Newish to the forum but that is spooky, I have just traded in my 09 speed triple for a graphite grey Thunderbird Storm also.
Absolutely love it and have managed to do 700 miles in a month, (which is a lot for me).
Have had the first service and no problems or issues yet, which after reading about some of the problems on here I thought I might have.
Used to ride with a group of sportsbike people but they just rode like idiots so decided to move on.
Just need to find some UK Storm riders now, as most on here seem to be from America.......
