Anyone going to Sturgis on a sports bike next month?

Thinking about it, but not sure because I don't know anyone to go with.

SD never quarantined anybody. Was always open for business.

There was no COVID Spike at Daytona this year and tens off thousands went.

All the quarantine is nonsense IMHO.

I was in Miami during that same week, March 6th through the 15th and there was virtually NO infections in Miami, even ate at a restaurant, no real social distancing, not much fear.

Around the end of bike week there were about 300 reported cases total in Florida.

Now there are 451,000.

Nice try though.

Given the above attitude, does anybody question why the U.S. is in the mess it's in?

I'm pretty sure Daytona is in Florida, and Florida hasn't been doing as well as they could with the infection rates.

A Tulsa rally result today:

Herman Cain, ex-presidential candidate who refused to wear mask, dies after COVID-19 diagnosis

Quote:
(Reuters) - Herman Cain, a former Republican presidential candidate and supporter of President Donald Trump who pointedly refused to wear a mask during the coronavirus pandemic, has died after contracting COVID-19, his website said on Thursday.

Cain, 74, learned of his diagnosis on June 29, nine days after attending a Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he and many others crowded together without wearing face masks aimed at preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus.

He spent most of July in an Atlanta-area hospital.

Then there's this scientist's report which was particularly interesting:
