I think the Super Cub has more practicality for my pursuits.....

A couple weeks ago I was riding in the Lake Berryessa area. Saw a group of riders and did not pay attention to their rides. Later I saw them passing Pope Valley Market - heading up to Angwin. They were a group of six riding Grom's and they were hauling booty. Looked like fun. Since then the Monkey and Super Cub were re-released. Gotta wonder what Honda has in store for the remainder of the 2019 models.

They race Groms and some of the older mini-bikes like the Monkey on one of the indoor go-kart tracks near here. Short tight course so they don't get much speed up and it looks fun as heck.

This is the area I know they rode  https://goo.gl/maps/V5peKj1LVsA2 . Street View does justice but Seat View is a hoot. This area is full of beautiful tight twisty roads. This was the first time I had seen a Grom in this area but it makes sense. Wish I had better storage that would allow me to have many different types of motorcycles.
