I'll give the benefit of the doubt and say he was pushing the V5 card, though that would make this thread far less funny.

That was my thought upon first reading. I was thinking he must really be bored at work to get such a kick out of that.

Honda has made v5 engines before. Their MotoGP bike had one for a while. It was a very good design choice because the bank with 2 cylinders was between the frame rails allowing the designers to make the bike exceptionally narrow. As far as I know, Honda was the only company who did this. Eventually they went back to an I4 because they can make the engine a good bit lighter. If working on V4 bikes is any indication, I'm sure the mechanics were very happy about the change.

I love threads like this because among all the chatter you always get at least 1 or 2 scientists such as the one above who come in and clarify everything to a scintillating detail and I always learn so much from those posts.

Its not as much fun when the OP admits to the ownage.

These threads usually end up in denial, personal attacks and then a banning.

No fun.

He took it like a man, we've all made mistakes and I can't hold it against him. It is funny and I did laugh, but he's not going to be brought down to Water-S level based on this single event.

to the OP, lesser men would run and hide

You'd think a person with such humility wouldn't be the type to trash on a used car salesmen in the first place. I guess he sinks to the occasion.
