I'll take care of it and use it for sport-touring events or credit-card touring at some point and will leave the heavier tours to my current in-progress build which should be ready by May. I will post more updates in the coming months on both bikes with pictures as some of you have requested.

As others have said, this thread can also serve to other bikes or possessions others have and are experiencing as well as the feeling is universal. I hope this thread continues in some way for others to share their own experiences and promote enjoyment instead of behaviors like I experienced.

We need to clone you sir, you are a credit to your generation. The country (and the bike industry) needs 10-15 million more people just like you. Do you have many like-minded friends?

I was going to jokingly suggest that there's a mini bike museum / man cave in Saigon that probably would accept your pristine Miyata 1000 as a donation,

A small vintage cycling mancave in Saigon - Vietnam

But since you wisely decided to ride and enjoy the Miyayta instead, there's no need for that kind of silliness.
