At 71, I'm feeling long in the tooth for welcoming a new baby to the house, but here she is:

My wife started to learn to ride with a vintage Honda CB125 (kick start only; I told her that kick start was good for learning clutch/throttle control), then a 1989 Honda VTR250, and a 2001 Kawasaki Ninja 250 — both of which were really too big for her to handle with confidence. Enter the Grom. I hope she is able to bond with it; if not, I may have a baby hooligan bike to play with.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

I was amazed when Honda put these out, such a perfect little track side toy

Sweeeeet......I've ridden one on a few occasions and would love to pick one up someday. I don't fit nearly as well as you will, but it was still a hoot to ride. I keep watching prices locally, and WOW do they hold their value. Our local dealers can't keep them in stock

GROM...?

WTF is a Grom?

As Woody Guthrie says, Left wing, right wing, chicken wing.I keep my mind open. Whatever you believe, its all a mystery in the end.

Honda 125cc motorcycle. Been out 2 years? It's become a popular bike to mod and do some racing on.
