First Tokyo ride

Post by Mersontheperson » Tue Jun 20, 2017 4:27 am

So I collected my little cub at 10:30 this morning, chatted to the owner in English while he talked to me in Japanese and showed me around the bike.
I gave him the number plates to affix, and took some photos of the bikes in his shop

He insisted that I ride around the block as he observed. Then after mandatory photo session of me by the bike, we parted our merry ways.

Beautiful sunny day for a ride and just followed my nose towards the Centre on Tokyo. I topped up with fuel at an attended station (3.25 l for 3 pounds), then managed to reach 50 Kmh over the bridge over the Arakawa river, there was a bit more left in the old girl too I reckon.

I arrived at Tokyo station around 30 or 40 minutes later

Looking forward to my journey home after work

They don't make FI 90s, only 50s and 110s. The carbed 90 lasted until 2012 in Japan though since it was a fairly clean motor though since I believe it had a catalyst and emission controlled carb.
