    You cannot do your motorcycle license test on a CanAm in MA

    Did you know you can use a fully automatic scooter to go through the msf class? That'll really get your panties in a pretzel.

    Personally for new riders I don't think the grom type bikes are a bad way to learn. Allows the basic techniques to be learned and practiced utilizing a tool that minimizes stress. I believe they have the power to potentially accelerate the learning process for persons who are smaller and would otherwise have difficulty with a 250. Kind of like a strider bike.
    I was referring to MA, sorry.

    My problem is not the power of the grom, but the wheel size. Training Wheels has 125cc bikes with 17' wheels.

    I don't think it's an issue either way.

    For you or I, no. For a brand new rider, absolutely. It's like trying to teach them how to ride a scooter so they can take an 800lb Harley out.

    I've seen students excel on these little bikes. If they were on a heavier 250 I believe they would have struggled more with the weight of the bike instead of being able to concentrate on the basics.

    I equate this to a child learning on a strider bike before going to a bicycle. It allows them to concentrate on less at once to accelerate the pace of learning.

    Re: Pinned - Grom Love

    anyone tried the grom clones?

    $1,300 brand new LOL

    now that I'm street bike-less, I am contemplating a random interim bike to ride a year and trash/sell. Seems like grom/clone ownership would give a good full year of hooligan life.

    Look on Alibaba. I've seen clones on there for $650, but I have no idea on street legality. I'm tempted to get one just to beat up on.
