I have just passed 4000 KM (Almost 2500 Miles)on my storm, I had a gap of 30 years between bikes. Had a 650 Bonneville and a few 650 Yamahas.
after a demo around the block at the dealers I had a 150 km(93M) trip home and got used to the bike on the way 2 up. by the time I got home I was relaxed and felt I had made a great buy. If you exercise a bit of caution. (need to scrub the tyres in for a bit before the grip is great.)
Go for it. This is the best thing I have done for years. No regrets at all.(Maybe only that I did not do this a long time ago.)
