Curvy Ride

Usually Mark and I meet up for Friday and keep our ride in and around the city. This time I thought to take him some where different since he is getting a bit bored of the usual route and he is more capable of his bike at this point! I decided to head out to Mina Abdulla and take the internal roads from there! I wish there was an internal road starting from Fahaheel but damn refinery is in the way.

When starting in Mina Abdulla we had a few curves and things were getting interesting, lots of beautiful comfortable curves on the internal roads and I’m happy most of it has been repaved. There weren’t a lot of people on the road since it was a little early on a Friday morning. I love taking those sweeping curves trying to drop my bike as much as possible, and at first Mark would be way behind, but after a little while he was getting the hang of it. It was comfortable sweeps on these nice two lane roads.

When we got to Julai’a we had to go through the Naval Base security check point, I wasn’t sure if they were going to let us through. Last year they didn’t let me through, but the guy waved us through when we were on the bikes. As we got towards the end you can really see all the equipment and presence of the American military, then we hit the second check point and he let us out this road. We continued our ride until we reached the end of Bnaider and decided to head back at that point, refueling at the Al Zoor gas station before riding back since we did a decent amount of riding.

On the way back we were cruising at 140 kph and at times we were holding at 160 kph and Mark was still passing me! The roads were great, and Marks’ riding improved drasticly which was fantastic! By the time we got back on the Gulf road starting at Salwa our bodies were slightly sore, but it was one hell of ride!

    Marzouq not drasticly it’s drastically ;) Nice to hear Mark passing you ;)

  2. How different is a monster from your bike? and what do you think about buell bikes?

  3. I’m glad you enjoyed a good long riding at last after all what’s been happening with you lately! ;)

  4. Mo Hat: I was typing it half asleep! hehehe

    G-Funk: sweeet! Thanks!

    Qais: extremely different, it liks comparing a Porsche Turbo to Nissan 350Z, mine is built and bred for racing. The buells have great handling motorcycles, but the problem is that their engines feel a bit sluggish and there are other choices out there. I would go for the KTM SuperDuke if you are looking at a Buell.

    Nora: Thanks! It was a good ride! I love my bike too! :)
