    hello bis from france

    After going through the presentations, here I am on Monkey thread

    I’m 61. Retired and living in the east of France (Alsace) near german border.
    45 years riding. many bikes in the past.I started at age 13 on a 50cc gitaneTesti and have had just about every kind of bike from most every major manufacturer. I Have had 59 motorcycles during this time. I put a deposit on the Yellow Monkey last mouth. Should see around beginning of july. I had to sell my bikes for health reasons but I could not imagine the garage without 2 wheels in it !. Thank you for your welcome.



    this model is waiting for delivery. mine will arrive in early July.

    oooh... yellow.
    That is the most popular highly sought after color in the US and is well worth your wait to get one.

    it is true that the yellow is really nice. unfortunately, it takes a long time to get one. this one on the picture is waiting for his owner who ordered it in february. I have to wait 3 months for mine to be at my seller's.

    That's okay. Once you have it, the waiting won't matter.

    I know all you US guys love the Euro-spec taillight and turn signals. I may be the only one that likes the big yellow US turn signals, I have probably never had a bike without them. Nostalgia.

    Agreed. Clear, Euro style lights in the US are so late 90's/early 2000's. They look outdated to me.

    and I must be the only French to prefer the American style.

    Besides I will inquire to see if it is possible to change the equipment. I read on the forum a "post" that speaks of these transformations. now, we must see if it is compatible (electrical beam, led ... etc) ...


    while I think about it: if you ever want accessories, tools or other specific European materials, I can help you in searches, and even shipments if ever the shipping costs were too important on the sites of sale.
    PS; sorry for my bad English

    my wife is furious.
    I cleaned the garage so that the Monkey finds its place next to his girlfriends. I told him that there was still enough space for another motorcycle
