Thursday Daytime Open Thread

Today we celebrate utterly pointless excess.

Back in the early 1980s, Honda unveiled an absolutely batshit motorcycle called the CBX. It came with a six-cylinder engine. In the illustrious history of two-wheeled transportation, no motorcycle has ever needed six cylinders (most are either two or four). As you can see from the picture, the engine was way too wide for the bike’s chassis. No matter, I’m glad those Japanese geniuses built this machine because the sound of that engine is pure music.
