In 1967, while I was in the Air Force, I bought a brand new Z50, with the folding handlebars, fuel tank shut of valves (2) and carried it in the trunk of my Dodge Dart GT:grin:

I was stationed at Edwards AFB, in the Mojave desert and it was fun to unload the Z50 and ride through the desert and shoot Jackrabbits :wink2:

I bought another one in 1976 for my Son's first 'bike' and he loved it.:smile:

This new one though is larger, has better brakes and a 125cc engine and is street legal:smile_big:

In 2012, I had a 125cc Yamaha Zuma scooter and rode it frequently on my 11 mile ride to work, on beautiful rural country roads @ 45 mph and always had a smile on my face, getting 100 mpg:surprise:

I test rided the new Monkey 125cc on one event we have here in Finland. It was really fun! I was smiling all the time as I rode it :grin: I had a classic Monkey model of 1992 when I was in my moped age (age 15-18) (not I'm 24 years old) so it was nostalgic to ride it again :)

(I would have inserted a link / image here but I'm not allowed to that yet since I'm new here. If you want, look me up from Instagram by @mingooda )

It's so cute... Not sure what I'd do with it but it's an adorable little bike, but not cheap!

Mike, you could carry it in the trunk of your Victory RV, just in case it broke down:grin:

The one I want to see in person is the new 125cc CUB:smile_big:

I would NOT buy it just because of the name. I hate monkeys.

Cool bike though - if you get Motortrend On Demand they just put a show up about a couple guys riding a couple Monkeys down the Baja Peninsula.

Yep, the Victory could be your Toyhauler for that little thing. It is cute. I'd have a blast running around some of my pastures with that little thing.:grin:

The funny thing was as tiny as it is it was actually comfortable to sit on, bars, controls, everything felt natural. It’s got to be a blast to ride!
