Tokyo night!

I am just having a home party at a friends house in Shinagawa, and the
apartment is on the 19th. Floor... I don't know if you get the view on
this picture? But it is a real cool place!!!

It was such a nice day yesterday

But then again today it gets cold and reminds me of the long winter
season... I was riding my bike wearing just a tshirt yesterday, and
today it started raining... Well I guess you can't have it all, I am
spending my days training, teaching and studying lately! My partner
and I are in the process of setting up a small Internet Buisness to
help people outside of Japan to buy local goodies. So I need to know
more about the inside of what is going on in that part of the cyber
space world...

Yonaguni

My trip to Yonaguni has ended and as I sit here in the airplane
looking at the pictures, I realize how important it is to truly live a
little bit everyday. I have spent the last 20years trying to get as
strong as I could, and during those years I hardly had time for
anything but my training. But since I had my hip replaced last year I
have decided to start some of my old hobbies again. Building bicycles
was the first, then came the fishing, snorkeling and hopefully next
year I can take up snowboarding!

与那国の釣りは終わりました、そして今飛行機の中で写真を見てました
ら。毎日少し生きる大切さを改めて感じました。僕は今回本当にのんびり
が出来て良かったです。船によってから一人で島のたんけんをしました
し、スノーケリングを何時間も魚の気分になりました。ホテルプールサイ
ドバーでジントニックを飲みながら夕日を見たり。。。今年はいろんな趣
味を持つようになりたい、今まで格闘技しかしなかったので今年から僕が
大好きな自転車作りやスノーケリング、釣り、バイクレースそして、出来
たら来年はスノーボードをまだやりたいです。。。

This is one expensive sake!!!

This bottle of Yonaguni sake costs 50.000yen which is about 500U$ !!!
It was made 20 years ago and has an alcohol % of 60 proof! It tastes
like horse kicking you in the ass!!! LOL

与那国でしか手に入らない60%のあわもりです!一口だけで体が
あったかくなる。。。

Yonaguni

I have been here for two days now looking fo the great Marlin! The
island is the most west point of japan. And a famous spot for fishing
Marlin. Unfortunately it tool me only 15 min. Before I started feeding
the fish with my breakfast... After that I spent the rest of the trip
curled up like a ball at the bottom of the ship! So the second day
here I decided to take a ride around the island and find some nice
snorkeling spots, but the weather was not much for that so I ended up
in some jungle instead...

I finally finished my bike

I think it came out pretty cool! It was really fun to build a bike
again after all these years, and now I can enjoy riding it too...

自転車は仕上がりました!本当に気持ちいいです。20年ぶりに作り
ましたのでかなり楽しかったです、しかもこれからは乗れます!!!

Dragons are playing the Giants!

New/old bicycle!!!?

I used to ride something like this 20 years ago!!! I know it sounds
out of this world to say something like that, but yes I used to ride
something like this 20years ago. And lately with my hip I have been
wanting to get something like this to restore and then spen some time
riding it! it is good for my health and a real old cool hobby I used
to have when I was a kid! This bicycle already looks different, but I
thought I would show you the before and after!

最近自転車を作っている!昔日本に来る前にこんな感じな自転車にのってたけ
ど?日本に来てから全く作ってないです、乗っているのはバイクか車。だけど今
年は運動にはまってて、自転車も欲しいな〜、と思っていたらネットでこれが出
た!すぐ買って、早速パーツを探し回ってて!今は半分ぐらい出来上がったけ
ど、まだ見せないです!しかし、本当に楽しくってしょうがないです!

Vanquish Custom Paint

I just dropped off my bike at my friend Teruya's shop Vanguish! He is
having an old friend in town Mr. Steve Martinez, whom some of you
might remember from some years back when he pinstriped my Harley! The
work these two guys get done together is awesome, when they talk about
what they are going to do their faces light up like kids in a candy
store. I have the biggest respect for the two of them and just can't
wait to see the bike when they are done with it!

Finally it warms up!

I can't believe how warm or rather hot it is today!!! It was almost
freezing last night and now... Well I guess the picture says it all!

やっとはれました!本当に今日は熱いです!これから群馬県に行くのにバイクで
行きたかったな〜

The weather is bad! But...

The weather might be bad but the Sakura trees are still pretty! This
is the view from my living room, and if the sun was shining it would
be so beautiful. But like on a day like today it just gives you hope
that Spring is truly just around the corner and after that Summer! I
am going to into shape for summer and run like the wind in the park.
It is going to feel great...

今日はやっぱり寒いです!桜はキレイに見えるけどはれてればもっとキレ
イに見えるけど、今日見たいな一日だと早く春が来て欲しい感じがしま
す。今年の冬はしぶといって言うか?粘り強いです!夏までに体はいい
シェイプにして公園で走りたいです。。。
