Some might have worried about the stifling desert heat, above 100 degrees every day. Others might have worried about India’s well-publicized problems with violence against women. My worries were more practical and mostly about traffic. Everything you have heard about India’s traffic is true. Motorcycles, rickshaws, bicycles, pedestrians, cargo trucks, and more all fight for the same real estate at the same time. And honking. So much honking! Such synchronized chaos is an impromptu riding school with advanced coursework in lane-splitting, peripheral acuity, emergency braking, and situational awareness. Survive and you will leave an expert at adapting to any riding situation.
