We’ve all heard of convenience stores; praising them as a godsend when we’ve run out of milk, bread and, most urgently, toilet paper. But what about when doing things quickly isn’t the best option?

This month, Swann Insurance, Australia’s largest niche insurer of motorcycle insurance, is giving motorcyclists another excuse to ride, as it launches an ‘Inconvenience’ Store in 63 Barkly Street Glenlyon.

The opening of the Inconvenience Store on Saturday 9th September looks to turn everyday errands, that often prevent motorcyclists going for a longer ride, into the perfect excuse for one. On average, Australian riders only use their motorcycle twice a month.

The insurer has created a range of limited edition necessities for each store, including 100 Inconvenient Milk bottles, 100 Inconvenient Chocolate bars and 60 rolls of Inconvenient Toilet Paper. All products within the range will come complete with discounted insurance policy offers.

Located a cruisy 1 hour and 30 minutes from Melbourne, the ride out to the Inconvenience Store will take in sights including the Mount Macedon Ranges.

“We know how much our customers love to ride, but we also know that everyday life can get in the way of being able to hit the road as frequently as they would like,” says Rita Ibrahim, Manager – Direct Distribution for Swann Insurance.

“The launch of the Inconvenience Store is designed to make life’s more mundane activities, like picking up a litre of milk, the most exciting thing a rider does all week.”

The Glenlyon Inconvenience Store is one of four opening across Australia. Others can be found in Berry (NSW), Bunya (QLD) and Bourke (NSW), giving motorcyclists around the country the opportunity to pull on the leathers.

“Whether it’s a solo journey or part of bigger organised group with your fellow riders, the journey out to one of our Inconvenience Stores promises to be an epic adventure through your own backyard,” continues Rita Ibrahim.

“Just make sure you leave a note explaining you might be a little longer than five minutes.”
