I work from home 50-60% of the time, when I go into the office I usually ride my CRF250L, occasionally I ride my Thruxton...maybe once a week or so for the fun of it or on certain group rides.
For errands I take the CRF, strap stuff to the back fender, I also have a rear rack for it that I use frequently.
Pretty much unless it's pouring raining I ride my 250, with bad weather I either stay home or drive my Tundra.
When I get the Grom I will ride it everywhere at first then it will be similar to the Thruxton...ride couple times a week and on certain group rides. I have missed small sporty bikes since selling my Yamaha YSR50 and Ruckus.
my bike has 3k and i had it almost a year. its been a weekend rider, an occasionally i'll have spurts of 100mile weeks here an there when the roads are dry. i hate getting her dirty (12' cbr1000rr black).
the black 12' 1k and black 14' grom, will look pretty sick in my garage. both sporting hondas new spoke wheels... :big smile:
I ride year around here in Texas every day it isn't raining and it almost never rains. I rode just over 20,000 miles last year. I ride a Vespa 300, a Gixxer 1000, and a Zero S. Only about 1500 mi. a year each for my 2 cars.
good people because I want to change the handlebar and I would like your advice, I know that the two are almost the same but I do not know which of the two you see better, compatible and safe thanks people.
or if you can recommend a similar one that is better
I've Just ordered myself a Takegawa clutch cover, Takegawa Oil pump (from straight up pumps), and a Big oil cooler (didn't come with oil lines or fittings)
I'm planning on making my own lines but I don't know what size is appropriate?
Also If anyone knows what size banjo bolts come...
Has anyone looked into the anf125 as a cheaper option for a higher torque starter motor. Recently installed a 186cc bbk and the oem starter seems to not have enough to kick it over from time to time. 40 bucks sounds alot better then 130 for a starter.
I looking at upgrading the front forks and wondering how the feel is on the two. I have had racetech springs and dampeners rod on my last grom. They were good but hated the click I would get on compression. Does the ohlins click also?
