I get this question a lot when people find out I have motorcycle. The only thing people equate me to is a pizza on the floor. But its difficult for those who don’t ride to understand, but I always try to explain. And I take my time to explain. There is something about putting that helmet on, putting your gear on and hearing the engine underneath you come alive.
When I ride with the gear on, and on any road I have a lot of anonimity which I like. And riding motorcycle sets you on equal grounds with everyone else that rides a motorcycle. You can relate to any person that rides a motorcycle because of the passion you have for riding a motorcycle. You have a conversation with another rider, and your surprised that he is a 65 year old man riding a Motto-Guzzi, or this executive of a powerful company riding a Suzuki GSX-R 750 around the mountains and you have been following him for hours. Meeting people with completely different backgrounds and finding out why they are passionate about bikes and their relationships to it is just a part of the experience. Everyone is connected by riding in one way or another which makes it feel great!
Another experience is your relationship with your bike, and the battle your brain has telling you what you should, what the bike wants to do, and what your body does inbetween them. Your desire to get every corner just perfect and flowing through every turn. The extreme concentration, and clear thoughts. There is nothing in your brain but you thinking through the next turn, the space you have, how warm your tires are, and the sound of the engine beating through you. There is a degree of mental and physical excersion that you feel when going through all these smooth flowing roads, with just the right turns. It feels exhilirating, and when you get home park the bike, take your helmet off, and you feel everything is just right. Your head has never been clearer.
Motorcycles are not about “need” and “sense”, its about want! What you want to do at that moment! Do you want to cruise! Do you want to take off! You want to feel that thrill! It just feels damn good! Some people want to cruise across the world in a motorcycle or they want to go a race track and enjoy the ride, some people want to race professionaly. I WANT to do all of the above! All I got is time! I hope people understand why I love riding! Why I can relate to people that ride! When I find out that somebody rides, the differences between us blurs, and all I want to do is talk about is bikes! It has happened a few times!
Thats why I love riding.
It does the job as an all-in-one, and it hasnt malfunctioned once. Im really happy with it, and the perfect thing about it is its compact size. It replaced our old crappy fax, as well as became the house printer. It prints images well enough on paper, but this printer is not meant to be a media printer. I dont think it would do well for those who want to print pictures. Its the best bang for your buck printer. The one that is replacing it, and its getting good reviews it the HP 6310, since this one is operating fine then there is no need to upgrade. But if your in the market then I would recommend the HP 6310 (98 KD).
Ok this is another update from Yazeed who traveled to the UK, and from there to the US.
You can carry a bag no larger then 115cm on all sides. And you can have electronics in your luggage, but be prepared to take it out of your bag to be scanned individually. Basically no liquids of any kind, and I dont think you can bring on make-up, not even lip gloss. So the security level has gone down a bit.
And I think reading Travel Update II would help to clear any other questions. If anything else comes up I will make sure to post it.
You know when you have one of those nights where you keep tossing and turning, and you cant fall asleep. No matter what you tried. I just had one of those nights. By 1am, I thought I should be asleep, but a few more minutes on the laptop, so at 1:30am I switched off the laptop tried to sleep, but I looked at my watch and it already 2:12am. I still kept trying, but by 3:15am I thought that I was screwed and might not get up for work. But if I was going to get much sleep let me at least enjoy myself, so I sit down and watch some anime. So around 4:25am I felt sleepy, and I was thinking to myself today is going to be a roung day.
I woke up at 7am, showered and went off to work. I thought I was going to feel dead tired from the get go. But I felt fine and awake. Got work things got going, and you get that light headache. The one you know its from lack of sleep. Going to be a long day. Probably take a long name when I get home.
And its humid as hell outside! I stepped outside, and my sunglasses became all fogged up, I couldnt see. Its really humid, and Im wondering how hot today is going to be. I feel sorry for people who wear glasses to see! And whats worse is that A/C at work isnt functioning properly, I think the humidity is getting to it!
This just turned out to be one of those strange movies. You start off with a certain scene, and then you jump from scene to scene. I dont know how to explain it well enough, but even half way through the movie half the people watching it didn’t know what the hell was going on. But I have to say this I was really impressed with Robert Downey Jr.’s acting, and opposite Val Kilmer they made a great duo. The character that Robert Downy Jr. seems to be very similar to him in certain aspects, you could say that his anti-social behavior in the past has come in handy for acting in this movie. And I think Val Kilmer plays his character very well as well, and they compliment each other in their own right. The story line keeps involving more and more murders, but you dont see the clear line except towards the end, and on top of that Downy is trying to fall in love. You have to watch it until the end, but some people wont like it. It just too cut up, and you have to remember certain parts. Some people will love this movie, and some will hate it. It wasnt bad but it wasnt good either, but I dont think its one of those movies that I wouldnt watch again, but had to watch at least once.

So Im heading over to my cousins place to watch a movie and chill with him since he was gone for the past month.
So I wanted to visit him after work on thursday, got home chilled for a bit, and I decided to head over. I got on the sixth ring road and decided to take the airport road there. And so I was going about 160 kph cruising down the road without any traffic, there was only a little on the right since it was 4:15pm. So then I saw the camera as I was coming up, then it flashed and I was laughing behind my helmet and dark visor!
If the cameras are working now they are going to have a lot of pictures of me! In gear! hehehe! Then I went over he was still jet lagged, and I we watched a couple of movies which I will be slightly commenting on. We popped in Alone in the Dark for the hell of it, it was the second movie we were watching and I have to say I give it a 0 out of 5 but with tara I give it -1! Seriously! Horrible! How did they even get money to fund this story! I wanted to break the dvd by the time it was done, but we popped in something else to improve what we were watching.
Then he was passing out, and I decided to go home early. And it was a nice chill ride hope, I had a police man come up on me because I think he was racing someone, but then I just took off because I know the cop was being a dumb and racing his friend. And I was right they were two guys racing each other, it only happens in Kuwait. I like chill weekends.
I enjoyed the first movie because it was different story line then something we have seen before, and so I looking forward to the sequel. I have seen this movie before, but a couple of days ago I remembered that I had it, I really wanted to see it again. This action packed sequel with a good following to the story line hit the spot. I think Kate Beckensale is gourgeous, and in this movie she looks fantastic. They did justice to the original movie, and the story line towards the end always gets me. You get pulled into the relationship betwee Selene and Michael Corvin, and what I love is not knowing exactly where this movie is going, that unpredicatable feel to it. You know there is going to be a sequel, but are they going to end it horribly like Matrix 2 or is it going to be good. And I have to say it was a damn good ending!
You know when you have those long work days for the week, and you drained everyday and dont feel like moving. This was one of those weeks. But Im pretty glad last night all the guys got together at my place and we were watching some drifting videos that my friend got. It was pretty funny it was US vs. Japan in drifting, and of course the Japanese guys won! Then they did a race on a racetrack in Japan between five very different cars; an M3 CSL, a 911 Carrera S, a Lamborgini Gialliardo, an M5, and fixed up GT-R. These Japanese guys are damn good, and the old school driver who was driving the M5 got it drifting out some corners like it was nothing! We were all caught up each one shouting for a specific car! It was fun as hell!
Then we started grubbing, popped in a movie and relaxed. Everyone was pretty much burnt out from this work week. But it seems nobody knew that next saturday the 26th is a holiday. So everyone was asking if you want to go here or there, or somewhere else. It was one of those good nights.
