I'm pushing 40, about 142 lbs, married, never had a motorcycle, and all my elderly father-with-a-Honda-Goldwing says is "Don't get a bike," haha. Anyways, that awful Honda video for the Grom piqued my curiosity, and here I am. I looked up the engine size (125cc) -- so to go on a freeway in CA, it needs to be 150cc at least -- is that how it works? And then someone else told me to get at least 250cc for the freeway to have power to get out of the way if needed, does that sound legit? I'm just not sure if the Grom would make a good first bike? Should I start with something more middle of the road or a used item, and then perhaps move towards something Grom-like or sportbike-like? I have a penchant for unique things like the Grom. I'm sure there's already a ton of knowledgeable riders around here already, a little intimidating as a noob, haha.
