I have done some research (mostly reading and re-reading the same 2-3 year old posts) about buying a motor-bike in Vientiane and it looked doable two years ago. Is it still doable? I'll be arriving around May 25th, and I'm hoping to pick up a 125cc bike within a three to four day timeframe and take it into Thailand. I'm hoping to spend not more than 400USD. IS this feasible? Would it make more sense to cross the border and buy one in Chiang Rai, for instance?
Any advice, ideas...???
