Dumpling Night Ride


A night ride with the Guell crew on Friday. The destination was Kizugawa City, north of Nara just over the border in Kyoto prefecture...


Eerily deserted roads as we made the climb into Kyoto... 


The night's goal was a roadside gyoza dumpling van, apparently a popular spot with locals looking for dumplings... 



The crew make their choices...


We took this photo at least five times. This is the best one we got. Even after some heavy editing with Fotor...


Crew fed and ready for the return journey back to Nara...


Cheers to Toshio, Susumu and the Guell crew. If you are ever in Kizugawa City and have the urge for gyoza then you know where to go...

Midweek Night Ride


A local midweek night ride with F-i-N around the Heijo Palace and the back streets of Saidai-ji. The usual blurred night ride shots...


A brief rest stop at the hidden gem that is Kiko-ji Temple...


Utilising the lights outside Bar Suno to grab a couple more pictures...



One night, we swear, we will get some decent photos.

Lowrider

Funky little lowrider cruiser spotted out in Osaka yesterday...



And on the theme of purple lowriders,  how about a bit of Cypress Hill?
