Flag of Vietnam  ,
Friday, June 17, 2011

This entry is devoted entirely to the motorbikes of Vietnam. It is a picture gallery of the overloaded bikes I was able to grab my camera out in time for. 

Anyone considering a 2 wheeled mode of transport and worrying that you couldn't just pop out to Tesco's and get your weekly shop should take heart by these pictures which proves that in fact you could do your months shop and still get it home. (I'd love to see a UK policemans face if anyone actually loaded a bike up like this. 

See also the video of Traffic in Saigon at a roundabout, and wonder at how no one that I've seen at least has crashed! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmeJDxQ04Os

These pics are brill!
I tried to get some half as good as these when I went to Saigon, but these are far better. You need an observant eye, time, patience, quick reactions, a good camera - and a good deal of luck. Apart from that it's easy!
Well done!!
