That red haze color is striking in person. I had the opportunity to see one recently at my local dealer. However for as much as I like it I know I would eventually get tired of it. A more traditional color has a better chance of still being appealing 10 years down the road.

Same here. Red is typically not my favorite color. I'm happy with the blue/white color! I love my bird...

Hi,
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.......

This is mine, only thing I have added so far is the Triumph Short Exhausts.
Probably not the right place to ask but if I fit a "De-Cat" pipe will it give me any issues with the running of the bike or invalidate the warranty?

The blue and white was available the first couple years of the Tbird then discontinued. Lack of interest or just trying to pump up sales with other options, I doe no.

Hmm.. I didn't like the photo from the original poster.. but seeing your bike out in the "real world" as opposed to a showroom floor.. and it looks really cool. The shorty exhaust definitely helps define the bike's lines. You should get the black swing arm cover to clean up the axle. That would look really cool!... oh... and I'll bet the teardrop mirrors would look pretty awesome too!

Nice bike...

I beg to differ. Red is not my favorite color either, but I pulled the trigger on the red marble haze and it is really stunning. I don't think I'll get tired of looking at it for quite a while. No complaints here.
