    Hi All,

    I am about to do a Q-Ride course in a couple of weeks and thought I would show you a video of my first attempt at riding in traffic on the streets.

    Its one of the streets of Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, during peak hour, which is every hour there. Just think of it flowing like a river, and its much easier to ride in

    Its after my holiday there that sparked me into getting my licence here.


  2. At least its all bikes not cagers!
  3. Safety in numbers right?! :shock:
  4. the few times I took a car taxi, it was much slower than the bikes.

    The cars and bikes have separate lanes over there, separated by a traffic island.

    Sounds safer but although there are road rules, nobody takes any notice of them.

    But speeds are down, bike power is down, and most people give way as long as you are alert and stay on your line, don't do anything suddenly


  5. The first thing that came into my head was an image of a big, rip-snorting Hayabusa clearing a massive path of debri as it cut a big swath through the middle of all those scooters, lol.

    Who's your daddy!
