Saigon Ride 3 - Sunday ride from District 7 to District 1

Expat Life Jan 6, 2021

Sunday ride from my gym in District 7 back to District 1. Sundays are always a great time to ride a motorcycle in the morning. The traffic is always light making riding a bit more enjoyable. Very few bottlenecks makes for a joyous ride.

As you can see, whenever possible I try to stay  in the right lane. Unfortunately, with the flow of traffic, I find myself in the left lane which are only for cars. You will see me use my left turn single on occasions. This is the legal way to be in the left lane but I really should be passing a slower motorbike when I do this. There will be more traffic camera enforcements in the near future so you will see the traffic improving overall similar to many major cities in China. Well, we hope.

My next videos will be focused on the other route to / from District 7. I plan a long ride in about two weeks. The video is still shot in 2.7K at 30 FPS Superview.

My Macbook Pro is showing its age so I hope to upgrade to a Mac Mini M1 at the end of the month with a possible GoPro upgrade as well.
