As of tomorrow, Illinois residents will be required by edict of the Governor to "shelter in place". You are allowed to leave your home to go to the grocery store, the gas station and some other locations, as well as to exercise outside. I'm not sure if riding a motorcycle will count as "exercise". But possibly, if I decide to go to the supermarket, I could take the long route and if stopped legitimately say that riding less than about 10 miles will not get the engine temp up to where it needs to be to evaporate the water in the system, and therefore I had to take this longer route. This thread is not a joke, I'm totally serious. After waiting through this long winter, I would hate to have to still not ride even when the weather is good because of this Covid-19. Riding a motorcycle, which is certainly keeping me safely distant from other people, is certainly nothing risky regarding this virus for either myself or others, but I wonder if overzealous law enforcement will give me a hard time if I go for a short ride. I know California is in the same situation, and possibly some other states.
