Thursday Ride

I left work around 1 pm and I just went straight to the sea side to ride home! Suprisingly it wasn’t as hot as I was expecting, as I was riding the weater was fluctuating between 34 – 39 degrees. What was nice as I was riding down the seaside I would get a cool breeze every once in a while. It was a time when the streets were empty and I was enjoying the roads as if they were my own track! The only problem I had was the damn stop lights! There were too many of them, I rode the seaside from Shuweikh all the way to Miseelah Beach Hotel.

The only issue I had were people who were on the road weren’t paying attention, it seems the heat was getting to them even though they had A/C and I didn’t! Then as I was passing Marina Mall my gas light turns on telling me I’m almost out of gas! The problem I faced was that there isn’t any gas station in that area which has the green gas used for high compression engines! My only choice was to ride at low RPMS and keep my momentum going, even at a light I switched off the bike to try to preserve gas. I was trying to get o Bayan gas station from the seaside and with my luck I was going to make, I was hoping for it! As soon the light turned green next to Blajaat I gunned it and tried not to slow down or rev too much, keeping things steady, even at the round about I kept going. Then I cut right into Rumaitheya and I flew to the light and I made it after 14.6 kms! I was riding into the gas station thinking I MADE IT! hehehe! Then I put filled up the tank and rode around for a little while longer.

When I got home I took a very nice cold shower which really hit the spot since I was drenched after riding in that heat!

    so economically it’s a good choice if you don’t have to carry much

  8. Laialy: Pretty much, you don’t need much, gas is very little but you can cover a lot, but you can’t carry much!!
