    Default motorbikes and where to buy CABARETE SOSUA area

    Hi
    Im thinking about purchasing a brand new motor bike budget up to $40000RD or $1000us
    i was looking on supercarros and saw a few brand new 'bottom of the line' bike e.g
    Force CG 200 2013 ( this only an example) 34000rd

    questions
    can anyone recommend a great /honest dealer for a bike in this price range in cabarete / sosua?
    what is process of registration?
    how long after i purchase and register it can i take possession of it? what is the usual buying process here?
    I have a lawyer- i really would like her to handle the transfer of title- do you recommend that??
    insurance-liabiltity?? in case i hit or hurt someone... RECOMMENDATIONS costs. I only want third party and if i hurt someone. i do not need insurance to replace the value of my bike

    thanks

    These Chinese bikes are crap though, you get what you pay for. Pay double and get a Yamaha, if it is going to be your main transportation. I just got mine for sh!ts & giggles.
    The current series Chinese bikes are vast improvemeents over those of years past.

    They are fine IF you keep them out of the rain (riding is fine, storage in the elements all the time, not so much) and maintain them properly-good oil, grease the cables, joints and fittings, keep proper tire inflation, etc.

    So pretty much the same extra care one must have with a Harley? LOL!~~

    It doesn't help Harley's.

    When I ride with Harley guys, they make me ride in back.

    Seems they're afraid if I get in front they may not be able to keep up.

    Besides, somebody has to pick up the parts that shake and vibrate off their bikes.

    The quality is horrible!
    Tires don't make that significant a difference on a light bike made for the street.

    We're talking under RD$40,000. A decent Yamahammer is twice that.

    One gets what one pays for, but my SPECIFIC point is that the quality of the recent series of Chinese bikes is far better than even 3 years ago. The value proposition on a Chinese vs. more expensive bike has narrowed greatly. I never said exceeded.

    Not everyone will pay big bucks for a better bike. It's nice to know that you won't be flushing $$$ down the Pelosi when you buy a new Chinese bike. Not like before.

    Any bike, given lack of security, will get stolen.

    BTW: only the larger Japanese bikes, generally those above 250cc, are made in Japan. The rest are made in China.

    The current generation of chinese motorbikes are based on the older suzuki and honda 125 to 250cc....the chinese bought the tools and design of the engines...the quality has improved a lot since. BMW builds the engine for the very expensive Dakar Motorbike in china.... My Japanese Yamaha C3 4 stroke, fuel injected, water cooled scooter I swore up and down was built in Japan...surprise surprise... Made in China...
    Iphones...made in china. Macbook Air? made in china...
    Even some of my not so cheap Carbon Fiber Freediving fins....made in china...
    Go figure...

Cant wait to see that day LMAO!!!
