After so many trips that I have felt like I was riding with you on your reports, tipping a beer with you in Vietnam will feel like meeting a best friend for the first time.

Thanks.
If you visit Vietnam, especially some southern villages, you can easily notice some places called floating villages. And the people live there, on their boats, generation after generations.
10 years back, Govt. provide many support to them, especially schooling for kids, medicals to them, fresh water and so...

Thank you. Any date of your visit? Don't tell me that I gotta fly to Hanoi to see you there.

Really loved this RR, I think that area is some of the most beautiful country that I have ever seen. I was flying all over that part of the country 47 years ago. I started in the Tuy Hoa area and flew in the mountains from there to Tay Nihn. I lived in Buon Ma Thuot, Ninh Hoa and Na Trang also Phan Rang.

I loved the flying there because it was so green and beautiful, Lots of changes. I would love to visit again but am into my 70's so don't know about motorcycles and the tour companies want to use 5 star hotels and airlines to get around the country. Not my cup of tea I would rather walk and use the little guest houses all over the country. well I can still read your reports and Dream. Thanks for the great work.

Nice pictures and I can imagine the rides were exhilarating.

I have lived in Vietnam for a few years and had the understanding that there was a law disallowing the private ownership of bikes above 150 or 175 cc unless you had a "special permit".

Would be good to know how I can rent a nice GS or even a Versys the next time I'm there.
