June 6, 2020 is the scheduled date of the Spring GBB Ironhead Gathering.

The Ironhead gods have shined on us many times in the past, so let's hope they show mercy on us again!

If this COVID crap is past us by then(especially by y'all), I will try and make this one. My wife is high risk(no pneumonia resistance) and I work in Dialysis repairing equipment. Kinda dicey now, but that all could change. Godspeed everyone.

Sounds good, Brian! If COVID overstays its welcome, there is always the fall GBB Gathering.

The GBB founding members had a meeting (while maintaining appropriate social distancing of course), and we have decided to postpone the Spring 2020 GBB at this time.

I will provide any updates as they develop, but the GBB gathering scheduled for June 6th 2020 will NOT take place, and has been postponed to a future date which will be determined later.

Although we did not "officially" hold the Spring 2020 GBB today, the founding members of the GBB Ironhead Riding Society still went out for what we called the "GBB: Quarantine Edition".

Papa Magneto (1967 XLCH), 16ouncePBR (1962 XLR Tribute), Ironhead Art (1968 XLCH), and I (1964 XLCH) met up and ran a tank of gas through our Ironheads this morning to preserve the continuity of the GBB. The weather was gorgeous, and the route was perfect. We saw farms, wildlife, and hardly any cars.

We hope to see you all in Fall 2020!

Thanks for reading,
-Magneto Sportster
