Three Amigos Riding

This wasn’t the usual combination of riders and we also ran into the wolf pack while we were riding this time around. The wolf pack are a bunch of guys who love everything about riding and it doesn’t matter what they ride they are always together and I love that.

We were 2 Ducati Diavels and one Harley V-Rod, and we can all assume who were having more fun out of the road. I kept help but poke a little bit of fun at Harley but I can always respect those riders because they are a dedicated group and always watch out for other riders, and that is something I respect.

We went all the way to Doha for our usual route with a few changes and heading back down the 7th ring road since we wanted to try something a little different. Whats fun is that we know our limits but still have a lot of fun, I can’t keep the smile off my face when I’m riding the Diavel. One thing to note is that the Diavel can do 0-62 mph in 2.6 seconds which is just ridiculous for a sport cruiser, and I love that it can handle. And one thing that drivers never learn is that most bikes are faster then cars, unless you have jet turbine in your car, and a highly modified Nissan GT-R had to learn that the hard way, and I could see the disappointment in his face at 8 am on a Friday morning.

Wakeboarding – Liquid Force Harley 143

I have always been a fan of Wakeboarding and I remember trying it about 5 or 6 years ago and I liked it but never had the chance to do it again until recently. This summer I would wakeboard every weekend or any chance that I got. I love the feeling of being sore the next day, feels like a real workout. I would take 10 – 15 min breaks between sessions, I had a few hard falls but I still kept trying. Last week the bindings from my Loose Unit Wakeboard ripped off the board and stuck to my friends foot as he took a fall.

So I decided to pick up a real high quality wakeboard since I’m wakeboarding almost every weekend even though the water has been a bit on the rough side. So I called and Extreme Sport in Tilal carried Liquid Force which is one of the best wakeboarding manufacturers out there, and I am far from a professional but I would I get a comfortable board which is easy to maneuver and light, that is exactly what the Liquid Force Harley 143 is, and I got the Savon Bindings with it which were overkill for me because they held on too much. These bindings are meant for smooth waters so you have complete control over your board, in my case I wanted the open toe bindings which give you that extra leeway when moving around. And in this photo session Abdulla my friend was the guinea pig, lets just say we can’t recommend this board enough.

Review: Sons Of Anarchy

A show about bad ass bikers on the west coast, don’t think they could have done anything wrong. I thought this show might not be as good as I was hoping but I was wrong. Sam Cro or Sons of Anarchy is a chapter of riders across the US with their base in Charming California, they come across as bad ass with thier gun running operation and very large setup. The story starts off with this but there are a few more developments and the story revoles around Jackson who is the VP of Sons of Anarchy and the President is his technical father, as his real father died a little while back. The surprising part is finding out the story has some similarity to Shakespeare Hamlet, and Jackson as Hamlet finds that his views are different then those of the current leadership, that Sam Cro could be heading to a bloody end and he has to find his way and bring his group out of the flames. A great show and it just kept on getting better, and season two is kicking off and I’m really looking forward to it.

Krugger Motorcycles

Now this is one unique machine, if I’m not mistaken it is built with a Buell engine and pretty much everything else is custom made. The rims are from a V-Rod but the body parts are hand crafted meant for use in high speed tests. The look of this machine tickles my curiousity, I wonder how it handles and feels, wouldn’t mind getting my leg over one but since its custom there probably won’t be that many of them on the road.
