Well I got the bars and tail tidy installed, now I need more fuses before I can trouble shoot the turn signals.

After a very brief ride around the neighborhood I'd have to say the pro taper kx high bars are pretty awesome. Still comfortable, maybe a tad wider, but looks good and has a little sportier feel.

it was a lot of drafting from another grom. im 100% stock as well, but the drafting was a huge part without question. the ride today was awesome

when the grom's separated from another ride and went on to 3090, it got really aggressive.

a lot of same lane passing including at several times 3 bike wide in same lane in a corner.

a lot of drafting was used to pass other grom riders up to about 6-12 inches from front tire to the other riders rear tire. including in corners .

the bike to bike or rider to bike contact caused some damage. not too bad, my license plate got torn off after i closed a apex on another rider and their front wheel hit my rear at 70mph.

also i tried to split between two riders in the same lane by shoving my bike between them while accomplishing the pass the handle bars hit another rider pretty hard causing both of us to get severe head shake but we kept riding hard.

hit the killswitch on a couple of the riders causing the motor to die

several wheelies, burnouts, endo's, rear tire sliding, tucking, and a great time

So I've already windowed shopped all day for Grom parts and I have decided on the following:

1. Tripage LED integrated light
2. Targa FE kit
3. Akrapovic exhaust
4. Ohlins rear shock (eventually)
5. Ohlins front internals (eventually)

Debating the Hotbodies flushmount turn signals... I might prefer the stock look over these.
