3. Informal A stupid, dull person!
A “Clunk” is the sound that a trusty Honda C90 makes when you stamp it into gear. A reassuring noise, all is well. In the dictionary above it mentions the word dull three times, but there is nothing dull about riding a Clunk!
I have ridden bikes/scooters/mopeds/two-wheeled-dustbins since I was a teenager.
My favourite ride of all time is the Honda C90. SuperClunk I was taken away too soon.
It changed owners on the night of November 21st 2012, no V5 slip was exchanged, no silver crossed my palm, no hands were shook. In short, it was stolen from outside my house, gutted!
