Tail kit needs to be the first purchased mod for any Grom, it looks so much nicer without the stock tail.

I got an e-mail today from a Honda dealer in Arizona (I am on their list because we bought face shields there). In that e-mail, they said they had a Grom "on display - not for sale"; but they are taking deposits on orders.

Sounds like Honda isn't geared up for the demand. I was in that shop earlier this month - they had a new Forza on the floor at that time, but had only gotten one Grom (sold before it arrived) in and didn't know when they'd have another.

Closest thing to Grom content I've had.

The wife and I went to another rally today. It's called Rally de Los Muertos (http://rallydelosmuertos.com/). We decided to go on the long ride which took us to a local lake called Canyon Lake (about 50 miles away from San Antonio). I was sure I was going to be left behind but the Grom held its own and many people told me they were impressed by how quick it was (I was surprised too!). Sure, it's not the fastest uphill but I did just fine and we all had a blast. It was a very good group composed of several Vespa GTS Super, 2 PCX (including my wife's), a few Kymco scooters, several Hondas, 2 MP3s (one 250cc and one 500cc) and a very cool Vespa PX200 (2 stroke).

No pics, just really good memories.

That's impressive, especially since he's running a race pipe and everything.

You need neon yellow goggles now to match.

So, lets make this a tire thread. What tire do you suggest is best to wear a belly protectorate?
