3-27-20 Rode to Fullerton DMV this morning...



KTLA 5 Megan Telles was there! The DMVs are closed due to Coronavirus.

I have to renew my license and get a Real ID, before the DMV closed said by appt only - my license expires in April and appt is in June?!

Hope it will be open by then.



Went home, had lunch then rode out again...



Rode to the Port of LA to see the Mercy hospital ship!



KTLA 5 was there but wasn't able to get to where the van was parked.

No mass arrests. You can ride your motorcycle. You can take a walk, etc.

If you are a business that is meant to be closed and you're ignoring the order, expect the police to come knocking to shut your doors. Large gatherings will also get disbanded.

Thanks, Tosh. Weird times right now, especially with the order that was just sent out last night.

I just called the Triumph dealer in Brea to see if they were going to stay open, since they have my bike in their shop getting the fender repaired. The guy said that for now, they're still working on the bikes they have in service now, and want to stay open. But, if anything changes, they'll call customers who have bikes in their shop.

We just had a meeting at our office, and delegated out all of the projects that we can all do from home, and we'll try to have one person here on a rotating schedule for phones and shipping. Our UPS guy just dropped off, and is pulling his hair out, trying to figure out what businesses are or are not open along his route. "Crazier than Christmas" he said.

My wife is in an interesting position. She's a nurse practitioner, and while she's home-bound for at least another month with her recovery, she just had a phone conference with her agency. They might be able to set up a tele-health service for Coronavirus care and screening and other healthcare with people stuck at home. So, people are already figuring out how to adapt to the changing times.

Good luck, everyone!

Had a bit of a scare recently. Riding to work, a distracted lady turned left in front of me, then saw me at the last second, and, yup, froze in her tracks, stopping her SUV dead in front of me with about 60 feet of closing distance.

Luckily, it was on a small street near my office, so I wasn't going very fast, and was actually able to aim for the gap between her front wheel and fender to buy myself a few extra feet as I hauled on the brakes. Stopped without a substantial impact, with my front tire going into the gap, holding my bike up like it was in a wheel chock. Smashed my front fender, but that was really about it. Her insurance is paying for a new one.

Coulda been way worse, but I gave it a lot of thought. My wife is undergoing a lengthy recovery from surgery, making my income all we've got until she's well enough to work again. If I were unable to work due to that accident, we'd be screwed (yeah, we'd get a settlement down the road, probably). Plus, with the whole Coronavirus situation, people around my area are driving like zombies. This probably isn't the best time to go into a hospital with an injury because someone was more worried about their next roll of toilet paper than the other vehicles on the road.

As long as the roads are empty, and I can get to work just as fast in my car, I'm going to put the bikes on tenders until everyone chills out, or my wife is back to work.

Glad you're ok!  I agree that lately the traffic has been good enough for me to drive regularly.  Luckily the drivers on my route haven't been much different than normal.

Hope the wife recovers quickly.

Iíll share my thoughts.. probably going to cancel my AMA membership. Been paying for years, but have never needed roadside assistance until a few days ago. I stopped for coffee at the Orange Circle and came back out to the Bonneville, which chose that time to have a flat battery. I was in a hurry, and after I had no luck finding jumper cables among the sullen hipsters hanging around Urth and Starbucks, and no downward slope to get enough speed to bump start, I called AMA. They informed me that they donít provide jump start service but would be happy to tow my bike.

Really, rather send a flatbed than a jump box?

Anyone else ever try their roadside assistance?

I have, a few times:
Once b/c my Street Triple wouldn't start (bad crank position sensor) - got a tow from work to home (30 miles).
A couple of times for my daughter's car (wouldn't hold idle) - once from my house to our indy mechanic, then from his shop to the dealer (about 3 miles each time).
Once more b/c the Street Triple wouldn't start (new battery & no codes), 4 miles from my home to an indy shop.

While AMA might not send out someone specifically to jump the vehicle, often the tow truck driver will have cables and will try to jump it if the problem is just "it's not starting".
