Some 40 minutes after the bikers left the security checkpoint to head, we can only assume, to the residence, the pool is still holding in vans at the security checkpoint.
Pool has gotten no word if the event is already underway and how it has been impacted by the intermittent storms. Based on this tweet from POTUS, it seems the bikers are meeting or have concluded meeting with him.

*Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump [ >https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump?s=11< ])* 8/11/18, 2:59 PM [ >https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1028355187939987465?s=11< ] Hundreds of Bikers for Trump just joined me at Bedminster. Quite a scene - great people who truly love our Country!

We continue to hold down the road and are inquiring about what is happening.
