I'm not really confident that doing so will save the collapse and the tie up. It will just make it noisier.

Maybe try exploding the exhaust box so you might cause fright to the skid demon when on the grease mud. ?

I mean, the instructions CLEARLY state to tootel passengers of the foot with vigor if they are obstacling your path. If the skid demon is in my path, I'm tooteling that sonofabitch with as much vigor as I can muster.

Interesting that they advocate pressing the brake foot as you roll around corners in the grease mud. To me, that seems more like a way of summoning the skid demon than a way to save the collapse and tie up.

Not to be a party pooper, but it does appear that this is fake. Or, at least, it never appeared in any actual Honda manual.

I'm still gonna vigorously tootel anyone who obstacles my path though.

I first saw this in London 1975 where it was stuck on the side of the E6 processing machine...

Das machine is nicht für gefingerpoken und mittengrabben.  Ist easy
schnappen der springenwerk, blowenfusen und corkenpoppen mit
spitzensparken.  Ist nicht für gewerken by das dummkopfen.  Das
rubbernecken sightseeren keepen hands in das pockets.  Relaxen und
vatch das blinkenlights!!!
