We went out and clocked about 20 miles on our Grom/ PCX. We had a blast! The Grom performed flawlessly and my wife really enjoyed her PCX. I am currently at 65 miles on the odometer. I have a ride with a friend tomorrow morning: city streets all the way to downtown.
Here are a couple of shots from this evening:

My lovely wife. Somehow, she gets a lot of attention on her scooter...


My ride fits just about anywhere


Oh, and the pizza was pretty good too!

I think the white one looks the best. Great mods on your Grom. It looks really sharp.
Where did you buy your plastics?

Yes. She's 5ft tall and barely 100 pounds. I'm twice as big as she is! Lol

I saw one on the road last night. Very cool, fun in an urban setting. I would consider one in the future, we will see. Looked good in red.

Test rode one today!

I will be in possession of one as soon as I can get a few bills sorted out.
It was a short ride but made the point. It will not be a replacement for anything, but it will be a very fun addition.

I just came back from my ride. We had a blast! Yes the ruckus is slower than the Grom but it was fun all around. I clocked in a little over 60 miles and they were all city miles.

I had my first fill up. It came out to 114 mpg. I am real happy with it. I get about 90 on the wife's PCX. I am curious to see if I will stay in that range.

Couple more observations:

- top speed is quite low so far. I can get to 50 mph pretty quickly but getting beyond 50 mph take some time. I only achieved 56 mph. It won't go faster at this point. Given the horsepower, it's not surprising but still, 60 mph would be nice.

- my butt hurts. That damn seat! I guess I'm just too used to the PCX.

- the riding position gives the rider great balance at low speed. I will often come to a stop and I won't put my feet down. Nice.

- the Grom turns faster than a Ruckus! I'm starting to wonder if anything turns faster than this thing.

Oh, and we went to Lulu's Bakery. Home of the 3-pound cinnamon roll. (yes everything is bigger in Texas)

Patience, once the engine losens up a bit it should get to 60 - there are clips on youtube showing Groms doing about 62-65.
