India is very well connected by trains (in fact one of the best train networks in the world), state transport buses and rickshaws. But when it was time to decide how I would be travelling the country, I wanted something that would give me the freedom to take any road I want whenever I wanted.
A two wheeler was an obvious choice but the idea of travelling with luggage didn’t appeal to me. Then there is the risk factor that comes with a bike along with all the coolness and adventure. After looking into various four wheeler options I decided that I wanted a Bolero. A 3 day trip in a friends Bolero to Manipal in March 2013 confirmed my choice.
