Howay the lads!

Y'areet? I'm an expat in Ohio, originally from Newcastle upon Tyne (and if anyone mentions EPL football, I'm just gonna sigh and shake my head).

I just bought a 2011 Thunderbird Storm yesterday, so I thought I'd come and find where the brain trust is on this puppy. Looks like I've found it, so I'll be doing more reading than writing to begin with I suspect.

About the bike: 1,800 miles on it, shorty exhaust pipes, touring saddle, comfy backrest, and a vestigial luggage rack where the passenger seat used to reside. I also get all the stock parts that were on it, too. I bought it from the same dealer who sold it new to a repeat customer, and has maintained it since.

Previously rode a Yamaha FZ6R, so this is a big step up (and sideways) for me. My son gets the 6R.
