A Lesson in Tennis

Every great dream starts with a dreamer and a lesson in any game will instill a passion in life that could be a turning point for some. Tennis is a racket sport which can be played individually against a single opponent or between two teams of two players each. Each player uses a tennis racket that is strung with cord to strike a hollow rubber ball into the opponent's court. We chose to showcase a passion in tennis with a friend of mine which produced great images as well.

Bring up a child about the way he should go and he will not depart from it even in old age. Expose a child to all the things you know to be beneficial to you, with time they will learn their passions and take up what interests them

Offroad riders and Outdoor lovers

The first light at dawn, the calm fresh air, the clean earth that has been washed by the rains, the quiet sight of the gazelles grazing, the tale to tell of the sunbird probing the flowers . . . . Fresh outdoors with only two wheelers, 4X4's and cameras. Thats what i am talking about, thats what i am thinking of today. I just want to go away

The sort of weekend that wakes up at the crack of dawn in a field with flowing waters and rivers. The one time when you will wake up earlier than normal not because you are headed off to work and wont be late, but simply because you do not want to miss a moment with that early bird.

No matter what the weather, no matter the career, no matter the religion, no matter the colour; outdoor lovers and adventure riders are just simple people who will not be confined to the four corners of a room. The people who seek the thrill to story tell by the camp fire, listening to crickets and the fire crackers as the tell of the previous adventure. 

Most of the time it is just normal people loving the outdoors, riding for pure fun to even nature trailing simply for pure enjoyment. Heroes are not always professionals who are doing the extra-ordinary but normal people like you and I who do what they love. We just love waking up to different sights and sounds and with that the weekend is made. 

Super Bike Drag Race in Kenya 2018

A super bike drag race involves two participants lining up at a drag strip waiting signaling by a marshal for the race to start. These bikes race on a long two straight paved tracks and the rider to get to the finish line first is the winner. The race is about who is fast out of the drag strip, who can maintain a higher acceleration and which bike is in the best condition to take it. Experience here matters as small mistakes can prove to be costly.

Apart from the Ducatti panigale 1199R the drag winning bike, several other big super bikes graced the tracks. The likes of Yamaha R1M, Suzuki GSXR 750, Honda CBR 1000RR, Kawasaki ZX 1400r, Yamaha R6, Honda 600RR were here. These bikes were fast and getting them on motion at particular points was a lesson in itself.

The bikes with similar CC,s were paired for the race and the racers got several chances to test their bikes. Muscle and endurance was also tested. The big boys and girls were all ready for the show. Though always riding together as a family, this was race day and everybody was here to show off skill, balls and what their bikes could do

With the increase of traffic in the Kenyan roads recently, the bike seems to be gaining acceptability as a means of transport beyond the adventure. Bike companies should consider taking up this huge opportunity to make available their guns for this market. Commuter bikes, Super bikes and adventure bikes most of all are being seen as the main type of two wheels that majority are gunning up for. Its an opportunity for any recognized company willing to set up shop, sell and maintain the product that will be able to make good margins in this
