A POPULAR holiday hotspot is cracking down on law-breaking tourists this summer.
Brits who visit Bali often opt for motorbikes or mopeds to get around the island.
However, a spate of holidaymakers breaking the rules when riding them has led to the ban of renting and riding them.
Governor Wayan Koster said: "[Tourists] are disorderly and they misbehave.
"You [should] not roam about the island using motorbikes, without wearing shirts or clothes, no helmet, and even without a licence."
More than 170 tourists broke the rules from late February to early March, according to local police reports.

Mr Koster added: "Borrowing or renting motorbikes is no longer allowed. This will be implemented starting in 2023.
“The tourists will have to travel by using cars from travel agents.
"They are not allowed to use motorbikes or any vehicles that are not from a travel agent."
