My traveling monkey

I noticed that many long distance riders take mascots along on their rides. Let me introduce you to my monkey… I don’t have a name for him yet.

I was on the lookout for a mascot since last year but nothing caught my eye, then a month ago I saw this monkey and I knew he was the one that I wanted to share my adventures with. I like monkeys, I like the word monkey and my Chinese zodiac sign is a monkey, so it fits.

I think this weekend I’m going to take my monkey for his first ride to see how he likes it. And to my surprise, I’m not the only one touring with a monkey ..he he.

Wow, so glad you have a monkey along for the ride too! We simply MUST get the monkeys together for a neet-n-greet! :)

Hey Anna, where was the monkey on the Crumpets Ride?

You know, there're some mechanics in a Formula 1 team who travelled the world with a stuffed donkey and they took funny pictures and had a website just for that...

Jay, I forgot the monkey at home on Saturday, but brought him along Sunday... I need a name for him, I can't keep refering to him as the "monkey" LOL.

Yes.. the monkeys should meet. Does your monkey have a name? I need a name for my monkey.

I'll tell you the name of my monkey... just kidding, have to keep this clean.

Anna, the monkey's really cute and it'd be awesome to velcro his butt down under the windshield, haha. You definitely need a name as you're going to be talking to him a lot on your rides... that's unless you dont have us monkeys, Rick and I, around to chat on the radios.
