To be honest, whilst we passed dozens of Policemen, we weren't even looked at - always waved on. I think the Police are only interested in locals smuggling stuff!
The big question you have to answer, is what would you do if you hit and maybe killed someone? Easier not to on a bike and when not riding at night, with quite a bit of off road, but if you intend driving through towns etc, you may just want to bite the bullet and do the 'sensible' thing.
Oh, and for heavens sake take the number of the British Embassy with you - just in case!
