A motorcycle rally held in South Dakota in August and attended by hundreds of thousands of Americans from across the country is linked to more than 260,000 Covid-19 cases recorded in the US since 2 August, a new study suggests, with researchers describing the event as a “worst-case scenario” for spreading the disease.

Between 7 and 16 August, around 450,000 people from across the states flocked to Sturgis for the annual 10-day Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which featured several concerts and was held despite cases soaring across the country. Last week, a 60-year-old man with underlying health conditions was the first known person thought to have died with coronavirus having attended the event.

Honda confirmed the Hunter Cub CT125 it introduced in March 2020 will be sold in the United States, where it will be called the Trail 125. It’s an evolution of the Super Cub C125 upgraded to comfortably wander off the pavement.

It benefits from more ground clearance, beefier tires, a model-specific suspension, a bigger fuel tank that unlocks more riding range, and skid plates to protect the engine from expensive encounters with boulders. Honda also positioned the air intake higher to ensure the engine doesn’t suck in water, and it added an upswept exhaust that gives the Trail 125 the low-end and mid-range power it needs to soldier on when the going gets tough.

It’s not a hardcore off-roader, but it lets users explore

Young mother Carla Rodriguez, mourning her husband’s death in a horrific motorcycle wreck, fought back tears as she spoke of lost dreams and their beautiful 1-year-old girl.

Dad and husband Eric Mejia isn’t ever coming home. The 23-year-old, a passenger on a motorcycle driven by his younger brother, was thrown 200 feet through the air to his death last Sunday.
