At least it is a Honda

They call it a Monkey, never saw one, not even on this video.

but it sounds like a nice trail bike.

I rode a 1949 Indian on roads like that back in the day.

He isn't doing anything special....!!

The video title says ďLike a champĒ....hardly. He rides it more like an amateur.

He didnít seem to get it in the air, he didnít drift the corners, he never even got the front wheel up.

Granted it looks like a fun little trail bike, if you can fold your legs up like that. My knees are too decrepit for that.

I bought a couple of enduros back in 1971,
a Yamaha DT250 and CT175

rode those things in some very serious places, and over trails like that, the front tire would be in the air half the time.

those things taught me a lot that still comes in valuable once in a while on the Goldwing.

Since it is a mini bike with pretty small tires I say he's doing a pretty good job.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I saw a few at the vintage motorcycle event at Mid Ohio race course. A 125cc that looks like the old Honda mini trail 50. Talked to a guy on one and he loved it.The bike is street legal. Neat little bike.
