That is no excuse. You heard the man. Gotta ride to work, he didn't say anything about being scheduled or on vacation.

Or doing any work, or even stopping at work.  Just ride to work then go for a good long ride to clear your mind of any work related thoughts.  That's all they are asking.

Yeah, is that too much to ask?

Is today Monday, June 16, 2014?

If no, then it doesn't count for this campaign.

My commute is from my bedroom to my home-office, which is about ten feet in total.

So, to commemorate this day, I'll take a lunch break on that day and hit some twisties over lunch.  I'll have tires that need to die at that point.  I'm hitting Laguna Seca on 6/23 with the Speed Triple.

It's not on my list of things to sell - but try me.  I might.

Ride to work almost every work day (no real winter here) 
got to take the truck now and again or the neighbors might think it's been abandoned
