The consequences of COVID-19 still linger, with motorcycle events set for 2023 being cancelled in Germany.
After the introduction of COVID-19 in the UK, life is returning and regaining its sense of normalcy. Events are occurring, masks aren’t necessary, and many people have resumed their regular lifestyles.
Even though COVID-19 is slowly waning, its repercussions are still being experienced across the continent as motorcycle gatherings and events have been put on hold. News recently reported about two cancelled motorbike fairs scheduled for 2021 – evidence of how severely this virus continues to affect our lives and plans.
Contrary to what one may assume, the show’s postponement is not due to heightened concerns over COVID-19 spikes; instead, it appears that exhibitor participation has been scant and thus is at the root of this pause.
According to the website, exhibitor participation for the event was a staggering 50 per cent lower than predicted; this can be attributed to supply disruptions, an insufficiency of personnel to run it smoothly and the unstable political-economic atmosphere in that region.
Despite the short-term setbacks, organisers have maintained an air of optimism for when these events eventually occur. With new technology being employed, such as a remote viewing feature and streaming capabilities, organisers hope to create a unique virtual experience that will still remain true to its traditional format.
As we look ahead to 2023 and beyond, one thing is certain: while motorcycle events may be delayed, they will eventually return and provide the same joy and exhilaration that bikers have enjoyed for years. Until then, all we can do is wait – but with a little bit of luck and patience, we’ll soon see these amazing events back in action. Until then, we look forward to the day when motorcycle events can be held safely and with the same enthusiasm as before. In the meantime, let’s continue to follow safety regulations for our own health and the well-being of others. Thank
