Martin, the Storm is a good looking bike. It has the big bore kit and handles pretty good for a cruiser. Somehow I don't picture you as a cruiser guy.

The rocket is a bit too bulky IMO. Great motor and chassis but a bit cumbersome for me.

My legs and back will thanks me. I'm also considering other bikes: Triumph Tiger 800, BMW RT/GT bikes, and FJR/C14.
