There are quite a few riders in Jeddah, all sorts (SBKs, Harleys, Beemers).

Contact a certain "haroon" on advrider.com He is a regular rider and posts on the forum, but i'm not sure if he is a member here on HUBB.

let me know if you need further help.

well, saudi is infamous for the arrogant/careless driving style all over the middle-east and jeddah seems to be no exception to it, though i would rank Riyadh the worst, Jeddah a close second and Al-Khobar the best by far.

cheers and good luck
