Another Dealer Down!!
« on: December 10, 2013, 04:53:42 AM »
I learned today that Ohio Motorcycles has been locked down, both the Cleveland and Columbus locations. :161: Doors are chained shut - looks like the tax man got 'em. Guess I know now why I got such a great deal on my Trophy a few months ago - they needed some cash flow!!  :003: I'll miss the awesome 20 minute ride on a hilly, twisting parkway between my house and their store. Now my nearest dealer will be an hour away.  :151: I'll also miss my loyalty discount on parts and accessories, no great loss, but my heart really goes out to all the dedicated, professional employees there who have lost their jobs just weeks before Christmas, they will be missed the most. Sad day.

I was at the Columbus location last Friday, the 6th, and was told that location, at least, had been sold to another dealer from the Dayton area.  I actually talked with the new owner.   Of note, the owner told me they lost the BMW franchise and were not sure if they would be able to keep Triumph.  Now that was last week,  so who knows?

It can't be more than 35 minutes or so down to Northern Ohio Ducati Triumph in Akron.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Not that it matters in your case, but Pandora's here in Chattanooga seems to be doing fantastic.
