We're Not Scared': Tens of Thousands of Motorcyclists Pack Lake of the Ozarks for Bike Rally

Along the Bagnell Dam Strip in the heart of the Lake of the Ozarks, thousands of motorcycles are tightly parked in the middle of a two-lane highway.

Tourists from across the country have been cutting loose along the historic stretch, known as the “main party hub” of the Missouri resort area, for months—but over the last three days, the highway lined with bars, hotels, and concert venues has been home to one of the largest motorcycle rallies in the Midwest: Lake of the Ozarks’ Bikefest.

Tens of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts have flooded the area for the annual rally, which started Wednesday, participating in five days of rides, fairs, music concerts, and coordinated stops at local bars and restaurants.

In one video from Thursday night, hundreds of patrons—most maskless—could be seen crowding into the strip’s bars and restaurants, clearly flouting federal social distancing recommendations. And Bikefest is not the only gathering at the lake this weekend. Hundreds are expected to show their support for President Trump at a boat parade taking place across the 92-mile-long lake.

1. So What? Let Them.

Let them infect each other, while paying no attention to them at all. That's my advice.

Who cares?

Fuck Trump and these cultists straight to fucking hell.

6. MineralMan - You surprise me with this comment. Kind of out of character as I seem to...

....agree with almost everything you say. The motorcycle rally in Sturgis ended up sending 200+ newly infected bikers out into America. If it ended with that, it would be one thing, but I'm pretty sure this ended up infecting a few waitresses, hotel staff, wives and girl friends, kids, teachers and co-workers in the weeks that followed.

8. Here's the thing: They're having this rally.

It can't be prevented or stopped. So, just don't give it any publicity.

There is a lot of things that need close attention right now. That motorcycle gathering isn't one of those things. Pay attention to things that can be changed, not things that can't.

Every Trump rally with no masks sends infected people into society, too. Every gathering with no masks does the same thing.

If it's something that can't be stopped, then it will happen whether we pay attention to it or not.

5. "We're not scared of causing other peoples' deaths" is what they should be saying.

As usual, they've got the whole thing backward. The masks and rules protect others. What they're doing is like a drunk car driver saying he's not scared of motorcycles.

7. Those guys can't be stopped. It's about their freedumb & they do not care about

anyone but themselves; I've never cheered for the death of anyone, but if someone gets COVID, it damn well better be some of those P***ks.

Walking around like regular people. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're dead.

12. Are they afraid of killing their grandmas and grandpas, chronically ill family members, etc?

Apparently the pea brains haven't delved that deeply into the consequences. Either that or they really don't care.

15. IMO probably knee-jerk reactions, not deep thinkers. ... probably won't care 'till

it smacks them in the face. ... slow learners, and then WTF, how did this happen.

18. Their actions could end up killing people who weren't even there.

Just like in Maine.

They go home and infect two friends, who also infect two friends, and so on and so forth.

SARS-CoV-2 kills. It's that simple.

19. And there's already a new surge of cases with the fall coming in.

I have a friend that just got tested....won't know results until Monday. These are scary times, and republican cult members just don't care about anybody but themselves.
