Nope, it would be waaayy too big here, and you wouldn't be able to get tubes or tires or levers for it. Here's what you need for a motorbike tour in VN: Puncture resistant tires Tires with good wet grip Soft suspension with as much travel as possible A nice comfy seat Good ergonomics Narrow Tight turning radius Good lights Loud horn The speeds here are REALLY slow. In the cities you go between 20 and 40kph, the country is 40-60kph, and the main roads are 60-70kph. But none of these speeds are sustainable for more than 2 or 3 minutes at a time - there are endless tight corners, the corners are covered in gravel and cow manure, there is a bus coming at you for no reason, there is every farm animal known to man wandering across the road at any given time, there are dogs lying in the road for no reason, etc etc etc. You just can't cover ground quickly here, so there is no need for a fast bike. An XR150 is a great bike here, the only problem is that it is a little cramped for someone who is 6' tall, and the springs are so soft that I lose 50pct of the travel just sitting on it. I can't help but think that the old Kawi Super Sherpa would be the perfect bike here - air cooled, big displacement, counter balanced, low compression, carb'd. BUT since they never imported them there are no parts. The XR150 is really the only game in town if you are 5'10" or up.
