Shinichi Ito in MotoGP

Honda will have a special rider at Motegi

He is the rider for Keihin, which is who I work for......nice to see him get a seat.

How did he do? I know that name from some of the racing videos you guys have posted and I checked out your wiki link.

Looks like his knee is doubling as a weed whacker...

he came in 13th, which was last of the remaining bikes at the end of the race.

Great rider. Was nice to see Akiyoshi out there too.

That is typical unless he is on the Keihin ride in the Japan only circuit. I get the updated from the Keihin news letter.

I have autographed pictures and Keihin Kohara swag from when he won his last championship.

His preferred tool is the 1000RR, he rides the hell out of it. Now he is mostly a test rider for Honda, which I know most would probably give their left nut to do.

Akiyoshi brings back some memroies for sure....

I thought we were all sort of 'test riders' for Honda!

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

Sure we are, except they don't listen to most of us....if they did we'd have another V powered Duc hunter.
