    Default Motorcycle Foot Thing

    Can anyone explain the purpose of two motorcycles riding with one slightly behind the other and the back guy's foot touching the rear pegs of the one in front? Is it like holding hands?

    That's called a Dominican Tow Truck.

    One bike is inop and being pushed.

    Cobraboy, I always respect your posts as they are ROT (1960's right on time = correct) BUT in this instance with due respect I think that you are wrong. What I have seen cannot possibly be pushing.

    No question about.... the rear moto is pushing the front one..... clearly

    If it looks too easy for your liking.... you missed the kick=off.

    Once they're rolling.... piece o'cake.... until the uphill part :-))

    No, Cobraboy is right on...that is the Dominican way of one motconchista helping out another motoconchista. Or a friend helping out a friend.

    What? You want that they should WALK the bike to a station??? No way!

    It is as Cobra says, my gas gauge was screwed and I often had to get pushed to the station by a passing motoconcho. It's not that difficult, just keep your leg locked or your likely to lose a few toes.

    I agree with Cobraboy. Have seen it around many many times. I also had to use the services of the Dominican Tow Truck couple of times usually when the electric part screwed up, so indeed Cobraboy is right.

    My gas gauge isscrewed so I carry a 20oz of gasoline at all times in the passola trunk. I have also got quite good at mental math (with all those gas changing prices) and unconscious odometer reading. Have not had to use the bottle for a long time ... I think half of the gasoline it contained has already evaporated by now
