Hi Guys,
I bought a new 2013 Bonneville one year ago at Thiel's Wheels in Upper Sandusky and put 5,000+ miles on it last summer after 20+ years of no riding.
I have yet to see another Triumph on the road! If any of you are coming to Ohio Bike Week in Sandusky, or Vintage Motorcycle weekend at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course this year, drop me a line and maybe we can meet up.
Cheers,
Brian

bkh,
Welcome! I currently reside in Maine but will soon be moving to Wooster, OH. I have a couple or friends out there who ride Triumphs, a bonneville and tiger. I jump on my T100 and get them to join me and we'll ride to Mansfield so you can see them! Ha,
I was aware of Thiel's in Upper Sandusky and wondered what they were like? Any comments? Good, bad, ugly, excellent?

Welcome...

Pretty sure that Thiel's has dropped its other brands ( including Triumoh ) and is strictly H-D now.

I'll most probably be at Vintage Days, but may be going to Indy for the Jndy Mike Flat Track races instead.....both events the same weekend.

Welcome to the forum!

I have seen many folks from Ohio post introductions on here, so I know Triumph riders are out there in Ohio. Visit the RAT forum for the Mid West to find some riders in your area.

Also, visit the Ride and Events section to see if anyone is planning rides in your area.

And introduce yourself in the Twin Talk section for information, opinions, and conversations about Bonnevilles.

Cheers!

It's true, Thiel's has gone strictly HD now. I heard a rumor that Iron Pony in Columbus is picking up a Triumph franchise, don't know if that one's true or not.

Greetings from N. Canton, OH.
Of course the number of Triumph riders around central Ohio is small compared to the ubiquitous HD riders, but we are out there!
Mid Ohio this year is on my list.
