“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Two new special-edition Fireblades

HONDA has revealed two new editions for the Fireblade, with special paint jobs and race-inspired extras.
The ‘TT Special’ gets Honda’s ‘tri-color’ red, white and blue paint job, as seen on the Blade raced by John McGuinness, along with a MotoGP-style Akrapovič exhaust and Gilles levers and lever guards.
It also features Gilles chain adjusters, paddock stand lifters and crash pads, and Galfer stainless wavey discs. It costs £16,999 on the road.
The ‘Black Edition’ benefits from the same levers and wavey discs plus a smoked bubble screen, seat cowl and carbon fibre hugger. It costs £12,199 on the road.
The bikes were unveiled at the weekend’s BSB round at Silverstone, where Honda’s Dan Linfoot and Jason O’Halloran rode them on a parade lap on race day.
Nick Campolucci, Honda’s Head of Motorcycles, said: ‘The Black special is a no-nonsense Fireblade, reflecting the Honda mantra behind the bike - that you don't always need all the bells and whistles to enjoy the ride and to obtain peak performance on-track.
‘The TT Special is an acknowledgement of the incredible success that continues to be achieved with the Fireblade. John McGuinness smashed the TT lap record last year.’
