  2. Hello Backdoorphil

    Thanks for the advice. But i have already i contact in Vietnam, That i got from YemPaul in Singapore. So this contact are already in progress whit all the papers :) But Thanks anyway .

    But is there nobody that now anything about the road condition on Route 8 in Laos and into Vietnam :)
  3. From the turn at Hwy 13 to the border, the road is sealed but some small portions are being re-worked. It's not a bad ride and goes quite quickly. Big bike - small bike, no problem.

    I've heard from 2 other rider groups this year that were turned around at the border as the Vietnam paperwork was not correct. It's a problem but if you guy has done it before, should be ok.
  4. Hello Jimoi
