Because that's not exercise, it's making up a pathetic excuse to leave your house and go for a ride on your motorbike. Seriously, if you want exercise do 100 star jumps in your loungeroom.

Riding a motorcycle for exercise was specifically allowed in NSW during the first lockdown. Exercise takes many forms. Physical exercise like star jumps is one sort but mental exercise is equally if not more important. If you are allowed to stroll around the local park or streets in a leisurely fashion that does nothing for your physical fitness but does refresh you mentally then doing basically the same thing on a motorcycle is equally valid. I get much more mental refreshment from a 20 minute motorcycle ride than I do from a two hour walk around the neighbourhood.

And not only that. Riding my bike I don't meet hundred (potentially infected) people like I would walking in my neighbourhood.

Not only in NSW, also in Vic! (Lockdown #1!)

Let's see how the next 6 weeks pan out

Being in lockdown may not be that bad. For those on Facebook.
