I debated long and hard whether to throw down the hard-earned cash on this beast. Then I twisted the throttle. The next stop was the bank.


The initial debate stemmed from my style of riding. I do a lot of touring, and the Honda CB1000 is a suitable match for that. The 250kg (dry) weight makes for a smooth highway experience. Harley riders will attest; a tank of a machine soaks up the minor imperfections of your average road. A 150kg KTM supermoto, on the other hand . . . this is gonna hurt.


But fuck it, this is pure adrenaline. A highly-tuned, wheelie-poppin' bike that may get me into more trouble with the law. Bright orange isn't the most subtle of color schemes.


Most of my motorcycle riding friends are pro this bike, though they say it is best as an addition to your stable. A Yamaha FJR for touring, something for the track, and a supermoto for causing trouble around town. Pending a couple promotions on that one . . .


Stay safe!

January 2012

Dear blog, sorry I've been so distant these past few months. I told you that my life in Japan had become a bit normal, un-postworthy, and the late nights out were spent with a glass of shochu in my hand alongside friends. You have no interest such day-to-day trivial matters. And thus I let you be.

But it's time to confess. I've been seeing someone else.

Not just seeing. No, it's more. I've been uploading almost daily. I've even uploaded to you mere minutes after uploading to my new obsession.

Ramen Adventures - and now you know.

What? You're cool with that? Really? You even admit to being approached by strangers who wanted to guest blog on you?

2012 is going to be a good year.
