back from born free and Mr.Ouch! is already working on the #12 mezzanine! what a tough guy. again, he used to be a carpenter but he's a great custom motorcycle builder/mechanic and owner of the shop called M-style motorworks in japan. いやぁ～灼熱の下道でボンフリから戻ったと思ったら速攻で12番の中二階に取り掛かるOウチ氏、タフな女神さま♡ ちなみにここから見た人はOウチ氏が大工さんだと思うかもしれませんが、元大工なだけで本業はM-Style Motorworksですのであしからず。
W is back in work, too.
somehow sin5 has enslaved himself to service to W... なぜかWタナベ氏にこき使われるsin5氏。
meanwhile uncle shinya was busy repairing niimie's XS650 that sin5 tipped over at born free parking area.
shinya, W(mopar guy), Mr.Ouch!, shinya's nephew sin5 and i decided to take all of our stock bikes and head to born free. sin5 just got his motorcycle license right before he left japan and this will be his first time riding on the street. his uncle didn't tell him where we were going so he had no idea what born free was. hope we can get there all in one piece. さて、木村氏、Wタナベ氏、Oウチ氏、木村氏の甥っ子（昨夜アメリカに着いたばかり）のsin5氏と筆者は何を血迷ったのかチャボが誇る全ストック車でボンフリに乗り込むことに。甥っ子sin5氏は叔父の所に来るというので一念発起してオートバイの免許を取得したばかり。しかもボンフリが何なのかも聞かされず、どこにあるのかも知らずにいきなり出発。無事に着くといいんだけど・・・
sin5's face turned pale already at the gas station right next to our workshop. チャボのすぐ隣のガソリンスタンドですでに顔色が悪くなっているsin5氏。
just had to take a brake at 1/5 point because sin5's ride was really tense and we all got tensed up.
W and Kiyo are the same age and share the same birthday... なんとWタナベ氏とKヨナガ氏が同い年で同じ誕生日。なんだかKヨナガ氏が気の毒です。あ、そんなことないか、これからですからWタナベ氏は。これから、これからっと。遅咲きうなぎ上り。

great to see it in person! cant' wait to see it on the track!
Len Higa with hawaiian breeze!
we knew that Len worked very hard to build this one and he did a great job.
well, everybody spend a great deal of time and effort to build one for the show. it's a great opportunity to have and share this kind of big moment with like-minded people. although we still keep definite stance of anti-competition in aesthetics (we'd rather be competing in races), we had a great time and enjoyed all kinds of motorcycles there. great people, great atmosphere, great show.
