A word of advice.
When someone asks you if you want to ride in the car or on the back of a motorcycle, you might want to take the car.
But if you want to spend 20 minutes squeezing between trucks and buses and autorickshaws, trying not to crap your pants, worrying about how yr pbly participating in a "dangerous activity" which would forfeit your health insurance, and recalling the story a friend told you about how much blood was on the road when a motorcyclist wearing shorts hit the ground... then the choice is clear!
Note: Vinit assured me he was driving much more safely than he usually does. "When i'm alone, i'm a bit dangerous."
