    Spotted in Hanoi a couple of weeks ago, & part of our ride Chiang Mai - Hanoi & return.

    Hint, it's the one on the left & it was the size of the tyre that first caught our attention...

    Who said there were no big bikes in Hanoi?

    Now who can answer; What is it doing in Vietnam?

    I'll try to answer that. Despite,or maybe because of their late development, the Vietnamese are passionate about one-up-man-ship, designer labels and status symbols. During recent work there I saw Rolls Royce's, Bentley's and Ferrari's. If you only have $50,000 to splash out on transport you are never going to cut it with a car. But this is novel, eye-catching and probably the only one in town, so far. Whatever turns you on!

    I would say that is a fair answer. I believe that trait is probably not limited to Vietnam, but has surfaced in most of SE Asia.
