Sad to say you can't just rock up to the border of Vietnam & ride in.
You need approval first via a Vietnamese tour operator who gets your trio approved by the relevant authorities.

Confirmation of the Vietnam entry difficulties

Border Crossings

Vietnam is now possible should you apply 3 months in advance & buy a package tour with a guides & back-up vehicle.)
Rocking up at the border & asking politely does not work.
Don’t believe me about no entry – then look here Mr Wheezy & Thao & Under 175cc to Vietnam Forget It.
Or try these recommendations.


You could contact the guys at Moto-Lao to see if they are interested in buying your bike.

Not sure exactly which new rules & regulations you are referring to but in 2010 4 of us rode from Chiang Mai to Hanoi & back using an agent in Vietnam.

The trip report starts here
Chiang Mai - Hanoi Back Part 1

and ends here
Chiang Mai – Hanoi Back Part 7 Nong Khiew – Chiang Mai

Enjoy the report. It was a fantastic ride.
