Awesome Grom Qoute-
People that call the Grom a "" are morons. People that dont get mini motorcycles never will. People that do get mini motorcycles usually also own full size bikes and they will always tell you the minis are more fun to ride. You wont be unhappy with a Grom as long as you realize that it is a Honda mini - nothing more, nothing less.

Now I need a good set of dual sport tires for some off road action.
I love the Pro Taper bars on your Grom,
What model bars were they? Were they designed for a specific bike model?
I want to copy this when I buy mine.

Did it change the bar height or geometry? Thanks for the info BTW.

If anyone is interested in the difference between the stockers and the pro taper KLX/DRZ110 bars, see below.
Any 7/8" bars should work.

Thanks for the pic! That helps in a big way. Should be a good riding position. Still comfy but will be a little more aggressive.

The XR50 bars are a little taller than the klx110 bars. Just FYI.
