Raleigh guys! The Triumph OS now has Ray Price listed as a dealer. Nothing on rayprice.com yet but it looks as if the triangle will soon have a Triumph shop once again. Maybe a RAT will follow?

I spoke with a woman at Ray Price the other day. Very friendly! She mentioned trying to get a pack together. They are currently getting their stock in order but have cert. technitions on site. Im happy to have a parts dealer close, but have had great experiences with Fox previously. Any thoughts? for an oil filter I'll go to RP, who knows...

Great for me since I live east of Raleigh and Fox is not all that convenient. I think Fayetteville was my closest dealer but I've never been to it. RP looks promising. More discussion in the Raleigh RATs thread below...

Looks like a nice little group we have here in Raleigh! I was at Ray Price last week and most of their Triumph stock is in and ready.

Plenty of bikes and clothing. Wanted to see a Tbird SE or 1700 but no have.

Hey Guys, A little bummed, I dropped my bike off on friday, thursday's tomorrow and haven't heard a word yet. I've called a few times already and they say the guys working on it. I hope this won't break the bank. Chompi at the bit to get back on her!!!!
