    Don't be so modest! You actually put on more mileage and saw more places than I did on this trip. Keep this up and you'll be taking my touring crown. :razz:

    Yes, I took R1 all the way back up to R268. Lovely sweeping bends!

    East of Tottori, you're right. Reminded me a lot of west/south west Izu only it never stopped, until it got dark. Then Tango Hanto came up and the HIDs illuminated my path to night riding heaven.


    So, where are you off to next?

    Not quite yet! Hokaido still looms on the horizon and there are several places to revisit more carefully. I don't think it's possible to go everywhere in Japan. The possibilities are endless! 8)

    Hokkaido's an iffy place. It's easy to get caught in crap weather with no escape if you booked the ferry. I'm planning on spending more time in Tohoku exploring in greater detail. Loads of nice roads up there.
