Generally I try and make it to the Hattoji international villa at least once a year,but for the past two years I’ve been too busy wrapped up in my own hello world unable to take the timeout and ride my motorbike (teeny tiny scooter) to this beautiful destination.
This year I jumped at the opportunity to stay there and join friends from the Kansai Riders group.
1 year and 11 months 32,000km
This is only the second time I have taken her to the mainland for a tour and I must say for sub 500km tours I really believe this is perfect bike for Japan.
I have always wondered how my motorbike would handle the Tsurugi Super Rindo. The Kawasaki TR250 comes stock with caramel block tires but since I chewed through my last set within 10 months I decided on something more suited for the my sometimes casual commute to work and settled on these.
Although the Tsurugi Super Rindo (Rindo means forest road, btw) has the word super hacked in there, it really isn’t an extremely hard ride and if you weren’t planing on racing through it you could do it on a street bike.
I decided to do the first half and then settled on the local roads
