    This remides me of riding my Harley in Japan - when stationed there

    When I rode my Shovel in Japan, I was blessed by every man of cloth I could convince to to bless me (and that was not always easy), including a Budist Monk............. never got a scratch ' over there'.

    Edit Added this: There were times that I just rode the bike on the sidewalks.... (in Japan and Asia = you do not even own your shadow on the road when riding) and the JPs would just wave me past.....

    Bounced off of a few cars on US 101 in the past several years - US drivers suck and are amatures (or it could be all the illegal drivers too....................... not saying what my real opinion is).

    Regardless, you all be safe out there!

    This is for fun.

    Wow...looked like the motorcyclist was at fault in about 98 of those crashes... You must have been a much better rider!

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    That pretty much says it, right there. Many don't have enough skills or intelligence to be "out there" with such a tool ... the world over.

    You could probably title this.

    I HATED Japan...... the most polite and rudest place I'd ever been. I'm certin ten years of my life are gone due to the stress of riding around that country with my shipmates..... and on nuthin' nowhere NEAR a hog either.

    Only place worse was south Korea..... or Phily, during Friday rush hour, just after it started snowing.

    I rode motorcycles in Japan in the early sixties. I guess you would call it a mad house but it was alot of fun for a stupid kid like me. LOL

    I never saw any motorcycle crashes personally but those are pretty awesome.

    I loved living in Japan! Nice people and fabulous culture. I lived at Kadena AFB from 1974-75 then Yokota AFB from 75-77.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
