    That is very interesting. I imagined there was a central Mapple committee that standardized everything.

    But even if it's more of a region-by-region effort, it certainly seems like the same types...

    Nice video.

    Dang. It sucks that I was RIGHT. THERE. only a few months before it closed, but rode on by. Thanks, Mapple... :icon_evil:

    Anyway, I did manage to get some good views of the same...

    Wow, they make it look like a no-name goat path! At least now I don't feel so stupid for missing it. Who would pick that road over the one with purple highlighting and red scenery dots?...

    Wow. I remember planning my Golden Week 2013 route out of the Kyushu Mapple, making sure to put in all the good roads. I can't see how I left that one out. Surely Laputa must have had some special...

    You definitely have time for the Nishi-Izu. In fact, it will actually save you time!

    Basically, you'd be cutting off the northwest "corner" of the Izu peninsula, and taking Rt 136 to Rt 411 to Rt...

    That's a much better route you have now, but it looks like you are missing the Izu skyline. It's the curvy orange road running north-to-south close to the east coast. Take the Izu Skyline south as...

    drbeamer, I notice on your latest route map you still have the east coast of Shikoku and Izu on there. I strongly recommend finding a way to head inland through the mountains and then back out to...

    Damn... Somehow I managed to miss Laputa while riding right past it. And now it's gone forever. :sad:

    Also, I need to add two exceptions to my no-expressways rule: The two times it makes sense to be on an expressway are:

    (1) You need to get somewhere in a hurry, or

    I could go through your route road by road with suggestions, but I can sum it all up in one sentence: ALWAYS LOOK FOR TWISTY LOCAL ROADS INSTEAD OF STRAIGHT EXPRESSWAYS. To add some more detail:

    Before I left, rdkng103 said he was going to plan it this year. Sounds like it's time for a friendly reminder.

    In Shinjuku: http://www.gpsstore.jp/

    They have a huge selection in the store, so you can see the stuff before you buy. Good if you prefer buying in a store instead of online.
