November 23 is a national holiday in Japan.
I participated in 'BCR Touring' performed on the holiday.
A place is north Izu.
There is "Hakone" in this north Izu, and there is winding road called "Tsubaki line".
Tsubaki line seems to be Japanese Mulholland.
(I have not gone to Mulholland, but.)
That day was not able to run by fog, but on a fine day, many riders gather.
Through Hakone, cross Izu Peninsula, and lunch is a restaurant "IRIE" of Nishiura.
After lunch, we ran for winding road again, and took a hot spa and finished touring.
The circuit is good, but touring with the mate is the best!
FYI, it is "Labor Thanksgiving Day" on this national holiday.
BCR is "Bay City Runners"
Riders team based on Yokohama.
And a leader is Nobu Kikuchi who participated in Daytona.

There is a foundation of the club team called MCFAJ in Japan, and there performs "Clubman RoadRace" in four a year series races.
And the class called "SuperMonster 80's" is included in this race.
This class parts to 'A' and 'B', 'A' is a class of a motorcycle marketed by 1983.
By the way, this 'A' becomes the class which seems to have put "MONSTER" and "MONSTR EVO" of "Taste of Tsukuba" together.
In the next week of "Taste of Tsukuba", an MCFAJ Clubman RoadRace was performed at the same Tsukuba circuit.
From the fewness of the entry of each class, race was mixed with the other classes.
Result, the champion of this SuperMonster 80's A class is a Shark!

58 rider that the entry of "D.O.B.A.R MONSTER" class exceeds the last time.
The official practice added to intensity more.
There was difference in the road surface condition, but the preliminary passage thyme became faster for five seconds than May.
In the finals, '#70 Shingo Saeki' and '#83 Yasuo Arai' led a race, and they did an intense battle from beginning to end.
And the race by the rider who did not pass the preliminary was performed because there were many entries.
In this race too, a hot battle was developed.
