Well they've already started cancelling my Holliday's how long will it be before they start cancelling rally's as well, then the next thing will be camp sites shutting down, look like we'll all be spending more time this year polishing our bikes than riding them, wondering if our biker cafe will close as well, what do people think?

Rally with over 500 will probably not go ahead camp sites are a completely different set up more space between tents less crowds and I very much doubt that they will be affected. IOM is unlikely as it will help keep it off the island same as the f&m outbreak

Cant see camp sites shutting down as they will be relying on whatever revenue they can get. Smaller gatherings are deemed low risk anyway.

All the armchair medical experts and prophets of doom are having their 15 minutes in the spotlight on social media atm 😕

It's a developing situation and Government advice will no doubt change, but atm as JP says there seems to be an opinion that up to 500 at an event is ok - would certainly meet the criteria for a controlled spread and herd immunity 🙄
So, most rallies should (under current guidelines) be OK....
Whether Clubs are happy to go ahead, whether bands will play and whether people will attend is a matter for conjecture and time will tell........
In the meantime I shall continue to make a list of events to attend whilst scouring the internet for on-line supplies of toilet paper! 😎

The bog roll conundrum is not one I have to suffer, I do one big shop per year for long lasting foods and household products including the afore mentioned toilet paper. I am not worried about rallies or holidays being cancelled as I am not attending any rallies this year and have no plans to go away for a holiday, I can relax quite comfortably at home without fear of contracting Montezuma's revenge by consuming dubious meals in foreign climes.
I am planning on doing a couple of camping weekends and am worried about the security of my paper supplies. As such I have taken steps to avoid the theft of my prized supplies and will be employing various safety protocols. All of my hard luggage will be alarmed and kept secured to my bike with additional chains for good measure. Should a Bill Sykes type character get past these anti theft devices, a small explosive marker bomb will be active at all times, the kind they use when transporting money and valuables in armoured cars. I have made enquiries to a firm of 'specialist protection agents' who assure me that hiring three or four highly skilled marksmen, armed with high power browning sniper rifles will not be cost prohibitive, so if you attend the same events as me, please keep a wary eye on the tree lines. I did contemplate deploying a series of landmines around my tent and bike but thought better of it after reasoning that I might stumble on one when returning to my shelter from the boozer, (how silly would I look then?)

Yet another year and no holiday planned, let alone booked. 😕 So this will probably be the only time I'm pleased that I am not going on holiday👍🏻😉

The powers that be may well ban that for fear of infecting the wildlife from whom the disease was contracted in the first place

Yes it does rain a lot, but you're spending too much time on the M4 lol. Wales is a beautiful place you just have to get out there and find the better parts. See you at our camping weekend. Hopefully we will have good weather.

Hey Fink I agree with you, Kawaka is in Wales but must use different road to you, I've done lots of events there without rain problems, it has rained but only the odd shower, it was in Scotland last year were I had a code yellow thunder storm to ride through. Changed my clothes every time I stopped!!
