    What if your business overhead, and maybe your next meal, depends upon the vintage motorcycle industry?

    (Hypothetically...)

    Remember when motorcyclists were bold individuals?

    Me neither.

    Sorry I seemed insensitive, Brett,..

    But would your mother really want you to give up something you love?

    I understand the possible need to cancel any event. I don't take this virus crap lightly either. I just cannot understand the need to cancel 3 1/2 MONTHS in advance! A lot can change in that amount of time and it's not taking any chances by not making a decision yet. JMHO Thanks, Smitty

    Sure am upset that all these meets are being cancelled. Our Bear Mountain Chapter meet being held Sunday Sept. 13th in Pine Island NY will not be cancelled unless the authorities force us to. Stay tuned.

    The membership of most organizations like our motorcycle club, and the Lions Club who runs the Terryville Fairgrounds along with your local American Leigon, Masons etc etc etc are made up mostly elderly people.
    And they all have families and loved ones just like we do. These organizations do not feel a need to risk the lives of their elderly members for a motorcycle meet even if it brings money into their organization.
    I gave up doing ebay 2 months early this spring so I did not take a chance of bringing something deadly home from the post office that would kill my wife with the underlying problems that she has.
    It is called a sacrifice and whether or not we like it there is no other way to protect ourselves and curb this virus. All the money in the world is not worth it in my opinion. 46EL.
    PS Smitty; I sent you a PM and will call you tonight. Jp

    Sorry for your loss. Had some family memebrs that got real real sick but recovered. But to add a reply, your mom would not want you to take unnecessary chances either and to stay alive. Sometimes that means staying on the down low for a bit
