Soft paint on the 2011 Storm is a fact, not a subjective whine
. The performance, however, will kick your butt on the back county roads.
I ride with folks that park their bikes on the street 365 and ride 50/52, so blemishes are a badge of honor.
5 yrs from now, the Storm will prob be painted camouflage anyway, cuz that is our official color in Sussex County, New Jersey!
