Hoping to make up for lost time

The Covid-19 closure came at our busiest time of year when many riders are usually getting back on the road after winter and buying new bikes.

April and May are the months when we sell the most bikes but we’re hoping we can make up for lost sales with many people choosing not to go on holiday this year after the lengthy lockdown.

Director Dave Willis said: “We’re hoping some people might choose to put money they were planning to spend on a holiday towards other projects such as a new motorbike for days out in the summer sunshine.

“Why not buy a bike and disappear off for days out and discover some of our beautiful country.”

While the showroom is now open again and back to our normal business hours (08.30 - 17.30, Monday to Friday; 08.30 - 17.00 on Saturdays) there are some restrictions, a one-way system and social-distancing measures to keep our staff and customers safe.

“We’ve had a lot of positive feedback about reopening. People are looking forward to coming in again but while we normally like them coming in, and hanging out here, that is just not possible at the moment,” he said.
