Wondering if there places to rent Big motorbikes, 400cc plus in Mui Ne ?
Simple answer NO.
And that goes for the rest of Vietnam.
A Vietnam licence to ride a big bike is very hard to obtain and very expensive.
Hence no market for hiring big bikes to.
173cc is the largest with most hire bikes being 110cc to 125cc.
Expect to be pulled over at police road blocks and without the correct paperwork having the bike confiscated at your expense.
In my experience, nobody pulls you over if you ride sensibly. Unless, of course, in Mui Ne.
But big bikes aren't readily available for renting. I bought mine from new. And i do have the paperwork.Edited: 10 December 2017, 13:11
Thanks for that
Cheers thought so.
Just got a tour booked with easy rider. Doubt we will have police issues as these Guys are usually connected
Most of the Easy Rider bikes are smaller than 175cc and can be driven with an A1 license. Which is what all Vietnamese have (or would have if they bothered at all).
In general they are much less law abiding than most westerners. They don't get hit as hard as we do when we overstep in the West.
And since it's a well known fact that a little coffee money can get you off the hook for minor infractions, they don't bother. Therefore, as sensible as the highway traffic code may be, it's virtually unknown to a very large part of the population.
The Easy Rider guys are licenced.
