I swapped my first Storm for a cruiser as I am quite a shorty, but found myself wanting another, so once I had a Harley sitting in my garage it was time for a second bike for work, I bought a Speed 4 but found that Triumph yet again wanted £600 to service the bike, so I swapped it for my storm, and I'm glad to have another.
The Storm isn't perfect, you need to change the Cam chain tensioners ASAP, sometimes the original last years, sometimes not, but when they do go, the pistons meet valves and its an expensive fix, the cure is manual cam chain tensioners, which take a couple of hours and with the instructions from Vtr1000.org you can permnantley fix this potential engine in bin experience.
Also the regulator should be changed if it isnt a finned version as Smooth Honda version burn out and leave you stranded by the road.
What can i say about this bike, well it handles good, the engine is really nice, and unlike other Honda motorcycles has character, I love the look of the bike and for the money its a lot of bike.
My only moan is the storm can be heavy around town in low speed.
So if you on a budget and want a big bike then the storms a good contender, just get those cam chain tensioners done or find one already done.
