I finally got a good nights sleep. I left a pile of garbage in the hotel room, because I had been packing all of it around. I repacked better too. I left the hotel at 8:45 am (five minutes early!). I drove to the Honda Collection Hall/Motegi Twin Ring again. I picked up the souvenir I wanted, and saw parts of the museum that I blazed through before.

... early for some breakfast. We got a picnic style selection of fruit and bread/jam and sat overlooking our nearest lake; Kawaguchi. It didn't take long to cycle around the first lake, and we had plenty of time to stop for shrines, picturesque photo opportunities and plenty of water/snack breaks. At one information centre stop, there was some local music and a BBQ, where I took full opportunity to sample some of the freshly barbecued pork ...
