Kawasaki ZRX1200 motorcycle tour around Hakone

On Saturday 10th September 2016, I rented a Kawasaki ZRX1200 (カワサキ KRZ1200) and had a tour around Hakone (箱根), which is located less than 100km on south-west side of Tokyo, with my friend from Pompone Japan motorcycle team. First of all, we went to Odawara (小田原) using the Tomei highway (東名高速道路) and then we took the Mazda Turn Pike (マツダターンパイク) road up to the Mazda Sky Lounge (マツダスカイラウンジ). I really recommend this road because there is quite no car, so you can ride your motorcycle very fast if you want (however, I recommend you to always respect the rules). In the next video, at 1:17, a Ferrari overtakes me. I was riding at about 70-80 km/h, that Ferrari's speed must have been more than 100 km/h.

After arriving at Mazda Sky Lounge, we took a rest.
