Just comparing turnover this week, to the equivalent week in 2019.
Turnover is down by 80%.

And that's with the euphoria of the business being back open.
That's not something to 'like' that but you certainly have my empathy and I doubt that you are the only one in that unfortunate boat. Having said that there are signs of people wanting to get their lives back, I hear from the trade that used motorbikes are in high demand at the moment as people avoid public transport while the car business is also picking up. As a biker myself it would worry me that the roads are suddenly filled with inexperienced riders leading to accidents and calls from the usual mindless do gooders to ban bikes altogether etc.
