He is such an arrogant and disrespectful rider, he should but again thats the problem of having teenagers in these types of positions so early in their lives, that silly stunt may cost him his career especially if things start going wrong vis a vis the bike and other bikes matching their tech

Desert,

Japanese culture and society is based upon a set of values and behaviours that are very different to much of the Western world. Large corporations such as Honda are very conservative/traditional.

We westerners, particularly Brits, would rightly laugh off an apparently trivial/littlelest thing, but that is because we have been raised in a very different society to that in Japan.

The cultural differences are really interesting, and very easy to get tripped up on. You may recall the HSBC advertising campaign based upon them being able to understand and deal with the cultural differences. Very important when doing business internationally, and I have, and with the Japanese.

So its nothing to do with bell ends, but is to do with understanding cultures beyond our own.
