You know you've got a motorcycle addiction when you can listen to YouTube video of a motorcycle running and sit there grinning like an idiot.

Granted, when that bike is he RC181, you expect it to sound good. A 500cc two- stroke, it was ridden by Mike Hailwood and Jim Redman during the '66 and '67 seasons.

Unfortunately, Hailwood came second to Ago in 66 although Honda did win the constructors championship. And at the end of the '67 season, Honda left racing altogether, at least for a while.

That sounds absolutely wonderful. Yes, grinning like an idiot too.
