Yeah I have seen the thread on ADV. The bike wasn't rattly. All I've done is put on a decent set of bars and some bark busters... great for the cities

The pics are from the Ha Giang Loop. Unbelievable riding destination. Been a few backpackers go over the cliffs recently. I heard it's unrideable at the moment with the cold weather and clouds. Currently in Nha Trang enjoying 30+ degree weather

Been to Vinperland at Phu Quoc and Bana Hills in Da Nang, so might as well tick Nha Trang VP off the list too and keep the missus happy haha. Been here two years in April and looks like I'll be here a lot longer yet

Sounds good man. I'm not keen at all on "buying" land here lol. Maybe an apartment as home base or even rent out as an Air BNB... they make some good coin from the tourists. Renting seems like the best option. Love Da Lat. Been there a few times.... peaceful, nice climate, views for days....

Will be in HCMC for a while this year. Where are you going to be based when you get return?

BTW, you are right about Phu Quoc... we were going to go back this year (spent 10 weeks there in 2016) but all the locals are complaining about over development. Con Dao sounds like the go for a decent island escape now.
