Riding Lesson #1

Post by Mark

Today I had my first riding lesson. It was really cool because I got there and there were two training motorbikes, two mechanics, this cool American biker called Kevin AND Jafar Behbahani, the owner of TriStar where I got my bike from. I had heard a lot about him and how cool a guy he was so meeting him was like really great. He spent the first half of the course teaching me how to ride but then had to leave for a meeting but Kevin continued in his place.

My lesson didn’t go that bad. I was stalling a lot in the beginning but near the end of my lesson I started getting the hang of it. My left hand and right hand can not coordinate together which is what made my lesson difficult. Its hard for me to do one thing with one hand and a different thing with my other hand, but they told me with practice I will get the hang of it and I can’t wait till that day comes. My second lesson is tomorrow, I am going to try to finish up all my lessons very quickly so I can get my license ASAP.

I really have to say I am extremely impressed with TriStar, Marzouq had told me before about how good they were and thats why he had recommended I get my bike from them but I didn’t think they would be this good. They are real professionals. If anyone is interested in a Ducati, KTM or BMW motorbikes, new or used then you should pass by them or give them a call. They are located in Kuwait City, at the end of the Istiklal freeway, opposite Al Khaleejiah Complex. You can call them on 2405194 (ask for Salem) or visit their website on tristarkw.com.

Tomorrow is my second lesson, should be really fun.

Alpinestars Stroke Shoes

alpinestars stroke shoe

Today I finally have my first biking lesson. It really sucks having a bike and not being able to ride it and now I can’t wait till I finally get my license. Since I am going to the lesson right after work I have my helmet, gloves and jacket in the car. I am also wearing my biking boots which are the Alpinestars Stroke shoes. They are pretty cool and they don’t look half bad either. They also make me feel like a biker even though I still don’t know how to ride a bike which is pretty lame.

The weather is getting really better really quickly. I can’t wait till Ramadan starts since the roads would get deserted at around 5:30pm which would be perfect for a newbie biker since I can fuck up and not have to worry about getting run over.

I was checking the forum today and found cool pictures posted by Mocman of a pimped out Honda Accord in Saudi Arabia. It looks like it could easily fit into the upcoming Transformers movie. [Link]

What are you doing with your KD200?

Post by Mark

Someone asked that question in the forum and I thought it was interesting. In case you didn’t know, the government gave every Kuwaiti KD200 two days ago. So the question is directed to the locals, how are you planning on spending the money? The funniest thing I heard was that some guys were betting KD200 against each other in rounds of Winning Eleven on the PS2. Easy come easy go..

Fetch Art for iTunes

Post by Mark

One of the coolest features of iTunes 7 is the album cover browser. Problem is if you don’t have the album art its pretty useless. iTunes does come with an option called “Get Album Artwork” but you need an iTunes music store account to get it working and to get an iTunes music store account you need a US credit card. Sucks but there is some good news. Before iTunes 7 when there was no “Get Album Artwork” option I used to use a script called Fetch Art to download the album covers. I just tried it now and it is still working with iTunes 7 so I figured some people might find this script usefull. Its only works on Macs though so PC users need to find another option. [Link]

update: I just found this other software which seems cool while trying to find a Windows version. [Link]

update 2: PC users, here are 2 programs that downloads art. [Link 1] [Link 2]
