The winner!

I got tired of waiting for a new modern big thumper from the big four, so this will have to do for now.

It's shiny and it's tiny.

Done any wheelies on the Grom yet? Saw a guy on one the other day, must be what I look like on a normal sized bike!

I will be out at Hemingway tomorrow if anyone wants to join. Late notice I know.

I've only rode it twice. 30 miles so far. I've popped a couple small ones and a couple of small stoppies. But I am definitely going to get them figured out. And they obviously aren't power wheelies. Clutching them up with a healthy yank is the only way. I rode 75 miles yesterday at the Oreana 100. Beautiful day for a race.

The next one is the Sand City 100 March 9th out a little further east of this last race. Then the National Hare & Hound is March 23 out at Rabbit Creek.

Looking to join you guys soon. I am in the process of searching for my next dualsport. Anyone know of anyone wanting to part with a WR250R/X or KTM 525 EXC?
