That bike will be sought after when you can't even buy gasoline anymore.
I like the California custom more, but yeah - I am biased against cruisers and even I think it is a sexy machine.

Hey, Viva La Difference! But, to me, that's a look only it's mother could love!
Even that glamour shot doesn't help.

Maybe you're seeing the "inner" beauty.

Ride one. After that you won't care if it looked like a Victory Vision.

I saw one of these in a parking garage today.

I looked around, saw no one, and did something I've never done before ... I sat on someone else's bike. I had to. I felt ridiculous on the little thing. And yet, I really kinda' liked it. Too bad I'd never be caught dead riding one .

Its a Transformer, right?
It makes a funny sound and then turns into an actual motorcycle, doesn't it?

Weld, my wife rides a Vespa and wants me to go on rides with her; I'm not a Vespa-rado, so I was thinking of getting this Grom 125... The youtube vids make it look like it's pretty fun...

Really wouldn't mind riding off into the sunset and taking fry cook jobs for food and gas money, sleeping under the stars, and not caring about anything else for a while.

Just sitting on one at the dealer made me want to laugh out loud with glee! I've seen those videos & it is the coolest toy I've seen in a decade. I'd like to see a 250 version of it but, it needs to stay as small as possible in order to retain it's character. I wouldn't drop the cash on one but, i don't blame anyone who does as it is obviously a hoot.
