I am a 5'6 110 pound girl. Something that I have always wanted to accomplish is learning to ride. I've been a passenger on bikes before and absolutely loved it. I can only imagine how much better it is being the driver. My friend tried to teach me on his CBR 3 years ago. That bike was huge and intimidating. It was so intimidating that I fell off of it when it was only going 1mph lol (it started to lean and I got scared. I think it stalled and jerked me off) I tried taking the basic rider course after that, but on riding day (day 2) it was raining and cold and I was really scared. I ended up leaving soon after trying to ride. It was just too scary for me and I kept getting the feeling that I'm going to fall again. My friend recently told me about the Grom, and after reading about it, it seems like my dream of riding again may come true after all. For people that own a Grom, is this a good first bike to learn on? It seems to be light and small and would be perfect for me. Thoughts?
