Why the blog, aren't there enough already? I am American, my girlfriend is Japanese. We both speak some of the others language (her far better than I) but sometime we have disagreements caused by language. Also, she want's to know my 'gaijin' opinion on matters because it's not normal for her to think like me.
Main posts here will be about travel but mainly about my adventures with motorcycles in Japan and the overall love of motorcycles. When I moved here in September 2010, I thought I'd be on a bike quickly. Well, through getting a license, buying the bike, fixing the import issues....its been quite a challenge. All I have left (I think) is to get "high gas" or smog check and finish the actual Shaken. We'll see how it pans out. Here is the bike in question and the import document which Maiko san used her awesome negotiation skills to finagle with the Yokohama customs house yesterday. Now that I have this little piece of paper I am unstoppable!
