I got a Grom

Got it from Honda of Houston. They made everything really easy for me.
The only thing I've done to it so far is get rid of the fender and replace it with integrated lights on the license plate. Hopefully i'll have an exhaust on it soon and some other mods shortly after. My ZX10 got stolen last year so it feels good to get back on two wheels, even its just on a 125.

Not sure I like the way the Yoshi sounds, but it is the best looking of the bunch.

My wife is 5'4ish and she touches the ground pretty easy. I wanted to get it so that she could learn to ride, and eventually move onto something bigger. It gets something like 100mpg also.

Nice pickup! I've been wanting one of these since they came out, never found a used on in my price range. They look fun to ride. Keep her safe from thieves.

5'4"?!? She's a giant.

I guess I'll be sticking with my SV forever. Haha

The bike is very tiny. I think i can probably lift it too.

Congrats on ur new purchase. We had 2 guys in our group on sat with groms so we took the street instead of the freeway. And i can't help but wanting to "protect" them from evil cars. Lol.

Realistically, around 60. That being said highest speed I ever saw on my speedo was 66. I was almost constantly being ran over on the highway. It's a dangerous combo, being so small and having no passing power. But in a parking lot or city street, or neighborhood they're a blast.
