Photographer's Note

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,

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.
