    I feel guilty...

    So I ride my Grom a lot. Most miles are racked up around town and on the back roads. Yesterday I decided to ride the Grom to my girlfriend's house, which is about an hour and a half ride, and is mostly highway. In hindsight, keeping the bike at 1-5 mph under rev limiter for over an hour was probably not a good idea...She did great though!lol It can't be good for these little motors to be so revved out for so long. Thoughts?

    Swartzie, not Pa.lol Elkton, md. Oh trust me, I'm a firm believer in Honda, I just get paranoid.lol Truth be told, if the motor blows, it just means I've got an excuse to throw in the Yuminashi kit sitting next to my desk at work....lol

    All that aside, I was actually kinda proud of it when I got back. Bouncing off rev limiter, and still purrs like a kitten.lol

    WOT on 3000 mile trip, basically redline for 8-10 hours a day with short stops for gas. Grom is fine and can handle it no problem.
