Im currently in Hanoi and have finished my journey from the south, Saigon to the north, Hanoi and now selling my russian beast for $300 or best offer (any offers welcome within reason).
Its been an amazing adventure and riding through Vietnam by motorbike makes regular travelling on bus and train etc pale in comparison. The sights, sounds and fresh air rather than air con and the locals you meet on the way will be missed sorely, but need to sell in order to move on to Laos.
The bike is in great working order and has started first time everytime and is real quick too!Gears work perfectly, all buttons and switchs work, headlight works. I will be including the elastic straps bought to hold on my rucksack and spare electric box and small spanner. My bike is a tad customised as has a battery installed for the lighting so doesn't just rely on the generator.
Ill also include a free beer and good talk if wanted about where to see and what routes etc if needed.
The only thing missing is the front right side indicator which broke off unfortunately and can be fixed or replaced for like a dollar, so can either deduct the buck or get it done if you really want it. I would say that indicators don't really do much in Vietnam anyway and never used them. The horn is the weapon of choice in any vehicle out here!
My Visa is running out on the 27th April, so immediate contact would be great and if needed can send pictures or ship the bike to train stations and can let you know how much it costs etc!
