Between local civil unrest, the pending 12/12/2012 extinction and the Zombie Apocalypse, a fleet of these might be the ticket:

When I see someone doing a wheelie, I can't help imagining what would happen if the rear tire blew out. Ugh! Hair, teeth and strawberry ice cream all over the pavement.

The Keyway was designed by Benelli. They are the best new imports I've seen in the DR. They have two 200cc models worth taking a peek at.

Bonanza Dominicana is the importer. They have several on their Kennedy showroom in StoDgo. I also saw two at their Santiago location on 27 Febrero in Santiago...

I have (for the last 4 years or so)a Yamaha XT600, 2004 I think it's the perfect bike for the island, big, torquey, SIMPLE motor, easy to work on, pulls wheelies in 3rd (only 5 speed box) Cheap to run and insure (RD$1,000 per year) comfy and best of all, it's a proper Yamaha, built in Japan, not Chinese. i have had several Chinese bikes, never again, pay the extra and get a properly built bike. would I sell it? Probablynot, but of anyone offers me over $4,500 i might consider parting with it......

It looks like 2 of my friends will be buying CobraBoy's Used VStroms or the new Keyways... Me.. I would have to sell my 1700's Pirate hook to be able to afford one...LOL

You know, I had many bikes, mainly motocross bikes (even the mythic 490 YZ, 4 gears, which was a monster) and enduro like XR 600 or XT 600. But my dream is to get a Harley.
As I live in Sosua, I often pass by the Harley garage and take a look inside. Every day, I think ok just go and fullfil your dream dude, you only live once. And then, I think, it will be dangerous and unpractical. And quite expensive. So I'll probably end up buying a 125 or 200
