An interesting Freudian slip (?) that only an unreformed Googleholic would find.

Oddly, the name of the restaurant has nothing to do with the once-popular author of the same town!
Might have to go check it out if I ever go to New York again. Thanks for letting me know his last name was misspelled :P

Hey nothing wrong with googling random things, just think 20 years ago people had to use books to find stuff. Now we are a click and a few keystrokes away.

We have one as a demo machine at the safety course I teach. The thing is a bloody riot, so much fun.

Would love to take the MSF class on this. Would pass with flying colors! Hell this thing makes U-turns in its own lane.

I want a aftermarket exhaust because the bike is soooo quiet. After having the husky I realized how sexy dual exhausts are though. Money constraints force me to wait for a while though....As for the fender I just pulled it off and mounted it under the taillight.

This thing is stupid fun to ride. I would highly recommend this more as a toy than a sole motorcycle though... Rode my cbr250r for 19k miles and never had the urge to do any type of stunt... less than 1k into grom ownership and its getting hard to keep the stunt bug away.

A groom on 'high speed', eh, tires ;-)

This can happen, even to a CBR!

The Grom's that come my way are not Road Bikes......


They are made for lane splitting in Heavy Traffic and they are called: MSX125's. Honda can't make these fast enough and people by the droves are exchanging the CBR for these little creations!


Brakes: As MotoMike said, the rear brakes have to bead in before they will lock up, and believe me they will! The Issue is the front brakes and an owner need not change the calipers, but a new disc and Pads are mandatory!


This will then lend itself to another issue......... Although they utilize USD Forks Honda decided to use crappy springs, ATF Oil and crappy Rods, as well as only provide rebound valves.........that's right boys and girls, fix the brakes up front and she dives faster than a trident submarine!


Fortunately Ohlin's has answered the call for front kit drop ins! Yeah! With Better Rods, Springs and Compression and rebound valves for superior dampening. Synthtic #20 Oil is also incorporated to make this machine a much better ride.


This is what's called "Under bones" Not quite a scooter, and not quite a motorcycle......Again, its for meandering through heavy traffic and lane splitting, which it does exceptionally well. Other than running to the store for Milk and Cookies. It's not a road bike.......unless of course your a short, light Pilipino man coming in at 55 kilos. Petit women favor this bike over men. Can you see our wife dropping off the kid at school? I see it all the time!

I have a friend that rides his Grom with no muffler at all, sounds pretty good and he says it runs the same...
