hm, when did your last visit? My wife has her 125cc scooter since 2005. .
Well, there were lots of big bike imported into Vietnam since the last 7-8 years.
See the link # III.2 from my signature, you may think you are outdated for decades.
Visited in 2011 and have to admit I did not look real hard for a big bike. I mainly kicked back on Phú Quốc Island. Would love to come back and ride a real bike around for a few weeks.

Dang... Look at the photo - poor the scooter.
No wonder that you could not see any big bike around Phu Quoc Island. That's definitely not a place of bikers.
Come back, get a round Hochiminh City and I can show you where all the big bike hidden.

VietHorse,
next time I am in Vietnam, I'll ask your advice on finding a bigger bike. I have to admit, that scooter was a little small for me!

Really enjoying the pictures and the RR. Best wishes to you and safe travels.

Sort of special dish there - beef noodle with two bows:

Thanks.
As I have stated somewhere on ADV, I still lack of skill to capture normal life scenes in my photos. It usually be done pretty well if the photographer is a foreigner, or a real tourist. Now here I am a local, so normally I took all riding photos, not the surrounding lives. If I could do so, the thread will be more worth it to view.

5 bikers left for the ride. We were going down hill, toward the Hochiminh City.

An open area among the mounts:

Some local houses:





They spend their lives floating like that, don't give a **** care to the noisy and dirty city:
