    nope - you probably wouldnt. i live near the san andreas . have felt more than i would like, every one different. some rolling, some crack quickly...the worst part is when they happen, you dont know---is it about to get worse!? then, thankfully it is over...the feeling, the sound...it gets unnerving. a 6 or 7 would be terrifying imo.

    Why couldn't the damn eclipse be today!? :mad:

    Perfect conditions. 75% chance of overcast at the actual time, enhanced threat of hail/tornadoes that evening.

    If you could just order up the size you want... But yeah.

    Seems like it would definitely remind us humans where we stand in the grand scheme of things.

    Beautiful day here in central Texas. My wife is stressed about the weather on eclipse day. She is all geared up with her cameras to do time lapse with one and photos with the other. Hopefully we get a break in the clouds at the right time. Awesome pic. The blue bonnets are going off this year.

    You need to make a video of those multiple-floor, narrow-as-fuck motorcycle stores if they are still out there.

    Any idea what part of town to look for them?

    I can't remember. It was quite a struggle to find them and that was 24 years ago. It was worth the hassle, though. So much cool shit to buy.

    My guess is that they're gone. So much new stuff here rebuilt with updated earthquake standards. I searched Youtube and couldnt find anything resembling them.

    Just re-read my journal. I didn't make a note before it was. Honestly, I have no idea where I was. I did that in the morning, and the sumo tournament featuring Akebono in the afternoon. Fantastic day.

    Too bad. 6 to 9 floors. All motorcycle stuff. It felt like Bruce Lee in Game of Death. Except no one tried to kill me.
    Only time I ever saw a Ducati 400 SS. I didn't even know it was a thing.

    The Ueno District truly overwhelmed my senses when I was there in January of 1988.

    Ueno is a shadow of it's former self, as I recall from magazines from the era. That said, it still has some cool shops and is worth a visit for the enthusiast. There is at least one of the "I thought it was a tiny shop, but it is 5 floors high" places. I think "Rabee" was one (I bought some gloves). There is a small shop called "Ride On" (with a big Arai sign) that is run by a guy who used to be an Arai factory guy at the GPs. He has signed helmets from everybody, and speaks English well enough that we could have a nice chat.

    Like most places in Tokyo, you have to go through Tokyo to get there, so there are almost no bad destinations. Saw a bunch of cool stuff at our destination, but many more on the way there and back.
