Motorbike from Hanoi to sapa

Is it possibly to bike from Hanoi to sapa? I see on google maps it would take 9hrs!! This would be quite a long journey for one day. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

As the traffic in Vietnam is with no rule, it is best to take train or bus unless you have experience with driving in here long time.

Figure 50 km/h average, then do the math. The bike isn't allowed on the expressway.

Not much to see on the Lao Cai Express Way either. Suggest you rent the bike in Sapa and start your adventure from there.

Safe travels :)
