    That's a good tip. Haven't shopped for car seats yet, I assumed they would be big and not portable. Nice to know this, that should make things easier for sure.

    Lot of respect for folks who do this. Can I ask where you learned about farming? Self-taught? Grew up with it? Learned from someone here in Japan?

    Thanks a lot for the pics! Looks like a nice setup. I was imagining that you'd need to wedge the bike in kind of diagonally because of the limited space, but from the tyre marks on the plywood looks...

    Thank you everyone for the opinions on kei-cars/vans/trucks! I briefly considered a kei-truck, because I'd love to be able to carry a bike, but we really need a back seat.

    True, it's worth a try for at least a month I guess. If we did need a multi-day rental we could always go with our usual cheapy car-rental company (Niko-Niko).

    I'm sure we won't use it literally every single day. By "daily driver" I just mean that we'll use it fairly regularly for shopping etc. Probably a few times a week.

    Buying a cage

    So, I have a new son, and it's time to do the adult thing and buy a car. Don't worry, not selling the bike, that's non-negotiable.

    It'll mostly be daily driver around Kawasaki / Tokyo, but we'll...

    Good point! It's an L.

    I'm 178 cm / 75 kg and it's a good fit for me, or someone a little bigger.

    Not sure where you could buy this in Japan .. I bought it in Australia and carried it over...

    I agree, there are some real bargains secondhand. Foreign bikes don't seem to hold their value as well as domestic models. Even just a couple of years old. So buy secondhand is my advice.

    If two bikes isn't an option, definitely go with one that makes you happy in my opinion. That said there are a lot of nice bikes in between 250 and a 1200 to consider that might fit the bill :)

    For sure, if it's between 50,000 and 100,000 there mustn't be many people out for a used one (unless they're really handy and have the time and skills to do it themselves I guess).

    At least you know it's probably been ridden regularly, and probably not just to the shops and back. That mileage plus the current location explain the price difference I guess.
