CYCLE DISTANCING - Still the best way to stay healthy and play your tunes!

In these bizarre times of social distancing and quarantine due to the virus which must not be named, I’d like to remind you that the best way to relieve stress, enjoy life to the max, and NOT catch the Corona virus (DAMN, I said it!), is to go for a ride on your motorcycle. I know that your favorite motorcycle ride nights have been canceled, as have all the motorcycle rallies, great and small across this country and the world. But there is no reason you can’t just throw your leg over your scooter, take the road less traveled, and enjoy an afternoon of nirvana thanks to the healing glory of motorcycling.

Look, gas stations are still open, the roads are clear of traffic, the skies are clear of pollution. There has, in fact, never been a better time to start up your bike and go for a day trip. Great comfort may be found in taking those old familiar roads or striking out for an entirely new experience. Load the AAA App on your phone and hit the road to adventure. You are laid off from work, you’re tired of playing board games, reading books, doing house chores and watching reruns… go for a damned ride!

Imagine you are cruising down a perfect stretch of road, zombie apocalypse be damned! All is right in your world. Now reach out and crank the tunes on your Steel Horse Audio motorcycle speaker system. Let’s hear all 900+ watts of that ST600 Platinum Edition System. Your road tunes have never sounded better through those chromed Kicker speakers. AND with a five-year warranty, you can ride and sing at the top of your lungs until the wheels fall off or you lose your voice, whichever comes first.

PLUS, look at it this way: this craziness will end! I know you can’t imagine it right now, but this shut down too shall end. As the nation warms and spring weather takes over, the virus will die. It hates heat! Know what that means to you?  This is the perfect year to finally go to Sturgis Bike Week in August. The Black Hills await you and what would be better than to join a half million of your best friends in Sturgis for the ultimate biker party? We can all wear “I Survived the Apocalypse” T-shirts, drink beer, watch exciting races by the Jackpine Gypsies, see Mount Rushmore. Doesn’t that sound like the best way to thumb our noses at this nasty bug?

Alright then, it is settled. I will meet you all out at the Buffalo Chip this August to celebrate life, biker style. Now put on your boots, your jacket and gloves, crank up your Steel Horse Audio sound system and ride!
