We were recently out at the Battle of Bottom Link, a custom bike race in Japan. But, it's not a normal race. The only bike allowed is the Honda Cub, or more specifically only a certain breed of vintage, pre-1964 Cub. It can but modified to certain extents, but it has to be a Cub.
What's a Cub, you ask...
It's the super-cheap, super-common little Go-Bike that can be found any and everywhere in Japan. If you're in the Land of the Rising Sun right now, we guarantee there is one of these things within a kilometre of you. It's entirely possible that you're reading this from the back of one right now and you didn't even notice.
So, just imagine 20 gear-heads jacking those things up with killer suspension and tires and pushing the bikes to their physical limits on a track that's slick from the rain. And we get to film there. It might look something like this:
We'd love to share the footage with you, but it's feature-bound and you'll have to wait until that one drops.
