New Bonnie Owner
Hi all, I just purchased a 2013 Bonnie and rode home from Tallie a couple nights ago. I guess, it was the coldest night of the year, just my luck.
I wanted to let ya'll know that I visited Ton Up, today, and they have recently recieved a visit from the Triumph rep for the South East. I left with a nice 110th anniversery pin (nice enamel piece) and key chain, free of charge! They also gave me a nice Ton Up sticker. They also gave me a tour and showed me all their vintage bikes and let me know they have a social on Fridays at 6.
My point is, I walked into a motorcycle shop/garage/meeting house and wasn't treated like an a$$hole!! I was offered a tour of the place, told to make myself at home and not pressured to buy things. This and the fact that I live in the area makes me a VERY happy camper. Also, they have an onsite mechanic who comes highly recommended.
That's just my experience, for what it's worth. They also have a race team that does historics, so that's super cool. The owner told me he can get any parts in the catalog for me. I'm glad I found out about this because the old dealer in Orange Park had such a bad rep, that I wouldn't have given them a dollar had they NOT gone out of business.
Also, I am down for meet ups in the area (Riverside, West Side), but I am not a crotch rocket guy, so I may not be able to keep up with you.
