I have to say I like the rack but I am not sure about the top box. I think it's a bit out of proportion with the rest of the bike.

Moriwaki makes a pretty sweet exhaust for the Grom:

That top box is HUGE. Great if you need to carry a lot of stuff though.

I think the rack is just enough. And it looks good too.

I just ordered a complete set of white plastics for mine (they were out of yellow). They should be here a month before the bike gets here .

Since I ordered a red bike, I may mix and match colors to see what I can come up with. There are three seperate plastic pieces on each side, plus the front fender to play with. Could be cool.....

I don't understand why so many people are excited about a little 125cc bike. What can you do with it?

Exactly the same thing you can do with any other motorcycle - have a sense of freedom and uniqueness. People that don't get small bikes, never will. People that do get small bikes, usually own several larger bikes too and they will always tell you the small ones are more fun to ride.

same things you do with a small cc scoot -- tear around urban areas, where agility and light weight make for far more fun than speed

That's a great idea!
What does a set of plastic cost?
I prefer yellow too but that won't stop me from buying another color.
Vinyl wrap is getting less expensive after all and it protects the parts from sun damage.

And while we're on the subject, how does anyone keep a baseball hat on when riding a motorcycle?
