Rules from A Honda

 1962 Safety Rules from Honda

 Taken from a 1962 Honda Motor Cycle Owner’s Manual.

Translated by Honda for the American Motorcycle Rider

 1. At the rise of the hand by Policeman, stop rapidly. Do not pass him by or otherwise disrespect him.

 2. When a passenger of the foot, hooves in sight, tootel the horn trumpet melodiously at first.  If he still obstacles your passage, tootel him with vigor and express by word of mouth, warning Hi, Hi.

 3. Beware of the wandering horse that he shall not take fright as you pass him. Do not explode the exhaust box at him. Go soothingly by.

“Got into work at my usual five-o-dark, get on elevator. I’m wearing “business casual” but it’s under full leathers. I’m heading up to second floor from G4, when the elevator stops at G2 and a nicely dressed lady, about my age, gets on. She glances at me, and I say “Good morning” – no acknowledgment – and she quickly turns around to assume the correct elevator position – facing forward. The doors are brass, I can see her glance up at my reflection, then down, to stare at the floor when she sees me see her seeing me. We stop at the lobby and she’s walking out before the door opens… as the doors start to close, she takes a fast glance back to make sure I’m not following her.

Have a NICE day! So sorry I didn’t get a chance to mug you and take your DKNY purse.
Maybe next time, OK? You can meet my gan- er, friends. You’ll like them, too…”
