I thought today, May 15th, was ride-to-work day. Hmmm.

No, today was "Ride the Boss' Secretary at Work Day".

Sh!t. I missed that one. Good thing, too, because I just had sexual harrassment training yesterday. No kidding.

How did you do with the harassment training. Get to pinch an ass or two?

Well I rode to work every freeking day for 30 years, in rain, sleet, snow, tornados and thunderstorms. On everything from Cushman Eagles to Yamaha XS1100 Vision tour rigs...

And in all that time I never got nailed by a car. Not even close.

Now I see ads on the tube to "Ride your bicycle to work"...ha right.

Maybe in one of those Honda ads from the 70's where everything is all nice and clean and safe.

Good luck all you motorcycle commuters, I tost you.

If so, what's your job? You work on aircraft? I was a seat mechanic on an F4J once long ago, in a land far away...

Of course the only wimmin we had were nurses, or shore-bound storkeepers and stuff. No girls on a boat (that might have been fun come to think of it).
