Well, it's confirmed, i pick up the new Storm on Friday and the weather forecast is for sunny clear skies

Although I am feeling a little Buyers Remorse, as I always do laying out this kind of cash

Congratulations!

I picked up the bike this morning and everything went great, sun was shining and wasn't too cold. Bike covered up in the garage with 14 miles on the clock, need to wait for spring now for some serious riding.

Congrats! It's my favorite bike. The remorse will wear off quickly with a ride or two.

My black beauty is covered up in the garage with 14 miles on the clock, only done 7 miles and that was when I picked it up a couple of weeks back. The weather is far to cold and wet, and not to mention all that road salt. Can't wait to the spring though, seems a long way away

Spoole76, if you are at all like me, there will be daily trips to the garage to drool over your beautiful new T-Bird Storm. I'm trying to sell my 2010 America so that I can purchase a Storm in the spring. Meanwhile, I stop at the Triumph store periodically to drool in anticipation, just like a kid who can't wait for Christmas.
