Dominican Family on a motorcycle

Dominican Family Transportation

Transportation can be a little more interesting in the DR than you will find in the more developed countries. It is pretty common to see a whole family on one bike. Hard to believe but this is n’t the most crowded bike I have seen. :)

The family bike also doubles as a pickup. It’s not uncommon to see 15 gallon propane tanks, wash machines, pigs, calves, tables, couches, just about everything.

This is also considered a pretty good sized bike. Small scooters from 50cc to 100cc are very common as well as Honda Cubs and other very small bikes. For the average Dominican a 125cc bike is considered a large bike.
