With this weather Im always licking my lips, and if I put any chapstick Im always smearing all over the place to make my lips feel better. But the funny part is that the chapstick isnt completely clear it looks like dried milk all over your lips but damn it feels good. I dont know if anyone goes through this during this cool weather.
And especially when Im riding the motorcycle and the wind is hitting my mouth it gets really chapped in cold weather. So I stop for a drink to hydrate my lips before drying them again while riding. I need a riding mask under my helmet and that will complete the all black look with the black neck cover. By the time Im done I will look like a ninja. The best thing I do is put chapstick on before I sleep so the damage is repaired by morning.
Is anyone else having problems with MTC these days?
Something really strange is going on, and I dont what exactly MTC is messing about with in the background.
I woke up to Mark‘s phone call regarding his gas tank, and just giving him an idea how to fill up the bike. I got up a little bit after that, showered and got on my bike. But I really took my time and by the time I got down Mark already reached home. When I started up the Duke the roads looked wet so it must have rained in the morning. So when I asked they told it did. So I got my gear together and I was looking forward to a little wet riding.
I got on the Duke and headed down the Gulf Road starting from Miseela, and it felt like a fantastic spunky bike. And it was looking a bit cloudy so I wasn’t going to be long on the bike. I love how the cool wind was hitting me, and it the rush I was getting. I headed over towards Marina mall around 11:30am to stop for quick hot drink to help warm me up. Marina was packed with people and for the first time I saw that motorcycle parking spots were almost full and I filled the last spot. For the first time I saw many BMW motorcycles of the same model, and Robo’s long lost brother. The parking lot was filled and it was 65% Harley Davidsons, 30% BMWs, and 5% KTM (me).
I decided to walk over to starbucks for a hot chocolate to warm me up a bit. And after finishing up my hot chocolate I went back to the Duke to continue my adventure for the day. It seemed that KtheKuwaiti spotted me, but I only found that out when I was on the blog later in the day.
As I was riding back it started drizzling a little bit and I thought it would be perfect to test the bike and its tires. Riding in the rain teaches you a few things, I could feel the rain drops hitting my legs, and I could see the rain on my screen its funny. Your getting wet slowly yet you dont feel wet. Its a fantastic feeling riding in the rain, and Im used to it from riding in San Francisco. It was funny seeing people’s faces that a guy on a motorcycle is riding in the rain. Im afraid of the rain in Kuwait during the beginning but not when the road is already wet, but I still very causious with my riding and not taking any chances. But overall it was a fantastic day.
I was thinking about writing the meeting minutes of these three days which made me laugh
I think this was a fun filled weekend, I just wished I had a two day weekend instead of one. I also didnt have a chance to catch up with my cousin since he had to travel so no tv episodes this week, but mid this week we are going to catch up!
I tried organizing my music files myself instead of trying that music program but no luck since I really messed things up and I couldnt come up with a way that I could catalouge them and find things easily so I stopped. I think I should figure out a plan before starting, that would have helped a lot.
This was an entertaining movie, and I had a bit low expectations for it. It was a bit of conflict for me, I like Kate Hudson, but Im not much of a fan of Owen Wilson or Matt Dillon. But it turned out to be better then I expected, and my Michael Douglas added just enough flavor in this movie to make it funny. It was about a new couple trying to get things right in the beginning and Owen (the best man) trying to get his life together. Its a funny rollercoaster and how married lives could vary. Overall its an entertaining movie and worthwhile to watch.
I really want to watch these movies but no in the theater in Kuwait since the cinema here seems to cut up the movie in there own accord! It drives me nuts! My cousin went to Dubai for business and all he is doing in the spare time is watching the movies in the theater and it is driving me nuts. He recommended just to go to Dubai for one day and watch all the movies there and come back. It seems like a worth while idea just to watch all the movies I want one go, but you would have to do it with the right person and have the timings to all the movies in the theaters to schedule things over the two days.
This was one hell of fun day on the bikes. It was totally a bike day, I met with a friend who I took on the back of Robo for an hour and bit around the gulf road and other areas. And we were having blast, two people laughing their asses off with each one of us listening to music inside the helmet. I had my own DAP, and the other person had an Ipod. I was listening to HipHop/Rap/RnB and the latter to Techno/Dance/House. But we were having a blast and on the gulf road while we were on our way just for a quick pitstop in Marina around 2:30pm I ran into a really good friend who was laughing at the us they couldnt believe they spotted us. I got a text saying I had a nice jacket, which was a nice complement. Afterwards my friend had to go to meet up with family so I dropped them off back at our house and then I switched bikes.
I got on the Duke! Now what an amazing bike the Duke turned out to be. Its one hell of a fun bike and it takes the road differently, takes coners amazingly. Even though Duke is higher Robo I still felt the Duke was amazing on the turns and the engine was fantastic! This bike is an amazing motorcycle, I have to say that Im not a fan of the exhaust sound but that can be changed, but the everything else the bike surpassed my expectations. What a hell of ride, I went from Bida’a all the way to Shuweikh on the Gulf Road then down the 2nd ring road to Malik Fahad to ride home since I had a few things to check up on.
I have to say that everytime I saw a guy on bike with gear on it made me smile, and I was happy! It gives us riders a degree of credibility and keeps some people off our back. People rarely bother me except when they are idiots, which happens sometimes. And then if I see a guy riding a motorcycle without gear honestly it really pisses me off! The weather was amazing, and it felt fantastic listening to the right type of music and seeing so many people out and about in this beautiful weather with their families! Honestly it just makes the whole day feel so damn nice when everyone is in a good mood. And in days like these what I love the most is when Im riding and seeing kids in cars waving at me or giving me the thumbs up, and I have to at least wave! They are so true to their feelings its fantastic. I cant wait to ride on Friday as well.
Waking up this morning was fantastic since I was going to ride to work, and I had some choices to make. After showering and changing I went to the basement, I had to choose between Robo and the SuperDuke, but the Duke was low on gas so I decided to go on Robo and I didnt feel like trying something new on the ride to work. It was fantastic I was having a blast riding even though I knew I had a pile of tasks to take care of, and I had a few problems to deal with. Riding just makes everything so sweet, and I was looking forward to riding the SuperDuke later in the day, I really didnt know what to expect! All I knew that it was going to be good!
I would like to thank Tristar for giving me the chance to try out the KTM SuperDuke since I really like this motorcycle, so I will be comparing the bikes for the different feel and just writing the feel of th bike not specification comparison. But Im happy as hell I get to ride this bike, and the addition looks oh so good. Its one hell of a temptation. Now this is service, they value there customers and know who is addicted to their products.
I just think that these two look like siblings next to each other an they are two different machines that arent comparable since they both have different applications on the road, and I adore my Robo, and SuperDuke would be a nice addition. I know he isnt to everyone’s taste, but I usually just go by my own taste and feel.
Plot Summary: Aoba is a young girl who loves to build models of robots. She lived alone with her grandmother until her grandmother passes away. Shortly after she is kidnapped and brought to a secret base where she discovers a huge robot. The piloted robots fight against Ancient-Jinki in The Grand Savanna, but the true meaning behind the fights is hidden. Aoba works hard at the base so one day she can pilot one of the robots and discover these secrets.
Mecha anime sometimes follow a usual theme, and its very entertaining watching the use of powerful mechs. But this anime takes a completely different angle, and its all about the pilots and the lives that revolves around them. This anime does a little jumping between lives and you move from the main characters to other characters who become the main characters as its phasing through. Between Aoba and Akanao the story shifts and then it unites them in the end, at the end all the pieces come together like a good story should, and I really like that. Towards the end its about the team, and what each and everyone of them is fighting are fighting for, two sides to the same coin. I really enjoyed this short and sweet anime, it was only 12 episodes.
