    Bhal dee (good day) from the Boont regon. Great pic, what country were you in when you took that pic? An interesting bike, I like the mix of what looks to be well designed for multi-road use & that bullet proof Honda trail type engine, so copied & in use still all over the world. Is/was it your bike? m.

    Ditto. Enquiring minds want to know where the pic was taken.



    How do you say "ditto" in Boont. Always wunnerd.



    Ok, not always. But I do right now.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    "Ditto?" I know about 10 or more words for a disagreement, but you got me on that one!



    I tried harpen with a codgy on the bucky for the answer, but he's so deef I'll have to ring back later & harp to his eeld'm, she can help since he's too squeeky to buy batteries for his hearing mosh. I'll get back on this later. m.

    OK liz. So, as per boontling, it would seem that it was used much more for covert conversation than for everyday speech, and I'm sure there might have been a word for “Ditto” or to agree, but it was probably so seldom used that it's hard to find a harper who's still alive who knows it. As close as I can come, from a very well versed codgy is the word “Yibe” which is a contraction of the phrase “You bet!”

    So someone in agreement (ditto) would most likely say “Yibe to that!” which is definitely close enough to ditto for us boonters!



    So I'm going to put together a small primmer on boont harpens that I will post in the off topic section. You have to read it, as that way you will hear the fantastic events I encountered to answer your question. m.

    Suzuki Raider 110. Appears to be a Phillipine market bike.



    So I've used my finely honed deductive logic and determined that the pic was taken in Antarctica.
