    I'm not picking on you for going for a ride as I understand the need to get away and this is a general question to all that read this.
    If you come a cropper and crash how will you let the emergency services know you are supposed to be in quarantine?
    Do emergency services now treat all incidents as potential virus cases?
    I do feel it is up to us as riders to look out for others who may be involved with us on a ride for whatever reason while this horrid virus is out there.

    As former police and current medical: treat all as potential threat until otherwise known.

    Yours are interesting questions and points, Adrian, but I think those are better raised in other threads, e.g., https://advrider.com/f/threads/travel-in-the-time-of-covid-19.1431786/, than in deflecting this one from its title and purpose.

    Yes I may be a little selfish, maybe not! All depends how responsible my riding was.
    My ride was socially isolated and self contained.
    Prepare for the worst, anticipate the worst, and smile when you are over prepared, over anticipated and thankful.
    What do you do when the sky falls? Walk over it, around it, or through it, just don't stop walking.
    Rule one Don't crash! Rule two avoid fear! Rule three be positive and responsible for your actions!

    Today NYC my wife had to go to her office. She asked me to drive her so she would not have to make contact with anyone or touch any surfaces of the public transit system. She asked if we could take the bike. Shocked I said ok. And we did.

    We have been looking for something a bit lighter for my wife. We love the retro bikes and have several older bikes to ride. When we saw Kawasaki's new Z900RS both of us went WOW!
    We looked at everything we could about them, specs, test ride evaluations, youtube videos by the dozens, etc.
    Our local dealer had two in stock. The seat height is an issue but can be easily changed. Today we test rode the bike and Lesa will pick up her new lighter bike in a day or two.
    Here is my gal with a smile on her face.
