    Hey,
    I have done alot of research online regarding dirtbike hire in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. There is alot of info out there - good and bad, i was wondering if any experienced riders/travellers could recomend some no bullshit, well maintained and serviced, friendly dirtbike hire shops.... We are looking to hire the bikes(honda baja 250's or similar) for +- 3 weeks,roughly about from the 10th of december to the 29th. We are looking to see as much of cambodia as possible, whilst still enjoying the scenery and not rushing. I have bought my own helmet and boots here in Australia. Would the more experienced riders advise buying the whole package - armour etc... Ive heard it can get extermemly hot and uncomfortable. I was going to just go in shorts and shirt with decent boots and helmet from Oz... is this foolish?

    Any advice would be sincerely appreciated :eek:

    cheers
    Chris

    Hi David,
    I hired an XR250 from "The Bike Shop" in Phnom Penh for a week in January 2014. I and was very happy with the bike it was well maintained and had heaps of power, I requested a rear tyre with more rubber and they obliged no problem, $US30 per day, expensive but I was riding on my own and the last thing I need is for the bike to fail.
    The address for those who want it is 31 Street 302, Phnom Penh. N11 33 08.6 E104 55 18.1Cheers
