Re: The Bandit in Japan

Cool, how was the riding over there? It's been a long time since I've been there. I do recall how narrow the roads were but this was way before I started riding.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: The Bandit in Japan

TM, Thanks for the correction.

The riding up here is suppose to be real nice, yes the prefecural roads are narrow. My bandit is still a virgin, as it hasnt made it off base yet, It is currently in the bed of a truck waiting to go to Yokohama tomorrow to take my ERC( cant get off-base license without it). Mt. Fuji is snowed in right now but there are still some good roads to drive here and since i found a GPS map in english for Japan, I am no able to plan my routes. I will be posting up more pics as they are taken, hopefully will get up to the "Big Buddha" next week and get some more pics up.

Re: David "GNNY8698" Burger, Naval Base Yokosuka-Yokosuka Japan

David, are you still in Yokosuka?

My husband and I spent the last 3yrs up in Misawa (P3 pilot). We never had the chance to ride down south but the area from what we saw on a drive out to Fuji was gorgeous. We rode quite a bit up in Tohoku.

One book I highly recommend you pick up for Japan is a map guide called Mapple Touring. It is geared specifically towards riders, with a very good index showing scenic attractions and good eats. We never went anywhere without it. It is in Japanese but between that, a pocket dictionary and some basic speaking skills, we got to see a lot.

Take care

Re: David "GNNY8698" Burger, Naval Base Yokosuka-Yokosuka Japan

I am still in Yokosuka, well I am out floating around right. I have met up with some guys that are stationed here and have been here awhile. When i am in-port my weekends are spent riding. We mostly spend are time southwest of Fuji, in the Hokane area. When i get back i plan on putting up a ride report and photo's of where we have been. I have done so much riding that i go through a set of tires in about 5 months. Most of our navigating is done by looking at a map and saying " this looks fun, lets go this way". So far it has turned out great. I havent been to Misawa but i did meet a couple of Airman from there last year when i was at Motegi for the MotoGP.
