Hi all

I'm flying to Saigon on Nov 13th. I want to start motorbike trip there.

Is it safe to travel solo? Is there a place in Saigon where i can met other travellers with bikes?
What kind of bike would you recommend: Minsk or Honda scooter?
How many hours|kilometers a day will i be able to do?

Thanks. Marek
