Moto Corse Luxury Touring 2012

Been a while since I had a ride to report about.....

Went on the fourth installment of Moto Corse Luxury Touring..... Kyushu touring for the weekend. They ship out our gear and bikes and we meet them at the airport for some riding around....

2009

2010

2011


Arrive in Kitakyushu airport after my first StarFlyer flight. Quite a nice airline actually!



Nothing like changing in a parking lot.... lol....






We headed straight out for SPA circuit in Kyushu. Small circuit, a bit under 2km, but quite nice, good enough. Certainly not Autopolis as before but enjoyable. And the weather was frickin' awesome!






Tried these gloves for the first time, Knox Handroids.



Photo dude was there, should be more pics at some point, got this for now.

After lunch we went to the north of Oita, to Taketazu port. (竹田津港). There we met the parents of the late "Captain" Taketazu, from Rider's Club. He was killed a couple years ago in a photo shoot around Osaka. He was with us the first couple of tours. We went up to the family grave site to pay our respects, was nice to go there this time.

Colin, that looks like an amazing adventure! Missed you at Bub IV. How are you liking those gloves?

Keep your words soft and sweet, for someday you shall eat them....

Gloves: Well, they are OK. On the track probably better than on the street, at least for me.

Comfortable enough, as the leathers are a tad long, that starts to 'feel' around the wrists. Not the end of the world. The big thing on the street for me is that the wrist protection is quite bulky and on the F4 tank I find myself hitting it when I'm maneuvering around, mostly low speed type stuff, but when approaching steering lock I hit the tank. No issue on the track with that. but a bit irritating.

Not a bad glove tho. Looks cool, in that futuristic sort of way. I prefer other gloves, it won't get a ton of use from me.....

oh yeah, and bub 4, well, was a busy year for me, spent a fair amount of time out of the country, even coming back after some weeks out the first thing I did was get on a plane for this trip. Kind of tired of airports, to be honest.

anyway, sometime, will get back there....
