People before profit at Boyle Kawasaki
What a wonderful thing it is to meet people in business that have your genuine interest at heart. One business that puts people before profit is the oldest family motorcycle business in town. I'm talking about Boyle Kawasaki on Adelaide Rd, Newtown, and it is well overdue that I do so. I bought my first motorcycle from Don Boyle who is no longer in the business. However that is how I met the wonderful but a little eccentric, Boyle family. The original business closed but re-opened a long time ago under the management of the Boyle brothers Mark and John.
Motorcyclists know this business for its unique culture of casualness but no nonsense common sense advice on anything you please. It is a special fraternity of care for the big family of customers who are made friends of by these unusual men. These guys can be guaranteed to call a spade a shovel. Not only that but they exhibit a level of candor and honesty that is rare in business today. This week I pay a special tribute to this business and the wonderful way in which the Boyles were raised by their super loving parents, Mrs and Mrs Boyle senior, who are still seen in the shop from time to time. Mrs Boyle senior is still active but unintrusive in this fabulous motocycle shop that is staffed by excellent mechanical staff headed by Mark Boyle and his stoically mechanical off-sider Steven.
If you are thinking about a future in motorcycling because you care about conservation of the environment and saving precious fossil fuel make sure you pay this family business a visit first.
