If you're in the mood for some mexican food while in Cambodia, go visit the fine establishment of Maybe Later in Sihanoukville. The taco commander Casey will take care of you

When using steel against al,use al washers as a parasitic that way they take the chemical action verses the hard parts,use a zinc chromate primer on the bolts and washers when installing . Do like more clearance on parts that may take a hit.

So funny watching them all working on the floor. Haven't they ever heard of cinder blocks and 2x4's?

Do you see anyone freak out in the traffic? You know, go postal?
I get anxiety just watching it.

Thanks for sharing your adventure.

Outstanding

Sweet video Noah. This just proves that it doesn't matter where you are, or what you are riding, good attitude and a sense of humor is key. I love the way you just roll with the punches and keep smiling.

Thanks for all the work on the ride report, I enjoy it immensely.
Ride safe.

If that's your everyday reality, (and that traffic is similar to lots of other parts of SE Asia and South Asia too) then you don't freak out.

Vietnam's small motorcycle limitations don't look that crazy when you consider the amount of bikes they have on the roads.

Gen is right. I forgot to write this, but it is a good point. They should NEVER EVER EVER let big bikes into VN. So many people would die. They bump into each other on scooters. I can't imagine what would happen if everyone had a 100hp street bike.

Big Bikes in 'Nam = Bad News Bears

I second/third this motion Noah. We all love big bikes, no question about it, but in 'Nam, big bikes would be a message for disaster... not a 'potential' disaster, but true ugly disaster.

Scoots have been in Vietnam for years on end and the country is fine-tuned with them in the mix. VietHorse is saying that big bikes are getting closer and closer to being a.o.k. This is a scary thought IMHO... Particularly for the first few years when/if it happens...

Noah - good work on your 'Nam Video#2, very enjoyable. As well, and not to sound like a broken record, but it is always a pleasure to read your stories and to see your photos and vids, such a great outlook.

Keep up the great work and continue to enjoy your days on the road. I always look forward to the next post.

Cheers Bro

Cool video. I love the scooters flowing along like molecules of water, one stream meets another.
