Motorcycles. My wife and I rode to the Richard Petty Museum today, about 20 miles from our home. Museum was closed but they are open Monday thru Saturday with shortened hours, 10 until 2 as of late. Not another soul on the property so we sat in the rocking chairs out front and enjoyed the quiet while contemplating the noise potential just inside the locked doors. 83 degrees but with strong winds. We took the long way home enjoying the extremely light traffic. Social distancing at it’s best.

The wife and I have been riding the dunes every day this week. Most days we've had it all to ourselves.

I took my bike out a couple times when the weather was decent. Plan on riding as much as possible just to get out and about. I don't need to stop anywhere except for some gas and pit stop.

rode yesterday, finally hit high 60's or low 70's. Car traffic was few and far between..it was awesome. I'll be riding a lot more as soon as weather warms up...it's been a cold, gray, windy and rainy spring around here. Riding is one sure way to lift the spirits.

I've been out a couple of times, about 25 miles each time. Weather is still pretty cool here in The Great Lakes.

Yes, the best Rx in these rimes of social distancing is riding:

"• Avoid crowded spaces: Ride motorcycles.

• Do not use public transportation: Ride motorcycles.

• Well-ventilated spaces are virus free: Ride motorcycles.

• Wear gloves: Ride motorcycles.

• Keep at least six feet from other people: Ride motorcycles.

• Keep a positive attitude: Ride motorcycles!
"

But be sure to wear protection -

Under this current lockdown we're only allowed out for exercise once per day - I ride 10 miles on my Specialised.

There's no limit to the time or number of exercise events you can legally carry out - although the socially-responsible (and Government advised) approach is to be sparing with your time outside.

I am getting out on my Cube or Felt for an hour-ish most days now. The KTM is hooked up to a trickle-charger, waiting....

I get it... lots of comments I've seen involve riding for mental health - recreation. No arguments there.

I'm not anti-Police in any way however;
What's the thinking of limiting traffic or a demand that travel by car or ? be "essential" ? Just to try enforcing STAY AT HOME ? I ask because the roads seem clear and very safe, nobody in a hurry and what a nice time to clear one's head or get out in a way that permits the best case of social distancing, even stopping to fill up the car / bike, nab a few groceries or snacks .... Police are now tasked with following, tracking or investigating such things ?

I've seen plenty of notations now that even Police space and contact is very controlled / limited. Seems silly or at very least, a bad example set when coming up with an excuse to invalidate a true safety issue for ALL or waive mitigating tactics with invented social interaction situations. ???

I'm one of the lucky one's- The date code on my CB750 tires are getting long so it's pretty much essential for safety concerns that I wear them out soon. I'll admit I'm a shorter season ride these days though and don't do the year 'round thing lately. 25 to 30 degrees didn't used to feel so cold a few years ago.

* Enjoy and be safe

We are supposed to stay local in our lockdown, not moving into other areas. If I hit the backroads I can still stay local because it's still our district and there are no towns. The other way I hit towns and change districts. I'm staying local for now, if and when I go for a ride it's be on little used (gravel) roads and law enforcement non existent....maybe.

The cops were busy yesterday kicking dirt bike riders out of legal riding areas near me. Makes no sense.
