Beginner to riding in Dubai!
 
Hi everyone

I have recently passed my motorbike test here in Dubai! Wow - it was so difficult and all of 5minutes long!!

It was a very amusing experience but I still feel I need more practice to gain confidence, especially on these crazy roads.

Can anyone give me any tips/advice on riding in the UAE, especially for a newcomer to bikes? Or does anyone know of any absolute beginners like me?

I've been driving here and Oman for 7 years but don't think I'm ready for SZRoad on a bike just yet!.

Cheers
Lou :scooter:

What about touring Oman In late September?
(OK, we'll let the sheik tug along on his flashy mount!)
BTW
Anyone in the region up for a tour of Oman?

Yes, I am.
BTW It might be a bit fraught riding around Sharjah & Dubai but I haven't been hit yet. I got driven into by a stationary car pulling into traffic from the opposite side of the road in sleepy Grantham last month!

First timer...
 
hi guys.... i'm going to be visiting your country next week. Can you give me any tips where to rent a motorcycle and where i should ride. I would like to do just day trips as my girlfriend will be attending a dental conference and she wants me to be around for supper. I'm staying at the AL QSAR for a week starting Oct 22 tll the 28 then at the Sofitel for the next 10 days.... If you guys would also be interested in hooking up with a fellow rider from Canada that would be great too.

Hope you guys get to read this post before i leave from Montreal...
