Day 3 of no riding. No visible withdrawal symptoms yet, but I can feel it creeping just under my skin. The constant rumbles of single- and parallel-twin- cylinder engines all around me is certainly not making this ordeal any easier. God forbid, I might even cave and hire a bike. Why would I not want to do so? Because this place I'm in is called Jakarta. Where lane splitting tuktuks are a common occurrence. Where indicators, hazard lights and lane markings serve no purpose other than as decoratives to be used and interpreted as liberally as new age art. Where the practice of head-checks while driving is frowned upon, and even bikes and pedestrians SMIDSY one another. tldr: Riding is pretty much a death wish here, and I'm chickening out. So, short of hiring a bike (read: clapped out <=125cc scooter), how would you deal with your riding withdrawals while on a trip overseas?
