    I had a 400cc Honda TransAlp.
    Rode it for many, many years and it never let me down.

    Speedy recovery is all that can be wished for!
    And don't worry, those Japanese hospitals and doctors are not bad at all! (contrary to what some might say)

    I highly recommend going to Kurokawa-Onsen.
    Especially during the off-season there won't be too many people "interfering" with your onsen visits!

    Isn't the towing service always part of the insurance plan? Well, at least in my case.

    The Shikoku/Kochi area will definitely be great.

    But be aware that there might be some snow / ice in the mountain areas.

    Then again, who knows what the weather will look like at that time!
