■How to run Hokkaido and How to enjoy

Beautiful sky, majestic horizon, straight stretch road, no signal. Hokkaido is a rider heaven. However, unlike the mainland, there are also dangerous points. Let 's enjoy the journey safely and happily understand there.

■How to run Hokkaido


●Basic does not give speed = in safe driving!

Blue sky, straight road without signal = pleasant = like a highway = blow off.

Blue sky, straight road without signal = pleasant = like a highway = blow off.

That's pretty dangerous. Contrary to that pleasant road, the following dangers are hidden.


●Be careful of popping out animals

That is the sign of the sign. There are a lot of wild deer in vast Hokkaido, and there are things that cross the road.

What will happen if I take out 100 km / h and jump suddenly from the side to a big deer (deer is agile)? If it is a car, it will be a radiator breakage · windshield breakage, but if it is a motorcycle ...

Be careful of popping out animals

Although the above signs can be seen throughout Hokkaido, there were a lot of alerts around Dōdō (Nemuro - Kushiro).

Ezo deer collision accident prevention 5 principle

①Attention to sunset and dawn in autumn / winter

The Ezoshika accident happens a lot in October to January and then in spring of April. As a time zone it concentrates from 16 to 20 o'clock, from 4 to 6 o'clock.

②There is a deer after the deer

Ezoshima is acting in a herd. When the first head is overwhelmed and relieved, two or three will be popped out later. First, decelerate when you see one Ezo deer.

③Ezoshika is my own pace

Ezoshika may not escape even when a car approaches, and may collide unless it decelerates. If you look at the ezoshima on the road, decelerate.

④If you see the light at night

The eyes of Ezoshima will shine by the headlight being reflected. If you see things that shine at night, first slow down.

⑤Forest is a path of deer

The woods are territory of Ezoshika. When passing through, let's run with the ezoshika popping out.

Other

I did a round around Hokkaido, but I was fortunate to jump out of the deer. But I saw a deer in the grass beside the road and the fox and the squirrel crossed the road. I am quite surprised.

Let's enjoy the Hokkaido slowly while refraining from anything else.


●Speed breach

Road that you want to skip = serious (death) Accidents are many = Enhance speed enforcement = Let's run slowly Hokkaido Flag.

I do not know where I am doing and because it's an ordinary road, the overspeed will increase by that much!

Safe driving · Flag · Run slowly Hokkaido


●Be careful of gas shortage

The following is a warning signboard on the expressway, but it is close to it even on the lower road (General Road), but once it passed through the city and entered the vast natural zone, there was no stand.

Be careful of gas shortage

There was also a place not found in the stand, and there was a thing that did "field ○ ○".

It is natural that you go in the stand in the town and you should feel as if you were feeling about "putting the whole if you find the stand".


●Other (Tire decrease is early)

Hokkaido · Tohoku is a snowy country, heavy truck rolls chain and runs. Therefore, there are many places where the road surface is rough, and the tire of the motorcycle also decreases quickly.

Tires with few grooves should be exchanged before going to Hokkaido.

How to enjoy Hokkaido


●Hokkaido Touring Program (Let's know about the division of Hokkaido)

After going for a tremendous distance if you go to the air as it is, you will be in a situation such as "Oh, I wanted to go there too"!

Before traveling in Hokkaido, please grasp the whole experience (what kind of division, what is where?) And do an efficient and pleasant journey.

Speaking of the most familiar divisions, it will be divided into four categories: "Hokkaido" "Donan" "Northeast" "Higashi". It is based on the branch office. Nishi is basically not used.

Classification of Hokkaido


●How do I move around?

I turned around as follows. Whether you go around (travel) will depend on your time and your wallet.

However, Hokkaido is wider than the appearance of the map. There was 450 km on the expressway to return from Obihiro to Hakodate. It is almost Tokyo - Osaka. There is around 2,000 kim around Hokkaido.

Let's make a reasonable plan!

Route with major sightseeing spots in Hokkaido


●Recommended trip and choice of accommodation

As you leave food and tourism specialties and spots to travel magazines and travel sites, I would like to recommend the communication between travelers.

There are many cheap accommodation facilities in Hokkaido, guest houses, rider houses and public offices. And in the summer Hokkaido is a place where travelers love to travel.

Recommended trip and choice of accommodation

In cheap accommodation where such travel lovers gather, it will be exciting beyond age, position and history. Of course it is because people who like traveling, nature, motorcycle (ride), people (communication) gather.

Recommended trip and choice of accommodation

A fine hotel bar lounge is also nice, but such a trip is also extraordinary and funny.

Case (recommended accommodation)

・Pippu-cho Bunbun House (300 yen)

・Fisherman's shop (2,500 yen)

・Okoppe-cho Fureai House (0 yen)


●Enjoy magnificent nature

The color of the sky that I have never seen before, the bright green horizon, the way to go straight anywhere.

●Greeting between riders is fun

When I was in the bubble of the 1980s and the shopkeepers of the rider house who knew about that time are said to have issued a peace sign with the right hand whenever I meet them on the mountain path anywhere.

But I went to Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu, but it was nearly 0 in the present day of 2014. (But I guess there was a little around Kyushu / Aso.

However, every time he enters Hokkaido and goes northward, he / she receives more greetings more frequently. "Hokkaido is a rider heaven" = "pleasant" = riders' high "I also started practicing greetings.

●Basics of riders' greetings (as of 2014)

・I will raise my left hand

I will raise my left hand

Like old days it is not a peace sign with the right hand = probably holding a throttle and it is dangerous, I wonder what you mean by "with your left hand". There is nothing to flap up and it makes me messy if I can return myself smoothly!

・Tandem women are Banzai

It's riders high right? pleasant. In such a case, I will give my left hand up and give it back to you as expected from my greeting.
