Soichiro Honda: "The Power of Dreams"
2009

 "I wanted to express the genius of Honda through an idea that was both simple and sophisticated -- and above all linked to the creativity of children. As a boy, I was often on a bike, and I remember that during my races I'd apply a piece of cardboard between the fork and the rear wheel of my bike. The noise was deafening, and in my imagination that was my motorcycle. I projected my idea onto the mind of Honda, and the idea of the broom and wheels was born."
