The corona virus has resulted in a variety of motorcycle rallies, events and gatherings being called off.

At Sturgis, though – that South Dakota mecca for motorcycle lovers the world over – the show must go on.

I don’t mean to belittle the danger of the disease at all,” Rod Woodruff, President and CEO of Sturgis Buffalo Chip said yesterday in a phone interview. “But we’re here to stay and planning to have our event and make the best use of knowledge between now and then in order to do that.”

As of this writing, REO Speedwagon and ZZ Top are still booked. Killswitch Engage, Stitched Up Heart, Shinedown, Puddle of Mudd are also still listed as making appearances either on the main stage or at venues in town.

“We’re good for all the bands,” said Woodruff. “I just got confirmation from another major headliner that confirmed Tuesday. We have confidence that our government and President are gonna figure this out. Information is power. In terms of people just getting on motorcycles, we have 600 acres. We can spread people out. We don’t want to succumb to the fear at this point.”

Multiple people were sent to the hospital following a shooting outside Roll’n Stonez Clubhouse

Experts say motorcyclists planning on riding in the coming year should take the following precautions:

Former Gypsy Joker Outlaw Motorcycle Club member pleads guilty to conspiracy to engage in racketeering for 2015 kidnapping and murder of a former club member.

*If you have symptoms, don’t ride. Seriously. Give your keys to your significant other or your mother, after you’ve doused them with alcohol or similar disinfectant. (The keys, not your mother.)

*Wear an R-PUR anti-pollution and anti-pollen motorcyclist face mask

*Wash hands thoroughly and frequently, and wipe your hand grips, keys, and the zipper of your jacket.

*Ride purposely in sparsely-populated, rural areas, and avoid direct contact with humans. If you must converse, keep six feet away as corona virus is spread mainly person-to-person via droplets that can come from coughing, but also from a person speaking. Carry hand sanitizer with you.

*Avoid touching your eyes, mouth or nose. Keep your helmet on if it reminds you.

*Pay with a credit card if you can, rather than using cash, which is pretty filthy as a rule, and germ-infested. Use gloves when you enter your PIN. It may seem like your sausage finger may punch a whole bunch of buttons at once, which is annoying, but you can get used to it. Otherwise, use a pinky and sanitize that pinky when you’re done.

*If you stop in a cafe or restaurant and you see employees working without gloves, take your business elsewhere.

Despite the city of Daytona Beach trying to curtail Bike Week by revoking permits because of coronavirus concerns thousands of bikers thundered onto Main Street on Saturday

*PACK TOILET PAPER. People are currently hoarding this essential item at unprecedented rates, so plan accordingly. Get used to it. Get used to a lot of things you’ve never seen before, as a matter of fact. Life as we knew it is over.

*As always, ride safe.
