So I bought a monkey bike 😀
To be more specific, it’s a Chinese clone of the Honda Dax ST70. This one’s a 2017 Skyteam Dax 125 that I bought off eBay for about half what the original owner paid for it new last year. It had 160 miles on the clock and brand new upgraded tyres.
Other than the even sillier Skyteam Bongo 50, the Dax (so called because of its passing resemblance to the breed of dog) is possibly one of the cheapest road legal vehicles that you can buy in the UK. In many ways, it’s a colossally shit little motorbike, and yet it is so, so much fun.
The original Honda design has passed out of copyright and anyone can make them now. With a 125 engine in there, the bike is surprisingly pokey and you can feel it wanting to wheelie off the throttle in the first few gears. It doesn’t help that I’m so tall, I have to sit on the pillion seat in order to be comfortable... #inappropriatemotorcycle#shitlittlebike#skyteam#skyteamdax#dax#monkeybike#minibike#bikerbabe#rideordie#rideordiechick#bikerwomen#motobabe#motogirl#motowomen#womenwhoride#bikerlife#bikersofinstagram#bikerstyle
