Any difference in size of original T-bird and Storm?

I saw a blue and white striped T-bird parked outside a coffee shop today, and just stood there admiring it! It just looked HUGE. Had a regular windshield, big crash bars and side bags, but it just looked massive. My first immediate thought was that I don't think I can handle this bike....and I'm a 6"1', 215 lb athletic guy.

The guy who owned it was right behind me and was kind enough to chat for 15-20 mins. Told me if I'm not used to cruisers, I shouldn't buy a T-bird (Storm) as my first bike.

Any suggestion from the experienced riders here?
