Just recently, I started considering a basic commuter bike. My daily driver for the last 10+ years has been a scooter of some type (Aprilia, Vespa). They are awesome for around town, but my job is building a new office that is up the road a little more and it requires a jaunt on the 55mph highway. My 50cc scooters won't cut it anymore and I'd rather not drive my big truck if I can help it. It's still a year out or so, but I want to get a grasp on what's out there.

I've looked at the Grom before and thought it was a neat idea, but the general consensus I've seen (not just on here) is the same. At the end of the day, that little bike will get old.

What other ideas does anyone have for a good basic commuter bike? Triumph Bonneville?
