  • The nine-city Progressive IMS Outdoors begins right now in Sonoma.

  • See and ride all your favorite motorcycles.

  • One aim of the tour is to bring in new riders to the sport.

While many industries took a big hit because of the COVID 19 Pandemic, the motorcycle industry experienced something of a boom, with sales up just about across the board. Seems people being cooped up and unable to work had them dreaming of and buying bikes galore.

One part of motorcycling that did take a hit, though, was the annual cross-country tour of motorcycle shows formerly known as the Progressive International Motorcycle Tour.

One dead and four wounded after motorcycle gangs clash on ‘bike night’ in Lake Ozark

A shooting Thursday night on the strip at Lake Ozark that left one man dead and four injured involved a confrontation between rival motorcycle gangs, a city of Lake Ozark spokesman told The Star.

The victims had not been identified as of Friday evening and conditions of the injured were not known, the city said. Early news media reports had said the shooting was “gang related,” according to police reports, but did not describe what type of gangs were involved.
