Ride to Work Day - July 18th
Before I could drive a car I knew I wanted to ride a motorcycle. When I was about 15 I started getting motorcycle magazines on a regular basis. For the next two years I'd look at those magazines and dream about owning a bike. Then it happened - when I was 17 I took a basic motorcycle class then bought a 1982 Suzuki GS450LX. If you've read my articles before you might know that I rode that thing all over the place. I had to be at work at 6 AM and work was about a half hour away. I'd leave extra early so I could take the long way through Schenley Park. When I got off work at 2 PM, I'd ride home, change my clothes, then go for a ride before dinner. There wasn't a time when I didn't want to ride my bike.

A Day to Ride
by Robert Rasor
Some people do it every day. Some folks just do it once in a while when the spirit moves them. Others hardly ever do it. You know what I'm talking about: riding your motorcycle to work. Here at the AMA we have all types. Some of the people on our staff ride their bikes all year long. Through rain, sleet and cold of winter, they're nearly as dutiful as the Postal Service. Only the nastiest snow or ice seems to stop them.

Ah-riding. We know it's a great way to unwind after a hectic work day. But who says you can't combine a little pleasure with work? Isn't that what the "Live to Ride, Ride to Live" credo is all about? Some of you already know the key to getting your daily Harley fix involves one simple activity: commuting on your motorcycle.

ROAD RIDER/October 1992
Postscript: Ride to Work Day, 1992
July 22, 1992, was a perfect motorcycling day in New Hampshire: it was cloudy and rainy in Oregon, cool In Illinois, balmy in Florida and warm and sunny in British Columbia. No one knows how many people rode motorcycles to work that day, but some did.

Variety isn't just the spice of life, it's the best guarantee of survival. This is true in evolution and also true in automobility. That's why the best thing about today's automotive market is its variety. Different types of vehicles span the spectrum, from bare-knuckles sports cars to mega-trucks in an astonishing array of subtypes of considerable quantity and unprecedented quality. As it always has, through many don't perceive it, this is spectrum of vehicular variety includes motorcycles, which, like our cars, have improved in performance and reliability enormously since the 1980s. Having been the editor-at-large of Cycle World, my view of motorcycles is inevitably more inclusive than those who dislike them, but many car enthusiasts also ride, including a big chunk of AW's readership. Among those is Andy Goldfine, CEO of Aerostich, the company he founded almost two decades ago to make radically innovative motorcyclists' clothing. Andy's tastes in cars run to Audi Quattros and Saab Viggens, but he believes passionately that many of America's road congestion problems can be solved by using motorcycles as transportation and not just recreation. He also thinks a lot of social ills derive from too much reliance on automobiles, which is why he thinks riding a motorcycle ought to be understood and not just as efficient transportation but as what he calls a "social good". Putting his money where is mouth is, Andy sponsors an event gathering considerable momentum among motorcylists; "Ride-to Work Day", scheduled for the third Wednesday in July (the 18th this year). He's established an organization to assist the effort, which includes promoting a clever slogan: "Ride to Work, Work to Ride".
