Honda Grom

I don't know why but I've been looking at a lot of youtube videos and have read reviews and now I'm almost about to go to the dealership and get a Grom. Why? Hell I don't know because it looks so cool and fun to ride. For whatever reason when I see everyone having so much fun on the bike I just want to go get one. Do I need one.......No. Does anyone own one? Well my oldest daughter wanted to learn how to ride but I won't teach her on either one of my bikes and the wife wanted to learn how to ride as well.......So why not the Grom? Good excuse to get a new toy.

My only gripe with it is that I'm too folded up on it to be comfortable. I rode a friend's a few weeks ago and found myself standing up to stretch whenever we came to a stop. Then again I'm a 6ft mismatch of body proportions so that probably has a lot to do with it.

I have one. You will always be smiling while riding. Total mini hooligan, however very approachable and non-intimidating for beginners.
 
Get one you won't regret it.

Be prepared for, "Stop hogging my bike daddy!!" Ha! They are cool little bikes, a friend who almost died a few years back on his 900 RR and doesn't ride any more was afraid for me to get my FZ-07 and tried to talk into getting a Grom. I would've if the only riding I would be doing is around the neighborhood. He also pointed out this little bike, the Sachs MadAss which I like as well but again, not enough power for the highways. It appears it's discontinued now, too bad for some.

IKR! It's pretty basic/easy to work on and looks pretty cool as well. I figured someone might like it.

I'd love to get a grom for the winter months. Especially the scrambler concept.
We do get some nice days where you can ride around town a bit. They are pretty expensive here and I never see a used one for sale.
 
We have a deplorable selection of small motorcycles. Lots of 50cc scooters. The sixties were great years for small bikes. Wished I had a bearcat.

I am 6'2" and my legs don't fit in the "leg-grooves" in the side of the tank, but instead almost rest on top of the tank. It was a blast to ride and gets like 100mpg but if you are taller than maybe 6'0" then I can't see it being very practical for anything other than just screwing around occasionally lol

I picked up a Grom yesterday to play with over the winter. Its a baby 07 with a high fun-factor. It looks like a mini-bike but its fairly comfy with decent leg room. Goes pretty good. Will climb like a bugger. Went up high enough to find mountain goats today. I wouldn't want to go far on the highway although it will do about 55 mph on the flats. 150 kms for 5 bucks worth of gas!
 
It does have some annoyances: display is too dull in the daytime with no adjustment. Seat is tricky to remove and put back on. big honkin horn button where the signal light button should be.
