Wicked First TAT?

Who is going to be the "first" Grom to ride the entire Trans-America Trail?

It would be a blast to have a Grom Group ride the TAT together

Maybe even pull a mono-wheel trailer behind for the gear.

picked my black grom up today... put 50 miles on it so far, and aside from hills, this thing is a blast!

in the showroom:



in my truck:



first ride:



first donut:


i was blasting down some dirt roads, and aside from needing some stiffer fork springs, this handles quite well.

Stopped by the local Honda shop, no Groms to be seen.

The salesgirl said they had gotten two Groms in, one pre-sold, the other gone in a week. Next shipment is due December/January timeframe.

Went for a ride with the wife today. It's amazing the attention I get riding the Grom. Seems like a lot of people want to know more about it.
