Daelim? I've seen chains on car tires for snow but chains on a motorcycle?
That can't be a factory electrical wiring job!
Another great ride post!! BUT it's not an adventure ride unless the top of the bike gets as dirty as the bottom of the bike!
Howdy Mr. Young,I am very very envious! Having been in Buôn Ma Thuôt, I recognize some of the places you're traveling.
Though I am a westerner, I lived in Huế in 2005-06 and return often to see old friends. Though I never did any adventure riding in the area you're in, I have been up into the mountains in the Nam Đông district southwest of Huế.
When I lived there, I owned a little Honda Dream - a typical 110 cc motorbike. When I came back to the US, I missed that little bike so much I bought a bike and got back into riding again. My avatar is my wife and I on the Honda during the rain season.
I might add, I never saw bikes like yours while I lived there. I saw a parked Harley once in Cần Thơ and a Goldwing in Huế, but never a V Strom or a Beemer.
I'm a little different than most people who visit Việt Nam as I am a combat veteran of the American War - and am even married to a woman who served there as an Army nurse. I even wrote a book about my experience of being a war vet who returned to live there - "Same River, Different Water: A Veteran's Journey from Vietnam to Việt Nam." ( http://www.amazon.com/Same-River-Different-Water-Veterans/dp/1467906921/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1372385421&sr=1-1&keywords=same+river+different+water )
I am watching this thread with a lot of anticipation - keep the photos coming. You're making me homesick! Tomorrow I ride from deep south Texas to Houston to spend some time with one of my former students who is now in graduate school at U Houston. Have a bowl of phở for me.
Unikey I found out about it while living in Huế and installed it on my laptop.. . . It's really surprising me when seeing your Vietnamese writing. I don't know how can you get it?! . . .
Negative, Doug. It's on the way from Ban Me Thuot to Dalat. Somewhere near Krongno area.Is this lake on the road from Đà Lạt to HCMC? Is there a big monument nearby?
I showed some friends the poster on your bike about the islands that China says they own. They agree with you - and I do too!
You make me homesick.
Thank you Sir.GREAT story and photos! I enjoyed the entire story - and thanx for the GPS tracks - gives me a good idea of where you were.
They were all hidden when we passing thru.Such large motors! Where are all the little Hondas, Suzukis and Jawas under 250cc?
