Ride Your Motorcycle Week starts today and Australian riders nationwide are revving up and taking part in the annual initiative prompting motorcyclists to shake off lockdown and get back on the bike.

Took the long way home and arrived a little later than planned? It's only natural this might annoy the bosses, partners, friends and family members in your life.
With this note, you can keep the good times rolling without having to worry about keeping anyone waiting. If they seemed stressed, recommend they jump on a bike and get a taste of what they're missing!

The motorcycle industry’s annual week of two-wheeled commuting, Ride Your Motorcycle to Work Week, will take a different approach in 2020 – and there’s just a month to go before Aussie riders raise their kickstands.
