I know that Starbucks.

I got about 65 miles in on the Grom today. Going to rain tomorrow, but I hope to get some more mileage in on Friday and Saturday, hopefully some GoPro video too.

Check out this Craigslist add for a Grom on the Big Island of Hawaii where I live. Bikes are more here, but Geebus!!

http://honolulu.craigslist.org/big/mcy/4181761486.html



Guess I could buy all I can find from the main land, ship them here, and make oodles of money (a joke).

We are experiencing some incredibly beautiful weather: low in the upper 60's and high in the mid 80's. Gotta love November in Texas.

Anyway, I took advantage of the weather and rode the Grom to work. I hit 61 mph on flat and I felt I could have squeezed out a couple more mph. The pegs were buzzing a lot but handling was unaffected. I really feel the motor is a little stronger now.

What do you have on it for miles now gore-tx? I'm at 750 miles and I'm still gaining a little bit more each time I ride.

tdub200 is faster and more offroad capable then the grom. grom is an injected mini motorcycle with scooter tires.

50% higher MSRP on the Yamaha vs the Grom. Of course, some would say it is at least 50% more bike.

I wouldn't sell the tdub. Just wanted to know if getting a grom would be too similar.
