    For Honda, even if they dont do well, they still feel they do well... even for Honda, failure is a success.

    I cant even make this stuff up... Just now, I was reading one of my favorite blog sites, Gizmodo, and the advertisement in the upper right was by Honda...

    And I took a screenshot:

    You reading 2-week old Gizmodo articles is a failure.

    Your not riding anymore is a failure.

    THIS WHOLE DAMN THREAD IS A FAILURE!

    you think the motorcycle you ride today was just made that way? no, it's a result of making mistakes along the way to perfection.

    Success is merely going from failure to failure with great enthusiasm
