The dealer in San Bernardino is Doug Douglas Triumph. Tiny little shop on fifth street. Very nice people who take good care of their customers (no, I have no affiliation with them). The owner is Art who loves Triumphs and knows his stuff. They now also sell the new Royal Enfields. This dealer and the dealer in Brea are the only "platinum" dealers for Triumph in Southern California. The shop in Lomita is either silver or gold. OTD is not on the list and I have heard they have filed for bankruptcy. I like both Brea and Doug Douglas. Tom is the owner of the Brea store and he seems very nice as well. His shop will have the larger selection in stock. Both Brea and Doug Douglas have bike events each month with the one in Brea being larger. When I get my new T bird (hopefully soon) I will check both places. My guess is that I will get a better deal at Doug Douglas, unless I want something hard to get like the new red thunderbird se. Hard to find bikes are probably going to be in Brea, ready for immediate delivery.

Good luck with your decision. Let us know how it works out and where you end up buying it. Both Tom and Art are nice and patient with me for all the times I go in and sit on the Tbird and make vroom vroom noises . Either one will take very good care of you.

I doubt OTD has filed for bankruptcy in there the other day and their service department was flooded with bikes. Not sure how their sales were but they seem to be doing okay.

anyways I ended up getting a new 09 street triple R there and I was happy with the service and price.

The Lomita shop is a hoot. Situated in a (now) congested area with an eclectic staff and history. Worth the visit.

Sorry for zombifying this thread but I'd like to purchase a Street Triple sometime in the next couple of weeks and want to know what people's experiences are with OTD/LA Cyclesports in Inglewood. They seem to have the best price and are the closest dealer to where I live.

The Simi dealership seems like cool people, they do sell Triumphs, but seem more geared towards the japanese bikes. That was just my impression.

Man, too bad you weren't here now, meaning this weekend. SoCal Triumph was having their yearly open house Saturday. They have killer deals on this day. I bought my 07 Vic Kingpin 2 years ago on opne house day, it came with Basani 2 into 1 exhaust. MSRP is a little over 17,000 w/o the exhaust Out the door I got it for 12500.
Thanks for the mention about our shop. A few years back we had a service manager that from what i've read kind of ruined our rep. I am about a year and a half new. I sit in the Gm's office. We are really trying hard to gain our reputation back in service. And as far as Triumphs, Id have to say we are more geared towards this brand in 2013. Give us a try if you're in the Ventura County area. Thanks!
