    Default Crossing the Border to Haiti on a Motorcycle?

    Hi,
    I wanted to ask if it's possible to cross the border to Haiti on your own motorcycle. I already read that it's not easy to cross the border with a rental car, but what's about your own motorcycle?
    Thank you very much!

    Why do you think there would be a difference?

    Of course you can. No different than a car. Assume you speak good creole. The question is why go to such a place? If you want to see poverty we have enough right here. A bit more dangerous on a moto, especially if you appear to be a gringo or tourist. I would wear a helmet, full face shield, gloves and jacket. That way you are disguised a bit. Pay up your insurance first and good luck if we do not hear from you again. Not being pessimistic, just realistic. Its a very very dangerous place.

    I doubt the insurance is good over the border. As zoom says there is nothing at the border to interest even the most infantile brain. Very dirty and depressed areas around the border.

    I once tried to enter Haiti, at the Diabon border, with our own personal car. we were not allowed entry with the vehicle. They said we needed a special permit to be obtained in Santo Domingo.
    This was about 2 years ago. I don't know if anything has changed or if motorcycles are different.

    Withour checking, I suspect you are right, Insurance and plates and bribes would have to be in order.
