Honda CB Unicorn...

I don't know how they come up with their names but at least we get the good ones. Just ran into one of these while passing through dubai. Seems to be a pretty epic honda dealership here unfortunately its 2am and i have to leave before they open.

Looks like a Honda Ham Shank more than a Honda Unicorn.

hey... im not your typical so cal person who doesnt know or hasnt driven in the snow / ice one bit... i drive in it quite a bit during the ski season.

4x4 chevy 2500hd + Micheline MS2's make for a really easy drive on ice rink roads like below... that was 2 weeks ago. .. i stopped at one point to take another picture down the road at a lake... almost at shit as i stepped on the ground... literally all black ice. Id much rather drive on snow pack than ice.

Dubai

Well I feel like a super douche for missing my flight today, however they did send my updated flight time in a confusing email, so hopefully nothing bad will come of it, work wise.

On the other hand, I did have a great time exploring Dubai today...
Here is the pic of the unicorn I spotted along with a couple random shots of the city. If there were any place that I would never want to ride a motorcycle, it is here. People drive like idiots about 5 inches from each other's bumpers at 80mph.

Wow, 720,000 units sold in 2007.... Sounds like another Honda Cub in the making to me.

Yeah not at all, but at least it sort of has the same body style. I saw this guy at the airport, he seemed like a regular so might be the same guy.

With the military/ contractor pool here in the forums i feel like its not too far fetched, but yeah pretty neat it turned out that way. Boskru, were you just passing through or did you stay in town?
