Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Oh, Wheelie?

No need for Qatar's Lusail International Circuit, we have Khafji street right here in Duhail to accommodate those with a need for speed and showmanship suicidal tendencies.

This was not a one time event as we've seen these same three guys on this same street performing these same stunts on every straightaway between the roundabouts, while the traffic builds behind them. One of them has a really sweet hot pink bike...he can run, but he can't disguise that ride. You will find these guys and others at any given moment at Landmark outside of TGI Friday's where all the "cool" bikes congregate.

Pikachu spotted in the past

Update: "BATMAN" (sent in by @Vallath)

Update: Another friend sent me his blog post with Spiderman and Fendi bikes. Yes, the brand, FENDI. People around here go to all lengths to strut their stuff. On a side note, if I ever see one in Burberry, I will throw up. Check out @Kapilkb's blog at Earsplease.

  1. Sybil - loved it - just posted the link to this post on my blog - http://earsplease.blogspot.com/2012/01/fendi-branded-bike-along-with-spiderman.html

    1. Thanks, Kapil! Will do the same on this one in the body. LOVED the Fendi! ;-P

  2. Even though this is Morocco, this made me think of you!


    1. Haha...nice. I've only seen the two wheeling (the real deal like in the video) only once here in Doha. It was amazing. I was fortunate to have my camera in hand and got it all on film. The people in these parts are so skilled or just plain CRAZY! THANKS FOR SHARING!!


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
