    First "long" ride on the new 2015 grom

    What's up guys I'm 6'6 190 lbs
    Just took the grom out today on my first "long" ride about 50+ miles. Only 93 miles on the bike.

    It was a blast into the wind ( probably 20 mph wind) is was still able to hit 55 without red lining it. One way its a 20 mile trip with speed limits from 40 to 55 mph. loose a lot of speeding going up big hills tho but I expected that. By I had a lot of fun on her. Once I got into town it was easy to throw it around and get where I needed to go, Acceleration is great. Town riding is just really fun on it just kinda scarry on crowded streets on a little bike.

    I got this as my wife and I first bike so she could learn to ride before I get my hog. And also as a toy for when my son gets older. I love it....

    Did take it out once before with 40 mph winds and I wouldn't advise anyone doing it. Had a hard time reaching 45 mph and you just get blown all over the road..

    Let's hear your guys stories!

    I did 120 miles on my grom when I first purchased it. Fun experience, but the ride was very uncomfortable.
