    Just curious how many rode their bikes to work today on National Ride Your Motorcycle to Work Day.

    I would have except for two things...

    1) My primary is still torn apart waiting for a new rotor to come in 
    2) I work at home

    I completely forgot about the date but since I drive to work whenever I can (30-40 miles all nice back roads) I can say yes I did. I just blamed all the bikes on the road on the end of Laconia bike week. Silly me.

    I got up early and had a good hour's ride before going into work (cos I only live 2 miles away so usually not worth getting Ethel out of the garage). Will defo need to be doing that again soon (o:

    PS Rufcut - it's alright for these part timers!!!!!! Lol (o:

    Road 45 mins to catch a ferry to San Juan Island. Road the ferry for a little over an hour. Road less than a minute to my 1st call, finished it in 10 mins. went to my 2nd call, finished in 20 mins, About a minute back to the boat, caught the same boat back to the mainland and rode a couple hours back home. Rough day.

    I need my tools for work so I had to do my riding after work because I have not figured out how to haul Ext. ladders on a streetglide safely yet.

    I rode mine to work. I don't think the powers that be approved of the idea, but I am in good enough graces that it didn't become an issue.

    I ride everyday in the summer. It's the best way to get downtown Chicago, plus the parking is cheaper!

    I maybe noticed a few extra bikes on the road, but not as many as I thought there would be :(
