Right.....time to get this out as I am not going to be able to do this for the next couple of weeks. I'm off to Japan to have a look at some bikes to buy, and to watch the Motegi MotoGP. I'm looking forward to finally meeting the people over there that we get our bikes through, plus it should be a bloody good trip. I haven';t been to Japan since i can't remember when, 39 years I'm guessing, so it will be good to re acquaint myself with that part of the world. Been a strange week business wise, now that the weather is picking up, I'm seeing a fair bit more activity on the bike sale, so that's all very good. Did the distinguished ride a week or so back, that was interesting. Not as good as the Wellington ride, but still some very interesting folk and bikes that come out of the wood work that's for sure. Wanted to take the F1 but I could not get it going, so bought out the trusty old ZRX which was nice to ride around on. On the way home, I had a bit of a spirited ride with a couple of others and my bow tie absolutely shat itself, I ended up with a tatty ribbon around my neck, I pissed myself laughing when I saw my self in the mirror. Anyways this weeks installment is a bit longer than normal due to me being away, so enjoy and please remember to share the blog with other like minded people, and I will try and do an installment form Japan, so you can all see what's been going on.
