Question :: Vietnam by Motorcycle - or by the Bikers

Ok guys, it came to me from suggestion of a forum inmate that I should make this thread to collect all the information about Vietnam, a small Country where not many of you have visited.
Not too much ambitious for the purposes of this thread, just to make ease for you guys who may like to read about Vietnam, may like to travel to Vietnam, or even plan a serious ride in Vietnam.

Be noted that I am not a tourist Rep or something like that. I am purely a technical guy and love Motorcycle and traveling by Motorcycle.

I believe others willing to help me to put Links to their Vietnam ride report or something Vietnamese related.
Welcome to Vietnam by Motorcycle.

And my contribution.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=747927

A couple of thing would help Vietnam.
1: they recognized international drivers licence.
2: it was easier to take a bike into Vietnam.
These could only benefit tourism and the countries economy.

Hi guys,
Firstly I think this is a great thread. Very helpful and thank you to all who contribute. I am new to the whole motorbiking adventure forums, but I was wondering could anyone provide information on buying bikes in HCMC, particularly 125 Minsks and Honda Win 110.

1) What to look out for when buying the bike
2) What to get changed/replaced before starting your journey
3) Mechanics to go too for this
4) What spares to bring on the journey with you (e.g HCMC to Hanoi)
5) Any links to a place to buy paperback maps (I know of the garmin link)
6) Does anyone have experience of just using google maps on their smart phone for navigation?
7)any other advice.

I know some of these are very basic questions, but I am only learning and appreciate any info you can provide. Thank you :)
