Happy New Year! Shredding Japan!

The end of the year came fast for us here in Japan but, we had a surprise visit from our good buddy @buspilot from Australia. We took him on a 4-day FreeRide tour through our local hand built and natural trails here in Japan.

Our tours were guided by @Noriaki, @Munetoshi, and myself @nikoniko.

Please check out our 4-day video compressed into an exciting short video! What a great way to break in the new year!

Please have a great start to the new year 2016!

RideOn!

 Thank you bro! Freeriding and having fun just as we have been for over 10 years now. My lines have been like this for over 10 years too and are set up for bar spins, I know it looks add but, I have run all my bikes like this for year without problems but I can see your point. I don't know what to say about helmets, I have only owned one full face in my life and never used it, it was cumbersome and felt like I lost a lot of my vision, so we are just half cap riders, hahahahhahhahh Thank you for the stoke buddy! Some of those drops are huge in real life! ahhahah RideOn dude!

 yah... I kinda figured you guys knew what you were doing. gotta ride with whatever makes you feel comfortable gear wise. just bullshittin pretty much. wish I was there riding that stuff with you! looks fun!

 Do you ride with a full face?
I guess one other reason is we climb all the trails we ride and in spring through summer is super humid here.
Back home the weather is nice and dry, my pops says New Mexico has even lower humidity than Cali!

Tomorrow we are going to check out a new trail!
I don't know anything about it but its been built recently and we were invited to come shred it up!
hahahh

RideOn!

 Video is dope! Better make it a least to movie mondays.

 That would be super cool! But I think I have a style of editing and project a vibe that doesn't suit main media here on this site. Im perfectly happy with my bros support, but I would really like people to see Momo style and hopefully get him some more exposure! He has a big future in biking! RideOn bro!
  • + 1
 So many slick moves Momo dropped without warning.. Like the wicked long highspeed manuals and the 180 jump around thingys..I wish I had a camera on him all the time! I agree someone ought to sponsor him in some way, shape or form sometime soon! Those tricks he is working on on the airbag will be thrown on dirt soon too I'm sure!
