Big! Go West

先週末は 九州小倉で開催された10th FTWへ参加しました。
今回が最後の開催となるとの事だったのでBikeで行ってきました。
当初、横浜~小倉 (1,000km/625miles) 全行程を走り切るつもりでしたが日が近づくと
段々 気も変わり横浜~大阪南港間 約500km/310milesを自走し、南港~門司はフェリーを利用しました。
南港到着前、SEMBAさんにお邪魔させて頂きショップを見せて頂きました。
驚愕のラインアップでした。

Last week we participated in 10th FTW that was held at Kokura in Kyushu.
This time was the last opening, so we went with a Bike.
First time we plan to ride through Yokohama to Kokura(1,000km/625miles). However as the day get closer we change our mind and ride our bike from Yokohama to Osakananko for about 500km/310miles and used ferry from Nanko to Moji.
Before arriving at Nanko, we went to see SEMBA Motors.
It was surprising line up.

出発は朝6時

Start is from 6 in the morning.

海老名SAで給油し、次の給油地、足柄を目指します。

岡崎SAで偶然、FTWを目指す横浜のSelctedさん御一行と遭遇。

At Okazaki SA we happen to meet Mr. Nishioka from Selected, Yokohama and his team, aiming for FTW.

大阪SEMBAさんに到着したの午後3:30位、横浜を出て9時間以上が過ぎていました。
Fuel Tankが小さいので給油の為、ほぼ全てのSAに止まっていたので時間が掛かりました。

When we arrive at SEMBA, Osaka it was about 3:30p.m, and more than 9 hour has passed after we left from Yokohama. It took time because we were stopping at almost every SA for filling because the Fuel Tank was small.

SEMBA Motorsの岡田社長&弟様に "Sodateyou" キャンペーンにご協力頂きました。

Mr. Okada and his young brother of SEMBA Motors supported our “Sodateyou” campaign.

瀬戸内海の朝

下船終了。搬入まで時間があるので山口県の角島へ行こうと言う事なりました。
往復130km/80milesくらい。

Finish disembarking from a ferry. There was still time before carrying in so, we plan to go to Tsunoshima in Yamaguchi. About 130km/80miles round trip.

言い出したの良いけど、130kmしかも高速無しと聞いて落ち込み気味。

It was okay to suggest but, feeling bit depressed after hearing 130km round trip without highway.

関門橋を渡り山口県角島へ。

延々とJR山口線に沿って走ります。

途中、先行で角島へ行ったSelectedさんとすれ違いました。

On the way, we passed Mr. Nishioka, “Selected Custom Motorcycle” in Yokohama and his team that went ahead.

この先が角島、この道が有名だそうです。
日本のキーウエストの様な感じです。

Just ahead is Tsunoshima and this road is said to be popular.
Seem to be Japan’s Key West.

31st SCN and 2nd Bangkok Hot Rod Custom Show 2017

31st SCN 無事終了です。
雨も降らず また事故も無く そして皆さんの笑顔が見れて嬉しかったです。
ゆっくりと時間が流れていくイベントに育って来ました。
ありがとうございます。
来年までは同じ場所で開催が可能と聞いていますが
ま、その時が来るまでは断定できません。
同じ週末タイ、バンコクでは2回目となる Bangkok Hot Rod Custom Show が開催されていました。

The 31st SCN finished without any issues. I am happy to say that it didn’t rain, there were no accidents reported and I got to see everybody with big smiles. It’s nice to see this event has evolved into a slow laid back day. Thank you very much.
Although we have heard that we can use the same place next year, we’ll wait until then to confirm. Rumors are circulating about construction there for the Olympics in 2020.
During the same weekend as SCN, it was the 2nd Bangkok Hot Rod Custom Show held in Bangkok, Thailand.

 

タイから羽田に到着、タクシーで会場に向かうと偶然にもSCNヘ向かう方々が。。

I arrived at Haneda Int’l Airport from Thailand and by chance, I saw a couple cars heading for SCN while I took a taxi to the event area in Odaiba, Tokyo.

会場オープンは12時 終わりが23時。 スタート時間が全く違うのです。
開演早々来場者もまばらな中 ライドインかと思ったら ライドインのリハーサルでした。
夕方になると次第い人が増えて来るのはやはち日中が暑すぎるからでしょうか?
ライドインは4時頃に開催されました。

The event opens at 12pm and goes until 11pm. The start time is completely different there.
As soon as the event began, there were hardly any people and what I thought was the “Ride In” was just a rehearsal. As afternoon set in, people began to arrive which it could be because it’s too hot?
The actual “Ride In” was around 4pm.
