We only recommend this way for tourists who have been living here long enough to know exactly where are they heading to and can "really" know how to ride motorbike. As Hai Van Pass is a dangerous route with many tough twists and sloping road, so be prepared in scenario that your bikes are broken and no-one to ask for help but yourselves.
