What could go wrong?

Hundreds of thousands of bikers coming from all over the United States to crowd together for what is essentially a big party (Sturgis, Aug. 16) and then go home:

“After considering many options, the City Council voted in favor of moving forward with preparations for the large influx of tourists and participants coming to enjoy the Black Hills, with a focus on preserving the safety of our residents,” the release reads. “Attendees will be asked to be respectful of the community concerns by practicing social distancing and taking personal responsibility for their health by following CDC guidelines.”

The release describes “enhanced safety and sanitization protocols” that will be present at the event, including public hand-sanitizing stations in Sturgis’ downtown as well as nightly sidewalk cleanings. All vendors must wear masks and post signage requesting customers to socially distance, though masks are not required for the customers themselves.

They break up massive house parties already, with 500+ people. No idea how Sturgis will turn out. But I know it won't be good. I bet lots of used Harleys will hit the market in the spring from Estate sales.

One difference is that those tend to be young folks. Sturgis attracts a whole lotta middle-aged wannabes.

Both are bad; Sturgis may just be deadly sooner.

Seems like Sturgis is still planning to go on as planned. Just crazy.

I do not even want to see all of the motorcycle traffic through MN because of it.

Yup, my thoughts exactly. That event is very popular with Vietnam vets, who are now in their 70s. If can probably be fairly low risk if the bikers stay outdoors, distance, & mask, but easier said than done at an event for 250K people.

South Dakota’s current governor strikes me as a reincarnation of Michelle Bachmann. She has been running ads in Minnesota lately, trying to attract businesses to SD, saying “we won’t close you down or impair your freedoms”.

...in the middle of a pandemic. Nice.
