Hi all

This is my first post here, so I hope I get it all done correctly.

I live in Nagoya, Japan and we have a lot of decent roads within an hours ride on the highway. The most popular is Suzuka Skyline, but after last weeks ride on the Kurakake Pass, I don't think I will bother with Suzuka again. The Kurakake Pass is route 306 and was recommended by an old fella at the local biker stop at the end of the Suzuka Skyline. He told us that in the 90s this road was basically a race track and was filled with 250 2-strokes from morning til night. People used to come and watch from all over the country and there was even a league/event held here monthly with timed races.

I make YouTube videos, so here is a link to the video;
