Photographer's Note

Hi,
Okay, I know it's just a motorcycle but I'm going to post some of my photos of NW. Vietnam and some of them wouldn't be possible without this bike so I need to give credit where credit is due.

It's a Russian made, tough workhorse with two strokes, 125cc. The name is Minsk. This is the most popular trail bike in Vietnam. I really like this bike. Although the engine is a bit too small compare to what I prefer, but in Vietnam you can't find a bigger engine to buy or rent because the police bikes are 250cc and they want to make sure they can catch you :)
This bike along with NW Vietnam roads, especially Route 6A, pushed my limits mentally and also my riding skills. I traveled very long hours almost everyday for ten days and all Mr Minsk wanted was gasoline (mixed with 5% oil). He never broke done or complained... Next I'll post the moments we shared.

Best Regards,
Skye



PS:
The location here is actually in the state of "Hoa Binh" not "Ha Tay" but it's not listed under the Vietnam states so I picked the closest state to this location.
