GromForum.com is a friendly community dedicated to the new Honda Grom motorcycle.

We hope to be the place to go to when you have questions about the Honda Grom, problems with your Grom, or just want to talk about it with others.
problems or would just like to discuss it in general.

To keep things friendly, we ask that you post up an introduction thread telling us a bit more about yourself, your current bike (if you have one!), your future bike plans which hopefully include the Grom :) and any other cars or boats or other cool toys you may have.

Please help us keep GromFrom a friendly place to be. Thanks!

Hey everyone, I've added a garage to put bikes up as well. so after you do an intro post, i suggest you also hop on to the garage (it's a link on the top) and put your bike in there.

Welcome to GromForum and we hope you like our forum as much as we do!

Long time Monster rider, and 8 month a year daily commuter (which is harder than it sounds in the Midwest). As amazing as the big bikes are, I would LOVE to have something fun and crazy economical for my daily commute...I just hope I can live with 125. Can't wait to check out a Grom at my local dealer!

Nice to see a forum for the Grom. Can't wait to see them in person, and hopefully own one soon. I fell into the Ruckus craze and am pretty sure the Grom will even exceed the Ruckus scene in time.

Hello, Grom Forum.

I'm still rather green when it comes to riding two-wheeled vehicles. But I have purchased low, repaired and sold high on two machines now (2003 Yamaha R6, and a 2005 Kawasaki Ninja 250R). I didn't keep them because I was unable to afford one right away.

My first experience with a motorcycle was with my father when I was about 6, living in Cheyenne, Wyoming on FE Warren Air Force Base. My father had a Honda CB900. He bought my brother and me a helmet, and we would ride to and from soccer practice. It was a blast. I remember being both scared and excited when we'd ride.

He sold the bike shortly before relocating to another Michigan. I remember crying as the buyer loaded it onto the trailer. I asked Dad if he'd get another one....

About two years later, Dad roles straddling a Kawasaki ZX-7R. I was in love again. At night, I would go to the garage, climb up, and pretend I was carving out a gorge scraping my knees. I could barely reach the pegs.

My brother and I would watch as Dad would race up the street in our neighborhood and pop wheelies and endos. Mom made him promise that he wouldn't do that again (at least not in front of us) as long as he owned the bike.

After joining the Air Force after High School, I was stationed up in Anchorage, Alaska. There, it wasn't uncommon for people to be riding street ready motards and dirt bikes alike. Me? I was stuck with an old Toyota pickup when off shift. I admit I was rather jealous. "Someday," I thought....

Years went by, and the bike-bug was dormant. I finished getting my degree after I left the service; there was a motorbike club at the school. I'd attend the group to various on-campus meetings never really getting too involved (seeing as there was a $25 fee to join), but just enough to wet my whistle.

But I couldn't take it any more.

I became obsessed with motorcycles all over again (mainly street bikes). I've studied riding theory, watched YouTube videos, researched DMVs in my area, found various ways to get a rider's endorsement in my state, subscribed to magazines, even got a small gig in a local garage...but was asked to leave on account that I was "daydreaming too much".

Funny how I've legitimately owned two motorcycles, and only have less than 30 miles riding experience. But when the motorcycle bug bites, it doesn't let go.

Glad to be part of this forum. I'm also a member of the Sportbike Network Forum.

This'll be great!

Thanks for having me.

Thanks for taking the time to read. Not a day goes by where I have a two-wheeled machine on my brain. Whether I hear them off in the distance, get next to them at an intersection, or just daydream about throwing my leg over one and riding off in the distance.

It's in the blood. I would start off by saying, "If I own a bike..." People would interrupt my and say, "WHEN you own a bike..."

The grin is from ear to ear.

Hello Y'all...I currently ride an 1100 Spirit. Getting ready to hop on in a few minutes. I got a glimpse of the Grom 125 and thought it would be great in lieu of a scooter for neighborhood short hops and light trail riding.

new to honda

I've had many different bikes but never come around to purchasing a honda. I have a grom on order here in Orem Utah and cannot wait to to slap on my yuminashi super bore kit. I've owned a KTM 450 EXC most recently and a couple kawasaki bikes. Im nervous about this grom though because I am 6'2" and about 220lbs. I'm so nervous that I'm actually trying to loose 30lbs by the time my bike arrives so I can tell if the bike will move me enough. Anyway, It's so nice to find out about this forum so I can document my super bore build and mods I have planned for the bike. Hopefully with your guys help I can get any input needed and hopefully wind up with an awesome minimotard!

Grom looks like a super fun little ripper. I once rode a 1977 KZ1000, built to beauty and speed until it ate 2nd and 3rd gears. Still need to crack that case. Now i have a more modern rocket with a 2004 ZX10r. Fairings eventually broke off, so it's a rat fighter—but she's still pretty.

Hello, I'm a rider from way back. My newest ride is a CBR250RA. I still like the '82 CM450c I restored and I take it to Vintage gatherings and camp outs. If you see me blowing down the expressway 90 or so in a full tuck, it would be on the CBR. Dan
