I just put down my deposit for the Grom so I figured it was time to quit creeping on the forums and actually join in. I'm in the Huntsville AL area and I'm going to drive 2 1/2 hours to get my bike from Honda of Chattanooga. I figure the 130 mile trip will be long enough for me to get a good feel of the bike. I actually learned about the Grom at SoWo (a car show in Georgia). I was talking to a couple of guys about getting a ruckus, they both had ruckus's, and they told me to check out the Grom. I've ridden bikes on the street since I was 14 (I'm 22 now) and I've never had anything as small as a 125cc. I've had a Lifan LF200, a CBR600rr, and a SV650. I was starting to look for a motard to get and then I found out about this. And it's much smaller than what I was actually looking for, but I'm not worried about that, the speed isn't as important as the experience. I'm eager to hop on and ride it. Now I have to start shopping for parts. First up is a fender eliminator and hopefully a projector light. I'm holding back on the exhaust for now until they develop a power commander or similar fuel tuning system.
