I start a new job in July. Current employer has to buy out my vacation time. Had the internal debate with myself between buying a nicer car, or buying a 'new' bike. Decided I need to be honest with myself, and acknowledge that I will not commute to work, and thus the only logical choice is a bike that I can race on kart tracks, but also take out for a couple of hours on the weekends I'm not racing. Grom or Z125 Pro are the primary obvious choices. What other bikes should I be considering (including the Chinese Grom copies)? Also curious about how the groms crash. I know that's inevitable, and I just want to be prepared for how many street parts I'll need to remove. I'm thinking I can wire the entire rear fender assembly to a trailer wiring harness, and make the whole thing 1 plug and 2 bolts to remove turn signals and license plate. 125cc bikes are just the most convenient option. I am not entirely opposed to making a street-legal XR100, or even something as large as a WR250x ...but the Grom seems like the simplest option, and relatively low-cost. I do not trust myself to invest the time into getting the XR/CRF street-legal, nor am I confident I can find a clean one, with a title, for a low enough price that makes the street conversion remain less than a used Grom/Z125 when all is said and done. What sayeth the beeb?
