They agree with most of us that Honda has hit a home run.

Looks like I am going to have to pick up cycle world this month.

How did you get your copy of Cycle World so fast? It's not at the bookstore yet.

There are several people on the Grom Forum who have taken delivery of their Grom.

Should be just a few more days for mine I hope.

The September issue has been on the shelves in the BX on the base I work on for about a week.

The guy in the white T-shirt and shorts is clearly hitting the throttle as the shutter closed. Also known as passing gas.

Well I just picked up 2 of them on Friday.
Already got over 100 miles on them.

They are a great little bike.
No they are not a fast bike.
No they are not a dirt bike.
No they are not a world crosser (well not yet...)
But boy are they fun to ride.

They look awesome! I really like the white one. I am still waiting for mine. I think it should be here by next weekend.

Congrats on the purchase!

I went down to the powerhouse Monday, and they had already sold every Grom they had for the first two months.

Elvis on a Cell Phone? Before there were such things? Proof that he is with the Aliens now.

I have to admit my attitude is changing about the Grom, based on your enthusiasm for the machine you folks have expressed.

A Honda dealer up in farm country about 75 miles from here is advertising a black Grom on CL. Might have to head that way tomorrow or so and go look at it...
