Motorcycle Stolen

Yeah, I've been silent on the blog for a bit. Downright ghost town status. I think I got in a blogging funk last year when my apartment in Japan was robbed. All that nonsense is here:

Anyways, it's time to use Japan Bash as another notice of the theft of yours truly's property. Rad!


I just got back from two weeks of children's summer camps out in West Japan. I have about five posts worth of interesting things to talk about, including more haikyo, crazy dance festivals in Shikoku, and ramen schools. But that will have to wait. The first thing I noticed upon arriving home wasn't the mailbox overflowing with bills, but that my new motorcycle was rather invisible.

I knocked on my landlord's door, and immediately contacted the cops. Asked around the apartment and the last confirmed sighting was August 9th at 10pm. I filed the report on August 14th at 8pm.

If you are in Japan, keep an eye out for this rather uncommon bike. The bright orange is hard to miss!

I made a post on my favorite Japanese English language motorcycle forum here, please take a minute to read it if you live in the greater Tokyo area:

Wish me luck!

That really sucks. But 'crime is low in Japan' (my ass).

:( Ugh the feeling of being robbed is the pits.

This is why I'm extra careful with my electric dirt bike, even if we live in a very safe area. You can never be too sure these days.

I'm scared about my motorcycle being robbed and of course, some of the things I put on the compartment. Good thing I had trax panniers installed several weeks ago.
