Lol legit I will take the word of epidemiologists who were initially wrong and corrected themselves rather than some rando antiintellectual BARFers and anecdotal stories.

The anti maskers/anti shelter people were wrong about it in the 1st stages and they'll be wrong about Sturgis as well.

If the disease did in fact "ride" it would no doubt be on a Harley.....with a pudding bowl helmet adorned with a fake DOT sticker.

You guys should all re-read this thread and pay attention to the passive aggressive insults and shaming/finger pointing.

Sturgis is happening, and it will be what it is. It's a bummer if you're in the camp that doesn't like it, and it's awesome if you're in the camp that likes it.

The two viewpoints are pretty well established at this point, and attempting to influence either one seems to be a fool's errand. We'd all be happier if we thought about that before speaking/posting/interacting.

So it's pretty much all bark and no bite, except for the 1%. Sounds about right. Roll on Sturgis.

This ^^^

I have been wanting to do this for years - one of my bucket list rides

Maybe I would have been there for a couple of days or just a hour - who knows

But 2020 is a bust for most of my riding plans

Well, it seems like some attendees are indeed taking the Virus into consideration with their planning.

Quote:
STURGIS, S.D. (KOTA) - "The 80th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally doesn’t officially start until Friday but it seems bikers and tourists are showing up early.

“We planned it,” said Tammy Owens and Jim Kalbflesh, from West Virginia.

“We hit Badlands on the way and now we’re going to go over to Deadwood and visit there, Mount Rushmore tomorrow and then head to Wyoming.

We wanted to check this place out, get some T-shirts, make sure that we’re here before the crowd gets here.”

Early visitors also say it’s a chance to enjoy but stay away from the expected big crowds as the pandemic lingers."

I intended for my insults to be aggressive/aggressive.
I must be slipping. I'll work on it.

If I was a resident I'd certainly leave town.

Quote:
Some 60% of Sturgis residents, when surveyed, told the city they'd rather the event not proceed as scheduled this year.

"I fear that I will live in my house for a month after this if not six months after this until it all clears," said the resident, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in fear of retaliation.

"There are people from other states coming here that have had massive breakouts in their cities and in their states and they're coming here and they're traveling here in RVs," the resident said. "You don't think they're going to bring it here to the state and get local residents infected?"

The resident told CNN they have several family members, most of whom are older, that live in the city as well.

"My grandma is absolutely terrified because she has diabetes and is in her 80s and has lupus," they said. "If she gets it, it's a death sentence."

This.
I understand my posts won't change anyone's mind but I can still be outraged by the selfish ignorance displayed here as well as across this country.
"Your 'right' to be reckless ends where my 'right' to stay alive begins."
I will never understand those choosing to pick a fight and argue with science.

Don't disagree at all. Some are going to challenge others with differing opinions. Throwing out an opinion is all good. Attacking ones character because of theirs kind of sucks, but the internet makes that so easy and in some cases fun?? I suppose for those that do it.
