Hello everyone! I've been a lurker of not only this forum, but the biker community in general for a while - thought it was time to actually get involved! Unfortunately I don't own a bike yet, or my license. I'm planning to go for my Q-Ride in the next couple months. I've pillioned with my dad on his BMW R1150 - since then I've wanted a bike of my own. As I plan to live and study in Japan for next year, it looks like I won't be getting a bike before that . Instead hopefully I'll be cruising the mountainous roads of Japan next year! Anyone have any experience riding on an international driving permit?
