Every time I take the bike out of Tokyo, a few things become very obvious. The first is that no matter what time of day, all the logical, well throught our road systems in Tokyo have yet to find a way to reduce the horrid amount of Traffic. The second is that once you get into some nice country like Ibaraki you realize that Japan is soo beautiful and more wide open than you had imagined, in its own way of course. I guess just about the only good looking thing in all of Tokyo is the women....past that you can have the concrete jungle. Leave this country boy in Ibakari.
