Day 6
Mount Aso to Nagasaki
This is another Big day. The most difficult part of today's route is to decide which of the great roads to use. We choose the “Milk Road”, “Aso Panorama Line” and “Kenny Road” which was a favorite of the great Kenny Roberts. They are all great roads with unique scenery. Would love to spend an extra day! (yes, we can arrange it! Please let us know if you are interested!)
