Two Brothers Motorbike from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City: Part Six The Last Push
Hours outside of Saigon after Five days of driving from Hanoi to Saigon.
We ended the flight in Qui Nhon leaving each other. My Brother jumped on the crippled motorbike and headed south. I stayed a few minutes as the crowd slowly dissipated after the days of our lives show we had just produced came to a halt. We ended up fixing the bike the next day and made our final push towards Ho Chi Minh City.
With most of day four spent at the Mechanic shop in Qui Nhon we made a short hop to the city of Na Trang to spend the night. Day Five would be the last day and we knew it would be a longest day of riding.
320 Kilometers, I will never forget that amount of distance. The distance from Na Trang to Ho Chi Minh City. We woke up that day on a mission, maybe a personal mission or a promise we made to each other that we could do this. It would take a miracle for us to do so. We hadn't had a day without a bike having a technical problem yet and would have to travel the distance averaging a speed that we hadn't done yet either. But for what ever reason that day the last day of the ride there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
We rode out of Na Trang and only stopped when we needed. Gas up, Red Bull, WC, Each PHO, DRIVE.... Repeat Repeat Repeat... The Kilometers clicked down and down. Until this shot the last on my Camera. Ho Chi Minh City. We had driven over 1800 Kilometers on small engine bikes in 5 days. Survived all that Vietnam could throw at us and came out the other side.
