He put the word out and his cousin here had this purple ride available. It's a Honda Shine 125cc with 4 gears (neutral at the bottom, 0-1-2-3-4
). We took a bus to the town of Sriperumbudur, near my Dad's village, picked up the Shine from Ramachandra Uncle and rode back 30 kms into the city, at night, in rush hour traffic. First ride with my Dad as pillion and no problems. Traffic is crazy but you just have to go with the flow of chaos; something like this:
Oh and I got my Indian Learner's Permit today
I always get a kick out of those traffic videos.. I lol'd as it almost seems like it has an invisible traffic light at the intersection.
It reminds me of the chinese moped craziness I have watched.
