    I think this covid 19 will give a little boost for the adv community. For me i shoot clays on a thursday.friday & Saturday and if you know anything about this sport its not cheap.all the clubs have cancelled all comps on the wkends and even some have cancelled practice days.so for me this means more riding and alot more spare money to spend on the bike and riding gear.now i am not saying go for a long ride across any state.but more day rides.
    I know some will/ might loose hrs or even there jobs please remember we are a adv community here and here help each other

    Pack a little lunch, full fuel tank [ carry a little spare maybe ] and just ride by yourself.

    Wife often says "where are you going for the ride". My usual reply is "No idea whatsoever".

    Got to lol at certain fb adv ride groups. People screaming STAY HOME.
    Sure. You go over there and self isolate and worry about the world ending.
    I'll ride, if I feel like it. No one but me in my helmet.
    Each to their own.

    Ride On
    America, 2007


    Ride on into the driving rain
    Once more follow the trail
    Long gone into the setting sun
    Ride on you must not fail

    Speak out carry the message forth
    Make time use every day
    Reach out to every shining star
    Ride on follow the way
    And if your journey should end in the promised land
    Make sure to speak with a voice loud and true

    Great plan, you fall off, need medical assistance, get transported to a hospital full off Virus infected patients. If you where joking fine. But I want my daughter who is doing the front line in our area hospital. I want her to come out the other end and get to hug her children again. We all need to do as we are asked - STAY AT HOME.

    Things will be ramping up a lot soon, people won't be out riding for enjoyment.

    Dont be fooled that everyone who works in a hospital have work.now its only selective surgery most nurses and staff like myself have little to no work unless this epistemic goes out of control..so shelf isolation for me today lol

    Well there goes the argument of medical staff wanting you to stay off the bike in case of injury
