    I fixed them right way... I accidentally uploaded the pics to the wrong folder in photobucket. I moved them and fixed the links.... right about the time you posted.

    With the drop bars it almost looks like a LHT.

    Seriously ... the Hiroshima bomb was actually planned to hit Kyoto but one of the decissionmakers went on a honeymoon to Kyoto years before and voted against because he felt the city was too beautifull to destroy.

    Thanks! The bag is actually Topeak's MTX TrunkBag EX, without the drop-down panniers. What you see in the pic is the back of my Arkel Commuter pannier. The Commuter handles the majority of my cargo needs; I bought the trunk bag to carry my lunch. Since I already had an MTX rack, it only made sense to buy an MTX bag. Topeak's proprietary "QuickTrack" design is an absolute delight, and it makes mounting/removing the bag painless.

    The light is a Cateye HL-EL530. It's a great little unit for anyone who wants a regular battery-powered (4 AAs) light. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who regularly travels down dark roads/trails, but on city streets it outlines the shadows cast by potholes and manhole covers that aren't visible under the streetlights. It only has a steady "on" setting, but I have my PB Blaze 1W blinky for backup. Eventually I plan to upgrade to a dynohub to power a headlight/taillight combo, but for now the new headlight adds that extra measure of security.

    I also heard that because Kyoto has over three thousand Temples and Shrines, an enormous amount of cultural artifacts plus the Imperial Palace, dropping "the" bomb and destroying this city would have brought about extremely negative reactions from around the world.

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    I'm embarrassed to post my "kit". On a "long ride" I carry 5 bandaids, 5 gauze pads, a roll of tape for the gauze pads, 5 alcohol pads (not for sucking on) a pump, levers and a tube.
    Oh and 120 yen for the coffee vending machine.

    Holy cow...

    How much of what are you carrying? I know randoneurs who travel with less.
    Certainly hope you don't come across any must haves while you're out.

    In my younger days, when I'd ride everywhere, across two counties, going to college and crashing at friends' houses, I used full panniers.
    Evenly dispersed through out was, a full change of clothes, toiletries, snacks, "small" first aid kit, pump, tubes and flat stuffs and school supplies (no puter back then).

    Sorry but, I just think you are over packed.
    "change is the only constant"

    I don't feel it's THAT much.
    It looks like a lot because it's been unpacked but it's all light and can be packed in a small space I'm sure.

    I've been backpacking across Europe and Africa for years when I was younger and I carried 22 kilo's ... that seems a lot but that was everything I had back then: tent, sleeping bag, thermarest, full kitchen with coleman fuelstove and 3 pots and even spices and everything, clothes, shoes, medkit, etc...
    If I would unpack my backpack people would also say: damn that's a LOT of stuff ... then I would pack it and it would all fit in this pretty lean oldstyle backpack with aluminum frame and people would be surprised at how small and light it all was

    Just sayin' ...

    I rode yesterday without a back pack, rear rack or even a small trailer. Carried on the bike; pump, patch kit, multi-tool and tire levers, cotton rag, empty water bottle. In a fanny pack, two phones, (one for data transmissions, one for voice), keys. Forgot to bring; wallet, bike lock, water.

    I had enough room in my pockets for the phones and keys, but I needed the fanny pack to hold my cargo shorts closed. The shorts seem to have shrunk since the last time I rode and the snap wouldn't stay snapped!

    I have been eating well during my convalescence.
