Default Getting My Grom Soon!

Hey everyone. New to the forum.

Just pulled the trigger on buying a new 2017 Grom.

A bit new to the riding world, so I thought it would be a good idea to sign up here.

Looking forward to asking some questions and just learning more about the bike.

Hope I won't be asking too many maintenance questions

pretty good starter bike. if you're heavier than a child, please do the front springs. they bottom so easily it's dangerous

Thank you for that.

I was going to ask what type of child are we talking about... but I think I will just do the springs to be safe.

Don't be afraid of the forks. I'm 5' 10" 185lbs and I haven't bottomed out the front forks a single time. Just ride normally, anticipate your stops, and you'll be fine. Sure, an upgrade wont hurt, but as a beginning rider you need to be concentrating on the fundamentals and forming good habits. Coming in super hard into stops enough to bottom out the forks (except in an emergency) is just bad practice. Be safe, have fun, and enjoy your new Grom!!!
