    Hi!
    I have one Honda Win to sell. I bought it in Vietnam and i am travelling since 2 weeks in Laos. It is a great fun to drive here a motorbike. Maybe my best experience in Asia.
    The bike is in a good condition, i did not have any problems with it.
    I will be in a few days in Vientiene and i would like to sell it there.

    my number: 02096171005, email : slavka@gmx.de (better you call me, because in many small places they do not have internet)

    Hi im affraid i cant buy your lovely bike, but i do have a question if you could help me out? im planning on buying a bike in Hanoi vietnam and riding it south and idealy would cross into laos, cambodia and thailand but i have concerns over crossing borders.

    Did you go through cambodia? which border crossing did you use? did you have any trouble when taking the bike over the borders?

    your help would really be apreciated.
    thankyou.

    Hi!
    I did not go to Cambodia with the bike, but i met few people who were going to do this. It should be no problem to cross the border to cambodia.
    The same with the Laos border. Though some treads tell about a problems with Laos border police because of Vietnamese bike, i did not have any problems at all. With a right papers i was done in 5 minutes. I crossed the at Na Maew/ Nam Xoi.
    The only problem might be to cross to vietnam with a laos bike. But with my vietnamese bike it is no problem too :) .To ride a vietnamese bike seems to be the best way to travel in the region.

    greetings

    Shoestringer, you will not be able to sell your bike legally in Lao, Vietnam papers or not.

    @shoestringer: at the best case you get a small registration( i don't now how to describe) paper and a book where you can get a stamp, when you cross the border.but normally you don't get a book in Vietnam. if you cross the border then, maybe the police ask you for 10 dollar or something like this. no problem!

    @rufus:what is legally in lao??? i was stopped 2 times by police in Lao and they even did not ask my for my driver license, bike papers.... only passport! one police officer offered to buy my bike for 150 dollar! they have been very friendly!
    legally?? we are not in Europe or States!
