Fukushima Murai's "Rose cutlet bowl (sauce)", which was selected as the first place, is also famous as a "big-sized" menu, and it is a dish that the super-thick cutlet and the elegant sweet sauce are exquisite. According to the researcher, "I miss food that contains gutsuri elements after long-distance touring." "(Fukushima Prefecture) is actively supporting riders, and the information on the website is also substantial. It is comfortable for riders. Comments such as "Area" were received.

The second place was the local gourmet "Mametentama Okonomiyaki" in Tokushima prefecture, which is also popular as a touring course. It is said to be an okonomiyaki that is inherited only in Tokushima, with sweetly boiled "Kintoki beans", eggs, and small shrimp tempura. Researchers commented that "powdered goods are one of the staples of motorcycle gourmet" and "touring around the sea and islands is a longing for riders", and "touring around islands + powdered goods" was evaluated.

BONADEA "Raisin Sandwich" in 3rd place is a local sweet sold at the direct sales office in the Yamanashi / Fuefuki area, and sandwiches dried grapes using a variety called Rosario Bianco. Researchers commented, "Because I only use the dried grapes I made that year, the taste is different every year. It's like wine and it's interesting." Yamanashi Prefecture is also a popular area for touring courses that go around Mt. Fuji and the Fuji Five Lakes.

In the same questionnaire, the autumn limited chestnut sweets "Suzaku" from Nagano and Obusedo and "Sakura shrimp kakiage" from Shizuoka and Yui fishing port, which use abundant special product Sakura shrimp, were ranked high. It seems that the point of each menu was to "enjoy it together with touring."

"Gourmet & sweets are a reason to ride a motorcycle. Please enjoy touring with the theme of gourmet & sweets," said the institute.
