I don't think I have mentioned yet the degree to which India is a country of motorcycles. I think I am more aware of this phenomenon due to the fact that I became a motorcycle owner again last summer. I would say that 75-80% of the vehicles here are motorcycles.
My 650 bike is a giant compared to all the 110 cc bikes that families of 3-4 ride here, usually with no helmets or eye protection!
Names I have noticed include "Honda Hero," "Mahesh TV", Suzukis, Kawaski, Splendor, among others. No Harleys here! It's just kind of interesting to imagine myself on my bike here. They would get out of my way!
