WARNING: trouble with motorcycle hire

Hey there,

I rented two motorcycles today in Vang Vieng at a place on the main street, 100 meters from Q-bar in direction to the ATM's, same side of the street, next to a massagebar. The place has no actual name. Both motorcycles broke down and we had trouble finding transport to the village. When returning the motorcycles to the shop, the owner wanted us to pay for 'damage'. After refusing this he threatened me (' I will kill you') and tried to set me on fire. Please do not rent a motorcycle here!!!!

Regards,

Rick
