i also just went from a speed triple to a thunderbird ... i bought a matte black storm.. pick her up tomorrow from brisans at newcastle.. loved my speedy but the look of the storm just got me. i guess love at first sight!!
I ha e had my storm for a month and 1300 miles and love it. Just makes me grin when I ride her. Put the short pipes on her. Ordered some has for it too. Congrats on your new buy. Enjoy.
