Well its not a question or comment that that falls under the General Forum
General Yamaha Discussion
Post general Yamaha 4 Stroke questions not specific to any model

The thread is still alive just in a different area.
If posts start to get all Doom and Gloom then we will have to see if it survives.
Any uneducated shoot from the hip comments will be deleted.

I encourage all TY'ers to keep logging on. Post some encouragement here in the Lounge.
A funny meme, video, pic or story. Lord knows I need to good chuckle after reading the news every morning.
Stay safe.
I was asking about Yamahas sled production. Soooo...

But no worries. I wasn't complaining that it got moved.
I was just assuming that many of the suppliers to the sled manufacturers were being shut down, which is happening.

To your point, I am hopeful that the ventilator shortage gets reversed and everyone gets the care that they need.
Thank you to all of the nurses and doctors on the front lines.

You have to sit back and look at big picture , one the doctors beating down the worst case senerio, and people making money by blowing this way out of proportion and striking fear into the general population. Then think how many people first hand do you know that have this virus ??? Me none ....

Yea this is getting a bit ridiculous. People with underlying health conditions should be quarantined not the entire public. Everyone is so scared. Id say about 50 percent of the population are killing themselves from smoking and poor eating habits and do nothing, so there’s that. Look around this country and you’ll see droves of people who will be lucky too make it past 65 years of age, all self inflicted.

Mototown. Not sure who you think is making money on this ???? have you looked at the economy lately. You might have an underlying health problem(s) and you might not even know about it and you think you're healthy. I'm not panicking i'm just thinking of others besides myself.

i can't say much more since i have someone in the medical field on the front lines. Just stay home unless getting your essentials, don't panic , that's all we need to do.

Oh, when getting your essentials please don't take your whole family into the store. LOL

Stay healthy everyone. :Rockon:

Unfortunately, I know 2 people with COVID-19 and 1 passed away on Monday. Neither of which traveled outside the Central NY area. So yeah, this is real.

Polaris is shuttering 5 plants for a week in the US and 2 others outside the US will be impacted.

My company is considered "essential" in NY and we are seeing impacts now with many households across the US refusing deliveries of items they ordered.

Stay safe everyone and as sgauthier wrote, don't bring your whole family to the grocery store!

Sadly... some people have not taken this virus seriously and it shows in the number of cases spreading, this virus has not ramped up enough to these people and to some that means its just blown out of proportion, well.... just give it a month! you will soon see what chaos is all about.

Want funny? I was looking at alternatives to toilet paper and this came up:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085G3PMB3/?tag=elightbars-20

Although it's showing as currently unavailable, it's funny that Amazon has let this one stay.
Several years ago I was staying at the Aria in Vegas in a penthouse suite, my daughter who is professional gambler got us the room. There was a Bidet and after using this handy bathroom tool got me hooked, returned home and ordered one for a measly 500 bucks. With a warm seat, warm water front rise for girls and butt washer for the rest along with the dryer function that ended my dependency of TP (so there:die TP hoarders) at home it was worth it.
They are now half that at Costco. Don't laugh or judge until you try one.LaLaLa

I'll take that bet. One of us will be eating crow.

This entire situation isn't about a damn virus. It's something deeper, shadier, and more sinister going on & the virus is a convenient distraction while the sheep lose their minds over it.

I'm NOT saying the virus isn't real, but it's an all too easy cloak for something else.

And any idiot who thinks socialism and bigger government is a good thing I hope you're enjoying your free trial offering at the moment.

Well it does need power, heated seat and valves to redirect water to front or back nozzle and the blow dryer. We are talking TP shortage and if power goes out my whole house generator takes over from there.

Gotta love this^^^^^^^
Yea it’s a conspiracy........ No actually it’s a real threat, the death rate in Italy is over 10 percent. If the government doesn’t react, they will be blamed, they surely don’t want that. I do think it’s a little excessive imo with stay at home orders tho.

Put yourself in a position of being someone with underlying heath issues, now what do you think we should do?

Somebody developed the virus theory’s are my favorite, yea sure they did. Think before you speak.

Viruses have been mutating for thousands of years, I suppose the Spanish flu, Black plague and all the other countless viruses were manufactured by evil people too? Fu€k they didn’t even know about viruses back then!

Anyone with half a brain wouldn’t develop a virus and release it into the community because it would end up killing their own people and possibly them also.

Yes... maybe something deeper and sinister is going on.. kinda slide off the hand deal, everybody focus on this and we can get what we want done right under everybody's noses, Hmm... I wonder if North Korea is in on it. just saying
