Moving Freely Through A Life Full Of Beers, Bikes and Burgers

Picture this… You run a thriving hospitality business in a popular suburb, with old-school furnishings decorating the space, a large beer garden, you serve milkshakes and super-sized burgers AND in your spare time you fix up a 1977 Harley Davidson and use it as your main mode of transport.

Tama Jamieson, operations manager at Rick’s Garage and owner of a 1977 Harley, saw the transition of Rick’s Garage in 2003 from a mechanics workshop to a diner with booths and a beer garden. Being a family business, Tama is extremely proud of how far they have come and have been fortunate enough to employ almost 60 local staff members that represent the business really well.

Throughout a 10 week forced shutdown of the business due to the pandemic, Tama used the time to rework a 1977 Harley. He jumped on his bike (once he had finished fixing it) and got home to realise his home shed was just filled with junk parts and nowhere to store his bike. Luckily, Tama saw the big red storage facility on the side of the Bruce Highway on his way home from work and before he knew it he was packing up a Mammoth truck and moving all that junk into storage.

Tama has created the space for himself to work on his Harley and take it for a spin after a hard day’s work and let any dramas from the day fade away.
