    We really need to get past thinking about age groups with this virus. In one way or another humans across all ages are affected by C-19, worst case scenario by getting sick and dying, best case is they survive and are going to have to figure out how to build a shattered global economy.

    Going to Sturgis this year is just a monumentally stupid thing to do.

    Exactly, 35 yr old motorcyclist goes to ER and resources are delayed or not there for him because of the virus. It’s one health care system.

Riding down A1A is one of the best parts of Bike Week.

    The group that I know that headed there are all over 50, doing well, and drove out in their big trucks, towing big campers, with bike garages as part of the camper. Trump signs are already set up at their camp.

    That's a Darwin / Trump thing I can't wrap my head around

    No iron butts on those guys? Maybe it is just me, but if I were going to a bike rally in such a beautiful country, I would want to ride there.

    People on bikes can be weird. I was at the Daytona Salt Flats on a ride from Seattle to Denver. A car with Quebec plates pulled up and parked with a Harley on a trailer. A man got out, wheeled the bike off the trailer, moved it a few feet and climbed aboard. His companions took photos and then the bike went back on the trailer and off they went down the highway.

    Towing the camper does give them a place to stay while they are there. Plus itís hard to carry all your trump paraphernalia on a bike. Plus the karaoke machine, stage, tents, beer, beer, beer, more beer, and some extra beer.
