Winter riding in Japan on a near-new FZ1, accompanied by equally spotless ER-4n & Gladius 400. At the end of the day we reach our destination, the well known Hakone Turnpike. At the toll booth we were advised of water on the road due to melting snow, but no black ice. I had to ride into snow on the side of the road to find the ice… It was a balancing act, but I made it to the top in time to take in the sunset views of Mt Fuji and a rare supermoon. But the night was just beginning - the bikes were ours until the morning and there was still lots of riding to be done and sights to see, so we headed back towards the neon lights of Tokyo.
