New t-bird storm!!!

I just got a new t-bird storm ABS today!!! I wanted to take some time out and thank you guys on this forum because you did play a part in my decision. I did a lot of research and test rode a lot of bikes before doing this because I wanted a great bike that didn't have any compromises. I can remember when I first got a harley sportster back in 06 and after my first real ride I was very dissapointed in the bike. Today after my first real ride on the triumph other than the demo rides I couldn't be happier. This bike just outshined harley, victory, and the metrics. Thank you all and I will see you around.

Congratulations! She's a beauty! I know that I love mine more every day. Be careful on that gravel you're parked on.

Now you know. For me that feeling of a new bike and the enthusiasm to ride hasn't gone away like with other bikes I've had. Congrats.

Very nice ride - I have the plain 1600 model. Thinking of putting the BB kit in on my 12K service...sure would be nice to test ride one first to know what I was getting.

Nice ride!!

Thats the key. Take your time and test ride them all! I did exactly that and the Thunderbird was actually the last bike I tested. I knew immediately I wanted it but went back and tested the others some more and thought about it for about a week and a half before actually pulling the trigger. Like you I wasnt disapointed when I went for my first long ride on it and every ride since only re-affirms my choice was the right one, for me that is.

Excellent Choice! I've had mine for just over a year. Just ticked over 5k on the odometer w/ no issues so far. Hope you have the same good fortune, and the same ****e eatin' grin!!!
