Arimine – May 28/9, 2016

Busted out for 24hrs of riding, eating, yabbering, riding and more riding with 2 great wingmen JamesK and MTMatt. Cheers fellas! Made it there in good time and received a warm welcome from James and his band of merry off-roaders just back from a day on the trails.

My Streetgaurd 3 jacket is entering it’s 3rd season, just got a new fat YKK Aquaguard main zipper and needed a good clean and rejuvination of it’s water-repelling capabilities.

Winter Scout

Got out for a ride today. First one in too long! Started out cloudy then fined up a little once in the mountains but soon the cloud cover rolled back in. Finally hit rain in Atsugi on the run back. Surprisingly warm day for early March though, nice.


Happy New Year!

Hope you rounded out 2014 well and have had a great start to 2015. Looking forward to see old and new faces out on the road this year whether on a big or small bike, fast or slow or even with a wooly pillion!    


Tokyo Toy Run 2014

Great day out bringing Xmas cheer to kids who may not normally see much. Fantastic to see soooo many Santas and riders bringing xmas cheer. Looking forward to next year!
