None of the forum categories seem to fit, but Road... seems like the least bad fit.

At 71, I'm feeling long in the tooth for welcoming a new baby to the house, but here she is:



My wife started to learn to ride with a vintage Honda CB125 (kick start only; I told her that kick start was good for learning clutch/throttle control), then a 1989 Honda VTR250, and a 2001 Kawasaki Ninja 250 both of which were really too big for her to handle with confidence. Enter the Grom.

I hope she is able to bond with it; if not, I may have a baby hooligan bike to play with.

Those look pretty fun. Some guy in the neighborhood has a bright green one. For a small bike the ergonomics seem pretty good.

Groms are awesome. I have several friends with them and they're a hoot to ride.

Hi Selden,

these things are selling like hot cakes in the UK, bought in equal amounts by the young lunatics, as well as the daft old buggers!

They look like great fun.

Enjoy
