the bike rent market is almost inexistent in lao. there s much more offer in cambodia, prices are cheap (around 10-15 usd for a honda xr250 type, sometimes even less + you can bargain if you rent for 1-2 weeks).
try my friend, he's used to renting to foreigners, you can also get insurance, equipment, guide, etc ... with him, some people from the Hubb have gone with him) : http://www.phnompenhbike.com/

most bike rental dealers are in phnom penh, siem reap (near angkor wat).

good luck, happy trails

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
