would love to know the most interesting place everyone has ridden a bike overseas? I got to ride a 200 cc russian minsk bike in northern vietnam near the chinese border. no helmet, no gear just tshirt and shorts and camera for a few days. did a 35 km hill climb up and down from a town called lao cai to the mountain town of sapa. the traffic there has to be believed. also, with the use of the horn over there it must be a cultural thing. they dont use it to flip people off like i do here, more a "here i am, overtaking you". no road lines, no helmets or speed limit. a 6 goot 3 white guy riding around these towns by himself was getting lots of looks. even funnier was the the bike's kickstart fell off so i had to get a jump start. about twenty guys were laughing at me as i ran beside the bike before jumping on....quite an experience... anyone else got any tales of riding overseas?
