I did exactly 215 miles. Home sweet home! Yeah it was cold but the hard part was the head wind. Holly cow! It really slowed me down. That and hills. My speed was all over the place. I saw as much as 63 mph and as low as 40 mph. I actually dropped back to 3rd gear on some hills. The Monkey will pull easily past 45 mph in 3rd gear. The forks are very soft compared to the GROM. It's okay with me though. The roads are really bad in Houston and I thought the Monkey did pretty good in and around potholes. The OEM tires have a lot of grip. That was a nice surprise. The seat has got to be the most comfortable seat other than the one on the Gold Wing. The Monkey is VERY comfortable. I slightly rotated the handlebar forward and the riding position is now perfect for me. It's better than the riding position on the GROM because the handlebar is taller. I have been thinking about add ons and I think the only thing I want to add at this point is the OEM rack. I think I will leave the bike 100% stock. The Monkey is a blast!
