The modified 125cc Minsk

Our specially modified 125cc four-stroke Belarusian motorbikes called 'Minsks' are the perfect bike for our rides; light, easy to manoeuvre, robust and with more than enough power to get you up any track, especially now that the mechanics have modified them with strong 4-stroke engines. Both Charlie Boorman and Richard Hammond from BBC Top Gear had a ball riding the Minsks when touring with Explore Indochina.

Its on our off-road options that the Minsk come into their own on; as they are perfect for the small single tracks far up in the mountains where Europeans no one has been before.

Open-top Jeeps

Recently restored the open-top jeeps are the perfect way to see the countryside. To quote Explore Indochina "With the roof off and the windscreen down you'll feel like a rock star as you return the waves from friendly villagers and excited children, with the wind in your hair and bugs in your teeth!".
Jeeps are normally driven by our experienced drivers and guides but we can arrange self-drive trips by request.

The vintage 650cc Ural

The company we represent - Explore Indochina is the largest motorbike tour operator in Viet Nam with forty-nine 650cc Ural's some with sidecars. The bikes are ex-military, 30 odd years old and offer a classic bike ride without the concerns about reliability. Modifications have been made by the specialist mechanics to improve the comfort, safety and their performance. The bikes suit the experienced New Zealand or Australian rider with the feeling of a classic BMW and are perfect for the riding conditions we experience.

The Ural sidecars are only an option for experienced side car riders ONLY although we offer a sidecar ride through Hanoi sightseeing which is a 'blast'!
We are excited to be able to offer tours (escorted or unescorted by us) - in conjunction with Explore Indochina at a great rate. We also include some 'custom add-ons’ to round out your Indochina experience.
