I'm planning on taking a motorbike trip from Saigon to Danang. Then from Danang take the train back to Saigon.
Since I will be renting the motorbike I would have to bring the motorbike back on the train. Anyone know if this would be a problem and should I book the train ahead of time? I'm planning on leaving Danang the first week of February.

I would advise going to the train and asking or having a guest house call for you. I did see several mototbikes on some of our minibuses...

Shouldnt be a problem. If its a smaller one you might even be able to take it with you on a bus, rendering a cheaper ticket.
Be prepared to wait one day to retrieve the bike though as its not always on the same train as yourself.
And yes, booking the train ticket atleast one day ahead is advised. Mind that the luggage office might close earlier then the trainstation too, (around 4 oclock i think) so that you dont leave it to long in the afternoon to get your ticket.
Safe trip, its a beautiful one!

You can certainly transport your bike by train, but I remember reading somewhere that the bike is shipped on a different train to the passenger one -- ie there is one train for freight and another for passengers. I'm not sure if that is the case on all the routes though.
