you can ride there over a bridge but it's 142kms away. Maybe next year?
I wonder if I can take a train up there from Ube. Also, is the campsite on the north side of the island open in Sept or Oct?

We went there by car and camped at Yanai. The beach is nice, but the water gets deep real fast.
This is something I'd like to challenge, but I'm having a hard time on getting any info on the island in general.
By the way, do you live anywhere near the island?

no mate I live in Aomori the other end of Honshu .
Re: campsites, I usually just go and if the campsite is closed then it's a safe bet :: if you pitched your tent in an out of the way place towards dusk and packed up at dawn, no one would complain, doubt they would ever see you. If they do, just play ignorant and say you arrived too late and had nowhere to stay. end of season camping is the best time. Not crowded and locals are usually more relaxed,

Well today, it is cleaning and waxing the bike. I'm not sure if Giant uses a primer before the finish coat, but luckily the missing paint from the debris didn't hit my glasses.
Today I cleaned my bike with also this wax. Came out ok I think, but rain is in the air now.
