Motorcycle hire in Cambodia

edited July 2012 in Far East Asia
I'm going on holiday to Cambodia in a few months, and was planning to travel around a bit on my own. I've heard that you can't hire a motorcycle in Cambodia for some reason... is this true? Or is there a way around it? Maybe a scooter hire? Any help would be awesome, thanks.

    You can still rent motorcycles in Phnom Penh, but in Siem Reap authorities have banned tourists from hiring them because the accident rate has been super high. The roads are in a bad condition and motorcycles are just not a great option. I'm not sure if the same applies to scooters... but I wouldn't dare use a scooter on those roads! I do know that you have to have a helmut if you travel by motorcycle - you can be fined otherwise.
