2020 Honda Monkey and others
Yesterday was a 175 mile ride to check out old mining sites. The Monkey conquered it all without issue.
Break out those bikes!I am so jealous!! Want to ride so bad! That looks like a great time. May have to load up and head south if the snow doesn't quit. But thanks chillis for posting the pics gives me something to dream about.
The stock suspension does ok due to the softness. Big hits have it bottoming out though.That’s awesome. Thanks for sharing.
I’m setting up the Monkey for Death Valley on March 19-21 and plan to do a 200 mile loop on Saturday starting at stovepipe wells - Titus Canyon to Tea Kettle jn to Racktrack to Hunter Mountain back to Stovepipe wells hotel.
Any tips on the tires and suspension setup ? Can the stock do it just fine ? I Was planning to install knobbies but do you think the stock tires can make it if it stays dry? I put a smaller front 14T sprocket and like the extra pep low end.
Would be nice if any Monkey riders want to join me on Sat March 20, 2021. I’ll be with about 5-6 friends riding bigger 800-1200cc bikes so playing with them on the Monkey should be fun.

If your stock tires have plenty of tread I would not worry about switching to knobbies.Excellent info. Thanks a lot. I was going to order the Mobber or Kendra Big blocks for DV as they seem to be ok on pavement too. The plan is to trailer monkey and do more off road than I ever did on the big 1200 bikes.
