Featured Greetings From Saudi Arabia!

Discussion in 'Newbies Hangout' started by Andrew Fillingham, Sep 16, 2019.

  1. I'm definitely a newbie as this is my first Ducati, even though I have ridden a few in the past. I'm a Brit ex-pat working out here, luckily I live one hour from Bahrain. There are plenty of fellow riders there, a Ducati dealership and the Bahrain International circuit. It's cooling down here and the season is about to start. The photos are from a test ride last season, the bike is still evolving! Looking forward to riding my very special 1299 Panigale! Test ride (5).jpg Test ride (6).jpg

  4. Fine on the test ride, I just rode to the conditions. The roads in Bahrain are better. Then there's the circuit. I'll find out and let you all know

  6. Greetings, Andrew Arabia

    At least the Pani won't rust!

    Don't use the Saudi-Bahrain road on Fridays or Saturdays. You know why.
     
  7. With all that humidity??
     
  8. The fine layer of sand will protect it from humidity. Even Bahrain humidity : o )
     
  9. The good weather is coming, the humidity is decreasing! Can't do much about the roads though!

  10. You're probably correct, one quick sandstorm and it will be submerged :D
