docc Posted March 2, 2022 Report Share Posted March 2, 2022 Rereading the MGNOC post of Dave Richardson about the early introduction of the V11 Sport (re-posted by @ScuRoo), I see what is, perhaps, the earliest attribution to calling the tail cowl storage the "Monkey Paw Trap" . . . " . . . each U.S. bike has its tool kit stuffed into a cloth compartment under the seat hump, referred to by my parts man, Aaron, as a monkey paw trap, because it's only wide enough for an open hand. Grab something in the pouch and you can't get your hand back out!" The V11 has some other unique colloquialism references. Care to contribute? PORK CHOP MAN! ME TALKIN' TO YOU!
