I briefly considered buying a Grom, even though I've never been on a bike in my life (except riding my friend's dirtbike when I was in middle school, which I instantly crashed). My work commute is ~20 minutes on secondary roads with speed limits under 45mph, but I'd probably end up badly hurting myself.
You know your limitations a lot better than I do and if you feel like being on a bike is a bad idea that's exactly what it is!
Having said that if you can ride a bicycle and it's something you enjoy plus if you start small @ 250cc or less for your first motorcycle (and get lessons!) you could learn pretty quickly.
