    Default ** APR 12-13 ** Yamanashi rindo ride and camp

    Time to take Antkiller's good advice:

    Well, here it is. I know April may seem like a long way off now, but it'll be here before we know it, and with better weather for camping, too.

    This will be a rindo ride intended for smaller (i.e., generally 400cc and under) DP bikes. "Haildamage rules" will apply, which means you can bring your giant adventure bike if you want to, but you might not be able to hang with the guys on smaller bikes, and don't expect them to pitch in as your support crew when you get stuck.

    This ride is in the very early planning stages, so ideas on meet-up times and places, routes, campsites, etc. are all welcome.

    Sounds awesome. I have a few routes in mind, as I am sure Firebolt does too.

    I'm interested but the reality of me getting away for an entire weekend is slim, actually.

    So then just meet up and ride with us for a bit on the 5th, then go home. Make a day trip out of it.

    It would be nice to see you out on the road. I don't think I have since 2007!

    Oh of course. I'm thinking if making a loop that anyone can join and leave anytime. But as dirt as possible.

    I want to join this one, but not sure I can get away the whole weekend. I'll try to join the first day and split off mid-afternoon.

    I can't see a problem with changing the dates on my end.

    Sure it's okay! We'll post up a meeting point later on. It's still over a month away...

    I still want to join but I don't have camping equipment. Will you guys be staying at a campsite that also has cabins?

    Don't know where the campsite is yet, but I bet someone could lend you some extra kit... or you could take the plunge and get your own. Look at it as an investment in future bike camping.

    UPDATE: Here's some bargain-priced camping gear on Amazon.co.jp:

    Sleeping bag: 2,163 yen

    Tent: 3,562 yen

    Now you have no excuse!

    I can only ride the 12th. Will join if you guys have a Saturday route that involves a lot of rindo riding.
