Here’s a long term owners review of my 2018 Honda Shadow 150. This motorcycle is a 150cc cruiser style bike made by Honda. The review is based on my year long ownership of this motorbike. It’s also in English which seemed rare to find when I was looking myself.

A ride out to the far West of from Hoi An in Quang Nam, Vietnam, on my Honda XR150. We did a big loop of around 230km mainly on bigger A-roads and mountain passes with great views of Vietnam’s countryside.

A group ride out South from Hoi An in Quang Nam, Vietnam, on my Honda XR150. We did a big loop stopping off at 4 different lakes. It was a nice mix of roads from some tiny off road tracks to larger A-roads and as usual lots of great views of Vietnam’s countryside.

A very quick how-to video showing the procedure to reset the “oil change” indicator light on the display of a Yamaha NVX 155. This was done on my current generation (gen 2) 2021 Yamaha NVX155 scooter with the digital dashboard and smartkey ignition and remote keyfob.

As you’ll see in the video the procedure is as follows:

1. Switch on the ignition.
2. Use the menu button to scroll to the oil tripmeter.
3. Press and hold the menu button until the mileage starts flashing.
4. Release the menu button.
5. …


A ride out leaving Hoi An to find a secret war museum we’d been told about in Duy Son. Some interesting roads up there and some decent climbs through roads that had previously been closed due to landslides. The roads were passable again and as well as a couple of temples we found the unmanned war museum too. Then a leisurely ride back to Hoi An via Tam Ky, the beach at Tam Thanh and the coast road North.

A very quick how-to video showing the procedure to reset the “oil change” indicator light on the display of a Honda Air Blade. This was done on our current generation 2021 Honda Airblade 125 scooter with the digital dashboard and smartkey ignition and remote keyfob.

As you’ll see in the video the procedure is as follows:

1. Activate the scooter using the smartkey (don’t turn on the ignition though).
2. Press and hold the right hand “set” button on the dashboard for at least 3 seconds.
3. Keep holding the “set” button down and then switch on the ignition.


A ride out around from Hoi An to Nam O Beach near Danang in Vietnam. We headed North from Hoi An and then went West inland to a lake (Ho Dong Xanh — Dong Nghe) and looping round to Nam O Beach for lunch. Then it was a route through central Danang and back down the coast road (passing Marble Mountains) to Hoi An.

A ride out around from Hoi An to Phu Ninh Lake near Tam Ky in Vietnam. We took a fairly direct route up to Tam Ky and then explored the lake and some of the roads that run alongside it. Coming back we took a longer random route through villages and fields thanks to the fab Calimoto App.

You can see the exact route we took here https://www.relive.cc/view/vXOdKroKR4v
