H@ly Sh17!

I just picked up a Grom from JR over at Stubbs. Let me start of by saying that hes a great guy and a forum sponsor. Any one looking to get on a HD, Honda, or Suzuki should give him a ring.

SO yes. Back to the GRoM. I had a 25 mile ride back home. And I honestly cant remember the last time I had a fun 25 mile commute. The grom is awesome. Light weight, very comfortable, Wheelies pretty well (don't void my warranty JR!), over all just a blast to ride.

Many times I found myself chuckling in my helmet.

she now has 28 miles on the clock... and Im gonna go put some more on there :P



THanks JR!

Don't expect to pay under MSRP. Stubbs has them priced at $3,200. Which from my understanding leaves almost no room for profit. So I paid $3200.

I also ended up getting the extended warranty. Because the motor is only 124cc's the extended 7 year warranty was only 300$. So I added that on at $3500.

Chris, I think I will ride it to the central meet. That's gonna be a long ride. hahaha.
