Business Under Covid-19 Lockdown
It's now been almost four months since we have taken anyone out for a Harley Ride. My Heritage Softail is sitting in my garage waiting patiently for me to take it out for a ride. This time last year I would have been clocking up lots of kilometres, but all that is a distant memory now that Melbourne has gone into Covid-19 Lockdown.
I do have several booking in my diary for Harley Rides, but they are all in late August and as far away as September. As we get closer those bookings will be re-assessed in light of the existing lockdown conditions. We can only live in hope that things will return to a semblance of normality sooner than later.
Job Keeper, payments for which as an NBN registered business I am qualified to collect is what keeps us in existence. But, I would much rather not be putting my hand out for that money.
Sometimes, I ask myself "is it worth keeping going?" On reflection its my love of riding my Harley Davidson, and sharing that experience that stops me from just giving it all away.
Will our old customers return? I know they are out there. As we come out of winter and the weather starts to get warmer people will start to call. If we are not in lockdown their requests will be filled.
We would love to hear from you. It may be that you just want to touch base, you want to book something in for a later date. We aren't going anywhere and will be available to take you or anyone else for a ride in the future.
