I'm still pretty new to riding in general, so getting to go out when it's warm in sunny Maryland is a bit of a new experience (My MSF course was in the middle of a blizzard!). Romeo (83' KZ550) is running well. Sometimes a kick around the parking lots and side streets is just as much fun as a long roadtrip...

Happy riding everyone, enjoy it while we can.

Because we're in an 'at risk' age group, we've curtailed our Ridin' for a while :( . Our thoughts are, now is not the time to earn an ambulance ride or otherwise enter the healthcare system.

As always,
Good Ridin' ( & stay safe!)

Agree now is not the time to risk having to seek medical care.
That said, the number one place people injure themselves is at home!!!
For instance, I was trying to hang a hammock on my back deck.
The hooks let loose just as I swung my legs out and settled in.
Ouch!
Been a rash of cooking fires and craft project injuries out there since everyone started staying home.
Just sayin....

That said, I've got the valve cover off and I'm reshimming the valves. Waiting on shims from Fleabay now...

Plenty of ways to get hurt right here at home, be careful :)
