Miss Jan and I decided to practice a little social distancing on the KLR today. So far we've made a 70 mile circle staying within 20 miles of her house. Here are few pictures of our morning ride.

I would have to make a run for it to get to a "free zone".  This is what I am under (Rome, Ga), I guess I could say I was riding around looking for toilet paper. I am doing the MABDR the first of July, I have a reservation one night at the lodge where they filmed Dirty Dancing, I would hate to think I learned "Time of My Life" on the uke for nothing.

I have read that Graham County, Cherokee county and Swain county, NC have basically shut down to non residents.  Those counties contain a lot of great motorcycling roads and get a lot of riders from all over.  I think they don't want a bunch of tourists from NY and other hot spots coming and spreading the virus.


It may also because there are very limited health providers in the area and tourists could overwhelm them quickly. They are mostly concerned for their own residents and want the facilities for them.

The restaurants that have stayed open, have gone to drive-thru only/curb service/pickup only.

All elective surgeries and procedures have been canceled.

Healthy patients are sent home to quarantine. The hardest hit and most deaths, there is an underlining health issue. Lung issues will put you at a higher risk.

There is still a lot of traffic in Jackson County.

I think local rides in Alabama and using a little common sense you should be fine if you are healthy. Stay 6 ft from folks and enjoy your rides.

After watching way too much news and reading articles about this pandemic I am pretty much writing off the Spring riding season.  Some of my favorite riding areas have been closed off.  Restaurants, motels and campgrounds have been shut down across most of the country.  While I have never been hospitalized due to a riding accident I would hate to have that happen at this time.  I am limiting my riding to short local rides. 

I don't have a crystal ball and haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn Express for a long time but my guess is it will be around June before things start to somewhat return to normal.

Anyone willing to step up and host this event, I'll gladly share maps and POI along the route.

The campgrounds may not even be back open by then.....I guess we'll play it by ear, and plan it for later this year when things calm down.
