Had to be a Royal Enfield, we were in India after all. It was bloody good, cheap beer, cheap food, cheap-ish accomodation (even though I have no doubt we were paying tourist rates wherever we went). I intend to go back for longer and venture further afield. The people are friendly and helpful, you just have to avoid North Goa as it's party central, more expensive and has a huge Russian contingent. I much preferred the south, the further south you go the more rural and less false it becomes.

I can recommend Varca, it's quite rural but you don't get the crowds. The beach must be at least a couple of miles long, and there was only a handful of people near us. One of my Indian colleagues reckons the next province down from Goa is very similar to how Goa was 20 years ago, unspoilt and hardly any tourists.
