Your Grom looks bitchen and cool looking with the stretch and I like the low mounted exhaust.

Keep up the great build/mods and ride safe

Blue LED mod on the speedo.. my iphone will not take a pic of what it actually looks like but lets just say it looks awesome.. :D

BlueRidge, thank you for an actual picture of a Grom in its crate. As you can see, the bike is fully assembled, except for mirrors...next time a "Dealer" - >interesting that when I was a kid I also ran into "dealers"<, tries to explain to you how the "Assembly" charge in a new bike costs $600.00, explain to them that in some countries they chop off people's hands for stealing.I understand micro and macro economics, well I have a degree in Finance, but I don't think Honda USA would approve of the current practices. If they do, I may go buy a Yamaha....I know they make great pianos....call this a brant and yes, I am venting but come on....50% premium on anything above MSRP means you should pass...

yah.. someone posted today that they went to buy a grom at a dealer.. but was struck down when he offered $3500 and they wanted $4000... that is crazy.. mine was 3250 OTD including tags..taxes.. fees.. there is no setup really except putting on mirrors and making sure it runs.. wash it.. inspect it.. done..

I need a favor from you.. can you get a good side shot of your grom with the case on... i am going to photoshop it onto my grom to see what it will look like :D

I found that one can also use the box as a mobile cooler. Fill it with ice and the beverages of your and your buddies' choice and voila! I have already had a lot of "big box" comments....glad I didn't do for the 50l box....;)
