That Yankee would never write the same if he were riding in India.
In India, its hard to choose really, as both, driving and riding on our highways is not always a pleasure, what with diesel fumes, dust and grime, blinding headlights and the grim reaper sitting on your shoulder during overtaking. Unfortunatly I have not gone for any really long rides in India yet, so will comment after a long trip I plan on doing after the monsoons.

Long trips - bike vs Car
I have a karizma, bought specifically for long rides, have done 4 or 5 Bangalore Mysore trips, a trip to Mumbai/Bombay, and a trip to Belgaum and back.
It's one of the better bikes in the country for fast, long rides and I'm happy with the choice. However, in my heart of hearts, I sometimes long for the comforts of a back rest in a car, the comfort of the interiors during winter, and when my screwed up visor (why cant they make better visors?) only shows me light (could be a truck on high beam or could be light from the nether world).
But then I'm on my bike, at about 85 Kmph, on a great road, fields to the left, a canal to the right, helmet in place, sun obscured by clouds, wind buffetting my chest, birds in the sky, and all's fine with the world!
