Whilst the Ambassador is the classic Indian 4 wheeled vehicle, there is no doubt that the Royal Enfield is the iconic 2 wheeled motorbike across the country.

Watching these machines burn past me on the highway visions filled my head of riding the Bullet 350 and how radical I would look.

Although I hadn’t ridden a bike since I was a little tacker I was determined to experience this craze that India has frothed on for 50 years, and despite the chaos of Chennai I hit the streets for a few hundred metres before the salesman straddling me caught onto the fact I had no idea what I was doing.

A few laughs and a whole lotta heartbeats later I reminisced about my stupidity of learning to ride a motorbike in India.
