Kicking back with a mug of Yorkshire tea while uploading date from my GPS Navigator to the mapping software. We left early, early, early this morning for a 190km ride through the Fall mountain colors. Today is a National Holiday in Japan, it was the first really perfect-Fall weather-sunshiny day we've had, and we knew the main roads would be jammed. So we left home early to beat the traffic, and got ourselves into the mountain roads. I think every mother's son and daughter who have motorcycles chose today to make a mountain ride. We rode with hundreds of other bikers, on and off as we passed each other. We planned to picnic but it never warmed up and when we got to a major rest area with a restaurant, the parking lot was packed with bikes! Fantastic day all around! Oops! Upload is done. Gotta plot the route for next time!
