Honda motorcycles: some tidbits

Being the Honda fan I am, I saw a series of videos about Honda Motorcycles on Discovery Channel.  4th video in the series is about their Gold Wing bikes, and I am sold on it already!  Don't be surprised if I buy one at some point ;-)  A few interesting tidbits from the videos:
  • Honda CB750, launched in 1969, was the first ever bike to use a disk brake and a 4-cylinder engine.
  • Honda's Gold Wing motorcycle has more parts than a Honda Civic.
  • Honda Gold Wing 6-cylinder 1800cc engine is so smooth you can balance a nickel on it while the engine is running.
