“Oh, it’s—it’s amazing it gets really hard sometimes because a lot of folks don’t understand us they haven’t been there, they haven’t see what we’ve seen and it’s great to get that brotherhood together and take a deep breath and talk,” says motorcyclist, Anthony Wick.

The motorcyclists at Sturgis will stay within their individual groups to maintain social distancing.
