Steamy southern culture/cuisine/wildlife, plus scenic, twisty mountain rides.
Easy going for most of the way. Straighter rides near the coast; the best of the riding is in the Western Ghat mountains, where some mega-twisty days await your attention. Potholes are possible and traffic can be manic in the few built-up areas.
Tarmac: 100%; dirt 0%.
Tour designed with pillions and couples in mind. Mainly smooth roads; shortish days and romantic destinations.
