    Default MOTORCYCLE for cruising around DR

    Posted before about moto a while back. Since then, bought a moto (Honda CRF250) in the US and learned how to ride. Looking for a moto here of around 200-250cc, used bike, OR if people have bought the cheaper Chinese offroad version and have had success, then possibly that. I believe they are around 90,000 pesos.

    Looking to spend $3000 or less for an offroad 4 STROKE THAT WILL BE USED MAINLY OFFROAD, NOT ON TRAILS SO MUCH AS CAMPO ROADS. Obviously, these can be super rough and steep, therefore the offroad bike. I WILL NOT be riding hard, just exploring around the campo further than my mountain bike can take me and scouting new trails/areas for mountain bike riding.

    I am not mechanical, so something that won't need much work. I looked at a 2005 Yamaha Serow. They are low maintenance. Opinion on that??

    Anybody know of a bike for sale, please let me know. 4 Stroke, around 250cc. I am now in Cabarete til Saturday, back to Mao, Valverde Sunday. Yes, I know the roads are dangerous here. ...thanks for your time, PM me if you want.

    look up MotoCaribe Tours.... and write them.... use my name.
    Robert will answer you.

    He has a new bike that will fit your bill..... might be a touch over budget, but let him explain.
    Could be worth a bit more for reliability.

    He knows his stuff....



    here we are having fun..........

    Yes the Serow is an excellent bike. Many in Jarabacoa.

    People often talk about what kind of business to open here in the DR. Why not a motorcycle factory? I know it would cost a lot more than a pizza joint or even than a strip club, but would be unique and nothing Fausto is going to open up next door.

    The term cruiser usually refers to a certain bike with windshield and saddle bags made for over the road trips. Starting with a Yamaha six fifty or a Honda Shadow of the same size or a bit bigger on up to the 1800 cc bikes. These are verey scarce ere, and not what you are looking for I don't believe.

    Just found today a Honda Tornado. Seems like a good choice also. Maybe a bit heavy. At $3400, a bit more than I want to spend, but looks nice. I'd guess the price would come down some.
