BMW boys took a stroll Sunday.

Down the southernmost cape of the main island.

The weather was clear and cold. 33 degrees F up to 49 degrees, and back down to 32 degrees.


Blue sky gave way to intermittent cloud cover.

Overcast by 4pm. Freezing rain began after dark at 5:30pm

Wind energy project on the mountain tops.

Save the dolphins movement began at "The Cove" in Taiji town.
Save Japan Dolphins: September 2010

Leilani Münter #59 Operation Free racecar in the ARCA series supports green energy and dolphin protection.

Lava flowing into the sea created some unusual rock formations.



Some strange islands, too.

This is for Hoshiko. He likes this generic Honda NC700.

Wakayama Castle built 1585

ShionoMisaki Lighthouse lit in 1873. Radio station.

Looks like one heck of trip Clem. I'm jealous that you get to explore the beautiful island. Were you affected by the earthquake?

Nope. Damage was on the eastern coast. I'm in the central area. Lucky.
Keep on bending and welding. The results look great! (even if the LEOs won't pass it) :)
Thanks Dave. Nice new blue 'ride' there yourself. Enjoy.

NC700???? :clown::clown:

Good thing I can't feel the cold just by looking at the great pictures.

Sorry about someone vandalizing your saddlebag.


Anyone who makes fun of my Christmas tree LEDs, please see Clem's sticker.

You just convinced me to save the dolphins. With her, I even like the Miami shitty ones.:001_tt2:

Cold here. Sure looks hot in Miami. Every pic she's holding her helmet. Bet she'd like a helmet lock, too. :clown::clown:

Maybe the US has got some things going for it. I'll have to make Miami one of the places to visit.

Dave, Surely Yonderbob would show you a good time in Florida, but that photo ain't Miami. Atractaspis was right. Wasn't looking at the car or the racetrack. Eyes distracted elsewhere. Duhh... That photo is at Irwindale Speedway near LA California. Regrettably, they filed for bankruptcy in Feb. this year after Toyota pulled sponsorship. Leilani in the flame jumpsuit is still racin'. Both LA and Miami offer good riding weather in winter, as Yonderbob has so painfully pointed out.

That'll be cool. I bring the coleslaw on one of my saddlebags and some deodorant/baby wipes for the wrestlers freshness on the other.

You mean you blew the batteries out of your "thermometer"?
:idisagree: The one battery died, but I already order some from fleabay.

The US has so much going for it, Miami is only one of the millions of things.

January 21st, will be my 10th anniversary since I came to the States, I love traveling, and had the chance to visit great places without leaving my now home, I have to say that California is one of my favorite states, I love Maine, specially Portland, I lived in FL for almost a year, half of it, on the Miami side and half on Pinellas park, anyone who knows that place, will understand how the inferno looks like.
Lived in Charleston SC for another year, lovely "city" but between the "palmetto bugs" and the lack of cultural variety I sadly said ADIOS.

I lived in Manhattan 4+ years before FL and SC, love the city but the croudness every single minute of your life, will drive you crazy, so when I came back, decided to give Brooklyn a chance.
Just bought a house, I think I'll be here for a while.

Doing a US tour is definitely on my to do list. Looking at 2014 at the earliest as I already have plans for next year.

There was a very cool article in last months "Bike" magazine, a Brit Mag, about one of your compatriots who just got his bike license and decided to rent a Harley Sportster and ride across the U.S. He did it in very early spring, complete with snow, without a windshield or electric clothing. Mad dogs and Englishmen, indeed. . .

The fearless couple in my Heavy Touring thread were from UK also. They went around the world on an old Guzzi. Lionheart. Gotta love 'em!!!
