It is nice to see motorcycle couples in their matching outfits:

I would say that is a pejorative, but it is true. I don't know about elsewhere, but in the east here the side car folks have tried hard to change the use from "monkey" to "passenger' or even "swinger."

I hope you noticed that the inside of the windscreen was upholstered. That shows real commitment to the decor.

I certainly didn't intend to be offensive or have my remark be in anyway construed as derogatory. If I have caused anyone offense I do apologize.

Over here, on the east side of the Atlantic (the UK) where I used to passenger in a sidecar outfit I certainly would not have minded being referred to as a 'Monkey' and personally I still use the term for racing sidecar passengers. I do not imagine that there are many Vincent owners who are delicate little petals who would be offended by being referred to as 'monkeys'. I also occasionally use it as a term of endearment to some of my lady friends and they seldom beat me about the head for using the term. Relax!!

The term 'swinger' has connotations of its own....
