    Dahon Anti Aircraft

    Transitioned from Okinawa Japan today to Ie Shima Japan, a small island just off the northwest coast. Over here working for a while. Got my MuP8 out today and took a ride around the perimeter of the island, stopped at a local festival and then just cruised and took photos. Windy as all get out but beautiful.

    Will be bike commuting as much as humanly possible as well.

    Couple of pics from today.

    The friendly Japanese show their support for folding bicycles.
    2000 Montague CX, I do not recommend it, but still ride it.
    Strida 3, I recommend it for rides < 10mi wo steep hills.
    2006 Rowbike 720 Sport, I recommend it as an exercise bike.
    1996 Birdy, Recommend.
    Wieleder CARiBIKE (folding), decent frame.

    Hmmm, looks like a ZSU-2 but it must be Asian.
    Don't those signs say "Yankee go home!" ?

    It is a Japanese AA gun. I have no idea the designation but I'll look soon and see if there is a data plate on it. If memory serves I remember seeing one on there before. It's walking distance from my hotel just in what appears to be someone's yard or parking area.

    I should have turned the Dahon the other direction and maybe the curves and angles would have matched up better.

    I'm pretty sure that photo is from the demonstrations to close MCAS Futenma in Okinawa on Sunday. The theme color was yellow so I'm guessing that's where the photo is from.
