Bikers from all over the country arrived in Sturgis, South Dakota this week for the famous annual bike rally.
It comes as no surprise that the media, which cheered on Black Lives Matter rallies for most of the summer, is suddenly concerned about the spread of Cooronavirus again.
From NBC News:
Sturgis motorcycle rally draws thousands of bikers despite coronavirus fears
Thousands of bikers poured into the small city of Sturgis, South Dakota, on Friday for the start of the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, despite concerns among residents that the 10-day gathering could spread the coronavirus.
The rally, which has been happening since 1938, expects to draw 250,000 people from around the country in what could be one of the largest public gatherings in the U.S. since the start of the coronavirus outbreak.
Some bikers at the event said that while they will take precautions against the virus, they didn’t let it stop them from coming.
“We’ll take precautions and, you know, hopefully, everyone will be respectful,” one biker told NBC’s “TODAY.” “We take it seriously but, no, no reservations. We’re glad to be here.”
Another said you just have to be careful. “You can’t not live life.”
There’s plenty of support for Trump at the event:
