Damp Chamois

Mate

I have learned from experience that downing my normal pint(s) is not a good idea when you have to relieve yourself whilst wearing cycling shorts.

In England's Green and Pleasant Land

I did a 44 miler today down through the Wylye Valley to Great Wishford and travelled through some beautiful thatched cottage villages. I had to stop at Stockton on the way home for a packet of crisps (first packet this year) and a half of Thatchers cider. https://www.strava.com/activities/2301840497...

Re: The Monkey

That's exactly the case with the Monkey Lavaine. The Monkey shares much of the Grom technology, probably appealing more to the older generation because of the look. Two great fun bikes. I can honestly say that I am enjoying riding the Monkey more than any scooter I have owned. All the neighbours hav...

The Honda Super Cub has foot gears but no clutch so guess that's similar.

Re: The Monkey

Neil For sure. Although the seat on the Monkey is like a marshmallow. Kiter Don't rub it in. Don't forget the clutch is where my back brake has always been and my left foot just sat on the running board. I only discovered the back brake my accident today. downer I'm not even sure what 'one of these'...

Re: The Monkey

Thank you both. It'll come I know. I do wish that it had a gear number indicator, that would help. Luckily there is no reverse gear to tap into. I've also had to leave out my Ultimate ear plugs so that I can listen to the sound of the engine revs as there is no rev counter. It's OK though, I'll be f...

Re: The Monkey

Thanks chaps. I had it delivered from Fowlers in Bristol and they collected the Forza at the same time. Having fitted the flyscreen I ventured out on a 6 mile local ride. Bearing in mind that I have never ridden a foot geared bike I had some real problems getting my mind to throttle back, pull in th...

Looks like I'm in for a bit of fun.
