So I arrived in Saigon last night at 9pm. Managed to meet some people and went out that night. Got pretty wasted and on the way home was raped buy a Vietnamese masseuse.

Anyway, next day met this crazy but nice guy called chow who drove me all over the city to buy a bike. Ended up meeting these 2 young Vietnamese mechanics and they had a Honda win 110cc in decent nick. The guy took me on the back of it and man...the traffic there combined with his crazy driving had me puckering good. Motorcycle gear is virtually unheard of here. Got the bike for 9million dong which is like $400 US. I went to give mr.chow 200,000 dong but he demanded 1,000,000. So he did help me alot...so I pulled out my dong and gave it to him good.

Anywho this is what I got, let the adventure begin.

Very cool. What's the plan?

An item on my bucket list is to land in Saigon, pick up a little bike as you just did, ride up the cost to Hanoi, then down to Bangkok. I think it might actually happen next year.

Post lots of pics. I'll be jealous.

Well the plan is that there is no plan. I'm gonna spend a few days in Saigon because it's a frigging blast and cheap as! The people are really friendly for the most part.

I'm just gonna pack up my bags and start riding north. I find it hard to plan a trip for somewhere where I have never been, best just to wing it. I got an old Chilean girlfriend flying over to meet me here in a month.

It's crazy riding here. It's freaking chaos but it just works. I feel a lot safer than riding in the city in Australia because cars are far outnumbered by bikes and the speeds are a lot slower. It's really fun.

Your plan sounds solid Le slid you should just do it, no ifs, buts or maybes. You can't take a bike from Vietnam into Thailand but you can go combodia and laos

Sounds cool, I've been alot in Taiwan, mainland China, but not V.N. or Thailand, etc.

I'm more curious about the 'raped by'- male, female?

Anyways, be safe, have fun

So far people are really friendly and the city is really nice. I stay one more day to get some tools and stuff and pack my bike. Then I will pick a road and ride north!

I had 12 beers and I went for an innocent massage. To my horror she did unspeakable things to me, against my will, ofcourse.

To top things off she tells me she is a lady boy when all is said and done. To clarify she was NOT , I repeat not a lady boy. Was nothing but a tasteless joke.

The Honda win 110cc is an absolute beast! The sheer torque and power of the thing will have your wheels turning at quite a decent pace. All jokes aside it's really not that bad and the one I got seems to be in good condition. Forks are fine, sprockets , tires and chain are all good. Apparently have to dump the oil every 500km.......oh well oil change cost 80 000dong= $4 US. Can you imagine taking your bike to the dealer for an oil change they say that will be $4 please.

:spit Love the story telling. Hope you have fun there. I spent a few months in northeast Thailand and had a blast.
Thanks man, I'm sure I'll have many more stories of my wacky adventures for you guys ha.

I haven't been to Thailand but I've heard it's a lot more well traveled than Vietnam. I plan to cross into Laos and Combodia too!

Ah sorry guys to keep you hanging. Been such a crazy few days in the best kind of way. I met an American guy who bought a bike the same bike the same time as me and we road out together. He bought the same bike as me at half the price. It,s chinese, it eats fuel, leaks oil , sounds like a can of bolts and is a bitch to start

We have a go pro set it to take a photo every 30 seconds so we have like 3000 photos and we're going to make a video.

Yesterday my bike started to develop a wobble, I carried on think maybe the rim was buckled. Checked the next day and the tire itself was completely warped and messed up is suspect from sitting for so long. So we left our hotel on the river in this village. We stopped at 3 mechanics and then the fourth one had a tyre for me. He had the new tyre on in less than 5 minutes by hand. It cost me 300,000 dong= $14 US.

Other than that bike has been really good. Starts quicker than my gixxer does. I was a bit skeptical about getting a 110 but it's plenty for over here.

So far the trip has been so amazing..im lost for words everyday it gets better. The people here are super welcoming and helpful.

There are some roads that are just amazing up mountains and some really cool back roads and dirt trails. We stay completely off highway and go the long way. Haven't seen any other westerners in a few days haha

You've got me psyched. Looks like an awesome adventure.

No food pics?
The food here is actually the best. The vegetables and meat taste so.much better somehow.

Not ones without my face in them. I thought it was a thing here not show your face. Or is everyone just ugly as shit? I'm kidding haha. Still got 25 days in Vietnam and then laos and then Cambodia, so there are many more photos to come. I'll get some food pics for ya

That's some fucked up shit. BTW if I was ever gonna be executed, going into my 50s, the merciful way to go would be death by a couple hits of extasy, viagra and 6 college cheerleaders. Yeah, that's how I want to check-out.

I'm sure I can arrange that when I travel out there next winter, hopefully without checking out.
