Delhi roads are covered with motorcycles/scooters (called two-wheelers by the Indians.) For some reason, I'm fascinated by this method of getting around town. Maybe because I grew up riding motorcycles, and yet would NEVER dare get on one and ride through the insane traffic here. Honestly, I don't know how people get up the nerve.

I've come to the conclusion that there is a helmet law here, but it's pretty open to interpretation judging on the types of helmet's I've seen. It appears that turbans count as helmets if your are a Sikh. We've seen a couple of cricket helmets with full face guards, and hundred's of construction hard hats as helmets. I guess anything is better than nothing.

Every time I see one of these stylish riders I start start humming one of my favorite childhood songs:

Pin It

I wonder if you and I are the only ones in the whole world who can sing this song word for word. :) (Or maybe it's just me, hehe.)

Wasn't this from the Not as Cool Grease?
