T'were me I'd buy, new from a dealer, worth it, for peace of mind. 

Unless you can find someone, who has just bought a new one and can't keep up the payments, in which case it is common, for the new owner to take over the payments. But then there's a lot of trust in this arrangement, so you'd have to know them well.

Second hand, per se, well, I'd venture the opinion that most second hand moto have been run into the ground several times over, then polished for sale.

How ever there are some dealers around town (Vientiane) who offer non-new bikes for sale, including Harleys and Triumphs for the well heeled expat/tourist/naive.

It's been 6 years since I was there, so there're prolly a lot of Chinese offerings at economic prices.

For reference I paid nearly 2,000 USD, for a new Suzuki 125,  helmet and smiles in 2011, blue.

Caveat emptor
