A motorcycle scrambler, scooter, and a motorcycle race
Scramblers are an ancient race in Japan, but it took a lot more than a single race to get the idea off the ground.
In 2013, a team of students from Kyoto University got the idea to combine all these different aspects into a unique motorcycle race.
With no formal training, the students had to put together a team that included students, hobbyists, and volunteers from the local community.
And it worked.
After several months, the event, which was called Yurikochi, or Japanese Scrambler, was born.
“It is very unique,” said Masahiro Sato, a mechanical engineer who helped design the bike.
“There is no way you can do this on a bicycle, so we built a bike that is very compact and light.”
The Yurikyoku is a three-wheeled race motorcycle that combines the advantages of a scrambler with a motorcycle.
It is powered by a Kawasaki ZX-10R, which is also available as a road bike, and has a maximum top speed of 120 miles per hour (209 km/h).
In addition to the scrambler and motorcycle, the Yuriki has a second bike to handle the other races.
The Yursi has a unique ability to race with a small bike, which it can be configured to race on, as well as race on a bike-sized platform that can be mounted on a pole.
It also has a small, flexible chassis that can accommodate the scramblers.
Sato explained that the team has also made a racing seat for the race that can fit a scramblers and a race-sized frame for the rider.
“The Yuriyoku is very competitive, but the race is not about the race,” said Sato.
“I like the concept of a race, but I also want to make a bicycle that I can race with.”
The race is held in the winter and in March, but has been held in summer and autumn since 2010.
“When we are doing a race for the first time, we want to show people that the Yursiyoku can race and that we can do it, and that it is possible,” said Takashi Yamada, the driver.
“People are excited and they want to come and try it.”

“We need to create an atmosphere of cooperation.
I want to introduce the idea of teamwork.”

“They are very supportive of our race,” Sato said.
“If we can get the race started, we can continue our efforts.”
The organizers are also planning on doing some other events in the future, such as an event at the Kawasaki dealership, a motorcycle and a scooter race.
“But it will not be a real race,” he added.
“This is a very new thing.”
