No doubt they are cool now that we know that the fastest man around the TT circuit has one.

Stolen from Bootlace's Manx GP thread in Racing.

The Honda Grom is doing some great fuel economy numbers.

I rode my wife's PCX all week but I will be riding my Grom tomorrow. I can't wait to see what it's going to feel like after riding the PCX for 4 days. One thing is for sure: my butt ain't gonna like it.

Grom always draws a crowd. I had a couple of people at lunch asking me about the bike. Visually, the bike is definitely a hit.

Went riding for a bit, found some new roads. I was partway through a tank and filled up early on, 92mpg. Then less than I mile from home I filled up agian so I would be ready with a full tank next ride. Got 102 mpg.

It's opening up a bit more each ride. Easier pull to 55 mph, went 68 mph down a 1/4 mile stretch of a hill. There was more hill and more rpm's but the car in front of me was slowing down for a car turning so I eased off.

Stopped at a local famr and picked up some apple cider donuts, apples, and hard cider.

With a couple other things in my backpack it weighed 15 pounds on the last leg of the ride. Time for a rear rack.

I went all the way around Lake Waramug for no reason, came back out the same road (Flirtation Ave). https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Lake+...+Waramaug&z=14

The "From" forum? Looks like a victim of auto correct.
Every time I try to type "Grom" on my iPhone, or in the Mail program on my Mac, it automatically changes it to "From.".

JerryH must have nailed it. They all died from getting run over or they quickly tired of their bikes.
