    I'm back!!!!!

    I've been off the radar for a bit moving from Okinawa Japan to Mainland Japan. Hurt my back a little prior to leaving Oki and while it would heal back up nicely riding my bike would aggravate the injury.

    I have my Mu P8 stashed here but I got my workhorse my Speed P8 the other day in an express shipment.

    I've been using it for transportation and I did a 20k ride the other day to test my bike and all was well. Pulled a fairly long ride this morning and planning a much longer ride tomorrow.

    Taken at Kiko park at Iwakuni Japan. This guy is the famous Mushashi's rival although I can't think of his name right now.

    Two Samurai's in this photo. Folding bikes rock even more on mainland Japan than they do on Oki. Found a good LBS as well that the website handles Dahon as well. I haven't been yet but I'm going tomorrow. Hopefully they have Dahon's on site.

    Great photo. I am back in Yokohama and preparing to face the heat and get used to my recently acquired BF Tikit.

    Welcome back! I'm sorry to read about your back injury. My back is injured too but I found riding my bike and wearing heels helped. (Yeah, I'm just as shocked as you!)

    I think riding helped me because it strengthened my core and because I didn't have to sit up straight. Bent slightly to reach the handlebars helped because standing up straight was very painful. Also, the heels helped to put my back in a position that was actually more comfortable than flat footed. Odd, but it works!

    I hope your back heals up soon and you get back to riding that pretty folder.
    Ride what you like. Ride in what you like.
