2020 has been a trying year for everyone and the 2020 motorcycle season will also have been affected.
Despite a late start to the season due to confinement, the motorcycle craze has not faltered and has even gained ground in some areas. Good news for our industry!
Some would say that it took a year like this to see Harley-Davidson produce an adventure motorcycle and BMW Motorrad a custom …
For us, if the past years we had posted between 400 and 500 events, this year, we will still have posted more than 300.
If the 2/3 will be canceled or postponed anyway, it shows the interest of motorcyclists in all kinds of motorcycle-related activities and the desire to come together and share the road.
Lots of events took place and dealers quickly adapted for test drives.
The 2020 season will also have brought us something new with the new Podcast from Ben Milot and Magazine Moto as well as a web series by Léo Harley-Davidson. Take advantage of the winter months to watch / listen to them if you haven’t already!
For our part, it will have been complicated to do our Knuckle Challenges with all the restrictions, regulations and different zones…
However, we will have managed to do 2 anyway. We thank once again Honda Canada and Canadian Kawasaki Motors for their participation. You can see the results of the Challenges here: The 2020 Kawasaki Versys 1000 SE and The 2020 Honda CB1000R
We will also have celebrated our third anniversary with a new logo and a complete update to our site! We invite you to consult it for all your motorcycle needs and more! Knuckle HQ
Unfortunately, the Covid will have got the better of some businesses and artisans in our community. Whether for economic, family or human reasons, we are saddened every time and hope for the best for them, their families as well as for others who are going through difficult times.
Uncertainty still hangs over our lives, and the year 2021 promises to be similar to 2020. Already, the Motorcycle Shows recently announced the postponement of their events to 2022. The race days are announced with caution and in consideration of the “bubbles” used in 2020. And the presence of spectators is still uncertain depending on the regions and provinces.
Until the start of the next season, we invite you to take good care of yourself and your families. Hope to see you all in the spring on your motorcycles!
We remain hopeful that 2021 will be better!
The Team Knuckle wishes you a Good & Happy New Year 2021!
