Nifty write-up. Sounds like a really cool guy. I liked this part:
"Honda normally refused to speak about his company, racing or anything related to them while in his home, but in 1985, after winning both the 250 and 500 world championships Americans Freddie Spencer and Erv Kanemoto were invited to Mr. Honda's home after the season ended. The then retired Honda heard that Spencer had an aversion to sushi, but had a dinner of raw fish prepared for them. After minutes of Spencer pushing his food around his plate, Honda laughed and brought Spencer in a bag of McDonald's hamburgers."
