Smile HS in Hokkaido

Hello guys,

I just came back from 12 days trip on Hokkaido-Northeren large island with full of nature. I met foxes and deers on the road.

It was 2800km/1750mile trip. My HS worked well without single malfanction.
The flexible engine covers 60-160km/h in 6th gear.

In heavy rain, DTC worked well in Urban mode.
I rode on some dirt, it worked well too.

I will show the URL of a blog which shows some of my photos.

Regards,

Ride safe

HiroTokyo

Hiro, I look forward to seeing your photos. Japan is a beautiful country.

I have found that 6th gear covered up to 190km/hr, but there was a strong headwind and I had the panniers on.

I brought sleeping bag to stay in riders' house.
In Hokkaido riders' house they offer just rooms to stay.
