    Calling home

    Hey all, been awhile since I was back in Perth but want to keep an eye on the scene and maybe share some experiences from over here, Japan.

    Well I ride an FZ1 over here with enough under the tank to keep me satisfied. The roads are awesome! Here's a good example

    and the views even better


    Like the name suggests(touge means mountain pass) I live for the twisties and if any of you guys are ever riding over then let me know and I'll twist your head of while your here.
    Also do a bit of Ironbutt riding too

    Enjoy the summer riding, it's freezing over here

    Wondering if anyone has any good tips/leads on bike rentals.
    I'll be in town for a week early next month for a funeral and need some wheels.
    Would appreciate any leads.
    Hope all's well with all on board.

    Cheers for the feedback from those who contacted me. Especially you Water pig!

    Ended up booking an MT10. Not the best choice considering what my mates have been telling me of the copious number of zero tolerance speed cameras, unmarked police cars and even helicopters. But, it does have cruise control which I'll be employing liberally to counter slips of judgement.
