What with all those damn distracted cagers weaving in and out of traffic, not checking their mirrors, occasionally drifting from their lane into yours, turning left in front of you, the list goes on.
Wanna go for a ride here?
I'm currently in Mumbai on a biz trip. That picture was the view from one of my hotel rooms. It's actually a 3 lane road, but the painted lines are only a suggestion and not a strong one at that.
Most roads have a raised cement divider separating the opposing traffic. Those that don't, well in the words of my client when describing traffic here, "might makes right", use all the road if you can get away with it.
Crazily enough, theres a huge amount of bikes on the road here. I've seen one actual sport bike, but the rest are 100 - 150cc type bikes. Nimble and light. A heavier bike would be damn crazy to ride here.
seem to be the two most popular bikes on the road here.
Would I go for a ride here? Hell no!
But if I had the chance to take one of those little bikes out for a rip, I *may* have to give it some serious thought, but only on a quiet side street(do these exist here?)
Oh yeah, helmets are definitely optional.
