Lead From the Back:

"Remember the Good Parts"

by Dave Stauffer

First, I express my sympathies for anyone who has had close friends or family members who have been impacted by this virus.

Eventually, we will come out of this and perhaps overlook the good that has evolved during this time of social distancing and stay-at-home requirements. I am not suggesting the good outweighs the bad, but we can choose to focus on the good rather than what we cannot control.

Positive outcomes have grown out of dealing with this pandemic and below is my personal list of observations:

These past few months have been a humbling time. Unbelievably, two months ago, the whole world was nearly incapacitated. In our arrogance we believe we can control our lives when the reality is that we can only control our reaction to what happens to us.

Be safe. We continue to plan for a riding season if we are given the opportunity.

We are your family. Please let us know how you are doing.

Take time to appreciate the good.

See you on the road sometime in the future. Be Safe

Dave Stauffer
