We all love to ride, but sometimes simply wanting to go for a ride just isn’t enough to get us moving. So, on those times when you need that little extra push to get out the door and onto two wheels (or when you need a way to get past the spouse’s radar), we’ve assembled some ruses that just might work for you. While these excuses range from the painfully obvious to somewhat obscure, we think that any rider should be able to crank out an endless list on demand once the pump is primed. Consider this an essential survival skill for motorcyclists to master.
