    And then there were two.... Dropped the Bavarian Princess off at Beemer Uber Alles in Manassas. George on the left and Wes on the right. Now the burden to sell that beast is with them.

    Red Peril sold to CARMAX yesterday. For the first time since I was 16 I don't own a car. I checked the lemon lot on base in Yokosuka and all they have listed at the moment are big old family hauler vans. Yesterday being the USMC Birthday, of course we had a celebration. Being the lowest ranked officer amongst the former Marines and having advanced expertise in sweets and pastries , I was tasked with procuring the cake.

    Also had to take care of the "arsenal" that I keep just in case some jackwad clears leather.... Can't take these with me so Uncle Sam will store for me while I'm out of the country. Made the inventory, tagged each piece and took pictures of every one. Sold about 10 or so pieces in the last month or so just to thin the herd a bit. This is what's left.

    Enjoy your travels. Did a port call there a few years ago. Yokusuka Chuo is very nice during the day and becomes "The Honch" at night. Tokyo is not far and has a few cool Expat Hangouts. Three years will give you enough time to really explore the place.

    Good Luck with driving/riding over there - very different driving culture...but they should be able to help you make the transition.

    If you happen to see and XR400 E-start, buy it and import it. Hard to make one over here. The 400 will drag your butt all over the woods. BTDT.

    I love it when it is just a hole in the floor and the tile is sloped so all the shit runs down hill.

    I took two semesters of Japanese. At the end of the second semester the instructor comes up to me an says "Nowakson, (he paused, looking for the right way to say the rest), your speak with a Texas accent, when you talk to the Japanese start with a simple courtesy statement. Then switch to Engrish. They already think you are John Wayne, use that. Please don't try to communicate with them, your accent is bad!" By this point I am smiling and laughing inside. My coworker is laughing so hard he is crying.

    Suddenly everyone is a commode-ian.....

    Got one KLR almost prepped for stoarage. Fresh oil change, drained the antifreeze, removde the battery. Just need to give her another good wash, drain the carb and fog the tank.

    What could possibly go wrong in 5 years of storage....
