    My wife and I have had some laughs at the Dong thing.
    We were in Korea and I had USD, Korean Won, and Vietnamese Dong in my wallet.
    I was trying to find some Won to pay for something and ended up with some Dong in my hand. She told me "You need to put your Dong away!" without realizing what she said. So I replied "But it's so biggg!".

    Thanks for the link.

    I will give her the TTR since it's already lowered. I originally wanted the XR250 for myself but couldn't find one with a registration card. The one down in HCMC looks to be in really good condition with recent engine refurbishment. I'm stil going to talk a look at the XT250. I can sell the TTR if she likes that one better.
    I was all set to get her the 125 but after riding from Hanoi, she won't be able to keep up on the more open stuff. Keep in mind, it's not like driving across the desert in Arizona or something but there were place where I was doing 100kph and could have gone faster.

    It's good to see you've been able to get the things you need in Vietnam.

    I really wish I could get up to north Vietnam this November, but I think that is unlikely.
    It's rainy season in Da Nang right now.
