    There’s a rumour gaining a bit of traction down here that Richardsons are closing their Hobart store.

    Makes sense.
    Tassie's not that big of a market, and Hobart is only a small shop compared to Launceston .
    Last time I was in the Hobart shop, they didn't even have any TC rocker box gaskets in stock ....plenty of T-shirts though !

    Shit! I heard he’d gone over to Ducati. Their shares will skyrocket if it’s true. Lol.

    Went down to Hobart town on fri 3rd Aug & poked around the shop. They said the building was for sale. They only rent it & had no idea what would happen after that.

    Didn't have a new battery last time I was there.
    Gotta add, it would be a bummer to see them close. Handy to get parts for servicing there and they did have an excellent mechanic once upon a time.

    The mechanic left (Warren) he was pretty good. Since then, not sure I would get them to service anything. I think they were transporting anything other than basic service to Launceston at one stage.
    Not a lot of knowledge in there since Micky and Nicky left either.
    They stock fark all anyway, but it is handy sometimes....

    Not sure he will close up as Harley put the ultimatum on hime to open in Habart or Harley would give it to someone else (Titan I heard at the time).
    Mind you lots of rumours......not sure how much is fact!

    That place in the sea on the way to that other shit island, where people have two heads I think. I heard that if you miss it you land up on the other island where they all shag sheep, New something or other.

    Still wearing a pair of HD Gloves bought from Richardson"s in Loonie two decades ago, though I do have like many pairs of riggers gloves I use in between. 
    I enjoy visiting the shop .
