8 Touge Challenge – Done!

Met up with JamesK early and went touge hunting. James was on fire and when I headed home, happy with 8 touges for the morning, he went out and had Okutama for an afternoon snack!

There were plenty of bikes out and most of the regular haunts along the run had a fair number of bikers about. JamesK spotted a pack of fellow FJRs and gave chase. He now has an invite to the May FJR owners club meeting in Karuizawa. Other than bikes, the roads are still reasonably quiet, thankfully.

Well, managed to hit 8touges in around 250km and had a great ride doing it. The weather was overcast and cold all morning. But the roads were dry and relativley ice free. Here’s a vid for the Miyoujin – Mikuni Touge route.
