    Rode a Honda Baja 250 from Hanoi to Mai Chau.... You can rent big bikes (250 cc) in Hanoi.... Its about a 3 hour ride one direction.... It takes a while to get out of Hanoi.... The weather can change dramatically along the way once you hit the mountains... The ride really gets good about an hour out of Hanoi... I rode alone and loved the ride.... ive got some pics, map images and GPS routes/tracks to share but can't figure out how to include them.[?]
