OK, this is not *exactly* about British bikes.

It's about British blokes (Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond & James May) buying and riding bikes in a totally unfamiliar setting.

I'll bet some of you have already seen the BBC Top Gear show about the lad's "adventure tour" of Viet Nam on two wheels.

If not, this is really, really worth watching.

(due to the Youtube limit of 10 minutes per video, the actual show is broken up into 8 parts).

In my village here in AL is a Chevron station owned by a Vietnamese "boat person"....he still has family there & goes back to visit every few years....his brother owns a tourism business in "Saigon" & has said he'll personlly be my tour guide for whatever part of the country I want to visit for as long as I want to visit.

That Top Gear episode is a good one.

I have an abiding love for small displacement machines...and I loved that episode. Just once, I'd like the machines to still run at the end, though.
