I wouldn't ever want to ride a bike in the middle east. Driving is nuts by itself. At least where my parents live in Dubai it is, those people take road rage to a new level.

you have to keep in mind BM, we're comparing it to driving here in the US... which the everything else the US gov't is involved in has Many, Many, Many rules and regulations... And is acutally quite boring... which is why so many bikers break soooooo many rules.

I am comparing it to many countries not just the USA. It's pretty dang bad over there. Also you want rules and regulations, someone wrecks into you over there it's your fault because your a foreigner and you shouldn't of been in their country, but if you got a problem with our rules and regulations, you are free to move somewhere else.

Actually based on work experience and emplyment.. I'm pretty much stuck here. That and the fact that I still have a commitment to the MI ARNG, means I can't go AWOL... Sorry, I stand by my opinion on federal gov't interference in state traffic laws, and I can't leave the USA just yet.

Yes the rules here are lean compared to most places outside the middle east and it is mostly if you know someone "high" enough you could wheelie all day long and not get anything done to ya. But im sorry i dis-agree with you on the statment of coz your a foreigner you wont be given ur rite. Every place has bad apples, im sorry you got caught up with one while your were in the middle east, im not from Dubia anyway.. im 12hrs away.. Bahrain...
Next time you down here .. gimme a holler ill show u the ropes or give you some contacts

Hi there Gas man, thanks for the welomce ,
At the moment i own a gixxer 2002 red & black with a full akarapovic system, a power commander, Yoshi drop in cams, K&N air filter, TRE.
As for the gixxer 750, its got a slip on akrapovic and K&N air filter.
Im trying to get a 06 busa which i plan to make it into a 1397cc for the time being to go above the 200hp then it ill see how much i can afford to shell out on it..

Thanks Gas man I thought long and hard on the wheels when i got it in 02 and i kept the look coz i like it. The problem is the weather here gets so hot, it is about 45 C which is i think 120F so leathers i cant do in summer, winter is more bearable which runs from Nov till July (we dont have 4 seasons here, just 2, hot and cold..lol) so we ride on those months.
here is a link about Bahrain if you like
