    Without going into details why, I haven’t worked in 2 years... still have the truck and active numbers.

    When the issue that is keeping me home resolves what would you do.....I obviously don’t really have to work I’m 62....

    1st I’ve got 3 current motocross bikes and enclosed trailer, do I hit the road for a year Going to all the tracks I’ve always read about... riding FL in the winter , SoCal and all the National tracks...probably need a RV

    2nd go back to work over the road. Would need a new tractor with sleeper and a trailer. (My least favorite I believe)

    3rd Become gentleman farmer here at home. Get a new John Deere to keep me busy. Mowing, thinning out the woods , plowing the snow.... I pay people to do this now. And maybe run my truck locally pulling a dump trailer for fun.....

    With covid staying home has a certain appeal....

    No question... 1. :D

    You can do 3 when you're home... or after you've crippled yourself doing 1. ;)

    And if the gentleman farmer idea doesn’t work out, you could become always become a giggolo.

    Not even close. Put the truck to work whenever someone makes it worth coming out of hibernation, take care of the home front, take care of the place. No brainer.

    I chose number 3 but mostly because I’ve done the first two.

    Reading your post you should do at least number 1 once in your life. I could tell you about several must ride places in Florida. I’m a huge SX/MX fan.

    Number two just keep your old equipment and work when the money is right and you want to.

    Number 3 is your fall back when not doing 1 and 2.

    FYI... didn’t know these things about you. Welcome to the TTR MC. Your IN! ;)

    Number 3 for sure. Build you a track on the farm and you can invite all your forum friends over to ride..... hint hint.
