I decided to look into motorbikes while in Vietnam after reading about the central highlands before our trip. I found River's Easy Rider website (http://www.vietnameasyrider.com/) and contacted him, he responded quickly after every email and custom-designed our trip from Mui Ne to Nha Trang over three days fitting our needs (several of us wanted to ride our own motorbikes and others wanted to be passengers). Our group of 7 loved every minute of it and we saw some things and met people we would have never experienced had we been on our own. River seems to know everyone along the way and regularly stops at farms, factories and plantations to let you know all about the area and how the people there make a living. He's an incredibly talented man too speaking about five languages and even played songs on a guitar for us when we'd stopped for coffee breaks. Once our group of 7 arrived in Nha Trang we had enjoyed the time with him so much that we booked another four days riding to Lak Lake, Buon Ma Thuot, Kontum and on to Quang Ngai before meeting other friends in Hoi An. River went out of the way to take us to his parent's house who made us the best meal we ate in Vietnam and were genuinely delighted to welcome us into their home. The time we spent with River was without a doubt the best time we had in Asia and even once we'd left the Easy Rider tour River kept in contact, negotiated taxis for us over the phone with drivers that didn't speak English and sometimes just called to make sure we were having a good time. I cannot recommend Easy Rider high enough and you should send River an email if you're thinking about motorbike tours, you won't regret it.
