Unlike cars, renting a motorbike long term in Saigon is common practice. Renting gives you the advantage of not having to maintain the bike beyond basics like oil changes and replacing flat tires. Got a funny rattle in the exhaust? Let the owner service it. Brakes not as good as they used to be? Not your problem.
In addition, renting also frees you up from the paperwork involved in buying a bike, which can be more complicated it you're an expat. This process is not easy to navigate without a residence card and other proof of identification. Even for locals and long term expats this process can be difficult to navigate successfully.
