    Likely the first year that foreigners won't be allowed into the US for a bike rally. I'll stay home and remain healthy.

    I'm glad they're not trying to stop it. I'm tired of all this nonsense.

    I'm just not worried about it. I know several people that have had it. If I hadn't I would be kinda surprised since its so easy to catch and everywhere according to the media:rolleyes:. Only one said it was kinda bad having a fever for three days. The rest didn't even get a fever, had some body aches, and lost their taste and smell temporarily. The one that had it the worst also has some other health issues which I am sure did not help.

    Yep. It's a flu. People die every year from the flu, and the press's reaction to this one is flamboyant in nature.
    A great movie about overcoming your fears is called "Defending your life". A very fun and unique love story.

    Only problem is we just don't know how badly an infection would be handled by our bodies. Big and strong young die along with the weak and disabled aged. It's almost a roll the dice situation. Govern yourselves accordingly.

    The coronavirus has been around for many years. This is the 19th version of it. This one can best be labeled a Scamdemic or a Plandemic. Sadly the reporting has been politicized from the very beginning. The best treatment has been as well.

    Take a look at every country that’s dealt with Malaria for years and get their actual coronavirus information. They’ve been talking the best treatment for decades and are mostly immune to COVID-19.

    But since Trump mentioned the treatment all of a sudden the news says it’s bad. I know what treatment I’d demand if I got it.

    Sounds like life. One day here, next day gone.

    That is why I have the toys I do. So many wait for a retirement that never comes or comes and then they die. Not me. I am going to do some of the things I want while I can. Having several close calls on the job really made me appreciate life and see that tomorrow is not a guarantee.

    Well, there’s always a Clorox shooter and an ultraviolet lamp up the butt to kill the virus.

    How did this Sturgis article turn into this Covid crap anyway? I’m not going because the borders are closed. The same for any foreigners. I’ll visit south of the border again once it’s safe enough for the borders to be declared open again. That may be a year or more.

    Umm.....Because you yourself said you would not be going and instead be staying home to remain healthy.

    What else is there to talk about? Lol! Everything is corona now days.






    I see Katsh!t stopped by to share his joy with red Xs. I'll just throw those in his litter box. Afraid of the flu. Lol!

    Let us know how that Clorox shooter and UV butt lamp works out for you. Do other Canadians have similar thoughts on medical treatments? Is it the Socialized Canadian healthcare system that has you looking for 'alternative' options.

    I'd suggest leaving your Clorox shooter and your butt light idea alone though. Just go for a ride on your beautiful CCT. You'll feel better about things as soon as you start riding. Unless you don't.

    All the best to you sir.

    Some of the best riding I've been on was a trip through Sturgis and the surrounding states a few years ago. I'm not interested in going to the rally but the area sure is beautiful for riding. Though I think an estimated 250K attendees would be on the low side compared to recent years.

    Because you used the situation to make a statement that's political in nature.
    You have'nt been here for 15 years and now your not gonna come because of the flu.
    Pure hockey puck.

    I've had the "flu" and I use the "" because flu is a viral illness, but no one is ever sure which virus caused it. So, some of you run from viruses? Might as well run from your shadow, it's just as ever present as viruses.

    It saddens me to see grown men living in fear of something from which there is no escape. (virus). You will get sick in your life and eventually one of them will kill you. Or, maybe you will be fortunate enough to die in your sleep......but before you die, you might want to have lived.

    I've had some strange and terrible illnesses. Still here, and actually quite healthy. It will happen again, and then we'll see. My time is already determined, so while I will not test God, I will not disobey his directives to live and "fear not" either.
