Hey Greg - I completely agree. Even after only 1 week in La Romana (D.R.) I was briefly fooled into thinking that it was summer again. It felt incredibly strange to put long pants on again at the Thunder Bay airport on arrival yesterday. I must admit - I like the contrast though. It's strangely enjoyable to be sitting under the hot sun one moment and then seeing all this snow again. In one week it'll be March - and hopefully more sunny weather.

Lots of Suzuki AX100, Honda CG125, and Honda Lead 100 scooters. Also lots of Loncin branded bikes.

Might be a Honda. The 250 Falcon we see in Chile are cool, I really liked the Suzuki 100cc two strokes we saw in Ecuador . Some had chrome tuner pipes on them. Pretty sweet sounding as they ripped past

It's too bad we don't get the cool little bikes in Canada. Some really interesting rides out there. I did see a new Suzuki on Kijiji, might have been a 200 or 250, loo kings like a retro late 60's bike!

With some regret I may be deleting the tapatalk app from my main computer which is my 8G iPod .
I really like the ease of use, and simple posting of pics, but the things just continues to grow, & grow. When I first installed it was a small little seed, now it's almost half my usable memory. I deleted a whole pile of my pics, and I really should have deleted the app instead. Who knew it would grow so large.....

Suzuki did it right with the TU250. Too bad it's overpriced in Canada. I'd love to ride one. A couple of years ago - a friend was seriously considering buying one - but opted for a larger bike instead.
