::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG group - 200miles for a day to the seaside for biker meet

Suspected some pieces from UARS will be falling down to Vietnam area, we heading to Vungtau, the most potential place for that. Our idea is to see whether we could utilize the metals and others for our bikes decoration and modification... hehe...

4:30am, starting my Candy Red - remaining gas in the tank should be more than enough to reach the place:

Looking around for the falling pieces, damn difficult to see here:



Just saw the Truong Sa derrick barge with 600MTons for the main hook - where I had chance to work several years ago:



Line up:









He has been riding here the night before, staying here and waiting for us to come. He reported no bang or comet last nite. In general, no smurfs coming down there last night... heheh....




Dude, VFR Candy Red so obvious....!!

Our team were almost there. But there were still about 5-7 bikes still hanging around with breakfast or morning coffee as they had slept too late the night before:


Chit chat, as usual:


Hmm... Dont you search for the UARS pieces, guys!??:


What should I comment to the below photos? Just a small, tiny wish that all of those bikes are in my own garage!!! heheheeh......

Wow! Sportbikes and real helmets in Vietnam?!? That would be a blast to ride around on those.

I thought that it was near impossible to import bikes into Vietnam.

Xin chao! My girlfriend and I have been to Vietnam a few times and never saw any sport bikes. We stayed with family in the Cho lon district in HMC, and rode around on scooters visiting Danang, Vung Tau, etc. The biggest bike I ever saw was a 500cc cruiser (maybe an old Nighthawk?) and it looked like a giant among all the scooters. Seeing all of you guys riding your full size bikes makes me want to move there even more!

More pictures please!

Thanks man! Nothing impossible I would say. . Importation of big bikes to Vietnam have been doing for decades. There are now many big bikes club in Vietnam. However, up to now, only Ducati they open a dealer here.

Xin chào Sprk_sprd.
Nice to know that you have visited my Country. When did the last time you was here anyway?
As you can easily see the crowded traffic in Vietnam, especially Hanoi an Hochiminh City - that is reason why you did not see any big bikes in the City.
Normally, our clubs gather at some cafe' during weekend, or we go out of City very early morning for a weekend ride or a long ride.
Next time coming to Hochiminh City, I may show you some interest bigbikes place if you are interested.
Your all appreciation would make pics flowing then...

Put our gears on, preparing to be at the meeting place - where a Local bike club invited us to join:








Hey hey,... It must be fun here!


The place here is Vung tau City, a beautiful seaside city. A big bike club here celebrated their club anniversary so they invited our club to cheer with them there.

So, it's just a beginning for eye washing moment.

My Candy Red seemed to be very much smaller within the bundles of monsters:

Viethorse, like your ride reports are you doing a ride following the coast line anytime soon, would like to read more of your stories, and see pictures of the coastline beaches, towns, hotels.

Thanks pzs.
The thread with stories, pics of beaches, towns, hotels etc,... were not what I used to do. Sorry for that. I will try to do so when I could ride again.

A trike HD, but not the biggest one here:





Now we back to the place we were trying to find some falling pieces from UARS...
We could not find any. But we found a damn crazy thing down here:


Here it is:


Boss Hoss 8200cc trike bike 2007


No wonder that why this one has been taken so many photos:


17-A6 is the registration number of Thai Binh - my homeland - at the north of Vietnam:




Heart of the bike, 8.2L displacement, approx 4 times bigger than my Ford Escape 2.3L. Damn it!




Bike info (I purposely erased the VIN):


Damn big gas tanks with bundle of meters/gauges

Straight from the back


Oh yeah...........
