Girls and Bikes are not something that go well together … unless we are talking about the back seat. Yes of course, there are exceptions and I have seen female bikers around but I am not from the exception category. I have been always on the backseat of the 2-wheeler troubling the one on the front seat with my back seat driving and instant feedback of their driving skills and the conditions of the road.
While I sit comfortably on the back seat, I am constantly bickering about the uncomfortable drive on the 2-wheels and my preference for the comfort of the air conditioned 4-wheeler!! I keep telling my brother and more recently my husband on how to drive and how bad drivers they are when they drive over speed breakers and pot holes.
I clutch onto their shirts and shoulders with dear life as the 2-wheels jump into and over the geological disturbances of the Mumbai roads. In fact, my hold on their shoulders tightens even in the anticipation of an upcoming pothole or sped breakers.
My husband often tells me that he feels the geology of Mumbai roads on his shoulders BEFORE he sees the actual pothole/speed-breaker. My husband is a 2-wheeler fan and although we have a car, he hasn't taken me out in his car even once.
Can you imagine that? Not even once has he driven me around in his car.
So that's about it … My biking and back seat driving experience.
