    Default Motorcycle race?

    A Canadian neighbor just told me that there is going to be a motorcycle race of 10,000 motorcycles here in Puerto Plata today. Has anyone else heard of this? Or is it just a rum laden brain muttering?
    Thanks for any real info

    Sounds like a great idea! What could possibly go wrong?

    Well, for starters if 10,000 motos go to Malacon of PP there will be no more room to race... ! I think there are a couple of zeros to many there...

    They used to have dirt bike races in pop some where before you get to star hills , and they also had bike races on the malecon during samana santa , Benny Katz would win about every time, he was very well known.
