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 just picked up my new Storm yesterday and rode it 200 klms home. It's got shorty TORS with the the Twin "T" handlebars.
The sound and ride is incredible!
