How our worlds have changed in the 2 weeks since Bike Week ended. We talked about Coronavirus during the event, but the magnitude of the pandemic had yet to be grasped. I heard a report that at least one attendee had been infected, but later was told that the individual became ill while traveling to Daytona but ended up in St John’s County about an hour north and didn’t make it to Daytona. With so many people gathered in one place (and many visiting from the Northeast), it’s highly probably that some carried the virus.
But it’s been two weeks and I’m fine and symptom free and and grateful to have had the opportunity to enjoy the event. Unfortunately, it will be a long time before we are all able to gather together again like that, whether at Daytona or any of the other great bike rallies that take place around the country. I hope that you and your loved ones remain healthy.
