You could also bore the GROM out to 250cc as well.

I think the GROM is overall a better bike.

Like you said they usually run those things wide open. I don't think that'll be the case for the GROM.

8HP Shop-Vac Pro
8HP Metro MB-3 Blower
9HP Honda GROM??

Dirtbike wheels usually dont match. Larger front and smaller rear for getting over obstacles

Single-shock XR's are tail-draggers any way. It should have 14/16 wheels.

That was a little tight, but gives you a basic idea of what our parking lot racing looks like. We use a lot fewer barriers, and don't have any sort of organization, but that looked like it was part of a larger event.

I'll see if I can find any video of our parking lot events, and see if there's any onboard from one of the big tracks we run with WERA.

A couple of the guys messing around on the TTR's. Aside from just plain being a blast to slide around, they are great training tools for the bigger bikes.

I think that this was the day that Opie (Chris Caylor) was trying to get "backing it in" through to the guys. It's hard to teach on a big bike, but there's very little consequense for getting it wrong on the little guys.

I'm not sure the Grom will translate as well with the little wheels, but it might be an even better tool...
