H-D Florida Group - COVID-19 | Announcement #2
March 17, 2020
An update to our Team and Guests,
After tuning into the Panama City Beach City Hall special meeting this afternoon, we have been informed that The City of PCB has canceled all events until May 1, for the safety and welfare of their community. Unfortunately, this will include the Spring Thunder Beach Rally. We respect the decisions that the city has made, and will follow guidelines to keep our dealership safe and healthy.
In addition to this, all H-D Florida Group events (both onsite and offsite) will be either postponed to a later date or cancelled, through the end of April. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are individually reaching out to our vendors & event partners, but if you have an event coming up with our Tampa, Brandon, New Port Richey or Panama City Beach H-D dealerships in the next 45 days, please send an email to our Marketing Director, Maggie, at Margaret.Snyder@Ferman.com and she will do her best to get your event or ride rescheduled as soon as our current situation allows.
For your safety, our complementary food & snacks in the lounge and weekend Grill N Chills will remain discontinued until further notice. We are stocking up on more sanitizing products, and committed to keeping our dealerships a clean and safe environment for our Guests to visit, relax and shop!
Our Riding Academy Course will remain open at this time; our RA Coaches and Students will have their own supply of cleaning and sanitizing products for the training room, supplies and bikes on the range.
If you are in need of assistance with your bike, or any other department, but are uncomfortable with coming into the dealership, give us a call and we will serve you over the phone or schedule a time for pick up/delivery of your motorcycle.
As this situation evolves, and the CDC & Governor announce changes to guidelines, we will continue to update our Guests weekly. We want riding your motorcycle to be the easiest thing you get to do all week! So please let us know if there is anything we can do to help make that happen.

H-D Florida Group - COVID-19 | Announcement #1
March 13, 2020
The Harley-Davidson Florida Group considers our Team and Guests as family, and we care for the health of our Family. We want to continue to see smiling faces in our dealerships everyday, and out enjoying the thing we love most: riding motorcycles!
To help promote a healthy environment we are taking extra care in cleaning the highly used & common areas such as door handles, computers, keyboards, telephones, computer screens, all bathroom surfaces & appliances and the Guest lounge and soda fountains. For your safety, we will be discontinuing the complimentary food in our Guest lounge and the weekend cookouts. In addition, all offices, bathrooms and work stations are equipped with hand sanitizer to be used by all. This is a very fluid situation. As our Team learns more information about the COVID-19 virus, we will continue to update our Guests with regards to our H-D events & activities.
Each of our dealerships has briefed the Teams on the benefits of hand washing, keeping a respectful distance from each other (no handshakes, hugs or high-fives) and have encouraged our Team Members to stay home if they are feeling ill. In return, for the sake of our Team Members and their families at home, we ask that our Guests refrain from coming into the dealership if you are feeling ill as well.
H-D Florida Group will continue to provide our Guest’s with a premium Harley-Davidson experience through this unfortunate situation, but we ask our Guests of the following:
- If you have been exposed to Covid-19 (corona virus) and still need assistance from one out our departments, please give us a call ahead of time and we will find the safest way to serve you.
- If we are picking up a motorcycle from your home, office, or road side assistance and you have been exposed to the virus, please alert us so that we can be prepared and take precautions, with gloves and cleaning supplies for handling your bike.
Thank you for helping us keep our dealerships safe and clean!
For these trying times, the best remedy is to get your head in the wind and ride your motorcycle!
See you on the road.
