Re: 2021 Announcement from the head office

Who are they kidding? Four months out and they haven’t even called it...
it isn’t happening.

Which, fortunately, means it IS happening, for the self-reliant people!
Amazing how the anti-establishment becomes the new establishment.

Re: bike, parts shortage

If you’re got a 1974-1976 Yamaha Moto-Bike BMX bike, don’t hang it upside down, the shocks will leak oil.

Re: Anyone have a cruiser bike with electric front hub?

In ‘00 or ‘01 I had a cruiser bike with a gas motor on the front wheel.
It worked great, there weren’t any stability problems.
The coolest thing was the pedals can still power the rear wheels so you’ve got all-wheel-drive to help get through the silty spots.

It’s an event that takes lots of planning and spending, without knowing if you’ll even get a ticket.

Re: Hopefully 2021??

It’s gonna happen whether the BMORG holds the event or not, just like in 2020. The irony is you can go if it’s cancelled, and you probably can’t go if it isn’t. Tickets are hard to come by and largely luck of the draw. Demand surpassed supply almost ten years ago, and demand for the next one will pr...

Re: Festival Research Project - Looking for participants to discuss the sexual assault initiatives in place at Burning M

One of the reasons no one wants to be part of this is we know it’s going to be complete BS. No one that hasn’t been to Burning Man ever writes about it and gets it even halfway right. You should just make stuff up. Who’s gonna know the difference? It’ll come out about the same as the way you’re doin...

So has anyone come up with any real info on the supposed “super spreader” 2020 Burn?
I didn’t get the virus by being there and neither did anyone I know.
I’ve heard nothing about nearby towns (that are actually many miles away) being stricken.
