    Urban Mini

    Forum Sponsor
    Hey everyone, here's my new user intro. The moment I was scraping the pegs of a Honda Grom on my M1X course, I knew I had to have one. For the last month, I've been ripping around the city and commuting to work on a new Kawasaki Z125 and loving every WOT minute of it. I know there's probably a Monster or Shiver in my distant future, but I never imagined I'd have so much fun going so slow. I've even driven it out to GP a whole 40 km on the 401 of WOT bouncing off the rev limiter, just to top out at 106.

    Anyway, great to find this forum. Hoping for many more riding days left this season.

    So much win. Recently picked up a GROM myself, new levels of fun have been reached.

    14' GROM - Stretched & slammed beast
    17' FZ09 - Totaled by a left turner
    15' R3 - Sold but missed.

    Thanks all. Whoa, your Grom looks awesome. What is that, like 6 inches of stretch?

    That looks fantastic! Would you get a second bigger bike next season or stick with the grom?

    I've ridden a green meanie in a parking lot. How good is it at highway speeds?
    Ignorance is curable, Apathy not so much, but I don't care, I'll try anyway.

    Everyone likes to think that they may be the smartest person in the room, but sometimes that only occurs when we're alone!

    Ideally yes ill get a 2nd bigger bike just to romp on the highway with friends/take some trips. For town the Grom crushes it.

    It's not unsafe, but it isn't much fun either when you're gearing-limited to 106 (or, realistlcally, 95 up a hill in a headwind). It feels fine on DVP/Allen, but the 401 is another story.

    Re: Urban Mini

    Ive always wanted a grom for a second bike but i feared that drivers wouldn't see me beside them. Especially lowered.

    I got a crf250l instead and loving the small displacement.

    Op enjoy the ride and stay safe

    I resigned myself to the fact that they dont see you regardless of ride height...because most dont bother to look.

    They hear me long before they see me anyways.
