Hi there, from Yokohama, Japan!

"Eddie spoke up in his head, Eddie with his wise-ass Brooklyn accent in full flower.
Yeah, and if fish had bicycles, every fxxxin river'd be the Tour de France."

Hi, I'm newby from Yokohama, Japan.
I started cycling 1975.
But I'm off from cycling past 10 years, because I was fed up with central Tokyo's heavy traffic and my parents needed care and help.
2 years ago, I moved to Yokohama and started cycling again.

It's still fun and nice to ride a road bike.

Eddy Merckx is my cycling hero since I was a high school kid.
I love Molteni Eddy Merckx, Italian road bikes, and, Japanís pride, Koga-Miyata.
Another my favorite is silver and anodized parts, Dura Ace 7700 and 25th anniversary set in particular.

Your name suggests you like Mozart.
My favorite Mozart is Requiem, his swan song.
The beginning, Introitus, is overwhelming.

Wow!
Hi, stewartt1982!

I find verry happy surprising word, J-A-P-A-N.
And, Fussa.
It's a nice place to cycle around Okutama area, and Okumusashi area in Saitama.
When I lived in Tokyo, I cycled there countless times.
A favorite place is Tamako reservoir, and the road around there.
