Is riding in India dangerous?

Is riding in India dangerous?

Riding motorcycles anywhere is dangerous. Riding motorcycles that have brakes made of wood down mountain roads that haven’t been resurfaced in 10 years while dodging an oncoming truck around a blind corner with no guard rails in the fog is possibly the most dangerous thing you can do….but hey…that’s part of the fun right!

We won’t be in the high density, big cities where people seem to be on a mission to get wherever they’re going as fast as humanly possible without any regard for their own life let alone anyone else’s.  Personally I find the drivers in the Himalayas are some of the best and most courteous drivers and riders I have come across anywhere in the world.

If any rider on tour rides in a manner we suspect will endanger themselves, or others, or indeed displays antisocial behaviour, they will receive one warning.  If they continue to display a threat to the safety or enjoyment of others on the tour, they will be excluded from the remainder of the trip with no refund given.
