Soichiro Honda's childhood days are full of examples of technical ingenuity, including using a bicycle pedal rubber to replicate his family's seal. At that time, the school handed grade reports to the children, but required that it will be returned stamped with the family seal, to make sure that a parent had seen it. The fraud was soon discovered when Honda started to make forged stamps for other children. Honda did not realise that the stamp had to be mirror-imaged. His family name 本田 was symmetrical when written vertically, so it didn't cause problem, but some of other children's family names weren't.
badass, a screwup like that would make any kid learn to make better stuff. there should be a movie about Honda, he had a pretty cool life.

yeah a lot of people today are all "man dude that bike is 5 yrs old and just doesnt have the technology to meet my mad skillz man yaknow dude" and those guys tore it up on friggin' tanks, they prolly had to design the seats special back then to accommodate for the giant those guys had.
