Our History

  • Welcome to the Open Road Harley-Davidson Family

Open Road Harley-Davidson is in its eighth year of business. One day you're dreaming about being in your own business doing something you love; and the next moment, you're feeling the thrill of riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Then, your passion turns into a fun family business atmosphere!

Who is?

Pete Johnson is native to Appleton, WI and has been a successful entrepreneur in real estate and financial services for over 25 years. Riding became a part of his DNA as a young boy at age 4, when he would ride dirt bikes with his brother's. He's been known to tear bikes a part and re-build them just to understand the mechanics. Harley-Davidson is to Pete like bread is to butter!

Lori Thiel is native to Hilbert, WI and has a 20 year career history in financial services. Growing up on a dairy farm gave her years on ATV's and dirt bikes that inspired her passion for riding. Entrepreneurship was a lifelong aspiration and when Johnson met Thiel at a Sturgis Rally, they began to explore the idea of owning a Harley-Davidson shop together. Now Co-owner's, they share their passion for riding with the community and have created a place where riders of all ages can come together.

Our Service Department is cutting edge. All of our Technicians are factory trained and PHD certified. We strive to get your motorcycle in and out as soon as possible. At Open Road H-D you can trust our work product; we simply do it right or we don't do it at all.

We pride ourselves on being a female-friendly dealership. Whether the woman who comes in is a rider, passenger, mother or significant other, there's a respect. We take pride in learning what riding is to you. Many of the women on our team ride, can relate and are glad to talk about our riding experiences without all the technical nuts and bolts. We know women are discovery oriented, so we listen, understand and make your riding experience authentic.

When and Where?

In 2007 Open Road Harley-Davidson became a full service dealership in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin with a state of the art 32,000 square foot building that includes 12,000 square foot showroom. We have an old factory décor with an open concept for easy shopping. Our shop is a great place to relax and interact with our knowledgeable team members, with complimentary coffee and hot chocolate. We are conveniently located in Fond du Lac right on highway 41, with easy access from any direction.

Why Believe in QUALITY?

Leisure time is a precious commodity to everyone today. Our team believes every customer who comes through our glass doors deserves the experience of personalized service and fun.

We're a new age Harley dealer with awesome customer service and selection.

WOW!!! I went to Open Road for the 1st time about a month ago. I was pretty intimidated about buying my 1st Harley Davidson. As I walked in Pete met me and my son immediately. He went through all the bikes they had there and really made us feel comfortable with his knowledge of the bikes. When we left I felt great about working with Open Road. What an AWESOME Experience!!!! You can't go wrong going to Open Road and all my friends will know it. Thanks again Open Road. - Jeff (FDL, WI)
Thank you all for the greatest service I've had in a Harley store ever! Everyone was very friendly and so helpful, we stopped at another dealer the other day and service was; let's say lacking the want of a sale. Keep up the great work and you have now found a family that will be in for sure several times a year for birthdays and every Christmas. Thank you! - Jackie (Slinger, WI)
We knew what type of bike we wanted, it was just a matter of where. ORHD got the sale - because of your AWESOME customer service that began with our walk thru the front door. We were greeted with genuine smiles that continued thru a no pressure sale, right up to our ride off the lot. We went to 4 other stores and your shop got the sale due to your A++++++++++++ customer service. You truly do live your slogan of Your Experience Is Our Passion. Kudos to you all! - Jeff & Tess (Berlin, WI)
