Experienced riders or advanced bikers are riders who have previous manual clutch motorbike riding experience for many years. In addition, most of them have ridden off-road motorbikes for some time in foreign countries. Therefore, these riders can handle most mechanic repairs for motorbikes if needed. Typically, they usually ride every day. The photo below shows a typical Vietnam motorbike tour, either on road or off road.
Experienced riders to Vietnam likely want to ride longer or on more challenging roads or tracks than the less experienced. However, speed limit here is quite low (60km/h). Riding over 200km/day is quite tiring because it takes up to six hours! Best of all, do some timing and routing before hand. If there is a rough itinerary, we will add comments and advice to make it even better.
Experienced riders also bring their own motorbike safety riding gear.
In general, Vietnam is a great country for motorbiking holidays but expect to cover less ground per day and don’t ride fast. Driver license and insurance are important. Therefore, please make sure you check these things before you ride.
Last yet very important, please check out some road rules before commencing your trips.
