It was perfect at around 7pm for a ride on The Monkey.

I rode through Shepton Mallet and past The Bath and West showground to Bruton.
I went on to Redlynch, Kilmington, Mere, Maiden Bradley before heading home.

Thank you downer.

Two years together and 5500 miles for a little 125cc is pretty good going I think.

I would imagine your mileage is above average for the Monkey - just as it should be. I am always surprised how many bikes there are for sale at 2 or 3 years old with tiny mileages. Lots of big touring bikes that have hardly been used… must be costing their owners a fortune on a depreciation per mile basis.

Totally agree.

On a Monkey Forum I belong to owners have thrown £000s on their Monkeys only to sell them with a few hundred miles on the clock a couple of months later.

My mileage history since 2008 has been:

Vespa GTV125 4/2008 - 7/2012 11087 miles

Vespa GTS125 SS 7/2012 - 8/2015 9810 miles

Honda Forza 125 8/2015 - 4/19 7123 miles

Honda Monkey 125 4/19 - 6/21 5529 miles.

I appreciate that you have covered a larger mileage in a much shorter time on your bigger bikes.

Went for a ride and was thoroughly enjoying myself and then…..I fell off at about 10miles in. Couldn’t face the hilly ride back so cycled a different way but it was 12 very sore & slow miles. The pics stopped after I fell. My heart wasn’t in it.

Hope you're back in the saddle again soon Steve. The roads around Standish/Haresfield are lousy with potholes.

Thanks Rich.

I fell on the A38, right outside the Whitminster Inn. Was just about to cross the carriageway and cut down to Saul, when I hit some gravel and just went down. Got a very sore lump just below the knee.
