How has that tye-dye jersey not atomized?
Excellent video as usual and looking forward to seeing more of hokkaido in the following parts.
Time for a new saddle?

The shirt is actually "Sport Science" brand. Fast drying synthetic that feels like cotton. I had one for 10 years and it became so thin it was transparent. When they started shipping abroad I bought a few more. The tie-dye is probably a bit loud for most people but I'm a very quiet chap! The saddle is my second and final Brooks. The first started to sag after 3 years, This one is the "organically fed" leather. It is also now about 3 year old and looks like crap. I think they don't like rain and I will never buy another leather saddle.


Stay tuned. I've been editing this trip for months and the next part will be up very soon.

I really enjoy your videos, @waddo they are a big reason why I have a desire to tour in Japan now.
Thank you for the inspiration.
