2 Minsks for sale in Hanoi from 20th Nov

Posted by P4p3Rc1iP on 15/11/2009 at 22:11

We have 2 Minsk 125cc Motorbikes for sale in Hanoi from the 20th of November. We rode them from Saigon to Hanoi (We're in Hai Phong at the moment). They're both in good condition, one is a little customized. It's been given a bit of a chopper look with a new army green paintjob, a spring seat, saddlebags, and an old Russian rocket launcher for the exhaust! The other one is basically standard, red colour and with the word Minsk (in Russian letters, looks kinda like "MNchk") on the side. ...

Renting a motorbike in Hoi An to Nha Trang

Posted by kendoll on 24/10/2009 at 10:23

Hi, I'm travelling with my boyfriend in January next year for 4 weeks in Vietnam. We are travelling from Hanoi down to HCMC and then continuing on from there. We know that to reach Nha Trang from Hoi An we have to travel back to Da Nang (which we would like to avoid). Riding sounds like a fun alternative to flying so we were thinking of riding from Hai An to Nha Trang but we have the following questions: 1. How do we rent the bike in Hoi An and then return it without riding it ...

Rental Contracts

Posted by GazzShaw on 9/9/2009 at 20:24

Hi I'm currently in Chiang Rai and want to do the Chiang Rai loop. I have rented a Honda motorbike from my guesthouse (Chart Guesthouse) and have a question about the rental contract. I have bought insurance that means I will only be liable to pay 3000 baht in case of an accident. The contract does say that I am liable for 20,000 Baht if the bike is stolen. I thought this would be included in the insurance as it is outside my control. Is this standard practice? Can anyone please provide ...

Purchasing tailor made motorbike boots

Posted by mattd82 on 21/9/2009 at 12:07

Hi I've got a pretty good description, image and dimensions of some motorbike boots I would like to get. I was hoping that someone might be able to recommend somewhere in Viet/Thai/Cam where I would be able to get some decent quality leather ones made.

Moped riding in Laos

Posted by kbr2009 on 17/8/2009 at 14:40

We have just over a week in Laos at the start of November and were wondering whether renting mopeds is plausible to travel independently between Vientiane and Luang Prabang, spending a night in Vang Vieng and maybe somewhere else en route. Neither of us are overly experienced on mopeds other than casual holiday use - though both are experienced car drivers and sensible road users. Would be grateful for any advice on whether this is a realistic idea or not! Any recommendations on what to se ...

Motorbiking in Asia do a tour or buy a bike?

Posted by asiabiker on 10/8/2009 at 10:05

Hi. I've a eight week trip coming up covering Cambodia and Vietnam and have been reading the motorbiking Q&A with interest. My main dilemma is should I do a few short tours or just buy a bike and go for it? It seems both Cambodia and Vietnam have a lot of operators, with probably Offroad Vietnam and Dancing Roads being the most interesting, but I was wondering what kind of extra value you get out of a tour? Is having a guide especially important? I guess in Cambodia a lot is dirt biking ...
