Drive Thru On The Grom

So, during the work week, I drive thru a lot. I’ve been going over different options to carry my food back home. My backpack would probably squash my food. I saw some cargo nets online so I picked one up at Walmart. A Coleman MadDog for $4. I think it might work. 

Week 1: My Grom and I

Last Friday we drove up to Georgetown to pick up a 2017 Bright Yellow Grom, and I have been loving it. I started off riding around the neighborhood to make sure I still remembered how to drive a motorcycle. It took a couple attempts, and a few embarrasing moments at the stop sign, but I finally got my groove. I am no longer fearful of stop signs and red lights!

I didn’t want to spend any more money so I went on the hunt for a used Helmet at the pawnshops. I visited about 5 pawn shops and found one for $59! It fits really well, and did not seem to be that used. Gave it a good once over with some cleaning products and hit the road with it. I am already looking at purchasing a brand new helmet from the same brand later on. Vega. 

Because of the holiday, it was a short work week. I was only able to take the Grom to work two days of the three we worked because of Rain. On Friday, I only took the Grom after lunch. My General Manager even gave me permission to park the Grom right on the curb so that it can get some shade. That was a huge relief as I wasn’t sure where to park the Grom. 

Now I just need Grom Friends!

Missing my Moto X

The first gen Moto X was the best non-nexus phone I ever owned. Not only was it practically Pure Android, it had some great hands free features. Now that I riding around in the Grom, I bought a Moto Hint to send me notifications to my ear. BUT, since it was an impulse buy at a pawn shop I didn’t do my research. Turns out all the cool hands free stuff for the Hint is for Moto X phones, and probably other Moto phones. I am currently looking for homebrew bluetooth apps to get the same experience as the Moto X with the Moto Hint. For now, it’s just a simple bluetooth earpiece. It does send my Audiobooks to my ear though. That’s cool.
