Rules that still apply to this day.... take heed. Especially the part about melodiously tooteling the horn with vigor and saying Hi Hi.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Now that's funny. I sure would hate to get a festive dog entangled up in my spokes.

Some of those NEED explaining.
"Passenger of the foot"?

Tootel him with vigor and express by word of mouth, warning. Hi Hi -- ( :?: ) NOT NOT

In the 60's, reading Japanese motorcycle manuals was a great source of entertainment. I remember the "tootle him with vigor" phrase from Honda 50 manual.

Well, it's not just the Japanese that seem to have trouble finding reliable interpreters! Here's an extract from a brochure for a Beijing hotel - if you were bored staying there, the brochure could keep you amused for a while!

"*Getting There:*

Our representative will make you wait at the airport. The bus to the hotel runs along the lake shore. Soon you will feel pleasure in passing water. You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend. The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries to have intercourse with all new guests.

*The hotel:*

This is a family hotel, so children are very welcome. We of course are always pleased to accept adultery. Highly skilled nurses are available in the evenings to put down your children. Guests are invited to conjugate in the bar and expose themselves to others. But please note that ladies are not allowed to have babies in the bar. We organize social games, so no guest is ever left alone to play with them self.

*The Restaurant:*

Our menus have been carefully chosen to be ordinary and unexciting. At dinner, our quartet will circulate from table to table, and fiddle with you.

*Your Room:*

Every room has excellent facilities for your private parts. In winter, every room is on heat. Each room has a balcony offering views of outstanding obscenity! You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, since the road between the hotel and the lake is used only by pederasts.

*Bed*

Your bed has been made in accordance with local tradition. If you have any other ideas please ring for the chambermaid. Please take advantage of her. She will be very pleased to squash your shirts, blouses and underwear. If asked, she will also squeeze your trousers.

*Above all:*

When you leave us at the end of your holiday, you will have no hope. You will struggle to forget it."

That's really funny!!
My own example goes back to the sixties when I owned a '67 Honda 305 Dream.
In the owners manual, the section explaining how to engage the clutch
said, "Unhand the friction kindly". LOL!!
