KEEP IT! It really takes 5,000-6,000 miles (10,000km) to get to know a bike or car. I only had to go test ride some Victory's the other day to help me appreciate my TBird. Victory's shift hard, *thunk* like a dump truck, their grips are too small for my hands and they are not balanced - at 60 mph I took my hands off the bars and went straight out my sides like an airplane and I had to compensate to the right with my hips - they wanted to lean and go left - I tried this on 2 different models of Crossroads and their Hammer. Try it on your Storm - get up to cruising speed and release the bars and feel her perfect balance.
