It is a dealer issue more than a bad bike issue. If the dealer (a) is experienced with Bonnevilles, and (b) has a good mechanic or two, these problems should be fixed quickly and you should be on your way.

If on the other hand, there is some really bad mechanical gremlin lurking in the innards of the engine, I'd be talking with Triumph and asking them to take it back in exchange for a new one. Nobody wants a brand new bike that has had the engine torn down by a mechanic of questionable training or talent.

I think Bob357 has the right answer. Get the oil leaks fixed, get it back, and go ride. Just make sure to keep up with regular oil changes and other maintenance items (and keep the documentation) in the event there is some problem in the future.
