Diversion to Firestorm

Post by Cousid » Sat Dec 01, 2018 5:05 pm

Hello everyone,
Just joined your Website and wanted to say hello, I recently retired and bought a Yamaha Diversion which has been good for the past two years.
Recently I had been looking for a bike that would tick all my boxes, this turned out to be a 2001 Firestorm in Blue Metallic. I still have not stopped smiling.
My intention is to do all repairs and servicing myself, I think that your website will be great for sharing information, and general bike chat.
Looks like I will also be a good petrol station customer.
I have attached photo,
Bye for now,

Looks very clean!

I'm constantly amazed at the number of these bikes, many now approaching 20 years old, that are kept in such good condition.

Welcome, if I can say that as a noobie as well. Bought my Storm Oct 2017 to replace my Commando due to be sold. Yes I miss the old girl after 20 yes but the Storm is a whole lot more fun. On mileage, if you ride like I do and don't squirt it all the time 48 mpg is my usual. 150 miles and I fill up. Enjoy.
