Unnecessary journeys banned ?

So, what harm can it do if I go out for a ride, by myself, not stopping off anywhere en route, not even going to a fuel station for that matter ?? I'd use pay at pump in that case anyway.

I suppose if I fell off it would be an added burden on the NHS, but then, I reckon I already am, potentially.

Sorry, but I'm not going to waste this brief spell of decent weather, first ride on the Hornet this year today.

I guess that in the absence of martial law and official curfews* it all comes down to personal judgement - we are adults and if you judge the risk/reward ratio to be justifiable then you are free to excersise that judgement as things stand. Hopefully the current changes in behaviour and shutdowns will be enough to start flattening the curve of this thing so that draconian, legally enforceable restrictions won't be needed.

The question of going out for a ride or not is theoretical for me as my Hornet project isn't finished and my CBR needs some work doing on the cylinder head! I guess you could say that my timing is impeccable as the first time I've been bikeless for over 20 years coincides with a national lockdown!

*However 300 pages of emergency legislation is passing through parliament right now.

Conflicting opinions in todays MCN.

Editorial taking a rather sanctimonius line, not going to ride his bike purely for pleasure, only if strictly necessary. Thought that was what cars were for ….

On the letters page, star letter from a 76 year old, who is going to practice isolation measures by going for a ride on his ZX9r.

That's inspiring. I sincerely hope that I'll be riding a big Kawasaki or similar if I ever get to that age :D

THE GREAT CHINESE STAGE

1. Create a virus and the antidote.

2. Spread the virus.

3. A demonstration of efficiency, building hospitals in a few days. After all, you were already prepared, with the projects, ordering the equipment, hiring the labor, the water and sewage network, the prefabricated building materials and stocked in an impressive volume.

4. Cause chaos in the world, starting with Europe.

5. Quickly plaster the economy of dozens of countries.

6. Stop production lines in factories in other countries.

7. Cause stock markets to fall and buy companies at a bargain price.

8. Quickly control the epidemic in your country. After all, you were already prepared.

9. Lower the price of commodities, including the price of oil you buy on a large scale.

10. Get back to producing quickly while the world is at a standstill. Buy what you negotiated cheaply in the crisis and sell more expensive what is lacking in countries that have paralyzed their industries.
After all, you read more Confucius than Karl Marx.

*PS: Before laughing, read the book by Chinese colonels Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui, from 1999, “Unrestricted Warfare: China’s master plan to destroy America”, on Amazon, then we talk. It's all there.*

Worth pondering..

Just Think about this...

How come Russia & North Korea are totally free of Covid- 19? Because they are staunch ally of China. Not a single case reported from this 2 countries. On the other hand South Korea / United Kingdom / Italy / Spain and Asia are severely hit. How come Wuhan is suddenly free from the deadly virus?
China will say that their drastic initial measures they took was very stern and Wuhan was locked down to contain the spread to other areas. I am sure they are using the Anti dode of the virus.
Why Beijing was not hit? Why only Wuhan? Kind of interesting to ponder upon.. right? Well ..Wuhan is open for business now. America and all the above mentioned countries are devastated financially. Soon American economy will collapse as planned by China. China knows it CANNOT defeat America militarily as USA is at present THE MOST POWERFUL country in the world. So use the virus...to cripple the economy and paralyse the nation and its Defense capabilities.

I'm sure Nancy Pelosi got a part in this. . to topple Trump. Lately President Trump was always telling of how GREAT American economy was improving in all fronts. The only way to destroy his vision of making AMERICA GREAT AGAIN is to create an economic havoc. Nancy Pelosi was unable to bring down Trump thru impeachment. ....so work along with China to destroy Trump by releasing a virus. Wuhan,s epidemic was a showcase. At the peak of the virus epidemic. ..

China's President Xi Jinping...just wore a simple RM1 facemask to visit those effected areas. As President he should be covered from head to toe.....but it was not the case. He was already injected to resist any harm from the virus....that means a cure was already in place before the virus was released.

Some may ask....Bill Gates already predicted the outbreak in 2015...so the chinese agenda cannot be true. The answer is. ..YES...Bill Gates did predict. .but that prediction is based on a genuine virus outbreak. Now China is also telling that the virus was predicted well in advance. ....so that its agenda would play along well to match that prediction.

China,s vision is to control the World economy by buying up stocks now from countries facing the brink of severe ECONOMIC COLLAPSE. Later China will announce that their Medical Researchers have found a cure to destroy the virus. Now China have other countries stocks in their arsenal and these countries will soon be slave to their master...CHINA.

Just Think about it ...

The Doctor Who declared this virus was also Silenced by the Chinese Authorities...

Thoughts??
