Didn't realize Iowa had no helmet laws until I read some posts here.

So, Iowans, a question, what percentage of motorcyclists do you estimate DO wear helmets in Iowa?
I'd agree it's 25-35%. I wear mine unless I'm troubleshooting something i need to hear (brakes, rattle, etc), also only do that up and down my street. I have 2 helmets, full and half, depending on if I'm riding across town at 30mph or on the highway. I have been in a few accidents, one slow and one higher speed, I won't actually ride away from my house without a helmet.

Just going to take a wild guess here that COVID cases in Kossuth County are going to trend up for some reason in a week or two.
Just call it a protest instead of a rally and Covid-19 won’t be an issue.

The campground is. Pep's, Billie Jo's, HyVee, Casey's, Classic Stop, Chrome, Miller's, etc. aren't.
WTF is up with the garrigan school. Won’t tell people why no JV softball and then people find out that a player may be positive for COVID and they decide to still play varsity Softball but keep it quiet. Complete classless act.

I certainly wouldn't put that past someone with the last name "Meister." Aren't their twins still on the team? COVID would essentially end their HS softball careers.

There was 3 of them. Their assistant coach admitted that was the reason the JV didn’t play. Varsity game should never have been played.

Well we'll start it out of the cave. ABATE is holding their rally on their own land. If you're a biker are you planning on attending have you been to it in the past? I'm not a biker but I personally think I would take a pass on this if it were me. For anyone who goes stay safe and have a fun time.
So it’s been just under two weeks and I was tested for antibodies today. Negative, tell me more about your fear. Did zero social distancing and never wore a mask. Kossuth county didn’t spike either. Get off your high horse and let people love vs installing fear.

good thing you weren't a part of the 3.6 million cases in the United States or 38,000 in Iowa then

I'm sure people on a really hot day just loved that.

No, you see, it didn't happen to him, therefore it's not an issue
My favorite is how being asymp is one of the biggest problems with this and 'I went to so and so place, and was close to people without a mask the whole time, didn't even get sick' is such a common theme for so many people.
