Where the rubber meets the road!
Was out scouting the route tonight with some fellow twistybutters and got evidence of something many a twistybutter has long suspected… Twistybutts can lead to steaming hot tyres!
Kanto Twistybutt Scouting
Rolled into Ebina SA @5am to meet up with another Twistybutter only to find I was the only bike there. Over the next 1/2 hour, the bikes started rolling in.
With a coffee down and the sky lit, we scooted across the carpark to top off the tanks before setting out. I’d fueled up the car the day before at my local for 122yen/litre. Ebina SS with its great service was making us pay for it, 145yen/litre!(more…)
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.(more…)
500km of Kanto’s finest
Had planned a 800km day of smooth twisties but things kinda went sideways and we called it quits at @500km, well 2 of us did 🙂
Ready for the road trip? .. . . let’s roll.
1st Coast 2 Coast Twistybutt – Goldenweek 2011 – The C2C Touge Grenade
What are we talking about here?
C2C = coast to coast = Pacific Ocean to Japan Sea
Touge = A pass between two adjacent territories traversing some sort of natural geographical barrier = 峠
Grenade = a small package with a big punch!
So, a relatively short ride (compared to an ironbutt) from the Pacific Ocean to Japan Sea via as many twisty bits as can be strung together. All in a day!
