Japan: Ride out - Hakone Turnpike and Izu Skyline

Well, not sure if this qualifies for Routes, so i'll just put it here....

Went out down the Tomei, up the Hakone Turnpike, attempting to replicate my Mt. Fuji shot!

No snow, and some clouds, but you can still make it out.....


Popular place to go out for bikers.....





Here I am, trying to get the same shot.....







Getting some color in the Ti midpipe!

It's fine for a route. That blue TI midpipe is looking really nice!

I need a F4 fuji photo as my desktop wallpaper

I don't know how long I had your Brutale photo on my computer for..

well, going out tomorrow on the F4, though I'm not sure where.

might get some Fuji, though you might have to wait till spring when it's clearer and has some snow!

OK folks, Sunday's a new day. Same route for the most part, F4 this time.

Tomei -> Exit Hadano Nakai
Make a right on whatever that road is at the exit. Follow this all the way down to the coast.
Take the Seisho bypass road (sp?) towards Hakone.
Hakone Turnpike up to the top (then pics)
Head off on the Izu skyline, go up and down till you are out of gas.
Repeat.
Then return home on the Odawara Atsugi road to avoid local traffic.


========================


Ebina Service Area on the Tomei Expressway. As you might expect, pretty jammed with biker types. Not too too crowded yet as it was still early (7a.m.)





Here's an angle you don't often see (from me anyway)....





OK Alvin, this is the best I could get today....bit hazy out there....

Yup, I'll get those posted soon (later tonight). Hopefully my luck with zip uploading goes better than usual! Else, I'll be sending you a PM again!

Yes, what is that? Caught my eye as well, thought it was just a really blue sky at first...Is it Iridium? Plutonium? Unobtanium?

Please expound...

Nice report and awesome photos...That paint scheme is dreamy!!!
