Thanks to all contributors for this thread and the Wikipedia articles - really interesting stuff for we 'newbies' to the RL fold.

Of course very special Thanks, Admiration, and Respect for Gary Flint and all of his team …. the incredibly innovative features of the original G1 being the clearly still-evident roots of the G2 that I've quickly come to love.

Great Ideas survive the test of time; ~14+ years is no small feat in the modern automotive world.

If I am not mistaken... at the 2:50 mark going up the 28% grade hill Gary hits the cruise control instead of the VSA... now I believe in the video he had some (medical issues?) cracked rib kept him from reaching the button...

If he hadn't hit that button accidentally, and Honda played this video at a kiosk in dealerships, sales would have hit the roof. I've always loved watching this video and am so glad to see it again. Many thanks! I always chuckle when Gary says 5,000 square foot ranch at the beginning. Probably meant acre.
