    Did not know this. But again, when you don't own a car, everyday is a ride to work day.

    I always think it's weird when I see it come up.

    Why make a conscious effort for "Ride to Work Day", when it's the obvious choice most days?

    Funny. It's been ride to work everyday for me since the beginning of May.
    But the majority of other bikers around my workplace are weather-sassy. Today happens to be a 'riding' day since the sun is out and temp. is over 20C.
    Then again I use a foldable bicycle and two trains to get to work during off-season so riding the FZ is often a luxury compared to that even if weather is not ideal.

    From 1990 to 2000, I rode my 1989 KLR 250 30 miles (round trip) to work.

    Unless it was in the 30's (F), I rode, rain or shine..

    Put 73,000 miles on that bike before I sold it.. (Two LS main crank bearing replacements every 32,000 miles)

    Every day was "ride to work day!"

    Somewhat abashed to say, I'm a fair-weather rider. Part of that is b/c I can (it's 15 mins to work, whether in car or on bike), part of that is b/c I'm lazy (e.g. I have a rainsuit but have yet to actually use it). To be fair, I don't golf in the rain either (once the grips get wet and I can't hold on to them, forget it - have seen to many flying clubs). So kudos to those of you who ride in any/all weather conditions. For the rest of us, we can show solidarity with you on the 19th.

    Sidenote - my building parking lot has my FZ6, a Triumph Street Triple, a Honda Valkyrie, and an older Moto Guzzi California. Slim pickings really (all but the Guzzi work in the same company).

    Here in Australia, we are not part of the International Ride To Work program, (god knows why not)
    But it has spurred discussion about us starting some sort of National day, probably in April or October/November on the cusp of Winter/Summer to try and get as many of us from North to South participating.

    While I wont be part of this years event, I'll be thinking of you all and I WILL BE riding to work 'coz thats my everyday- rain or shine!

    The 900 Tracer, based on the MT-09 (FZ-09 in US), but with a bigger tank, more wind protection, slightly taller (but with an adjustable seat) and risers. and I've ordered it in the slower blue
