Not by choice, I've suddenly became a bachelor. On April 4th of this year, my dear wife Patti unexpectedly passed away after 40 terrific years of happy matrimony. As strange as it may sound, I got a sign from her that it was time for me to move on with my life during the tour.

Soooo, during the 2 months touring through Japan, I cast a drag line out to see what I could pull in. I was like a kid in a candy store and had to affix my drool cup under my chin since I encountered so many pretty women. Hey, I may be getting old, but I'm not dead yet!

Here are a few pics of gals that got caught in my net:

OK, enough dreaming. Back to reality!

This is the last entry into the Japan section of the blog. I hope you enjoyed the tour as much as I did. This truly was a trip of a lifetime and one of the best tours, bike or not, that I have done.

Thanks Jay and Andrew for organizing and leading this incredible journey. And thanks Herb and Kory for being such fun and supportive touring companions.

SAYONARA!! And Happy Trails!
