require hospitalization. The whole thing seems to be a shit show.

    Thanks. Normally I’d say as soon as I need the room for another project I get super bored in the cold months. However this ones been around a long time and my wife would loose her shit if I ever sold it. This is the red bike I’ve been riding for years. Currently building one for my son as well so that should keep me entertained.

    Yesterday I got a care package for my tracer. Birthday present a couple weeks early. Crash bars, driving lights, tank bag straight from Motostorm/Givi in Italy. My wife has quarantined the package for a couple days. This sucks.
