Riding Around!

So I wanted to do something different this weekend. Didnt feel like traveling, didnt feel like going to the shalaihaat, and i wanted to avoid traffic and crowds! So I just really limited my options at that point! I wanted to relax and weather was soooo damn good! But my answer came a couple of days before the weekend! My bike finally arrived. It was supposed to arrive end of december but there were delays from this and that, and then customs took their time. But I got the bike at last (even though it was a month and a half late!). I’ve been riding for a few years and i love it! But I learned to ride in California, so its a biiittt different here! hehehe..

It was friday morning the weather was perfect, it was 16 C outside. I put my gear on. (I always wear gear). Helmet, Gloves, Jacket, and Bike boots. I wear jeans which do the job! So I have sufficient protection to go on this little adventure of mine. I also have my cell phone in my pocket, and my wallet. I also have a nice selection of music in my iRiver mp3 player. And yes i can ride and listen to music at the same time! Its the same concept as driving and listening to music, but you have to make sure your senses are set to high! Gotta keep my eye out for women driving SUVs and people oblivious to other people on the road (especially bikes)! hehehehe

And for those of you wondering at this point, yes I have a motorcycle license!! I went through the hoops to get the license, but thats another experience to write about at a different time! So I started off riding in Shuwiekh al-Sena3eyah, and I took the first ring road to the second ring road until the gulf street, then i went left to souq sharq.. but I kept going past it til the end, and thats where I took some photos!

And then I went back down the gulf road going back in the other direction! Did I mention friday morning there was little to no cars on the road, which made the ride fantastic and extremely enjoyable!! Didnt have to worry about bad drivers! I just had to worry about this bike’s manners! hehehe So at this point in time im riding for about 30 mins going between 80 to 100 kph.. taking it easy and enjoying the breeze. Then I stopped at the scientific center and took some more photos! Lots of kids playing around with their families on these four wheel bikes! It was cool! I had to be nice and drive slow since I wanted to park on the side walk! hehehe.. at first some parents were giving me dirty looks, but the kids liked the bike so they loosened up a bit, and were being nice! hehehe

From there I went to get a haircut, and a cold bottle of water! And so I went and got a shave and cut! I like it simple and easy to maintain! lol From there I went to Marina Mall for quick Frapachino before going back to park my bike next to allllll the other Harleys! They always travel in groups!! I think thats the best idea, and the safest to travel in groups! Because people are more aware of groups! But I dont have group, and im still gonna ride!!! hehehe.. anywayz got my frapachino and went back to my bike.. cooled off a bit, then I went back home around 2pm.. had lunch and felt good! Cuz I still had  a lot left to the day!

  6. COOOOOOOL! mshalla! I wish I am a man with a harllllly fat boy :D by the way, I know I am very late to read this… but that building is Kuwait Petrolium Company KPC, the big mother of all other petrol companies in Kuwait… not Company… somthing else I cant remember… it is Mua’assassa!

  7. Sum1: Its Kuwait Petroleum Corporation! hehehe! yeah its the big Kahuma! Why don’t you get a bike then? I think you would enjoy it, if you want help getting it, I can point you in the right direction, be it a Harley or any other bike.

  8. “law yat 3allay? Chan shftny awayeelll b shar3 il 5laij after 9allat il fyer! yaaaaaaaaaaay 7ilm 7yaty !” My parents will NVR allow me! am a girl… “5a66r etmooten!” I love bikz .. too much as romyo lovez jolyt

    Oh Sum1!!

    I was there in your shoes for over 15 years!! I know how you feel! I really do!

    I used to run out of home and be on bikes till the morning comes out! And go back home and get away with it or get caught and punished!! But I’ll never forget those days!

    I don’t advice you to do it because for me I ended up with: broken leg (left), 13 stitches cut on my other leg (right), skin off my both arms, and neck problems for the rest of my life! And guess what? Strangely my father found out about it!!

    Well I’m A Christian, and my mum is European, so that makes it easier for me! Now my husband is buying me a bike to use for a while and then I’ll be buying my own!!!

    So waiting for the right time and the right way to do it is the best advice I’ll give you! Hope you’ll get that some day!

  10. Ouch! am sry to hear that… but u still want a bike? wow ! :D if u want th truth… I am really afraidddddd of such things! I cant stand a car driving 140 km/hr … I mean I drive it… I reallllllly get afraid of such things… I am strong in every thing but such stufff! NOO! thos r for meeen! Men only..the strongest ppl !

    What u did is TOO much :s If I TRY to do it… I will be chatting with u from the jail :P Here in Kuwait it is not that easy to do such thing! :D espcialy with a lovely EXTRA caring parents :D

    All what I want to do… is to drive very fasssssssssssst but huh! FIRST I want somthing that gurntee for me that I wont diy! ThEn I will be the first one who drivez a bike… I know nothing can gurnteeeeee… so I wont drive! but i love it.. wooooooow yumy yummmmy! U know that Kuwait is the forth most dangrous place for driving? A fnrd told me now it is the 2nd (my info from two years ago, I did not update it yet)

    I want my man to drive, and I will be huging him from his back! yaay cool ha? lol.

  11. Sum1: I know what you mean, that is why I go out in the early wee mornings! hehehe! Riding is about knowing the danger and riding close to the line, its something else and you control yourself and go nuts but you have to do it at a responsible level. You can enjoy bikes in Kuwait, its all about the timing, but I can understand what you mean about the parents.

    Nora: See in your situation you went on your own without the proper guidance for biking, I did enjoy myself wildly in the beginning but I learned in the US! And they teach you about gear and wearing full gear really saves you ALOT of pain as you know now! U learned and your a very experienced rider at this point that is why I love my helmets! And when you do ride in Kuwait let me know! hehehe

    I wasn’t the driver!!! It was a friend! I didn’t drive bikes myself till I was 26! So about 3 years ago! And my crash was in Kuwait!!! I was a bit out of control in the last 4 years there! I’m happy that you think this way Sum1! You seem a very smart girl! Not like me!! Well now I’m older and wiser! But it took me 10 years to get there!

  13. Nora: live and learn! Really! hehehe! so you have been riding for 3 years now? thats cool! What have you been riding then?

  14. Its about timming for u the HERO! not for 5waffa mthlly ^_^

    hi

    you remind me of nice time i had and all my good memories in kuwait , my bf with his bike and clothes when he ride his BMW and made my heart beet faster…

    I wish you always enjoy your riding .

    your bike is really awesome! i always fancy having this kind of bike. I used to ride a bike when i was still in my native land.

    your bike is definitely a headturner, though i seldom find any bike rider here in kuwait!

    and oh! its cool that you manage to put your protected gear when riding..

    whats your bike’s name anyway?
