Tomorrow is the anual ride to work day. 07-18-07 Wdenesday

Ride your motorcycle or scooter on this day to demonstrate:
The number of motorcyclists to the general public and to politicians.
That motorcyclists are from all occupations and all walks of life.
That motorcyclists can reduce traffic and parking congestion in large cities.
That motorcycles are for transportation as well as recreation.
That motorcycling is a social good.

I made sure to do it last year.
Right now it's saying a 60% chance of thunderstorms here
, and it's currently raining pretty good
.

I'll have to check before work, but I'm gonna try.

This is from last year (or maybe 2 years ago???). Good thing I work nights. The boss probably wouldn't have liked this.....

I ride everyday that chance of rain is 20% or less all 12 months. This is not one of them. We get 75% of our annual rainfall from July - September, so not a lot of bike commuting is possible.

I rode, but I didnt see another bike on the road anywhere, coming or going.

Though I never do. I go to work at 11am and leave after 7pm so most of the commuters have already made thier trek before I get out.

Ha! Had forgotten about this but I guess I took care of it. I ride every day unless the bike's having issues or I need to pick up something huge - even then I tend to ride the bike then come back and get the car...

There were, however, few bikes out yesterday since it was raining (gotta have good raingear in oregon....)

AND I went grocery shopping on the bike (I love my ammo can saddlebags) - I can do my "normal" grocery shopping on the bike as long as I empty the bags before going to the store.
