Actually I don't know. The guy is normally pretty sensible but he does have a healthy money saving streak. Perhaps a spare tire is an option here? When I queried it he also said that Honda had given him free membership of JAF and he could call them if he got a puncture. I would far far rather just know I could be back on the road within 10 minutes. Madness really but perhaps that is how it is here. Most Japanese guys have absolutely no clue how to do anything more than changing a light bulb. In fact a lot of them can't do that. In fact, I think they think it is beneath them. I didn't study hard all those years to get my hands dirty One good thing about teachers here is they are generally not like that - the women included.
