Getting Ready to Take the Plunge
Hi all. I'm very close to buying a Triumph Thunderbird Storm. I'm looking at the Matte Black. I'm considering adding: Dresser Bars, Highway Pegs and Saddlebags. Do you guys have any watch-outs on the above? Any concerns on the dresser bar and pegs going into turns and scraping or is there enough clearance? I honestly like the look without saddlebags, but I want to use the bike and drive to work and feel that I can throw my computer, notebooks, etc. in and not worry about carrying a heavy backpack on my back. Any other accessories that I should be looking into? Any concerns on the Matte black paint and its upkeep? How much can I expect to negotiate on price? Sorry, for all the newbie questions, but I'd love to have your guys' help, so that I can join the club. Thanks in advance.
