HOGs last ride for 2005
Originally uploaded by fadibou.

Today was eventfull and long.
Morning period: Breakfast at Le Notre on Gulf Road, Ride to Second Cup salmiya.
Noon Time: Ride from Second Cup @ Galleria 2000 to Abdali Farms.
Night Time: Ride from Abdalli farms to Iraq border and then back to Kuwait city.
Recordings:
* Great breakfast
* 330 KM on the bike
* Longest ride so far
* 8 Degrees Centigrade at 120 KM/Hr
* Frozen hands, feet, neck, legs and ....
* Stone chips hitting me like a punishment
*. North Kuwait looks like a mini grand canyon with great rock formations
* Abdalli is far
* Iraq is close
* North Kuwait is colder by 5 Degrees
* North Kuwait has cleaner and less dusty air
* American tanks coming from Iraq
* American tanks going to Iraq
* Its a long way home when its cold and you can't close the window and the windshield is your helmet
* Most memorable clip: One of our fellow riders hit a piece of a blown tyre at 120 KM/Hr and he flew with his bike in the air, luckily he landed with his 2 tyres on the ground and continued without any injuries. Poor guy he flew like 1.5M off the ground and landed. I don't think he would do it again for a Million Dollars.
* My wife is upset, I have been out for 12 hours.

I took my bike for its first photo shoot. I went to the park in Massila and looked for the perfect blue sea background, I took like 120 shots and will be posting around 30. Enjoy as this little bad boy will be shedding some of its skin in the coming weeks.

  You scored as Faerie. Faerie: Aren't you a cute little flying person? Faeries are earth spirits. They live among each element completely hidden. They have cousins called Pixies. Pixies however, are very mischevious. They enjoy tormenting other creatures for fun. Little pranksters.. I hope you never meet one. Pixies have a bad reputation for finding a creature and clinging to them until death. Faeries can be somewhat close to a Pixie, but mostly they are loving, playful, and carry with them a child-like enthusiasm for life. Hide among the pedals of a Daisy, you are a Faerie.

I won't tag anyone cause this is annoying.

In times when you get bad news and you wish you don't understand what's happening is the time you whish you were 4 again when everything rotated around getting the 2 nicest things in your life; the xmas gift and the birthday gift. Today another death in beirut and another sad day for Lebanon. I just hope they stop cause it doesn't make sense to loose so many people anymore.

So am back from Beirut, 3 days of fun I can say. Weather however beat me badly, it was grey, cloudy, and hot. There was no snow in any visible area and the whole place was greeeeeeeeeey. I took this shot on the way back, its one of the north Lebanon peaks and since its over 2000 m, its got some snow. The only snow I could see was from 5000 m over Lebanon.

I did my first long ride today. 8:00 am all the way to wafra and back. Yeep burnt around 300 km today on the bike along with sometimes few and sometimes many other riders. 11:30 I was back to Radisson SAS and we took a slow ride all the way on gulf road to Shweikh and returned to park the bikes in Marina Mall and had lunch.
What a day, 120 KM/hr on the open roads and in freezing morning cold, what a feelin. Now the bad side is, I need to wash the bike and my wrists hurt like hell, I mean they hurt, pain, pain, I'd better stop typing ......

I guess you noticed, I changed the look of my blog and stopped the domain forwarding. So in 1 or 2 days, you can't come here using www.fadibou.com.
It will be available on http://fadibou.blogspot.com only
