/\ This. It's a reputable CU, probably worth a phone call. You may be able to pay it off and have the title issued/released directly to you. I've done that before. If it's a good enough deal, I don't mind sitting on it for a week. Just write out a through bill of sale, photocopy DL's and such.

Yeah...maybe I'll look into it more. It seems like a good deal overall...would save me ~$1k vs. buying new.

See if you can use it to your advantage to try and beat him up on the price some more. A lot of people are scared to go through the extra steps and/or think it's a scam, so he may be sitting on it a while until he finds someone else willing to deal. If it was under $2,000 I'd be asking for his number

Let me know when your next cruise is after I get my Grom. See how many chicks think my Grom will be cooler than your Harley!

If I wasn't way too big for a Grom I'd ride the fuck out of one. Frank is about as big as you can possibly be and be able to ride one.

I'm 6'2 and 300lbs (on my way down!), I had no issues riding my buddy's around town. Yeah...I probably look like a fool...but with a hot wife and 4 kids I couldn't give a flying fuck what people think about the way I look.

I did have to look up the weight limit on a Grom...and thankfully it is rated for 340lbs!

If you're into 5 yr old girls I think you got this! lol

Honestly, I see no purpose for these things other than fucking around in the neighborhood with your buds after tipping a few back. Close to 3k for a novelty? Fuck no!

Ryan, check out the big wheel trikes. For less than a Grom you could have some real fun!

LOL!!!!

A few of my buddy's in the neighborhood either have one, or are getting one. I work 2 miles from my house, and I go to the gym 2 miles from my house. I hang out at either people's houses in the neighborhood, or in "downtown" Mt Prospect 90% of the time when I go out.

It seems perfect for putting around town when I barely every drive more than 2 miles.

It is expensive for a novelty...my wife thinks its stupid.

I follow a couple of those big wheel trike builders on Facebook and they have sales fairly often. $1500-2k

Seriously for 3k you could probably find a fairly decent used big boy bike that you wouldn't look like a retard on.

I think everyone misses the point of a grom... Yes, you could get a big boy bike for damn near the same money. $3,000 goes a long way in the slightly used metric bike world. However, people buying a grom are buying it because of what it is. You know good and goddamn well what you're getting yourself into.

I think I'm the only one missing the point of the Grom here...lol

It's a $3k novelty. Like I said, fun for doing stoopid shit in your neighborhood with your buds. If looking for something for your 2 mile commute to work why not get a bicycle? Lol

I rode the shit out of mine all over the place. It did 55 comfortably bone stock and got there quickly. It was sufficient for any roads minus highways. I routinely rode 10-15 mile one way commutes with it.
