His and Hers Honda Groms

The Honda Grom has probably put more smiles on people’s faces that any other motorcycle product in years. And it is easy to see why. This little pocket-rocket may only displace 125cc, but it’s fun factor is off the charts. It is a blast to drive. You get all the excitement and freedom of a motorcycle but it is so friendly and approachable, there is zero intimidation. You can run it on packet change and park it just about anywhere. These two Groms can liven up an empty nester household or give some zip to a vacation home. Great for lots of fun. Come drive them away or Two Men and a Truck will deliver to your door.
