Best trip to work so far (Honda).
I would ride my motorcycle to ESCAPE air conditioning. I rarely use it in the car ,
and then only on the highway , if She needed it.
Lady Godiva rode a horse. Your post makes it sound that you rode the motorcycle similarly clad.

Yes. And yes, there was alcohol and money involved.
I’ve always heard, mixing alcohol & motorcycles are suicides waiting to happen. But, I never heard that alcohol & motorcycles cause orgies to break-out.
Today , 73 deg F in Naperville.
35.1 miles , fcd = 70.2 x .943 = 66.2 MPG.
Tank is at 581.7 miles, fcd = 73.5 x .943 = 69.3 MPG.
On track to have a 700 mile tank. But I probably won't attempt it because
that would mean wasting some time and gasoline doing extra miles
after work Thursday. I have activities and errands planned after work
for the next three days , but none of them add extra miles.
So it may only be 675 miles.

Today , 73 deg F in Naperville. I had to take an alternate route
because I ( finally) had to fill up the Honda.
The low fuel light took me by surprise , and at 4:00 AM I don't
have time to look at the owner's manual to see how much fuel
they want you to believe is left. But I do know that a round trip is
about 68-70 miles , and I really wanted to fill at the same place ,same pump.

From the Coronavirus thread:
India’s coronavirus tragedies may be kicking up, in a very bad reversal. After India passed many, many countries, all the way to 3rd place in cases, 2nd place Brazil’s “jarhead poison-arrow” adamantly extended its cases AND deaths over India. However, the past few days FIRST marked India’s very slight gain on Brazil in cases. Today, India made STRONG GAINS on Brazil, IN BOTH, CASES & DEATHS. For those who care about the Coronavirus World Tragedy, go to the Coronavirus thread for India’s blasting reversal gain on Brazil(post 288) & other comparative changes occurring among the nations. India may still be bending its severely steep curve upward, even as its poorest & most populated cities have no way to control coronavirus.
Today , 71 deg F in Naperville.
35.1 miles, fcd = 69.8 x .943 = 65.8 MPG.
Tank is at 133.5 miles , fcd = 74.2 x .943 = 70.0 MPG.
I'm not one of them. Don't you have another place to post your depressing stuff ?
I was much more ccp coronavirus depressed than you. A fellow I knew, had a childhood fear of spiders. His method to combat his fear was to know a lot about spiders. I always liked that approach to problems.
As for your question, yeah.... much detail is in the coronavirus thread. I post to this thread only on the most shifting traumas of ccp coronavirus. It’s enlightening to know that countries that trust communist china(always small letters), or don’t trust science, &/or have the worst egotistical dictators & wannabe dictators, have raging ccp coronavirus problems.
