"To bōsō is to be in a criminal gang, but you don't look for crimes to commit... apart from traffic crimes. It's more about making ordinary road bikes stand out. It feels good to ride with your gang, but you get in trouble. [From 2004] Japanese police were given a lot more power to arrest groups of bikers. It's hard to ride with your friends these days and stay out of trouble. At some point, you have to accept that you can't live like that. For me, that happened well before the police lock-down. It was the day I saw a Lamborghini.
"I was 17, and it was New Year 's Eve. I heard this thing long before I saw it - it had such an intense exhaust note, I was completely mesmerised, and had no idea a car could make so much noise. We would spend hundreds of thousand [yen] on our bike's exhaust, but this was just... louder. After a few seconds, I could see it. It was a black Countach driving down Nakasendō Road. I told myself I was going to buy a Lamborghini. I had to buy a Lamborghini.
