Hello grom forum!

I am very excited that Honda has taken an interest in introducing a plated funbike in the US market. I currently ride a modified 1st gen SV650, but I've owned many other bikes in the past including a Honda F4i and Hurricane. Can't wait to see this little guy in person!

I do classic car restorations, mostly Alfa Romeo.

My love for bikes ebbs and flows. Sometimes I get on a big bike kick and want to do a ton of bike stuff (recently built a Yamaha FZR400 with a 600 motor and custom streetfighter stuffs for a friend) and other times I want to do more car stuff (right now have a CooperS, Miata, and Alfa GTV in the stable).

My SV is set up nicely with front fork cartridge emulators, a penske rear, 2g cam swap, and full m4 exhaust. I would love to do a GSXR front fork swap (I had done it on a previous SV and loved the swap) but don't have the $$'s right now. But it wouldn't be any use posting pics, looks pretty much stock! Here's a photo of the FZR I built for my friend though:

You know, I've been trying for years to settle into a two car, two bike arrangement. Daily driver, project; daily rider, project. Right now I have one too many cars, so I'll have to get rid of one before I even consider a second bike. It can be a bit hard to justify a bike like the grom, since it has a limited function, but that's also how I felt about the Miata and I do EVERYTHING with that car....
