    Me too! They're stuck in my iPhone as I managed to leave the connector cable at the last hotel! At Narita awaiting my flight back so will retrieve them on my return home.

    Then it's off to Japan Bike Rentals to pick up an F650GS:

    ... and depart on a three day circumnavigation of Mount Fuji. Despite poor weather shielding Mount Fuji and restricting photo ops, I'll let the pics I did take tell the story.
