Hi Riders, I have been reading the forums, it sounds like you guys have done some great trips, I have learnt a lot from reading them. I am planning a big tourist trip (6+ months) with my girlfriend around most of South East Asia. We want to do Vietnam, Cambodia, Loas, Thailand and Malaysia. And we don't really want to be in a hurry. Reading these forums it sounds like Vietnam is impossible to either get a bike in or out of, so we were thinking of hiring bikes in Hanoi (or Saigon), then travelling to Saigon (or Hanoi). Then we were going to fly somewhere to buy bikes. After getting the bikes, we would do the other countries, eventually selling/gifting the bikes at the end. We are not looking for big bikes, and was thinking the smaller scooter end of the market (dream or wave) as they are easiest to use and like I said before, we are not going to be in a rush (though I am happy for advice on this too). Does anyone know which is the best city to legally purchase a bike so that it can be in our names and registered so we can cross borders? We are happy to fly anywhere from Singapore to Chang Mai. Thanks very much, Marty.
