Way to go! Logic and reason has no business in the purchase of a motorcycle!

I'm still undecided if I should splash an extra 300 for the carbon exhaust that was on the demo bike tho

The Grom is so odd looking you can tell the Police that you are just learning to ride and just getting the hang of it.
That's why wheelies and stoppies happen

I still haven't seen one in person, the few the local dealer gets are always pre-sold and picked up the minute they are assembled.

Like I need another bike...
I don't have enough time to ride the bikes I have now.
Only the street tracker and the DR650 this afternoon.

But the Grom makes me smile when I see the pictures of it.

Unfortunately, if you're in the UK and just learning, you have to stick a big red L sticker to the front and back of your bike. Can't really get away with that excuse here

T minus 5 days


Good stuff, I look forward to your thoughts with it

I've got it. My first thought is 'It definitely needs the loud exhaust that I didn't buy. It sounds like a sewing machine'

Other than that, it's ace.

I have had the itch for a CT-70 or the Chinese clones of old Honda monkey bikes. This is the modern day rendition.

Now if Suzuki would get an RV-90 modernized and to market I would be ready to go!

NC and Grom in the same garage (can't tell what the 3rd bike is) is a little slice of heaven right there!
