The “shelter at home” order in my home state places no restriction on traveling to exercise, or for a myriad of other reasons. The focus is on avoiding contact between persons that do not reside with one another.

There are mouth breathers out there who don’t take precautions seriously and are prime Darwinian specimens for spreading the virus wherever they go, however they go.

Those that avoid other people and take proper measures to prevent exposure to and spread of the virus have little reason to curtail solitary pursuits.
Like the guy at Costco yesterday that I watched open 2 boxes of oranges and sort through them to make sure HE got the best ones. While we sit here & wonder if its ok to ride our bikes. It still bugs me, but I didn't say anything cuz I didn't want to wind up on the 5pm news as the racist bad guy who spoke up.

Subject: [EXTERNAL]State of Ohio Stay at Home Order / Driving Cars and Riding Motorcycles for Recreational Purposes

With Governor Dewine's recent implementation of the Stay at Home order due to the COVID 19 crisis, are residents in Ohio still allowed to drive their cars and motorcycles for leisure without consequence? It seems to me that this is a safe activity and poses no risk of person to person contact.

Thank you.

Thanks Fuzzmon, that's interesting

Let the chuckleheads that think cities, counties, states and the fed would willingly "lose" money if it was a conspiracy. Forget trying to keep the conspiracy a secret when so many people around the world are involved.

If they want to embrace their contrails and ancient aliens, I say more power to them. Do your due diligence and let Captain Trips run rampant within the Derp Community. When this finally becomes mainstream and we all have immunities or vaccines, we'll probably see the History Channel be more about history and less about stupid crap like Bigfoot.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

The Chairman of the AMA board lives not far from me. Maybe I’ll ride over and ask him for his advice.

I wouldn't judge anyone's decision on this one way or the other, but when I am tempted to go out on a ride I think about a few things:

1) Right now the positive Coronavirus test results are at about 7-8% of those tested. So whenever I go out I figure for every 100 people I encounter, 7-8 of them may have it. Which ones? Nobody knows.

2) How bad would I feel if I went out on a ride, and against the slimmest of odds contracted the virus, brought it back home to the people I love most, and one of them gets sick, or even worse dies from it. I am sure I would hate myself for the rest of my life, and it would in no way have been worth a trivial motorcycle ride to me in hind-sight.

3) If I go out and against the odds have a get-off that puts me in the hospital, I would not only be potentially consuming medical resources that could otherwise be spent treating Coronavirus patients, but I would also be exposing myself to the Coronavirus by being in a hospital setting. See No. 2 above.

Anyway, having said all of that, I can't say I absolutely won't go out on a ride between now and the end of our WA State shelter-in-place mandate, but when I think about these things it certainly curbs the appeal for me.

Lets say your letter carrier has corona, touches your mailbox lid and your mail, and you then open the mailbox lid and grab the mail and bring it into your home where your family is

Lets say you don't have enough groceries to last for the next 4 weeks so you have to go to the grocery store and pass people in the aisles that may be carriers, or pick up a loaf of bread that had been picked up and put back by a carrier, or the shelf was stocked by a store employee that's a carrier and you pick it up and bring it back home to your family

..or just in walking around the grocery store you get it on the bottom of your shoes and bring it back home to your family.

There are a million ways this thing can get ya.

Take as many precautions as you can and hope for the best.

And if I lived in New York, New Jersey, Detroit, Los Angeles, New Orleans, or Washington State I would be terrified to leave my house for any reason.
