Big Island would be a great place for riding the Grom. There are good roads on the Hilo side, South Point "Kau", Kona side, Waimea side. Since the price of gas is really high on the Islands compaired to the Mainland the Grom fits a nitch. The only problem you'll have with the Grom is that the tires are so small and they then to slide on a sloping roadway when wet. What I mean is such as in Northern Calif the roads are designed as such that there is a center high spot on a road and it slopes towards the curve or far right side of the roadway as to get the rain water off the road and these smaller tires then to sort of slide towards the edge of the road, this has happened to me when I use to ride a YSR-50 mini-motorcycle. So I assume that the tires for these Grom have better rain design since Thailand and the Far East has had theirs before the USA and other countries get them. Going back to the Grom in the Hawaiian Islands, I assume a few surfers will try to design a rack or motorcycle trailer to carry their short surfboard, skimmer board and other equipment such as fishing gear, spear gear or even scuba gear. If I do get my Grom in San Jose Calif and all my mods on the MC work and the horse power is increased and work ok, then I would buy a second Grom and mod it in San Jose and send it to Hilo so that my brother or sister can store my Grom so when I go home on vacation I have a motorcycle to ride. I don't care about the Harley fad, I just need a MC so I can go to Spensor's gym or the farmers market in downtown Hilo or if I want to go swimming at 4 miles or what ever I have a mc to ride on

So I was searching for Grom stuff last night and found a video on the Ruck. Clicked on it and it was two girls and a guy in Hawaii (I think). They all rented Rucks and went on this pretty epic 24 hour adventure. Looked like total fun. Made me want a Ruck and made we want to go to Hi. Some day I'll get there.
