What about the shorts?
I could tell you about the shorts, but then you'd have to bleach out your brain! :eek1
Me to.I'm currently wearing mine and the mirror tells me no,try again after a face lift and body transplant.
My mind is in her's.

Oh, and I'm going for a ride this weekend.

Can you buff grass stains out of the finish? Seems to me that there was some "over the line" riding... fortunate to run off the right side, rather than get splatted while crossing the double yellow.
A whole lot of "over the line" riding. I sure hope I'm not coming along in the opposite direction when these guys are out riding.
Anybody looking for a Grom without getting butthurt by a dealer, I'm parting ways with mine. <sniff> See link for the scoop.
Has anyone off roaded a Grom yet?
Not me and not planning to. I'm babying mine. And I will keep it stock too.
There seem to be a few.

I did take mine up a mostly clean dirt road I travel often in CT (Old Waterbury turnpike) about 3 miles. Only felt comfortable doing 20 mph give or take.
On the KLX I had I would ride it 30 mph in the dark.
Just the size of the wheels and soft suspension mine isn't goign to go on many more dirt roads.
I went for a ride yesterday - it was 82 degrees in San Antonio . Well, for the first time, I found my Grom to be slow. May be it's because I haven't ridden it in a while or may be it's the course my wife and I chose. It was a lot of hills and the Grom struggled. I had to keep it in 3rd gear to stay high in the rev range and close to 45 mph. In 4th gear the poor thing couldn't do any better than 40 mph. Yes it's up hill but I was disappointed anyway. My wife kept blasting past me on her PCX even without trying.
If I remember from the pics you posted, she is petite and will destroy you with a major power to weight ratio advantage.
I remember when I first got my Aprilia it was a few mph faster on the top end. I gained 30lbs and it dropped a few.
Working on diet and exercise to get my speed back!
I saw those videos but was looking for a little more dirty.
I think a TW200 would be a better choice for off road adventuring.
It weird, my 950 sucks in whoops, my XR is terrible at MX, and I hate commuting on the Husaberg. My GROM rules on the tight twisties though.
I'm no fan of the Grom, and way to big for it, but one thing it does have going for it is a manual transmission, with, I'm assuming, a pretty low first gear. Which should mean it would climb just about anything while keeping the engine rpms in the powerband. If I could fit on it, I have little doubt it could climb up any mountain in N.A. even with my weight on it. It would be slow going, but would not overstress the motor if kept in the right gear. I would like to see someone ride one up Pike's Peak.
It has no shortage of first gear, for sure. We've got some some pretty steep mountain roads around here, and while i haven't done offroad with it I've ridden some grades I couldn't pull my travel trailer up. More worries about riding down than up, actually :)
Europe is already getting new color schemes for this year (painted wheels and dark blue body panels). Can we at least get a yellow up in here?
I want the white panels
