    - Watchmen getting good now that it's bringing back the original characters. The writers have studied the source material (book, not film) meticulously. Lots of easter eggs. - First episode of Mandalorian was intriguing, happy that it's 40 minutes long and not the tedious stretched-out hour-long...

    As pretty as this temple is, it's actually not the main shrine You have to walk into the forest a few hundred meters, past a river... The path ends at Ama-no-Iwato, which means "Cave of the Sun Goddess". Hey, you mean the story is real?!? The path leading to the cave and the cave floor...

    Drama in the parking lot of the the Ama-no-Iwato shrine. There's a lot of mythology set in Takachiho. Although this angry dude looks like he's going to drop a rock on my head, he's actually one of the good guys. Legend has it that the Goddess of the Sun, Ameterasu-omikami, was once driven into...

    Updated from No Zens in Worrying We continue our ride southwards through the Miyazaki Prefecture, on the island of Kyushu. We love the mountains in Miyazaki! So scenic! 12% of the land in this prefecture is devoted to National Parks! Tokubetsuto Senmaida (rice terraces) in the background...

    No Harley Bikes here ..?

    Surprised to learn that it's actually her riding the bike. She had just gotten her motorcycle license and went straight from the test to the video shoot.

    Snow tire - size matters?

    Another vote for narrower tires. Going down a size to smaller diameter wheels is great for saving money since the rubber is cheaper, but if you want to cut through snow, narrower width "pizza cutter" tires are the way to go: more weight on a smaller contact patch.

    MM93 Behind the scenes MotoGP 2017. https://www.redbull.com/int-en/films/unseen Interesting commentary about team orders. The rest of us armchair punters are all up in arms about it, but if you're actually inside a racing team, it's a completely different story.

    Okay, the RideDOT.com doggy feeding session is over. Back to hit those mountain roads. Speaking of, they are beautiful in the background! Just outside of the town of Ogata, we stop because there are a lot of tour buses and cars pulling into a parking lot. So we stop as well to check out what...

    Another pitstop This time at some kind of mini-farm, they had horses, goats and many dogs. We saw a bag of sardines lying around, so we took a few fishies and fed them to the doggies Good thing Neda has no tankbag on this motorcycle, otherwise it'd be more than just sardines that she'd be...

    Why I'd buy another Honda

    Oil change every 10,000 kms. 250,000 kms later, zero engine problems.

    NEW 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and Fireblade SP Announced

    Honda's only leading in MotoGP because of MM93. RC213V is quite a handful that only Marquez seems able to ride. This is the bike that literally broke Lorenzo's back Second Honda is Crutchlow in 9th, Nakagami in 13th, and Lorenzo in 19th... Four Yamahas in the top ten.

    Is helmet theft/ vandalism a thing in Toronto?

    I had a brand-new Shoei stolen from my bike in Thornhill a few years back. It was on a helmet lock, but the thief cut the strap. Had to call my wife to bring me a spare helmet so I could ride home. Now, if I lock the helmet on the bike, I run a chain through the visor-hole.

    NEW 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and Fireblade SP Announced

    From a racing standpoint, it'll be interesting to see how they do next year in WSBK. They've been hogging the bottom half of the field for the past few seasons. Also, maybe Bautista at HRC will help as well.
