Oren, you are possibly in Hanoi by now. If not, stand by: you are in for an entertaining time. I hired a bike in Hanoi a couple of years ago and rode back and forward across the city several times. The hire bike was a 125 custom called a Fungus or something, the gearchange was upside-down and the bike was clearly designed by the same bloke who did the Austin Allegro. The traffic in Hanoi, about 18 hours a day, consisted of millions and millions of small bikes (including quite a few Funguses), pushbikes and rickshaws careering along in massive swarms, all doing about 15 mph, merging and meshing, and amazingly there were no accidents, even at the totally chaotic crossroads! Occasionally a big truck would plough a swathe through all this: I was expecting it to leave a mangled pulp behind, but no - amazingly the swarm just parted and closed again behind the truck.
Moto ergo sum
