A friend and I were traveling SE Asia by Minsk. This is the story of one hell of an adventure trying to get these bikes and ourselves through some rough roads and riding conditions from Sapa to Lai Chau.
The roads ahead of us were literally being built in front of us and what we thought was to be a highway according to the Road Atlas of Vietnam we had turned out to be in construction.
