Looks like the more GROM's that roll in, everyone it touting their MPG's
Seems like people are getting around 100MPG to a tank, which is awesome!
Lets use this thread to compare fill-ups!
Search for the top case thread on the forum. A guy fitted a rear case already but he hasn't reported how it changed riding the bike. It would certainly lower your top speed though...That's awesome guys! You say that you've been riding them pretty hard, what have you maxed it out on? I assume these are only really safe for small towns or innercity driving? Wouldn't mind one to run the few miles to my work and back. Does anyone know if panniers and/or top case have been added to anyone's Grom?

So far tucked in with my airbox mod I've seen 66mph. I just started a thread about my recent highway riding here in Kansas City. Here's the video of it.

It would if you insisted on riding in the middle or passing lane. In the right-hand lane it would be perfectly safe at 55 mph. In fact, often around cities, you can't even go 55 mph due to congestion. Lots of slower drivers in the right lane...buses, big trucks, vans, old people, old cars....me. It's actually safer than that scenic country road with no passing, no improved shoulder, deer, etc. My experience is that people generally only remember the fastest leg of their commute. They forget about that bumper to bumper or stopped traffic....Austin, TX is a good example. Your average speed through Austin may be about 40 mph due to heavy stop and go traffic. A Grom would do just fine. The good news is the Grom gets up to speed nicely. The interstate would be fine here.I think I'd get run down on my commute on a grom. 66 mph would be dangerous around here.
