    He's sounds something like Soichiro Honda (sp?) founder of Honda who was a ball of fire - came from a modest family, became an expert mechanic in teens, started making parts, dated Geisha girls by the carload, built and sold small motorcycles after the war, built more motorcycles and raced them himself, introduced the Civic in the 70's. Some people got it going on.

    In some ways, I gotta give Honda the one up on coolness. They race MotoGP and Indy. Sorry Toyota, but NASCAR and NHRA have too few curves.

    Casey Stoner - Repsol Honda MotoGP team. MotoGP is the premier roadracing org.

    That's not an easy bike to ride on bad roads.

    it weighs over 500lb.

    He could have taken the easy way out and ridden a dual sport.
