    Absidia’s Adventure Grom Build

    This is the start of my adventure Grom build. I quickly realized how versatile this little bike is, from loading it in and out of my truck to just about any terrain in a reasonable fashion. Then is struck me, why not build it into a little adventure bike? So far just some Maxxis Tires and Chimera intake. Does 55 on the flats and 60-63 in a tuck. Up next, some electrical work, paint and custom removable luggage racks. Fuel economy seems a bit low, 75-85 on a tank, but that may be due to my riding style.

    I forgot to mention I upgraded to a Corbin seat pretty much immediately. Way more comfortable and can sit way back for a tuck of stretch.

    If you want to trim off 4 pounds of weight from your adventure bike for free, I highly recommend the stock exhaust mod. The engine hardly sounds any louder, just a little more deep and mellow, and you don't have that big can hanging off the side of your bike.

    I think I'll give that a shot! That has been part of my quandary over exhausts, don't want anything more hanging down. This seems like it will so well for now!
