I saw a video of the Grom several months, maybe even quarters ago. I thought it was cool and reminded me of the YSRs I've owned in the past. Didn't act on putting my name on the list back then. Just looked into getting the Grom on Thursday, think I saw another vid on the line or something. Locally, they were a rip off. Wanted to charge $900 for dealer prep/freight. Kind of pissed me off. Was about to drive 1000 miles to get one from a dealer I found on ebay. Started calling down the list of Honda dealers from closest to the ends of the earth. Found one under 100 miles away and in black, just the one I wanted. Was amazed and lucky I found one. Loaded it in the back of my Honda Pilot and home I went. We'll short story long, I got home with the Grom last night. I took her for a spin this morning. I must be getting old or something, I did not feel that safe on it. Maybe because it's usually 100 degrees and it was about 70 with my tee shirt, jeans, and running shoes. Maybe because I did not wear a helmet on my neighborhood test run. It might have been the handlebars, or the seat.....or just me. At 40mph I felt like I was doing 100. Maybe I just need to get used to it. The older I get, the faster I was. It is a blast but sure did not feel like a YSR or NSR that I remember.
