Read through the entire thread... simply inspiring. I'd love to make a trip like this on a bike. What do you think of Japan so far? I loved it there. I was there for about 3 weeks (Yokosuka/ Sasebo), and was surfing pretty much the entire time (was Typhoon season) but was really surprised at how respectful of a people they are. Keep to themselves, very quiet... us Americans were loud bafoons to them I bet. In my "surf" trips utilizing their amazing public transportation, we made it to the Chiba peninsula, up North a little from there. On another longer trip went south to Totado Beach, which was a beautiful area. Usuaully not a huge fan of big cities, but Tokyo is a trip.

What Island here in Hawaii are you staying at? I'm sure you'll be busy with your family but if you have some down time I'd love to meet up for a beer or two. Once my car is sold, I'll finally have a few bikes in my garage again. On waiting list for 2014 690 Enduro R, and am also planning on picking up a 250sx. There is an awesome motocross track 20 minutes from my house on the North Shore, with miles and miles of fun trails too! Would be cool to have a bike in time here for you to keep in riding shape.

Personally I would NEVER park my bike anywhere near O'Connell Street / Quays. It's a kip. If you're coming to Ireland then make an announcement here, irishbikerforum.com, UKgser.com. You'll be seen right and much less likely that this shite will happen to you.

Don't use a space

Make sure that you enter rohan {underscore} fel @hotmail.com
rohan_fel @hotmail.com. It worked fine for me.

I discovered Noah's report about three weeks ago and am finally caught up. Wow. Great photography and spirit. Thanks for bringing us along!

I have seriously enjoyed every bit of my time reading this one. Its great to see someone young and in a relatively similar profession doing what you are doing. It gives me hope that one day I will be able to do something similar. I am 26 with a degree in mechanical engineering. (electricity scares me, I cant see it and it can kill me)

As a east coast snowboarder I must admit that I was extremely jealous of the fresh pow shots you were posting from Georgia. All we get here is the man made crunchy shit that kills your edges and hurts like a sum-bitch when your face meets it.

Enjoy your travels and I look forward to more of your posts. You have made reference to the Appalachian mountains a time or two. When you come back to the states and find yourself in the NC/TN mountains, shoot me a message. They are practically my back yard.

Ride safe and enjoy!

Just had breakfast with RoninMoto on his last day in Japan. The 690 is on a ship to Laem Chabang and Noah is off to Korea before Thailand.

Safe travels!

Yeah, Tokyo is pretty nuts. But so was Osaka and Kyoto. As far as Hawaii goes, I'll be on the big island.. where there aren't to many people. Trying to hook up a moto there if anyone has a bike or friends with a bike

I'm surprised no one commented either. It was such an artful shot.

Don't get me wrong. Electricity scares me also. But I can "see" it and understand it. Good luck with the ME stuff. Maybe I'll be reading your RR in a few years

Yup. It was great. Thanks for everything Gen. Especially the phone. I couldn't have gotten the shipping set up or gotten those dates if I didn't have a phone

I'll cross post on there and ask them too help you out. I have a friend storing my ktm 300 on Oahu if you end up over there. You're welcome to use it. It needs to be ridden since I won't be there until May. I have good friends there that will help you with transport and will even take you riding.

Guys on Maui are just starting a moto rental business, I believe this is it:
http://www.mauimotoadventures.com/

They got a bunch of KLRs and do guided tours, I picked all this up on
Accidental Broadcast's Youtube channel (#1 moto vloger in my book).

I'd go there!
Those guys are nuts!
