know some guys
I just got back form HCMC saigon, and was renting bikes through the highlands, however, On my travels, met these americans on a russian minsk, kinda popular over there with westerners, and they did all vietnam in two months on this bike, (which they bought for 600 US and sold for 100) but they flogged it before going to cambodia as they said they heard it was a pain in the neck to cross borders, if you do try, then make sure you have the registration paper for the bike, the other thing is, you cant actually legally obtainb a driving licence, or permit, in vietnam, at all as a foriegner, or so I have been told. But noone cares, howerver, border crossings may be a bastard for this very reason. not really sure. hey when your in saigon look around at those 60's honda two strokes you see around, they are soo wicked and i want one real bad...... traffic in saigon is nuts, gotta love it. oh yeah there is this aussie outfit called saigon scooters who are super knowledgable and can maybe help you out with info if necc.
