P.S. You wife seems to be really enjoying the ride in the Lambo! And damn, they are really narrow roads to be driving a 4S on!!

Thanks for the comments. My wife drove the Lamborghini - not many 25 years old women get to drive such cars and I am no kidding she loved it! She has been / driven everything from Boxsters to Ferrari's and the only car "loved" was the Lambo.

I am very cautious about speeding and would never do it in an environment that could risk lives - honestly. In the 4S when i saw the bike, I really slowed down and later on I had to drive at like 50 km because of the bikes in front of me.

I could see that in the video Porky, and my comment was not about your driving (which was fantastic btw!), it was just a general comment on how narrow that 2-lane road was with absolutely no run-off space.

Guess, this being Japan I should have expected that. Just that I'm still waiting to visit Japan so don't know the conditions first hand, yet.

Thanks Iraghava. You are right the roads are very narrow. On the video where I drive from standstill to quite a fast speed on the motorway the lane is very narrow indeed. On some of the mountain roads the road looks like ONE lane but is in fact two!!! I am not kidding, it is quite scary.
