That would be great. I will be at MAD (motorcycle appreciation day) on Saturday. If you are going, maybe we can meet.

Right now, I am sitting at Tim's waiting for my bike. First checkup.

And for those wondering who Tim is. Tim's is a large donut shop chain in Canada.

Are you talking about Tim Horton's? They have the best coffee.

Yap! And yes, they have the best coffee. Some have said it is the nectar of the gods.

Anyways, here is some photos.



My wife laughed at me with my nap stack and said to get some bags. I am leaning toward the Hardstreet slimbags as I hate leather and the E21 look aftermarket.
Beautiful! I LOVE the storm and the windscreen is perfect. Enjoy your ride brother!

Just a suggestion - peel them reflectors off? Ugh.

I popped mine all off the first hour after I got home. If you are buying a bicycle from Canadian Tire, they load those with reflectors too. I'm not a kiddie anymore

Need to revive this thread, I have got quite a few pm's (always welcome) about the R3 windshield on my 11'storm. The dealer sold me the bike loaded with acc's and 2800 miles for $11,900 + tx at 5.9 for 60 mos. anyhow, the sales mgr told me the original owner modified the screen to fit the storm. I love it & want to share "how to" with other storm owners but I didn't do the work so more close up's are in order. WOW I really need to take a day off riding & clean my garage.
