Of all the most interesting discoveries on my adventure!
How did I end up sleeping at the museum?
Before I left Adelaide, I put the question out on the Horizons Unlimited website for any advice on routes to take in Japan. (where I met Hiroyuki and his wife!).. well I also got a message from Kim in Denmark who advised me of a Rider House in Yufuin along side a Motorcycle Museum.. they offer free accommodation to those on a bike, and I was up for free!! They say Rider Houses are more common in the north.. but even though I am south, I knew it was a place a wanted to check out and of coarse a motorcycle museum to boot!
Wow! Had no idea what an incredible and complete museum..!
Warning…. Heaps of photos to follow…
I remember sometimes when I would come home from school, I would polish Dad’s bike.. I used to get on it and move it around myself… pretty brave for a kid with how big and heavy it is..
Around the corner and I came across a World Adventurers bike — very cool!!
I don’t know his name, but I am impressed and inspired!
Hiroyuki has read my blog – good on ya Mate! – This is a friend of his, and forwarded his details!
I can’t read Japanese, but from what I could tell, this was 1977? That might be totally wrong.. but needless to say, it was a while ago..
(I wonder if my bike will end up in a museum someday.. ha!)
I will continue the blog on another page, as there is that much more!! Stay tuned!
