locally Owned

Locally owned and operated by Pete Johnson and Lori Thiel. Both Wisconsin natives and successful entrepreneurs with over 35 years of experience. Pete’s love of riding started at a young age riding dirt bikes with his brothers. He has a true love for these machines: Pete has even been known to tear bikes apart and rebuild them just to understand the mechanics. Lori’s passion for riding was inspired by years on ATVs and dirt bikes on her family’s dairy farm.

Entrepreneurship was a lifelong aspiration for both Pete and Lori, so when they met at a Sturgis Rally, they began to dream together of owning a Harley-Davidson® dealership. They founded Open Road Harley-Davidson® of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in 2007 and have been leading and inspiring others in reaching their riding goals. As Co-owners they share their passion for the community in supporting multiple charities each year while creating a place where riders and non-riders of all ages can come together.
