    While the skies were overcast and temps only in the mid 50's we headed out and had some fun

    No, there are very few reported cases of the virus here in Iowa but most employers have shut down and allowed their employees to work from home.   

    My neighbor and I only went riding and didn't stop at any convenience store or other areas so we figured it was reasonably safe to just ride around the country

    Iowa requested, and received a Federal Disaster Declaration from the President yesterday evening. I suspect that things will get much worse before they get better, even in relatively sparsely populated Iowa...  :431:

    Like the rest of the country and world effected, we are hoping that the disease slows down and allows for normal living in the coming weeks (or months)

    I hate to say it, but I don't think it will be over in a couple of weeks, let alone a couple of months. Sorry once again, regarding Mr. Trump wanting churches full for Easter. Either he knows something the worlds medical experts don't, or he has a direct line to the "gent upstairs".  :164: :164: :020: :020:

    Yes, it's a 2020 model with heated seats and grips...soooo jealous during cold weather.  My Trophy didn't come with it
