This is not a smart idea at all. There are bands listed to perform there, one of them is Molly Hatchet - notorious for their 1979 hit 'Flirtin' With Didsaster'. That is what everyone there is doing. they need to nix this and then do it next summer.

They peddled T-shirts marked "I survived corona" or "God, guns and Trump" or bearing a photo montage of the president wearing a leather jacket and making an obscene gesture.

"We're excited for visitors to see what our great state has to offer!" tweeted Kristi Noem, a Republican and strong Trump supporter.

Monkey see, monkey do.

strangely, no Antifa anywhere close by Sturgis.

I can consider this "could be a superspreader" narrative once protests are described that way in advance of them happening.

Really bad. America is so hopeless.

I can consider this "could be a superspreader" narrative once protests are described that way in advance of them happening.

It doesn't matter what you consider though, does it.

This will spread the disease: it will bring it into the town, it will be passed among people, and they will take it elsewhere in the country.

This is an 11-minute video taken on one of the nights of the rally.

Out of all the people in the video, probably hundreds, I didn't see one person wearing a mask. Not one. I mean, I realize that masks are un-American and strictly for pussies, but that's incredible. And there seem to be no other precautions taken at all.

Some of these people are not only going to catch it, they're going to spread it. Because they just don't care.

America is so hopeless.

No worries, Joe Biden is coming to save us!

I wouldn’t kindly ask a biker to wear a mask. In fact, I would be more scared to meet a biker wearing a mask!

Try not to take things casually into one's own hands without any careful thought. Do not act rashly.

Beware of the asymptomatic virus carriers..

It'll be a buyer's market on gently used motorcycles this Autumn.

A lot of used Harleys and Indians will be for sale.

Tip. If in a difficult situation with a bicker... Kick them first between the legs and then hit them under the chin quickly thereafter if they're of your height. Otherwise, a good stab at their knees and then running may help. Though in general, best avoid them, and call the Police immediately if they appear to be threatening you... be it even by their presence!

Actually the whole event at this point in time is utterly obscene.

What is a bicker?
