    June 18th : Ride to Work , Work to Ride Day : Did you ride to work today?

    I was in a rush this morning to get to work and so had no time to put my gear on, besides I had to take a morning conference call whilst driving.
    I totally forgot about Ride to work day.
    Anyways, I pulled into the parking lot and saw more than usual number of motorcycles.And that is when it hit me. I couldn't fathom letting my biker brethren down so at lunch I drove back home, got me something to eat, kissed my son & wife, hopped on the Fazer and rode back to work with a big grin.

    I'm ashamed to say I totally forgot about it. But I didn't see much more than usual for turn-out here.

    I usually ride to work. But knowing it is ride to work day, I decided to take the ZRX instead of the Weestrom.

    I don't really ride to work any more. Not really worth the time it takes to get ready, uncover the bike, wait at 3 lights, and make 1 left hand turn and 1 right hand turn all in a 1.8 mile trip.

    Sadly not - 0.8 miles would barely get up to proper operating temperatures!

    Yep. I always ride unless there is ice on the roads. Today is my first day back to work after vacation; I rode in. Normal amount of bikes in the bike parking today.

    I did an saw nearly no bikes on the road. Far fewer bikes than a usual day to and from work for me.

    You know it, can't say I saw more bikes at my workplace either... although the few that are always in the parking lot are die hard types that ride damn near year round.

    I used to do it every time that event date rolled around, but alas the job I have now I have to drive the company car.

    Rats.

    At least it's free gas and nearly free wheels.

    I work at the corporate office of my company so it's filled with a lot of "rich yuppie" like people. I'm one of 3 motorcycle riders in the office of 250. Kind of sad.
