The #StayAtHome orders all over the world have now prompted people to figure out how to do in-home workouts, many businesses are now doing home delivery that were not before and there are conferences and other things being done online as well. AMERiders has the story.
We don’t know about you but some of us here at AMERiders have been getting cabin fever, we try to keep you entertained each week which we hope we are doing just that. Ideas to help you besides reading our great content, and tinkering on your ride can be some of the ideas that we found that others have started doing.
For those of us who are itching to move, are missing their gym routine, or are simply open to getting their grove on #StayAtHome has prompted us to figure out how to work out from home.
If this isn’t for you, there’s no judgment, only love. Ducati seems to agree with this and in the first episode of its new YouTube series Ducati Caffé, one of the test riders shows us a few moves we can all do from home.
While riding is a therapy in itself, if you choose to avoid taking risks during quarantine, then a little living room training session is the next best thing you can do for your head. Get your sneakers on and check out the routine that test rider Andrea Rossi has prepared specifically for motorcyclists to stay in riding shape. The best part is that he shows how to adapt the exercises to your level of fitness. Nobody gets left behind!
He explains that this little workout is designed to work all the muscles you use while you ride. From pushups to squats, he also breaks down what muscles each exercise focuses on and how these muscles work while you’re riding.
If you’ve worked through your entire list of chores, have caught up on all your shows, have finished all your books, and are wondering what to do next, you can always add this to your list. There’s nothing like a random set of push-ups to give you a boost! Trust us, we’re almost like doctors but with fewer (no) PhDs and more bikes.
#StayAtHome makes Bike Delivery Possible
Are you stuck at home going out of your mind because you’re under quarantine? If you’re a rider, you’re probably dreaming about life behind bars out on the open road instead of what feels like life behind the prison bars of your home while you wait for everything to blow over. At the very least, you’d probably like to take a trip to the dealership to contemplate a new ride. Well, thanks to #StayAtHome now you can. Sort of.
Indian Motorcycle just announced its new Click.Deliver.Ride program. With CDR, you just open a web browser (either on a computer or your mobile device) to design your bike and wait for delivery.
Okay, it’s not quite that simple, but almost. Being able to design your new ride is nothing new. Until now, though, buying a bike online still meant going to the dealership in person and meeting with a salesperson to fill out the paperwork. Don’t forget, before you could even go to the dealership, you’d have to find someone to take you there. Assuming you wanted to ride your new bike home, that is.
With CDR, you can do all the paperwork from the comfort of your couch, either online or over the phone. Once that’s done, the dealer will deliver your new ride direct to your driveway. You can probably even ask them to leave the keys under the doormat for maximum self-isolation.
There are some caveats though. Indian says that this is a limited time offer. We’re guessing that means it’s probably only available until the pandemic ends. Also, it’s not available where laws prohibit it.
Still, as long as it’s legal and you don’t snooze on this offer, you can get your new ride without ever having to meet another person face-to-face. Just a few clicks on your phone and you’ll be social-distancing like a pro in no time.
2020 Women’s Conference Online
Are you a badass woman who rides? Do you want to connect with other badass women who ride? We may all be #StayAtHome more than usual due to the coronavirus crisis, but the Women’s Motorcycling Conference Online is coming up fast. It’s the perfect way to get some much-needed interaction with other women riders while we’re all planning our next rides.
The first-ever virtual conference will take place on Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, 2020. It starts at 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time and will feature presentations from all kinds of rad women throughout the U.S. motorcycling landscape. From Joanne Donn of GearChic to Porsche Taylor of Black Girls Ride Magazine, to 2019 Iron Butt Rally winner Wendy Crockett, to Tricia Szulewski of Women Riders Now, there are a ton of cool people and presentations to get you thinking and talking.
There are a wide range of presentation topics, including Building Confidence After A Crash, Reinventing Your Extremes: Long Distance Tips and Tricks, Revvolutionary: Using Your Motorcycle as a Vehicle for Change, and much more. As with live and in-person conferences, you can attend as many or as few of the sessions as you like.
Registration is currently open, and is available at two levels: regular registration to attend the virtual conference live, or you can also choose a Conference + Recordings ticket. That gets you video recordings of every conference session after the event, so you can go back and relive things you want to see again. It’s also a nice option if an emergency comes up and you have to miss a session (or part of a session) that you were really looking forward to attending.
Regular registration costs $21.99 including a service fee, while the conference + recordings option costs $58.74 including a service fee. All ticketing is done through Brown Paper Tickets, which accepts major credit cards as well as PayPal. All sales are final, according to the website.
