    On another note to Kevin H>, tell team Pterodactyl that I warmly remember them pulling a shift at the BG a few rallies ago, Never did get my honorary team P decal though.

    I will see that the Team Pterodactyl Countersteering Committee takes up the oversight.

    There is really another very unknown factor that may or may not impact the Rally. I suspect there might be a pent up desire to get out and ride! Those of us who have the ability to ride on OUR schedule will be riding as soon as the "all clear" is given. So making a potentially premature decision to cancel might preclude some riders from attending. In addition let's realize this is a presidential election year and THIS IS NOT MEANT TO BE A POLITICAL COMMENT but having the economy come back as soon as possible could also be a factor. In addition to any negative financial issues for the organization. And while $$ should not be the driving factor it might need to be a consideration depending how impactful it could be.

    All more reasons to just wait and see. I support those MOA elected members to make the best decision for all of us.

    I'm pre-registered for the rally and won't cancel, I'll just let the money ride until next year. If the rally happens I can be packed and ready in an hour.

    I've been thinking for the last few weeks, if this rally gets cancelled it will be by the folks in Montana, not the MOA. The reasons were stated a few posts ago. It's all legal and contractual.

    Personally, I consider riding as "social distancing".

    All a GS rider needs is a credit card for pay-at-the-pump and a roll of TP and an e-tool in the pannier. “Good to go” as they say in the military.

    Look at New Orleans

    Ok, I had to add my 2 cents... I live in the far, far Northeastern corner of California. I work as a Senior Clinical Laboratory Manger in a hospital. I have a degree in Microbiology, have certification as a specialist in Microbiology, and I have taught Microbiology.

    I had registered for the Rally and had booked multiple hotels... really looking forward to the riding! However, when one thinks about a large group of people from around the country and the world descending upon one location and intermingling, all that I can think about is what has happened to New Orleans and the rest of Louisiana after Mardi Gras was allowed to happen...

    My hope is that we and our friends and families will be safe....... I am looking forward to warmer temps this week, and getting my 2016 R1200RT on the road again!

    Ride safe and practice social distancing in 5th and 6th gear!

    Montana seems to be holding our own.

    - 286 known cases, six deaths, 24 hospitalized.
    - Added 19 as of Saturday morning; added five as of Sunday morning.
    - One death in the past three days.
    - Do not know how many of the 24 hospitalized are still in a hospital.
    - Gallatin County has 115 cases. A tourist area adjacent to YNP.
    - Half of the deaths in one retirement home

    I too am registered for Great Falls. I seriously see little chance of going if its even possible to go at all. Currently here in Calgary, all events until the end of June are off. The border restrictions are set to be in place until the end of June if not lifted early. Even if the restrictions are lifted and travel is possible, I'm quite leary of doing so that soon after all this. It's disappointing for sure to miss out on a rally so close to home.

    I have not yet cancelled my rally registration, I'm waiting to see the 2021 destination and determine if I will be likely to go to that one. I assume that will be known before long so a decision can be made to let the money stand or seek a refund.
