vintage bikes, classic rides

Welcome to Vietnam's oldest and most experienced motorbike tour operator that has been the first choice of TV shows, the press and thousands of satisfied riders for the last 20 years. Click here to see Charley Boorman ride with us in 2013 and rave about our bikes!

Richard Hammond from BBC Top Gear and Charley Boorman from the TV series 'The Long Way Round' chose our 125cc Belarusian Minsk motorcycles while Masterchef Gordon Ramsay preferred the raw power of our vintage 650cc Russian Ural motorbike as did Charley Boorman (again!) when he returned in 2013 for a show called 'Freedom Riders Asia'.

We guided the Top Gear Vietnam Special, carrying the cameramen on our Ural motorcycles, and our mechanics designed and built the three amphibious motorbikes that carried the three presenters out into Ha Long Bay.

In Richard Hammonds words – “I bought this. It’s a Minsk. Russian, 125cc and well, it’s basically the AK47 of  bikes. Rugged, simple, easy to repair. It is built specifically to be used in countries where there are no roads. It will be, for whatever they throw at us, perfect.”

We also organise the largest annual charity rally in Vietnam, Rally Indochina, which has raised almost a quarter of a million dollars for the Blue Dragon Children's Foundation, an organisation that works with underprivileged children in Vietnam.

Just watch this video shot with a drone and you will be hooked!
