I am living in Vietnam now (been here a few weeks this time back but going for my second vn wife) I am quite familiar with VN......but not so much yet to add any details ....yet. I have a 5 year Visa and will marry again soon.
If anyone needs help, I am close to Phan Thiet, not too far from Vung Tau and HCMC.
I just bought a Honda XL250 Degree in hcm that is in desperate need of some TLC. Tonight the bike, my father in law and myself are going to Hcm to put the bike into Honda for an overhaul.....
In the 2 weeks I've had the bike......I had 7 flats in one day (seems the guy who sold me the bike forgot to tell me about the viscous leak happening)......then 7 miles from inlaws house.....there was a mountain in my way and couldn't seem to find the way around to home so.....I broke down and called for help....
Next was a totally destroyed main output shaft (where the front sprocket joins the engine).....that is the reason for taking it to hcm....I want to have a reliable bike and the motor and tranny are very strong.....but this issue isn't reassuring as I want to do S.E. Asia soon.
In total, I have had to push the bike 9 times...LOL
More exercise in VN in 2 weeks than I've had in 2 years!!
Once I find a good mechanic, I will post that info.......and anything else.....I can find out if I don't come across it myself.
