After replacing or fixing many broken/ worn/ missing/ cracked/ bent/ corroded/ burnt/ leaking/ uneven parts, our bike is now almost ready for new adventures.
Special thanks go to my father, who dealt with most of the problems!
After defending their country against the French and the Americans, now the Vietnamese are defending against big engine motorcycles. Apparently, no people managed to bring such bike and travel before 2009. Now, according to gt-rider.com it might be possible, but only with special approval from Ministry of Tourism, the Department of road control, the police, the military and the Trade Ministry.
Since we have no connection at the Ministry of Tourism, the Department of road control, the police, the military nor at the Trade Ministry, we had to rely on Voyage Vietnam to obtain the necessary approvals.
Hopefully they will do it! Otherwise, Vietnam shall be cancelled and the trip will start from Cambodia.
