The few places that have them seem to want several hundred in fees on top of msrp. Luckily I found one without all the freight / setup extra fees.
    Congratulations. I'm glad we could be a positive influence on your life.

    I'm coming up on 40 next month. The Z50 was the first motorcycle I ever rode when I was a kid and when the new Monkey prototype came out I just new I had to have one. In my 20's I owned and recreationally raced two Honda CRR600F4 and CBR600F4i's in the WERA series on the east coast and then I was out of the motorcycle game from 2002 until 2012 or so and I started riding some dirt trails with a Husqvarna WR125. In 2013 I got the itch again and bought a Triumph Street Triple R to do track days with, then when my kids turned 4 I bought them a few of those electric razer dirt/gp bikes which they picked up so fast so we went the whole CRF50/CRF70/KLX110/ route with me buying a CRF230 and a CRF250X to ride with them on. Needless to say my wife and kids bought me a Monkey in banana yellow for my 40th that I picked up last weekend with my daughter, and it is by far the most fun motorcycle I've owned over the years.

    54 and living in the Florida keys on a sailboat. PERFECT bike for here. I have spent $3k on top of the $3600, yes, that’s right, $3600 for the bike. There was a misunderstanding and my dealer really made it right. I have about 300 miles on her. Ohlins are fantastic, I can take big speed bumps at 45 mph, no prob. Chimera intake, kits I clutch cover, Koso clutch, 5 row oil cooler, 16/32 sprockets, takegawa oil pump, anodizing pipe. Yellow bike. Loving life!!

    Cool, I’m about to take her across 7 mile, first time since the upgrades. Lots of tourists but not too windy. US1 is perfect for the Monkey. I’m always in race mode. I top out at 5 mph over the speed everyone is running. She’s an excellent bar hopper. I get away with a lot, like the groms. Donuts, burnouts with flying gravel, wheelies, parking on the sidewalk... everyone just laughs.

    I am 50, and have owned 7 motorcyles before this Monkey. Everything from HD Road Kings, Street glides, Honda Shadows etc, and this may be the most fun bike yet! Just a pure form of fun like the reason I started to ride years ago!
