I'm sure it will be much better no matter what, compared to the DR trip, lol. Have you ever used CouchSurfing? I have stayed with countless people in the US via CS, and it's a worldwide thing. I'm sure you could find some english speaking hosts, if not even other Canadian or American ex-pats to stay with if you searched hard enough! Just a though,t, as CS is, and has to be, totally free of charge.
I'm totally doing that next time. In Japan I bet that's how porn starts. Actually in Japan just walking down the street is how porn starts. If you've never been there you won't get what I mean.
It should be better than the DR. Usually in Japan they are so meticulous with everything I'm not super worried about my hotels, just hoping that this all comes together. I booked small rooms because I just need a place to basically sleep and wash, so barring that I have no expectations. I did the hostel thing last time, not for me. Guess I'm high maintenance. The good news is I got two weeks of hotels during cherry blossom season for under a grand canadian. Hah! Try doing that. It's fun. I'll make a thread before I leave at the end of the month and I'll post up some cool pictures for nobody to look at. I'm also visiting some bike places while there, so there'll likely be some bike pics. Not sure if I can make it to Honda or not yet, we'll see. Not sure how sober I'm going to be on this trip.

Depends on how compromised the data is, and how badly damaged the drive was. A simple crashed head is cheaper to work around than a drive that was dropped while spun, or damaged in a fire. We'll see...

And thanks, I'm really stoked on how the bike turned out! Those photos are like 4 months old, but sadly it's still warm weather here...another dud winter as far as the cold is concerned, though thankfully we have actually been getting rain here and there. 2 Days ago though, it was 86F here...not ok
It's hovering around 30-40 here, has for months now. Warmest winter I've ever seen here. Guys are already out on the bikes. I got blitzed by a stonkin nice 2005 Repsol CBR100RR this morning. Gave the guy the thumbs up at the next light. Gave me goose bumps and makes me want to get mine out right now. Oh and I'm calling it right now, speeding ticket this year. I already feel it. Going to start saving up now.

Time off is time off. I know there's no money involved, but sometimes you just gotta go.
Japan should be good. It'll be low stress, which is the biggest thing. My biggest worry from day to day will be finding the right meal, it'll be rough. I have a lot planned out but with Japanese transit, it'll take two days. So lots of wandering around and spur of the moment stuff. Should be a lot better. I'm just worried about my hotels, I hope those are as advertised. If so, I'm golden.

You're lucky, most data recovery here is a grand or thereabouts. Glad you're ok and kicking. The bike looks great! And if I'm not mistaken it looks like warm weather and sunshine. Still sitting here wondering what that's actually like.

That sucks man, sorry to hear it was such a disappointment. Hopefully Japan is way better! I'm checking off my 50th state and hitting Hawaii for 15 days at the end of April...It's all unpaid time off, so ouch, but I'm stoked!

Just run over by bills, ha. Dental work is ludicrously expensive, and I have 2 hard drives that need professional recovery at like 500 USD each :(

Or use imgur and just paste the links to high res here? Thanks for ignoring us. We weren't wondering how it was going or anything. Full conversation then POOF, nothing. Thought you got run over or something.  :spank:
