...Yamaha's been around for a _long_ time as a musical instrument maker; it's been in the US for a long time, too. Lest you think that Yamaha is a motorcycle manufacturer turned instrument maker - take a good look at the loge. Three tuning forks! They made musical instruments way before they made motorcycles (they started in 1889)...

I read somewhere that at one time the head of Yamaha sent his son abroad to countries like the US to learn their instrument manufacturing techniques. However the young man became enamoured of motorcyles and took that technology home instead! The father was a bit annoyed to say the least but they were quite successful with motorcyles.
