Many travel insurance policies only cover up to 200cc motorbikes.
Why up to 200cc?
Because its a restriction that a number of travel insurance policies impose.
Some insurers do not require you to have a motorcycle license if riding a low capacity engine and will cover you for a bike 50cc - 125cc. Others have maximum engine size limits which you're only insured to ride - irrespective of what your license says
And some cover you for whatever engine size you ride as long as you're licenced to do so in Australia.

That list on that link shows most have “no limit” which is surprising.
Holiday in Thailand let’s get a Harley!

Also Caminco Insurance offer 3rd party insurance at a good price.
Small motorbike l think under $20 a year.
What is 3rd party insurance please?
http://www.businessdictionary.com/defin ... rance.html
3rd party insurance for one year with Caminco in SHV was $23. You and your moto are not covered, but if some kid drives into you and hurts themselves or worse, then the insurance should cover their bills, and you can wave the insurance paper at the cops etc. if you have an accident to calm everyone down if necessary.

That's the theory anyway, but haven't had to try it out yet. Seemed stupid not to have it at the price. Has anyone claimed on it ?

No because no one bothers to get a licence as “HE stated no one needs a licence under 125cc” etc etc.

3rd party insurance covers your damage to a third party, up to the agreed coverage.

If you hit something or someone, you're liability is covered by the insurance policy.

I've never claimed here, but it's dirt cheap for both cars and motos. A dashcam will help ensure a valid claim is accepted if you're following Khmer law and not common sense.

I got a car license for one year by providing my Australian car license and from what I've been told by my local police it covers big bikes also?

If it’s a “B” it covers cars and moto under 125cc. That’s it.

I was told a car license covers bikes over 125 by people at motor registry and senior police, if this is correct what you say then once again what one person in authority say is not necessary correct over here in Cambodia

Unless things have changed recently, for my 250cc I needed to get a separate 'A2' license. So, it's a 'B' license for cars and motos 125cc and under (I think they did away with license requirements for 125cc and under motos but that may have just been for locals).

Most of us big bike riders have known this for years...we've also known that most coppers had no knowledge of it, but you better believe your insurance will know/find out about it.

I just tested for and obtained both the A (they no longer have A1 and A2) and B 10-year licenses last month.
