Toronto Rocks!!!

Another very important conference to attend in Toronto, another remarkable success.  It's really nice to be on a roll.  Here's hoping my luck holds until October 26, 2011.  I'll spare you the details because it has nothing to do with my blog, and I apologize for being cryptic.

If I've piqued your curiosity, and you just can't help yourself, you will soon be able to see what it's all about at, but I warn you, if the words "shareholder democracy" don't really resonate with you, don't bother.  If they do, maybe we should talk.

So what do I have to share with you?

More of the same: a glimpse of life on two wheels in Canada's financial capital.

First, here are Toronto's BIXIs at the corner of Bay street.
Then, have a look at this collection of Vespas parked on the sidewalk just east of Bay street on Wellington (there's nothing wrong with your speakers, I deleted the audio track which was just annoying street noise).
I know, I know, that last one's not a Vespa.  Still, six scooters and five of them Vespas on a single block, wow!

And then this trio down on Queen's Quay on the waterfront (although the one that looks like a PX may actually be a Stella).
Way to go Toronto!


  1. David:

    many years ago I used to work at the corner of King & Bay across from the TD Tower. I wished I knew about scooters back then. I took the subway from Islington to Yonge then transfer down to King. Glad to see more people use scooters on a daily basis. Scooters and bikes make more sense in congested TO traffic

  2. Bob: my son now lives in Toronto. While the generous free parking offered to powered two-wheelers in Toronto is a huge plus, the absence of good bike paths and the presence of streetcar tracks all over the city, make Toronto less two-wheeler friendly than it might otherwise be.

  3. Nice catch! Toronto looks like scooter paradise to me. Here in Vancouver they would probably fine all the illegally parked motorized two-wheelers.
