The Isle of Man’s longest-established dealership, Road & Track Motorcycles, has closed down after more than 40 years. Primarily representing Yamaha, it latterly had KTM, Beta and Keeway franchises too. Based on Tynwald Street in Douglas, the company also claimed to be the Island’s leading retailer of bike parts, accessories and apparel.

In a statement, veteran proprietors Allan Lund and Sean Skillicorn said: “Running the business over the past two years has become a lot more challenging and time-consuming, with everything that is happening in our trade at the moment. As we head into later life, we are both looking to spend more time with our families, pursuing our hobbies and travelling.”

Besides the two dealer principals, staff included Sean’s son Ian Skillicorn and technician John Shields. Freelance riding instructor Charlie Williams also ran lessons from Road & Track’s premises — the doors of which were set to shut finally on 25 June.
