Fukui.Sunday on the skywave

On Sunday I took off on the skywave for another trip along the Japan sea.The original plan was to head down to the onsen town of Katsura in Wakayama prefecture on the Pacific ocean.Unfortunately the rain bucketed down,forcing me to make a detour to the Japan sea in serach of the good weather.

This time Fukui prefecture was the goal.On the map you can see it clearly posted.Its only about 200 Kms from Osaka.Convinient for a day trip.



Tomb stones in the quiet rural village of Kaminaka about 20km inland from the coast



Some wax dudes going about their local duties in Kaminaka



Kaminaka.Not quite touristy.More local.A real portrait of rural Japanese life



Yeah.Real slow



The busy streets of Kaminaka on a Sunday



The town office.



The local pub? Perhaps?



Gateway to the local temple



A view of the village from higher ground.The surrounding mountains really tipify your typical Japanese rural setting



The local temple



Its customary to wash your hands before entering any temple or Shrine.here is a more unique example of how its done



The back alleys are pretty dangerous in Kaminaka



What is all this S??T doing out infrom of this guys house?



These two were out there.They were speaking a dilect of Japanese ive never herd of.They sounded more like Beaker and that other puppet scientist from the Muppet Show.



A couple of locals going about some Sunday work



My bike is in the foreground.Sexy and black.But the true beast of pleasure is that Honda Goldwing behind it.Its the only bike I would turely give up my skywave for.



I love my skywave but the Goldwing is a cut above.Look at it.Its HUGE!!!!!!!!!



Ohhh my god.One day I will own that bike.One day..........



Time to leave the inland areas of Fukui and hit the coast.The picture speak from themselfs.



So nice.Rice terraces with one of the many bays along the Fukui Japan sea coastline in the distance



Just magic



"Take me down to the sunset grill" Is this Japan?



Fisherman enjoying the nice day.I have to learn to hold that camera straight



The main beach in the city of Tsuruga.



Tsuruga city.The second largest in Fukui prefecture.Not my picture.



Once again I head inland.Some traditional thatch roof houses.



Traditional living with a bit a electricity thrown in for good measure.



400cc of pleasure.This is the baby who takes me to these places.The Suzuki Skywave(Burgman in other countries)



Last picture.Not Fukui.But Otsu from the expressway at sunset.Capital city of Shiga.Only 5 kms from Kyoto.

lovely photos as usual

to be honest I much prefer your skywave to that goldwing

how is the new 400cc model pulling even better than the last model

If I had to choose in those photos I would go for your skywave because it looks so modern and more urban

the goldwing is too american and tacky

bet your skywave makes a nicer sound than the goldwing bubbleing and couching loudly

stick with the ultimate bike....


Looks slick in black too

the skywave

Hahahahah.Funny you said that.Both bikes have a nice humming sound.The 400cc model is enough power and preforms much better in 100km/h to 150 range.The old 250 struggled a bit over 110km/h

I like both.But when it comes to Comfort I will always go the big scooters.When you ride one all day and get off.It feels like you have been sitting on a sofa all day.

The skywave and other big scooters look very modern and stremelined.For that reason also,they appeal to me

When you ask me what you see in the those big scooters.Just look at it.It is one of the sexiest machines ive ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After a 12 years, I wanted to see the old pictures, but sadly Photobucket's new pricing policy has effectively deleted all my old posts.
