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.
