"Out & About in Japan" ... funny bikes

     There are times when a name can be trendy these days.

     "Hello. What's your name?" ... "My name is Raunchy Rose, nice to meet you!"

      But things get a lot more interesting when you start naming bikes. Sure, Trek, Cannondale, Yeti etc. are all legendary names but WTF!?!?

                                                     ... a "Monkey * D* Luffy" complete with cool cartoon character ... what the hell is that????? LOL!

     Some great names follow ... enjoy ;)

# OUT & ABOUT in Japan # ... Cherry Blossom Season

       Cherry Blossom season is certainly a big event here in Japan.

     It's also that time of year when everyone packs away their Winter frowns and the Spring mood begins to gather.  Spring in Japan is very special!!

     The season actually starts a little early when the Plum Blossom is the first to appear.  This flower is quite small and is a purple/pink delight that starts to get the locals excited knowing that Spring is just around the corner.

# OUT & ABOUT in Japan # ... Jyukai ( suicide ) Forest Part 2

                            WARNING <      > WARNING  

      Part 2 of our trip to the Mt. Fuji forest called Jyukai has two videos that are or could be quite disturbing. The first clip has verbal dialogue that could be disturbing, the second has visual footage that is disturbing!! That is why a warning has been given ... you have been warned!!

     Before you watch these videos I suggest you take a look at the PART 1 Story of Jyukai Forest just so you can get an idea of what the journey to the forest is about. It can be found on the home page of this blog in the Top 10 of what is looked at most. Actually I recommend it!!

Out & About in Japan ... MotoGP's Nickey Hayden

A poster of Nicky Hayden outside the Dainese shop

     With the Japanese MotoGP being one of the sporting highlights here in Japan Tokyo is lucky every year to receive these wicked dudes that fly around the race tracks at 300Ks an hour,  and occasionally, we the public get to meet them too!!

     The venue this year was Dianese's new shop down at Odaiba in Tokyo Bay.
