Motorcycle Safety Rules

without comments

These earnest but amateurish translations from a 1962 Honda Motorcycle Instruction Book may seem comical now but serve to illustrate how much Honda has matured in the interim. The advice for motorcyclists is just as meaningful a half-century later…

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.

4. Give big space to the festive dog that makes sport in roadway. Avoid
entanglement of dog with wheel spokes.

5. Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
Press the brake foot as you roll around the corners, and save the collapse
and tie up.
