Remember - Tomorrow is National Ride to Work Day!

While I ride to work each and every day, I want to make sure y'all remember tomorrow, July 19th is "National Ride to Work Day"!

I'm looking forward to seeing a whole lot more than 2 bikes tomorrow!

Since I'm retired, do I have to get a job to participate? Maybe I'll just ride down some rural back roads and call it work.

I ride to work every day as well, rain or shine. Especially with the gas prices were seeing this summer. I have been saving at least my bike payment and insurance payment at a minimum each month in gas just riding the bike on a daily basis.

You should go out and ride around for 8 hours, then call it a day.

Everyday is ride to work day for me. There's a bunch of mostly weekend riders at work (motorcycles are the new golf) that I've told about the event, I know some of them will be riding that day.

It's not an adventure unless you need a tent, a passport, and a leather glove for your shooting hand.

Any riding you do should be a tax-writeoff as "Suzuki R&D." :lol:

(Just don't forget to write a letter to Suzuki with your likes/dislikes about your Strom.)

Tomorrw is the day I'm most likely to NOT ride to work. Too many clueless 'tards out on bikes tomorrow.

Natural selection WILL be occuring!!!!! All the noobs that have zero experience, and went out and got a bike due to gas prices, will be out in FULL FORCE. Kinda scary!!!!!

Lots of riders out in shorts, tanktop and tennis shoes too!!!! OUCH..... :roll:

im finding it hard to be motivated to ride to work in full gear with the Hot Hot weather. my cage has nice A/C. sorry.

its not a "dry heat" like other places (AZ or CA), it feels like a sauna. :shock:

In Florida, it ain't dry either! More like a steam bath!

However, I ride in full gear each day, every day.

Never hurts to sweat a bit - tends to help the gear fit better!
