Monkey by my side....

Postby Bendog02760 » Thu Apr 12, 2018 5:22 pm

So the real riding season is coming soon to Massachusetts and it’s time to get my HD’s ready. I’ve ridden my GU however all winter long and my monkey has been with me every moment, 6000 + km in year one of ownership. Anybody else have a full time 4 legged partner keeping them company?

Wouldn’t want to do a load test with those two mastiffs and yourself, might be challenging the weight limit!!

Well...I wish I could ride as often as I'd like but at least I usually have a Monkey....of some sort.
They come in all

Awww, man. You started another 'dog thread'....

Fortunately, I don't feel there can be too many pictures of Heinrich von Barkenstein stored on the Soviet Steeds server. :wink:

Have faith Tom, hope they don’t need to salt again!!! Every bike I ever rode has been enjoyable but the fun factor is multiplied when I’m with my monkey!! I won’t say it’s the only reason I bought the GU but definitely the biggest....

Definitely seems like spring has sprung here. Thirty minute ride to a state forest and several hours of hiking and watching my maniac enjoy every water hole she could find....
