Our trip began in Hanoi, where we spent a few days sorting out our motorcycles and skating around the city with Timmy and Harry.

On our first day of riding, we started late in the afternoon and it took us 2 hours to ride out of the city. We then spent the next 4 hours on a freeway only to find out we drove in a circle and stayed in a hotel back in Hanoi. Wasn’t the best of starts, and to add to that, it started to rain and continued to rain for the next 6 days non-stop.

Scenes like this were all too common on the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which we took for the first 3 days before getting onto the A-1 Highway.

From Hanoi to HCMC is about 2000km. Not sure where we were at this stage of the trip but it was the first day of no-rain so probably around DongHoi.

Probably the best spot we saw in Vietnam but couldn’t skate due to it being wet and rainy.

Oink, oink.

Found an epic spot next to the highway. The whole town basically came out and watched us skate.

One day of rest before heading off to HCMC.

Your ass starts to hurt about an hour into riding. Then you realize you’re on that bike for the next 6 hours. Doesn’t get any better.

About 4 hours away from HCMC and it starts POURING. Once again… all our shit gets soaked. We waited it out for about an hour before starting our ride into the city and it thunderstormed on us about 4 more times before we made it to HCMC. We got dry, got soaked, got dry again, then got soaked as we rolled into town.

Finally made it the 2000km to HCMC and we celebrated with icecream sandwiches!
