Tomorrow, Wednesday July 20th, is the 14th annual Ride To Work Day when motorcyclists are encouraged to ride their motorcycles to work. The reasoning is that a mass turnout of motorcycles on Ride To Work Day will help show the size of the riding community and that will help underscore all the reasons why riding motorcycles are a good thing: Better gas mileage than most cars, taking up less space than cars, easing parking problems, etc, etc. If lots of people are riding then a bigger bite is being taken out of all those issues. But really…do riders really need encouragement to ride their motorcycles? Come on, get on that bike and ride! I’m a pinko-commie long hair and I’m all for the positive environmental impact that motorcycles represent but I’m ultimately in it for the fun. Not only do I have a barrel full of giggles every time I get on my GS, I also arrive at work relatively stress free and manage to get most of the day’s crap out of my head somewhere on the curvy road between work and home. Now *that* is a positive side affect to riding motorcycles!
In an amazing show of support, my co-worker Jeff actually managed to get The Man to fork out some corporate green to buy us riders breakfast tomorrow. I hope many other companies are doing the same…then again, if you require a breakfast burrito before agreeing to ride your motorcycle shame on you!
