Awesome Bike

Honda Rune
"The Rune. High concept meets high performance in the ultimate expression of form and function."

An awesome bike. I love this bike. It costs as more than my Honda Odyssey mini-van, tho', so I won't be riding one any time soon, barring a large lottery win.

I noticed a funny thing when I was watching the Rune intro movie. I think somebody at Honda's ad agency needs to read up on Norse mythology.
The Rune tagline is:

Forged From the Soul of a Valkyrie

The movie shows a lot of lightning, and a large, angry viking with a sword in the background. I didn't see any valkyries tho' -- Valkyries being maidens who served Odin as choosers of slain warriors, who were taken to reside in Valhalla.
