Let's add to the list. A total of 9 employees here at Cycle Shack North have purchased Grom's in the last few weeks. I agree with Photographer, lets get a Motohouston Grom Ride 2016 scheduled.

yeah!
Personally, I'd like to do some hopping around in town with some pre-determined stops so people from different parts of town can join in along the way.
Didn't get a Grom to do some long- country rides.

anybody looking for a cheap grom

$2700 w/ some nice mods

http://www.hondagrom.net/forums/24-g...00-3000-a.html

"Recently graduated college and got a job so I'm looking to make some vehicular changes in my life. Unfortunately, that includes selling the Grom . Here's a list of all the mods I've done to the bike:

Werkes Comp Exhaust and Silencer
Integrated Tail Light
MNNTHBX FE
CRG End Mirror
LSL Race Pegs

I also have all the stock parts and would revert it to stock if that's preferable. The bike only has 971 miles on it and I'm the first owner. I would like $2700 with the mods or $2500 stock. (If you buy it with the aftermarket parts you get the stock parts as well. If you have any questions or want any specific pictures let me know."

Random Grom pic snapped last weekend while cruising around on my buddy's property.
Plastics are off with my buddy being wrapped in matte OD green.
Will post pics when I get them mounted...

I saw 4 Grom riders together on Memorial and Chimney Rock so I assume that must be a Houston group.

Will the functionality of my grom be affected if I remove the silencer from my Werkes exhaust?
