Buying Motorbikes in Ho Chi Minh City – Travel Vietnam 2018
After a couple of days running around looking over and checking out a number of bikes in Ho Chi Minh City, we had found nothing that was going to work for us. We started to think Ho Chi Minh was never going to let us leave!
We weren’t being fussy, but we also weren’t prepared to start the trip off on a poor base. We had no intention of doing this trip on a Honda Win. While we know thousands of backpackers have successfully made it from one end of Vietnam to the other on a Win, ask them honestly over a beer after they have sold the bike and a large percentage will tell you the truth about what a nightmare it was!
The fact is you will see very few locals on Wins and the ones you do use them as cafe racers around the cities, no for long haul trips. Locals use Waves, Dreams, Winners, Exciters, etc….and so that is what we were looking for. Our hunt started out for Honda Dreams, but after no success we turned to Facebook and posted a wanted ad.
We received a reply from a couple whose Vietnam adventure was up and they were now in HCMC selling their two bikes. We organised a time to check them out and a deal was struck! Our adventure was now even closer to starting stage 2!
We’d love it if you liked and shared this video, so others who haven’t yet heard of us, also get a chance to share in the experience. Thanks 🙂

We are Leon and Tash, a New Zealand vlogging couple who set off on an amazing Vietnam adventure as fulltime travellers, backpacking Vietnam. But we weren’t going to travel to Vietnam for one of those ordinary backpacking Vietnam trips you hear about everybody doing, where they go for a couple off weeks and check out the beaches or maybe riding through Vietnam at such a crazy pace that they never get off the beaten track. No we want more than that.
Our Vietnam adventures start with learning the way of the locals, taking just enough time to figure out how things work, discover what the “Must see places in Vietnam” are and more importantly where Vietnam’s hidden gems are…
To do this, we moved to Danang Vietnam. The plan was to spend 3 months living in Da Nang, meeting and learning from locals about the culture, the amazing food, their way of living and what places they would recommend to travel in Vietnam.
And because Danang is in the middle of the country, we hoped we might meet other tourists or expats who were having their own Vietnam travel adventure or were at the halfway point of motorcycle riding through Vietnam and hear from them, what places they thought we must visit in Vietnam. Also, as new travel vloggers, having a base there meant we could try things like doing Da Nang Vietnam travel vlog or creating a Danang Vietnam travel guide, before also taking on the stresses of fulltime travel.
Then in month 4, that’s when the real Vietnam adventure begins. With our new list of must see places, we will head to Saigon and buy a couple of motorbikes. to start our Vietnam road trip!
Motorcycle riding through Vietnam seems like one of the most hectic, crazy and chaotic things anyone could do, but we can’t wait!! And we wont be following a simple South to North / Saigon to Hanoi route, we plan on doing more like a figure 8, so that our travel in Vietnam will cover both the inland and coastal areas of this amazing country.
So can we still say we are backpacking Vietnam? Or should we be telling people our travel in Vietnam is a motorcycle trip through Vietnam? We’re not sure, but what we do know is, our Vietnam road trip is going to cover over 6000km’s from Saigon right up to the famous waterfalls of Ban Gioc near Cao Bang, round the northern point of the Ha Giang loop and everything else we can access in between.
So we hope you’ll join us, the New Zealand vlogging couple, on our Vietnam adventure by clicking subscribe to join the Tribe and experience our travel in Vietnam..
