Any recommendations for taking off the sticky residue left over from the decals off the plastic fairings? I tried goo gone but it leaves a cloudy haze over black fairings

Try rubbing it gently using a rubbing compound. The turtle wax company makes one that i've used in the past.

That sucks, one part of the selling process I hated. Lots of time spent showing and so many flakes

Yup, I was with my Girl doubling on the Grom, we had a scooter buddy move in from Kelowna. So it was his inaugural Welcome cruise. Started in High Gate area, queenborough, river road, Steveston then ended in Iona. Great day for a ride yesterday... Grom kept up no problem with 2 up.

My buddy's poor car got smoked by a biker this morning at work.
This was on Shell just north of Bridgeport.

*update: biker ok, gear melted off, but ok.

Alright amateur sleuths...what kind of bike do you think it was/is?
My first guess was KTM cause of the orange fender.

I put my speculation on what happened in the GTI thread. Summary: lost control and slid out.

I'm thinking of getting a Grom now that I'm in Kelowna. I'm not going to tour out of town for another 10-15 years when my kids grow up, just commute to work and explore the local twisty 60km/h roads. Also pack it on the back of the minivan for road trips like I saw on the Vancouver Grom group.

Not for another two years when we buy a house. Which sucks because Kelowna Honda has a brand new 2014 Grom for $3300 with just tax on top. So tempting. But I'll probably head to Honda Centre in Burnaby when the time comes for a similar deal.

qhey - that looks like a really hot deal, honestly. Especially considering the bike has brand new tires. I would look for scratches and nicks on the engine covers and on the bar-ends ... it's usually an indication that the bike has been down. Fairings are easily painted but folks rarely address engine covers.

Otherwise I personally think $5,500 is a pretty hot deal for that bike.
