Myself and 5 friends decided that we wwanted to travel from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh on motor bikes. 3 of us discovered flamingo and bought our bikes from there. The guys were honest avoit the state of all the bikes, let us know what repairs we would nee, all free of charge and even gave us spare parts to go with. Planned a route for us and helped us out with luggage transfer and helmets.
Our other 2 friends decided they wanted different bikes and bought from a smaller private dealer and got ripped off completely. Both bikes broke down seriously and had to be left. One within 50 k of leaving and the other under half way. All bikes from flamingo have been faultless.

Good tour, off the main (tourist) road to see the real vietnam. Good food, nice homestay (clean and good bed).
Beautiful scenery, good offroading. Good bikes, reliable.
Very good English speaking tourguide (Minh), ask for him.

Me and my partner wanted to do something different during our time in vietnam, and since we love riding motorbikes, it was an easy choise.
We rented two honda 250cc at Flamingo and also wanted to rent safety cloathing. When they couldn't find anything in my size (i'm a size s girl) they actuallt bought a new jacket so i could use that one.
They helped us whith planning a 6 day trip, and he told us all the good roads and places to stay. Since we didn't have time to ride the bikes to sapa they helped us with booking the night train for us and the bikes, and also droped the bikes on the train for us.
Whenever we had a problem we could call them and they could allways help, even if it was just to translate something for us.
I highly recomend flamingo to anyone, they are awesome in every way.

I fell compelled to recommend Flamingo to anyone who's looking to buy motorbikes in Vietnam for touring trips. The typical problem people find is that the bargain bikes are in bad condition. Our group used Flamingo in Hanoi and bought a Minsk motorbike from them as well as servicing other bikes with their mechanics before we left. Their level of work was excellent and moderately priced, which is reassuring instead of quick/cheap fixes.

The best part of our experience was when we were 3000km into our trip and having some mechanical difficulties in Laos. The mechanics in Laos didn't understand our bikes and communication was terrible. The owner Mr Hung was amazing - I called him and with simple explanation of the bike's symptoms he narrowed the problems down to a few things and then talked to the Vietnamese speaking mechanic. Bish bosh bash we had bikes working well again. In summary you can save maybe $50 by trying to buy from another backpacker, but will lose money with repairs needed before you leave and on the road. You also avoid frustrating communication problems further down the road by having Mr Hung on call as support.
