Sooooo, why wouldn't you ride to work if it's not supposed to rain? I ride to work every freaking day I can! Why do we need a national ride to work day?

I ride to work all the time too, but there I days I have to cage, such as if I have to carry something to work, not going home after work, golf/gym/grocery shoping etc...


There are TONS of people who do not ride to work that have bikes. Motorcycles on the roads are a minority. Motorcycle commuters are a minority inside of a minority. To get them to all do it, you have to have a "day". It makes the ordinary average guy feel part of a group, part of a cause, part of something more than just a day at work.

I can understand people not riding to work when it's raining or if they have to carry stuff to or from work. But other than that, why wouldn't you?

Wifes car is in the shop. Been riding my bike to work for the last week everyday. Before that it was 2 or 3 days a week. :)

Sometimes I want to wear sandals (and/or shorts), and sandals and motorcycles don't mix.
Sometimes I work out in the morning, and am too sore to ride.
Sometimes I'd rather listen to my music than my engine (no iPod).
Sometimes I'm sunburnt, and the wind hurts (yes, even through the jacket).

Why not 5 days a week?
Because if you live in hell hole like NYC and have to ride in to Manhattan, it kills all of the joy out of riding.

Hell, Bikers die a little inside every time they ride in to Manhattan.
