Figured i should stop trolling and make an introduction,

I picked up my grom last friday, drove 200 miles to get it

it pretty much was an impulse buy, i was in the market for a new bike, or rather wanting to add to my current garage

heres a few pictures of it loaded into my car(yes it fit)

After i rode it like 5 miles, i didnt like how the throttle felt, so i adjusted the slack in the cable...

TDM headlight, looks way more aggressive

TDM headlight output, straight cutoff, i put in a brighter bulb, so it should be better at night

main differences between the TDM and USDM headlights are circled, its missing the tab for the wire clip, and the smaller diameter lip for the headlight grommet

since i dont have a plate yet, and i have a tail eliminator kit on the way i figured what the heck, i have all the necessary paperwork to be riding without a plate so yea... man this thing is starting to look good

things left on the to-do list:
-finish breaking it in
-oil change(again)
-handle bars

that is all, waiting for parts is getting excruciatingly sucky

That is all for now, might poke my head in from time to time, but im pretty mechanically adept so most if not all the work can be done by myself, in case you didnt notice the big ass toolbox in the corner i used to be a tech, now im a product designer so they just sit getting rusty so i gotta keep busy

for those interested, that is a 2011 Ducati monster 796, with lots of goodies, it will be nice to not have to pay $1000 for any particular parts and glad the aftermarket support for these exist and has a good following already

Stop by and post up on a regular basis. Show us what mods you are doing.

I've had dozens of bikes but the little Grom is right at the top for fun.

I'm not a new rider by any means, this is my second new bike but I've had a bunch of bikes sprinkled in and another half dozen I'd like to claim as my own since I've put more hours into getting them running than the owners actually spent riding them
