If like me you’ve never understood the attraction of being off road but on only two wheels, then spend one afternoon watching a MotoCross race.  The power, the noise, the speed, the mud, the flying and of course the competition (both against yourself and others); all add up to make a fun race and a great sport.  The racers are crazy to say the least.

The last race of the season was yesterday.  Adrenaline posted about MotoCross some time back; and about this race, he posted again last week.  It’s a nicely organised event – and screems in the face of anyone who claims there isn’t much to do in Kuwait.  The hospitality was wonderful, the location convenient, and the atmosphere very relaxed and welcoming.  I will take the family next time.  I had planned to but my daughter, Noor, was very poorly yesterday and is recovering today.

I’ve always found Harley people to be friendly – especially here in Kuwait.  We were having lunch at the Free Zone earlier this afternoon when a group pulled up for a break.  I didn’t hesitate to take the children out to say hello and have a look.  It turned out even better when one of them recognised me.  He’s a good friend and owns the impressive bike photographed above – Mashallah.  He even lent his helmet and sun-glasses for Yousef to pose in.

Thank you Bu AbdelAziz.

It is so impressive how much the Thai people can fit on a motorbike. I saw a family of 5 on one the other day here in Phuket. The photo is of a man who’s converted his into a delivery truck.

This is a very interesting place with many smiling faces. I’m here on business staying at Le Meridien Phuket. What a place! It’s a shame I only have one afternoon free.
