[QUOTE=eatpasta;21696099]Hey I went to college in Chico, and my wife is Vietnamese. What the hell do you guys do in the summertime? I mean, besides your wife feeling like she is back in Saigon.... you don't put on jackets and RIDE do you?@!

I had to dust this off and share. This was from our trip in Feb. 2012. We too stayed 6 weeks was the first time my wife had hugged her parents in 7 years. We got married officially here too a couple years before, but just down at the courthouse where we signed our names

Her and her brother are on the bike in front of us and I'm riding pillion on her dads bike. We were headed to get our wedding photos done. It was a 45 min scooter ride and I got her dress and my tux in a duffel on my back.

For those that don't know it is illegal to ride a motorized scooter there without a helmet. The helmets do not have a standard, so most are fashion statements and are a very thin, plyable piece of plastic. Also, there is no passenger limit per scooter and Children are not required to wear any sort of helmet...It is not uncommon to see a family of 4 scooting by at 35 mph on 1 bike. Watch for the guy carrying 40 cases of beer at 6:28.
