Please note that there is no law (as of yet) in Indonesia prohibiting tourists from renting bikes. Bikago is a fully licensed motorbike rental company since 2014 and we have not received any notice to cease our operations.
That said, the police is very hands on at the moment. The reason is that culprits are renting bikes in Bali not respecting local laws and customs. Also, there are un-licensed (foreign owned) motorbike rental companies not following the incorporation and business laws in Bali, Indonesia.
To make sure you stay "out of trouble" please obey the simple rules below:
1. You (and your passenger) ALWAYS wear a helmet.
2. Make sure you have an International Driving Permit.
3. Do not ride around Bali shirtless.
4. Do NOT drink and drive.
By simply obeying to those 4 rules there is absolutely nothing to worry about.
More information about the rules and the applicable traffic fines can be found here.
In addition, you can contact us on Whatsapp around the clock if you face any problems with the police. We have an outstanding relationship with them and we are able to provide assistance if required.
