Last week I was at the Kingston terminal waiting to board when the west bound ferry began unloading.  It was prime commute time so there was a great mix of bikes coming off.  DP's, ADV's, ST's, the usual couple of Harleys, and even a new Can-Am Spyder.  But right in the middle of all of them was a young woman, her blond hair streaming out from under her helmet, bombing along on her Grom.  This filled me with such joy, I still grin when I think of it.

 Lol A friend of ours had one which we used as a pit bike - it was more fun than the race car... almost.

Isn't it funny how the littlest packages  can give you the biggest pleasure.

Racer buddy of mine has one. Apparently they will high-side you. Another couple of friends have Z125s -- apparently they are considering running them up there Crest for time...

If there was a well organized Grom style racing league around me using go kart tracks (similar to well established leagues in CA), I'd be all over  that!!!!


here's one in Canada

They are popular here. At one of our bike nites last summer, more Groms ended up showing up than big bikes.

It's not the fall that hurts, it's when you hit the ground.
