    Nathan has driven the Cub for 1,300km, it is time for a maintenance. He stops over a motorcycle shop to have the oil changed. The staff there has watched the show and know about Nathan, one of them Ito-san has kindly offered to stay over the night. Ito-san has a large-size motorcycle in his garage and both him and his wife are big motorcycle fans.


    Thank you Ito-san, much appreciated.
