    I hope everyone is working on being safe.

    We Trophy owners are an international family and I want to make sure that everyone is taking the proper precautions.

    Stay safe!

    I've just washed my hands for the regulation two singing of the Happy Birthday song. Can't be too careful.  :164: :164:

    The bad thing is most of us that ride Trophies are  of an older generation as I am.

    Iím one with an underlying condition, so Iím not gonna take any chances.

    I will never slow down so I will never grow Old.  :147:

    My local Store has sold out of the Alcohol wipes.

    Apparently itís the alcohol that kills off the Virus germs
    so last night I took no chances and self medicated
    with plenty of alcohol - Internally  :821:

    Probably a good idea at this point to establish another section called "Room 101" where we can all moan!  :001:

    The UK Government have a long history of getting it seriously wrong, we only need to look back at Bacon, Eggs and Potatoes which were all bad for us but later proven to be the opposite.
    I compare life to Oxygen - too little and you'll die / too much and you'll die!

    The so-called Government experts always leave it until the Horse has bolted and here's yet another prime example. :233:

    I will however agree with face mask advice, they offer no protection UNLESS you have no beard or stubble and you apply a solution of anti-bacterial to the outer surface of the mask [I use Dettol].

    In addition to washing hands, ensure hands are completely dry before going out into cold weather or you'll create more skin problems.

    Prevention is the key so keeping a pair of Nitrile gloves in your pocket for money etc. might help...
    To test a man's character, give him (horse) power.

    The virus is naturally greasy. That's why regular soap works better than alcohol. Wash your hands (or more) after each touch. Stay in the house and postpone any meeting that isn't immediately needed.
    In my profession (optometrist) I have a lot of contact with my clients, that's why I limit my work to emergency situations.
    I am independent so I don't know how it will turn out for us.
    We really need to be careful and think carefully about every action!

    Some of us may be at an "at risk" age, but as bikers, we have the distinct advantage of being able to keep our lids on! Not only does it stop us from spreading our germs and protect us from others', it also prevents us from touching the nose and mouth.

    This is serious business, so stay as safe as your living allows......

    Cecilt, I don't know whether I could do wearing my helmet "continuously". I can see the benefits though.
                             No need to shave.
                               Or have haircuts.
         
       I'm sure there are plenty of other advantages. I just can't think of any at the moment.  :008: :008: :008:
