I see snow but a clean sidewalk, did you get to put at least couple miles on it?

Yep, I went on a post office run and have 14 miles on it now. But it's snowing hard right now and we are supposed to get several inches by Saturday night. It puts a smile on my face and I noticed it has the same effect on others as I ride by.

Congratulations! Those are pretty cool.

Have any of you Grom owners raised that front fender a bit? I'm thinking of my old CT70 look.

Installed a battery tender lead on my battery yesterday for charging. Managed to sneak the wire through a body panel after loosening it and then fed the wire underneath the battery strap to make it nice and neat.

I would have sold all of the pieces off of it and kept the frame for purposes of titling the Super Cub.

I'd love to have one, and am waiting for used ones to hit the market near me (yes, I'm cheap).

They aren't cheap right now. I think it's a bubble that will burst. Dealers are WAY over charging right now. Some dealers in the area are now asking $4,500 OTD. That's insane! Guys like me who had their fun for a little while are able to sell them back and (almost) come out even. But it won't last. Once they start sitting on the showroom floor for a while, prices will come down. Once prices come down, the resale value will drop too - it's the waiting game.

Anyways, it's all good. I had some real good fun and now I'm looking forward to my next ride.
