    The start of the 7000 dollar money pit

    new here guys figured what the hell id start a build thread. I bought a 2014 grom about a month ago with 120 miles on it and now has 1300. I'm having a blast with this little thing. ive had many different bikes though out my life. i did land speed racing and drag racing even set a few records and am a 200mph club member. I still own street bikes dirt bikes mini bikes and even a 250 shifter kart. my life has always been around motorcycles and continues to this day as I build custom motorcycles for a living. now I just need to figure out how to post a picture so that I can start this thread lol

    It's not a money pit, its a learning curve on how to make a little motorcycle fast.

    I have lots of motorcycles and a few fast ones and one or two custom motorcycles but I have never had any attention about my motorcycles as much as I have with the Grom, maybe I did when I got the first 1999 Hayabusa back in 99.

    Congrats and ride safe

    OK, well, now I don't like you. I mean, I do, 'cause that's cool as hell. I guess I'm more along the lines of peanut butter and jealous than I am in out right dislike for you. I love my job, but I wish it was slightly different and involved bikes and not cars. Lucky bastard.... Although I know it's not luck.

    Anyways, now that the awkward love/hate part is out of the way, I'm curious to see what you build now. I'm torn between making mine a track bike or a cool looking street bike.
