In an unusual pairing, motorcycle racing hall-of-famer Ray Price wlli extend his shingle in Raleigh, N.C., to include Triumph. Ray Price Harley-Davidson will receive its first shipment of Triumph bikes next month.
Price, 72, raced bikes from 1966 until 2003, when an accident forced him to retire. He still rides, but on a trike now. He does it by putting his bad hand into a Velcro-lined glove and attaching the glove to the handlebar, according to the News Observer.
Triumph has five dealers in North Carolina, including Fayetteville and Greensboro. Price will be the first Harley dealer in the state to sell Triumphs.
