What kind of gear do you have with you? I'm riding today... but I have gear to keep me warm/dry.

Just be uber-careful.

I'd see if anyone in the area drove in on a truck and you can tote that bad boy home.

if you need to, stash it in the garage at louisiana and clay

park up high on the 4th or 5th floor so no one can see it

you can ride out the entrance gate later (the one with no attendant) so you don't need to pay anything

Play it safe and you won't regret it later! Leave the bike at work and find a coworker to give you a ride home instead.

Leave the bike and catch a ride bro, your life is worth more than a motorcycle. That or take all back roads and stay off the highways.
