    purchased a last minute flight to Hanoi. Was thinking of doing Ho Chi Mihn road, from Hanoi to Saigon or vice versa, but basically just looking for some good riding. Anyone want to get together pm me.
    thanks

    I just finished riding for a month in Vietnam and enjoyed every second of it. Magnificent country!! Ho Chi Minh trail is a must. Are you planning to buy one if the $250 Honda/Chinese wins? I don't remember seeing any rental companies, but I wasn't looking. I also didn't see a bike bigger than a 150. Maybe a Harley or something in Ho Chi Minh. But 99.9% of the bikes are 125's or smaller. Perfect for those roads. Have fun!

    Hi. I am arriving 29th January for 4 weeks. Arrive and leave via HCMC so I am looking at doing a 3 week loop up the coast and back via inland. Camping along the beach area so taking small tent. When are you leaving ?, May be meet up on return back to HCMC. Some really good back roads if you do planning on Google earth then routes into GPS to follow if lost.
