    Royal Mail need to issue free eye tests first. Yesterday, our humble home received a card for ward 17 at the Princess Royal Hospital! IDIOTS.

    I have the same engine in my 2019 Monkey, its a peach for a 125. Four speed so leisurely progress, but a genuine 170 to 190 mpg. Build quality is really nice ,and cable routing clips mudguards and tank etc are all metal.

    I completely agree. One of those tours on what you'd think would be a completely inappropriate bike, but one which would probably surprise you every day.

    To wade a river in flood, you'd just lob it onto the back of a friendly flat bed truck. Or into a local dug-out canoe. Try that with a GSA...

    And with a jerry can on the back, the range would be extraordinary. It would slow you down to a pace at which you'd smell more roses and meet more locals, too.

    I had one of the older ones, imported from the states,

    I had to rebuild the gearbox, as the lugs on second gear had broken off, the three which pin first gear , as it was first that didn’t work
    , but it was a nice little bike, I bought it to do a C2C run, in preference to the common at the time C90, in reality though the C90 was just as good.

    I think I'd like one of them as a run around for the summer!

    The original iteration had an auxiliary fuel tank as an optional extra; it was circular and clamped to the rear frame, held a couple of litres I seem to recall.
