Riding or driving a motorcycle in India really is an adventure. Their crazy driving patterns and unique scenes make it a trip worth remembering.
Strangely, my husband and I may have fallen in love riding a motorcycle together during the trip in India when we met in 2008. I remember, dangerously, standing up on the motorcycle while hubby drove and opening my arms like the famous scene in Titanic. Love makes you do wild things am I right? (I think hubby was impressed too, at my sense of adventure.)
These photos are not from that time but hubby and I drove a motorcycle together during several other trips to India. The last time was almost a year ago.
I like the scenes that you encounter when you drive a motorcycle (or any other vehicle) in rural India.
Like these women carrying goods to their homes.
And these school children in uniform.
Motorcycles and scooters are very common ride in India.
Families riding on a motorcycle are a regular sight. Indian people can manage to ride with anything they set their minds to, from big families to giant metal poles.
Stopping at the gas station often is very common too. Indians, at least in rural India, never fill their tanks. When we asked to have ours filled they couldn’t understand us at first because nobody does that. People pay a few rupees at a time.
Above is the fire extinguishing “tools” at the gas station. Buckets of rubble.
Have you ever ridden on a motorcycle in a foreign country?
