C. we love you guys and your crews! see you again soon!
btw, we went to grab something to eat afterward on the way back and switched bikes. shinya took my XT, i took SR and sin5 took GPZ. and the GPZ stopped all of a sudden in downtown LA. so sin5 and shinya switched the bikes again and push started it but it stopped again in alhambra, this time couldn't push start it. so we left the GPZ at the gas station and came back with our van to pick it up. but still we can say we had a great night :)
when sin5 and i returned from an errand, i saw shinya, masking tape in his hand, gliding into the workshop. i clicked right away. yes, he put some color on the right side of the gas tank of my SR :) 筆者とsin5氏が用事から戻ると、マスキングテープを手にチャボの外にいた木村氏がス―――っと中に入って行くのが見えた。怪しい。かなり怪しい。チラッとSRを見たら・・・やっぱり！タンクにラインが入っている！
i told him i loved it and he said "well, i was kinda waiting to do the other side until you come back, just in case..." :D なんだか若々しくなったSR。色合いもいい感じでとても気に入りました、と伝えると安心して反対側に取り掛かる木村氏。
"shhhh!!! it's the same green that i put on my GPZ but this left over green also looks nice on her SR, right?"

Fumi came back to our workshop to pick some parts for his future flat track racer! he in this blur picture is trying out how it feels like to going fast and straight :)
Fumi from Sixth St. Specials in new york was here on the west coast and stopped by. yay!
ニューヨークのSixth St. SpecialsのFミ氏が西海岸に！そして、チャボに寄ってくださいました。
many of you may already know that Fumi is really into flat track racing and been racing his vintage triumph for quite a while. there are so many different kinds of motorcycle races out there but one thing that is common to all is that whether you are pro or amateur you are stretching yourself to go faster at that moment. at your own level, of course. and that's something shinya and Fumi could share instantly.
