    We hired Easy Riders Dalat and rode from Dalat to Nha Trang .

    You may contact them via email at...
    http://www.dalat-easyrider.com.vn/

    The guides speak english very well.
    We convinced them to ride on one bike while my wife and I rode on their other bike. Travel time is about 3 hours. We stopped along the way and had coffee...took us 4 1/2 hours.

    The Dalat to Nha Trang ride was really nice...was one of the highlights of our 3 week trip. Its definitely cool. Only catch..there was a part of the road 6 miles or so that was still being worked on...pot holes, bumpy, lot of dirt. I just navigated around the pot holes and blasted through it...my wife wasn't exactly happy about it...just held on.

    I did a quick search on google...found this person's website with pics. These people "biked" but at least you can see the pics. http://www.gang-gang.net/nomad/vietnam/viet04.htm

    Good luck!

    Thanks easwud, I really think that it is the best way to travel, cool breeze, the sights, the smells and the chance to stop wherever you like.
    Think the easy riders are a great way for everyone to enjoy this beutiful country.
    As a 'biker' I tend to go it alone, this can be a little tough and scary at times, but the locals that you meet at rest stops and fuel stops are always very interested in the lone traveller, so many times I have been welcomed with bia hoi,
    food and smokes.
    OOOOOOOHHHHHHH !!!!! I cant wat to get back, bye chris
