    The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is an American motorcycle rally held annually in Sturgis, South Dakota, for ten days usually starting the first Friday in August. In 2015 the city of Sturgis officially expanded the dates to have the rally start on the Friday before the first full week of August and end on the second Sunday. In 2016, Sturgis City Council passed a resolution to begin the Rally on the first Friday in August every year. It was begun in 1938 by a group of Indian Motorcycle riders and was originally held for stunts and races. Attendance has historically been around 500,000 people, reaching a high of over 700,000 in 2015. The event generates around $800 million in revenue

    Ignoring the virus, more than 250,000 people are expected to show up next week to the Sturgis, South Dakota, motorcycle rally, which business leaders pressured the City Council to hold despite the objections of more than 60% of Sturgis residents, who fear their town will become a hot spot. The rally this year will run from August 7 through August 16.

    Dr. Deborah Birx, the doctor advising the White House on the coronavirus. She warns that we are entering a “new phase” of the pandemic, when the virus is everywhere and is spreading at such a pace that we could see more than 300,000 deaths by the end of the year. On Saturday, the national daily death toll from Covid-19 reached 1,198, exceeding 1000 for the sixth day in a row.

    It's impossible to predict how many people will catch the virus in Sturgis, but the event is guaranteed to create spikes in large parts of the country, simply due to the fact that attendees come from all over the country.

    One of the groups that will be in attendance is Bikers for Trump, an organization that has an estimated 30,000 members. Starting in April of 2016, founder Chris Cox decided that his 30,000-member group, “Bikers for Trump,” would no longer be just a support organization focused primarily on holding independent rallies for the Republican front-runner. It would transform into a volunteer security force, patrolling Trump’s events to identify protesters for paid security and police, forming barriers to protect Trump supporters, and playing backup to the cops as they removed unwanted attendees from the campaign’s rallies.

    Bikers for Trump became a protective force, and it’s not alone. Another group, Lions of Trump, popped up online after Chicago to scour social media for likely protesters and expose them. Its website prominently quotes the Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. At a Trump rally in Wisconsin in late March, a local Tea Party activist arrived several hours early and assisted a campaign security consultants in identifying area progressive activists, who were then removed. And Citizens for Trump, an all-purpose grassroots support group, has deployed a team scouring social media for death threats to Trump, while a handful of its members tour the country on the lookout for protesters at rallies.

    While security experts warn that untrained vigilante groups could cause more harm than good, and even expose a candidate to charges of negligence in the case of violence, Trump’s campaign and paid consultants are doing little to discourage Bikers for Trump or other security volunteers.

    “I immediately thought of the Rolling Stones' use of the Hells Angels to provide security and crowd control at their infamous Altamont concert!” said Steve Amitay, the executive director and general counsel of the National Association of Security Companies, of Bikers for Trump’s activities at the candidate’s events. “How did that work out?”

    All of this shows how "mentally sick" this country has become; I fear if the "liar" is removed, that these idiots will protest the bad way; far much worse than the "demonstrations" because of the murder of Floyd.

    This will be interesting story to follow.

    How many Bikers show up?
    How well do the adhere to COVID-19 guidelines?
    What is the fall out in the Strugis, SD in the following 30-60 days?

    As pointed out in the article, these bikers are likely to take the virus back to their home towns in nearly all 50 states. Since there is no effective way to track COVID-19, the residents of their home town won't know how or why they see a spike

    .... But does it matter any more? COVID-19 is so out of control, IMO, every person in the US will be exposed to COVID-19 before it is under control. If my prediction is correct, this means Donald Trump will be exposed with a high probability of being infected and getting deadly sick. Herman Cain is example. Healthy man before, but has died after after being infected.

    Trump said some people will have to be sacrificed for the economy. So now he will be responsible for infecting every person in the USA that is susceptible to Covid-19.

    There was a funny meme on Facebook just now. A photo of Sturgis and the comment: There will probably be a lot of really good deals on used motorcycles in about 8 weeks.

    I suggest if you buy one of those, to super clean these of the eventually "virus" which still sticks to the handle bars. and don't forget to clean the saddle it will smell like cheap whisky. At least the price of coffins will go up; it escalates better than the "dollar".

    Getting sick with COVID-19 is a badge of honor proving loyalty to Donald Trump.

    Dying from COVID-19 is the price any true hardcore Trump voter is willing pay.

    When I was a member of BRMC we'd say about the same things if we'd seen a wrecked cycle, things like, are there any parts we can use off of Johnny's bike? after it had been smashed, and as he lay on a hospital bed or in the back of an ambulance. I know it sounds cold, but it was said jokingly.
