    Twinrider mentioned he may be up for a ride. I am keen to get the
    Harley out for a spin. Not thought about routes though.

    I'm up for a ride but Doshi is getting pretty close to Fuji, usually roads are kind of hazardous out there this time of year.

    Dropped thru Ohama beach yesterday, just west of Shimoda. I camped there a few years back. On the west end of the beach there's a small cove protected from the oft strong west-south-westerly winds. Beautiful spot and deserted this time of year. Lot's of preseason prep going on. Unfortunately the curry shop across from the beach was closed along with all the other other beach related enterprises. I don't know if this means camping is acceptable this time of year or not though.
    What time you thinkin of heading out west on the sunday morning?

    Sunday is looking winterly cold. Although it's warmer down that way, still going to be frosty. Better bring some liquid fire!

    I'm up. I have to be in Fujiyoshida on Saturday at sometime so the YSP there can check I haven't missed anything on a coolant leak I had. Thanks for organising slowbike.

    I went up through the Doshigawa in mid January and even then the roads were clear with only snow on the sides in parts. A bikers winter indeed.

    If you score the big roof, will you take late arrivals? Gotta work until 6. Will bring liquid fire to cover door charge.

    Thus the problem with information leaks, it gets expectations up before everything is confirmed.

    Unfortunatly the house hasn't come through, so we will have to consider alternative accomodation or just going down and back in the one day, which would be a big warmup for the iron butt event.

    Regardless I will be going to Fujiyoshida tomorrow and will be getting to Ishikawa rest stop by 8am.

    After Fujiyoshida, I am very flexible if people want to do something different but would be keen to see the Izu skyline and coast roads.
