Rest in peace: Soichiro Honda, the maker of motorcycle dreams

In 1991, the world said goodbye to man who was instrumental in making the motorcycle a ubiquitous vehicle available to the common man. Soichiro Honda did for motorbikes what Henry Ford did for cars. He brought them down to a price we could all afford and put the dream within the reach of the masses.

I must admit to being a bit partial to Mr Honda, even though I ride a Yamaha. My first motorbike was a Honda CB350 twin and it was a great bike, even if I did destroy it.

In this video from Honda, we get to pay tribute to what Soichiro Honda did for the world of motorcycling.
