I'd say sign me up, but I think the hurricanes have left them with some bigger issues right now than attracting tourists.If Cuba wants to hit a homerun for tourism, a mid winter week long vacation on the 400 mile long island that includes riding a vintage cruiser bike from one end to the other, would be the ideal cure for all of us up here in snow up to our knees in the middle of January!
Hello YammyV. I know that area well. I drive about 150 km north of Dolbeau-Mistassini to go moose hunting in the fall and trout fishing during the summer. We are 9 moose hunters and we limit our bag to 3 moose every year. It's just north of the 50th parallel. Lots of black bear up there too. The Mistassibi river is just below me when I am sitting in my tiny hunting camp.Welcome to our forum, Dabluz. Lots of us are in the same boots! That is snow and cold weather while our rides take a rest for the winter months. Couldn't help to say 'hello' to you. Am familiar with your countryside there. For 10 years made a few trips to Dolbeau-Mistassini as a van/canoe trailer driver for a girls' wilderness camp who experienced the rivers further north about 125 k. My job was meeting them at their pickup on those dusty logging roads along the river. Beautiful sights! Would love to see pictures of your 650 too. Happy Holiday! YammyV
20,000km? That's just barely broke in. My 1300 has just short of 50,000 miles (80,000 km) on it and runs strong and long with no problems.Wow.....thanks for the responses in such a short time. Yes, there will be photos of my new bike. I only paid 1400 dollars Canadian for it. Came with windshield and leather bags. Right now, the bike is partly in a snow bank but I found a place where I can store it and work on it. An almost 20 year old bike with less than 20,000 kilometers surely needs some TLC. I haven't done any riding in over 10 years and I want to get a few years of riding before getting too old. I did most of my riding in the years when a 650 cc machine was considered big. During those years, I saw one Harley and it was very old. Honda came out with a 750 cc a few years later. We only wore helmets when doing long distance riding. There were more 2 cycle motors than 4 cycle motors in my region in the late 60's and early 70's. It's -25 celsius today and the snow is deep. No hope of riding till late April or early May.
I may upgrade to a 1100 cc in a year or two because the 1100 cc engine has such a great reputation. However, the 650 is based on the 535 cc engine which also has a great reputation.20,000km?
