East Japan (Near Mt. Fuji)
May 1st, 2005
|I was lucky enough to get some free time and headed out to another one of those NSR meetings here in Japan. This particular meeting was located in Gotemba, Japan which is at the base of Mount Fuji. It was organized by a couple of friends of mine. I drove up with a friend the day before and we both crashed at his friends parents cottage where some other NSR friends showed up and we had a big party. Next morning, feeling a bit sleepy and slightly hung over we all headed out to meet up with the rest of the NSR riders who were coming in from all parts of Japan. The weather was pretty good with nice clear skies. Little by little the NSR's started showing up and at one time we had nearly 60 NSR 250 bikes there along with other bikes and NSR owners who showed up in their cars or trucks. Below are some pictures from the day. Unfortunately I could not get pictures of all of the bikes as some people would show up when others were leaving. 42 bikes are pictured below in the line up, in total we had close to 60 NSR bikes there. It was a fun day and I made some new friends and also had a great time. Sadly, the weather turned bad on the way home and I got soaked when it rained quite heavily but made it home safe. Another great NSR meeting. If you are ever in Japan when these events are held you should definitely show up and check them out.|

Some more pictures before we lined up the NSR bikes for the cameras.
