with no commitments I'd go for it

Once in a life time experience. Even if it doesnt work out well. It was an experience at the least.

And that is what we live for. Experiences. Its all that you take with you when your time is out.

Go for it bro..a friend of mine works in Dubai, got himself an 1199 R, rode all the way to Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi for California SBK School :)

Buuuuuuuuutttttt....please do bring tons of water when you go riding...it's gonna get very hot and you need to rehydrate yourself every now and then :)

I travel a ton for work, in fact im currently in the Cebu. Been to parts of Saudi including Dubai, Riyahd and Jeddah....To be honest, its not great. Maybe for a part time gig, but I wouldn't position myself long, just my opinion. Even though Dubai is a lil less conservative compared to the other locations I have been to, ultimately its just a bunch of hotels and shopping malls. It would get very old quick for me.

I'm from New Zealand originally, I made a career move to the UK that kept me there for 11 years and have since lived and worked in Dubai for just over two years. Dubai is totally different from the other Gulf states. You can do everything here that is legal in most countries.

On the surface of it, it does appear to be hotels and shopping malls, like SDRider said. I hate shopping malls and I'm not too keen on hotel resorts either... But there are plenty other things to do here. It's not for everyone but if you like sunny weather almost every day of the year, swimming, surfing, bike riding, desert bashing (4x4/dirt bikes/quad bikes) and meeting new friends from all over the world, then you'll get by just fine here. There are more things to do than that, those just happen to be the main things I am into. Yes it gets faarken hot in summer, however everywhere has a/c and the out-door swimming pools are cooled. I prefer summer here to miserable, cold, wet, icy winters any day. The "winter" here is amazing. Around 22-25C every day from November through March. It's about to start warming up any time soon now though.

I hope you get to discover some of those things while you're here. You'll see there are two very decent tracks here as well. Yas Marina (F1 track) and Dubai Autodrome, also an FIA spec circuit. Both host frequent track days.

You're welcome to pm me if you want to chat or meet.
