Re: ::: From rainy Cambodia to sunny Vietnam

Okay, you win.
However, it may be the way someone chose to ride over here.
To me, that clip series is not more than a funny stuff, which is designed for you to laugh at.
To me, the famous guys in the clip looked like a group of clowns. The way they dressed and ride like spitting to the local cultural and traffic rules.
We don't do that, right?

Re: ::: From rainy Cambodia to sunny Vietnam

Finally, we reached the border gate at noon time.
Well, if you familiar with international trips, you may know that crossing border is always a big issue.
In both LWR and LWD, they have big crew doing all passport, visa, permission stuff for the team, even months ahead departure, but they still face with border problem.
We go as the flower blown by the wind, no detail plan, no preparation for paperwork, permission application, etc... So, we are prepared with hours waiting at the gate. It's fun though.



Wish I just climb up here and cross the border without doing any paperwork :



W-T-F!!??



He was taking out his cigarette:





I don't smoke :

Pictures at the Cambodia gate:











It's very small and rural gate, so there is almost no traffic between Cambodia and Vietnam there.

I agree. They are that way everywhere they go.
I still wish I could experience the wondrous sights and sounds of Vietnam and Cambodia for myself.

Vey eager to see how you got on with the custom's officials and process.

Re: ::: From rainy Cambodia to sunny Vietnam

Yeah, we out of Cambodia.
Now we are in front of Vietnam:



It was dry since we reached the border. It's Vietnam Checkpoint office. Quite a big one, in comparison with the traffic here.



People passed the gate. Bikes were still at the other side:



Waiting....



Waiting...



Waiting...



And waiting...



A friend of us rode about 200km to meet us at the border. So great guy:



Another team is waiting for us approx 200km away, they are having lunch. Waiting for us to confirm we crossed the border than they will come to the nearby City.
Friend's bike proved that he has been thru a not easy road in the rain::



This bro get a motor taxi to buy lunch for all:



****, too hungry... Sorry, normally I don't look that bad:



The other guys, looked worse, right?

Re: ::: From rainy Cambodia to sunny Vietnam

Okay, finally. Yeah, ****, we made it to get all our bikes crossed the border, after almost 4 hours waiting and searching for helps.





We called our friend from Nha Trang, they are around 200km away the muster point. It was almost 5PM.

And we enjoyed our 50km to the muster point in rain, fog and dark:







Another finally of the day, we made it to the hotel just after 6PM.:



It 's dark when we checked in:

Re: ::: From rainy Cambodia to sunny Vietnam

Can you see the hotel front yard? It made from granite or ceramic. And that's stupid idea, really stupid.
You know why? Because it is very slippery when being wet. I and my buddies were almost had a mishap when entering this yard by turning around the water pond at the middle. Stupid design.



Our Nha Trang friends arrived around 8PM:



They also almost had problem with the slippery yard:





We went for dinner out by taxi. Then brought some food, got some beers from hotel restaurant and had good time until after midnight.
****, we could not finalized our route for the day after

I like it, too. I hope the Chinese "political correctness" police don't have a long reach.

<cut>
I thought it was from the rain, it looked like it was under water. Even though very pretty, I have never seen a parking lot like that. I bet they use it for outdoor parties and put tables out there. Stupid for a parking lot.

Teaser post and photos only here. I will do a ride report when I return.

Longest RTE I've ever done (actually maybe the first). Technically a FlyTE-RTE including the 30 hr total travel time to Saigon.

First stop of the day for breakfast.




Trung and his son Bond





View from breakfast the next morning

10th anniversary of ACE MTSG, Trung's ride club. He was instrumental in the forming of it and manages their website. It stands for ACE Mo To (two word term for motorcycle) and SG stands for Saigon.

They invited a few other clubs to their event to celebrate with them; Ducati Riders, ST Riders and Harley Riders. Had attendees from Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and of course Vietnam.

Give me a week or so and I'll post up a new thread with my trip and ride report.
