Star 2016 Raffle Bikes
« on: August 02, 2016, 01:22:26 PM »
I've seen a lot of traffic on the forums of the winner of the BMW at Star 2016
Rich was very excited to win the bike as we all know by now.

I was at Star and with all the excitement over Rich winning the BMW I don't remember who won the other prizes.

Would be good to hear from the winner about his/her experience with the GROM.

In fact who did win the GROM?

I forget the name of the Grom winner, somebody from Florida just read it in the FL Newsletter that recapped STAR. Somebody on the EC likely has a list of all prize winners.

Not sure why you would do that. Have you ridden one of these small bikes? The physical size isn't as small as you might think and they are fun to ride. I ride my z125 more often than my v-strom.

I read a review of the Z125 today in Motorcyclist magazine, and they were VERY complimentary of it. I can understand why you would like it.
I recently purchased a 1975 Yamaha RD125. It's a 2-smoke, er stroke, and it'll run nicely up to about 55mph. But to go anything over that, you pretty much have to have a nice downhill grade. The article I mentioned said the Z125 would hit 62. I've seen 62 once on the RD125, but only once and it was on a good down grade. Of course there's the issue of 40 years of technology, but the "Z" sounds like a winner.

I would love to have a Grom!!  They even have a class for them in the Central Motorcycle Racing Association ... it's a HOOT!!  Probably one of the most popular classes and the grid just keeps getting bigger and bigger.  It's very, very competitive.
The shortest distance between point A and point B is boring.
