Finally almost a year since we begun Carlos' rebuild project, we're heading out for a weekend's riding on some of the best road we know.

Just in time for the trip, Carlos' new Baby Face rearsets arrived, so I fitted them.

Now 3am. We leave at 8.00. Will be shooting pics over the weekend, but will upload from our phones over the trip and better quality pics after we return on Sunday. This is gonna be awesome!

"SUBSCRIBED"

And remember if you encounter any tunnels ride side by side and enjoy the sound

We have a highway tunnel here and I rode thru with 2 RC's and a VTX 1800 in the mix many years ago and still get goosebumps

The last time I did a Sakura tour with other bikes around Fuji we ride through some amazing cherry blossoms. Hoping to see same. No doubt there will be some traffic but nothing that cannot be passed. Cloudy outsideClick image for larger version

This is the view from Carlos' family apartment. Once the sun is fully up it'll get brighter.

Time to wake Carlos up... And the neighbourhood! !

I wanna hear these bikes thunder in the car park below!
