I arrive in Hanoi on Tuesday and I'm wanting to do the north to south ride but I'm a solo traveller and have a feeling it will be disastrous with me getting lost every 5 minutes so I was wondering is there any guided tours that do it? And where is the best place to buy a cheap motorbike?
Hi. Why not consider taking a tour with the Dalat Easy Riders.? They take all the stress out of motorbiking because you will be the passenger!
You can check out their own website and also this blog post which was written about the Dalat easy Riders after the blogger took a tour with them. Useful article. Hope this helps. No need for a driver's license either!
there were some posts on here that somewhere dis-appeared, anyone know why?
there was a link to a couch surfing regarding motor-biking in vietnam and other info

@ryder80 There was a post from a Vietnam-based business that was deleted yesterday. This is the Couchsurfing link they posted: http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=26184 it looks to point to some Saigon-related Motorbike group.
Hope that helps.
