The weather outside might be frightful, but the winter months in Rajasthan are certainly delightful. Avoiding the oppressive summer heat is the best way to enjoy the dramatic fortresses and colourful cities dotted around the north of the country, and exploring on two wheels allows a connection with India that is just not possible in any other way.
