Triumph Dealers in the Southeast

I have decided it is time to move on from my current BMW K1200s and after much research decided on the Triumph Tiger 800. I live in metro Atlanta and there are 3 local Triumph Dealers with 2 appearing to be owned by the same group. I would like to get some input concerning the best dealers within the region ( GA, SC, NC, or AL) to 1) purchase the bike from and 2) to get serviced when required. Thanks in advance for all you help.

Clint

The dealership in Greenville SC is excellent. (Bmw,triumph,Ducati). They are friendly easy to work with and very responsive. Small but i think that helps their customer service Touring Sport is the name

Thanks Daniel, I will give the a call. I purchased an Aprilia Futura from them and you are right, their customer service was great.

Allsport, my local dealer, Decatur, AL. good customer service, but I am a long time customer also. I have always had good luck with their service department's work, but not the fastest turnaround time. If you call ask for Dean, tell him the zuma/harley rider referred you or pm me and I will give you my name.

Freedom Powersports in Kennesaw is where I have bought my last two Triumphs. Nice dealership. I dealt with Oly but I don't think he is there anymore. Roger is a nice guy and I would deal with him. Tell him Tommy sent you.

Thank you both for your suggestion. I went by Freedom in Lawrenceville last Saturday. Now I just need to get my bike serviced and sold where the real search can begin.

Truely, Trumpets are reliable enough that the service a dealer provides is not really an issue. If you can change your own oil there is not much reason to visit after the sale.

Thanks Yankee Dog. I am pretty good with the service myself. On my previous Aprilia I serviced everything but the valve checks.

Same as YankeeDog, I have owned several of the Hinckley Triumphs, 06 Tiger and 3 Bonnie variants, and have not had a single problem. Change the oil and adjust the chain.

bought my wifes Street Triple R at Freewheeling in Douglasville. pretty simple transaction and good to deal with. I had some experience with PS of Greenville but Freewheelin' had her color in stock. Didn't realize that Touring Sport had gotten triumph, so IMHO it's hard to beat them even with Joey and Frank being gone.

I would not recommend going back there for service. Bought my Tiger from Pandora's and if it needs work, that's where I'm gonna take it. So far all it has needed is gas, tires, and oil.

Ridge Motorsports - Bastesburg, SC

Ridge Motorsports in Batesburg, SC may be too far for ya, but I can tell you the owner (Jeff) and the service people there are top notch. They eat, sleep and breathe Triumph. I have had a few great experiences there and they are top notch people. If anyone is ever in the area, I encourage you to check them out.

Did you have a bad service experience with them or high prices or both?
