AS YOU MAY or may not know, the 1966 running of the Isle of Man TT races was cancelled due to the British Seaman’s strike. I want to thank everyone who took part in the first American road racing team organized to go to Europe. Bell Toptex donated helmets, Webco had Cal-Leather whip up the most beautiful blue leathers with a white stripe you ever saw, Good Year Tire & Rubber loaded us up with tires galore, and, of course, Yamaha International was faithful to the last moment in their effort to get our TDI-Bs to the Island for the road racing show of the world.

A FAMILIAR and welcome sight for me during the recent ACA international race at Riverside was my old friend Maxie Maxsted, who for many years was the Smith’s competition representative at the Isle of Man and major European races. It is the rep’s job to see that the riders running on his equipment are well taken care of, and to this end he will always be remembered by hundreds of riders, particularly the ones from foreign countries, who needed advice or help beyond their tachometer calibration.

GENERALLY SPEAKING, motorcycles are technically more advanced, and operate at higher levels of efficiency than automobiles. Except in the area of carburetion. Most motorcycles are fitted with carburetors that are decidedly primitive in nature.

I recently purchased a BMW R69S. I understand that I can get slightly more power and weight reduction by switching to mufflers with less baffling. I don’t mind the extra noise; however, I am told that carburetor will run lean when the back pressure is reduced.

I have always felt that CYCLE WORLD is the finest magazine in its field. But at the same time — I feel if you are in error, it should be brought to the attention of the reader. So, at the risk of sounding picayunish, I would like to inform you of just such an error in the Bultaco Matador data panel, June issue.

Current world champion, Russia’s Victor Arbekov, has not scored a win since the opening round, and came to the Schifflange course in fine form, hoping to bag a win and enough points to get into contention.

THERE IS THE TEMPTATION, when one makes a first acquaintance with Kawasaki’s new 650cc tourer, to dismiss the bike as a mere copy of a certain now-superseded, British forty-inch twin. A resemblance exists, to be sure, but it is largely superficial.

THE DOT CYCLE & MOTOR MANUFACTURING COMPANY was the first concern to come up with the idea that two-strokes could devastate their big-bore counterparts by dint of superior handling, lightness and a bit of power. In fact, British rider Bill Baraugh in the early fifties ran his Dot so well against larger machines that the other riders had no choice but to protest that he was riding out of class.

THE BMW BUG bit me the first time one of those massive black machines silently passed my laboring Honda and sped into the horizon, its owner completely confident about the miles of desert driving ahead. I fearfully listened to every squeak, rattle and whimper, and estimated distances to the next ten service centers.

MIKE HAILWOOD SCORED ONE of the most decisive victories of 250cc racing in recent years during the French GP, held at Clermont-Ferrand on the twisty five-mile Circuit de Montagne d’Auvergne. This was Hailwood’s first ride on the French course since 1961 and he broke the two-year-old Read/Redman 250 record by 10.5 seconds.

IN ALL THE ANNALS of motorcycledom, a unique story standing apart from all the others is that of Soichiro Honda, the world’s largest producer of motorcycles. It is a rags to riches legend that is second to none. Born in 1906 in Hamamatsu, Japan, Soichiro grew up in a small village atmosphere where his father was a blacksmith.

THERE CAN BE LITTLE DOUBT in anyone’s mind regarding the man to beat at Carlsbad after the AMA professional road race on May 15th. For the second time at Carlsbad, Cal Rayborn, riding Andres’ Harley-Davidsons, put in a superb display of high speed motoring to carry home both lightweight and heavyweight honors.

WHAT CAN WE SAY; or do? The seamen’s strike that stopped British shipping has resulted in the cancellation of the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy races, leaving our very own Team Cycle World all dressed up with no place to go. It hurts too much to laugh; and it would be unseemly for grown men to cry.

AT THE END OF THE FIRST World War, motorcycle manufacturers hurried to reassemble their professional racing teams in order to rekindle the public’s pent-up enthusiasm for the sport, which the intervening war years had interrupted. For years, the keen competition and close finishes seen on the flat tracks in sprint and medium-length championship programs had been building motorcycle racing into a popular spectator sport.

EVEN THE MOST JADED motorcycling buff can be overwhelmed by the multitude of competition events run in the world today. Worse off is the novice, who perhaps can perceive a vague difference between riding on pavement and dirt, but no more.

DAN HUNT
LOOKING at Paul Hunt, you decide immediately that all racers have steelblue eyes which look far away, and friendly but angular faces hewn by chisel from battered wood. And when you ask him why he spent three years racing the international motocross circuit, he answers, “I’ve always enjoyed a good rough scrambles,” so you feel a bit silly for asking.

ENGLAND’S RICKMAN BROTHERS, designers and builders of the Metisse frame kits, and racers of their products in England’s motocross circus, are fast building a legend. Metisse frames with 500cc Matchless singles, and with Triumph and Norton twins, are being seen more widely in this country, even though they are expensive, difficult to find, and not, as of this writing, commercially distributed in the United States.

SUZUKI’S NEWEST COMES close to being a Suzuki 80 with a 118cc engine in it. The wheelbase is a shade longer, but most of the other components appear to be the same in each. A tubular frame member on the 80 (running from the fork crown to the base of the engine) is missing on the 118, probably accounting for the longer wheel base which must be due to the use of a larger pressed metal back bone frame.

THE TWO-DAY Greenhorn Enduro is one of those perennial events by which the U.S. brand of motorcycling has become known to the world. The reverence with which its name is uttered by foreigner and native alike is not without justification, for, contrary to the connotations of the word “greenhorn,” it is one of the toughest enduros going — just for sheer length, if nothing else.

IT IS A SOBERING thought that up until 1966, only a warring German nation had stopped the Isle of Man TT races, held each year since 1907. Now, the British seamen’s union has achieved the same end with strike action, and so our sport, which can so easily be the victim of political differences, now suffers at the hands of industrial strife.

CARLO PERELLI
THE BIGGEST, FASTEST roadster ever built by Moto Guzzi in their 45 year history, the V7 (V, meaning the cylinder arrangement and 7, the abbreviated displacement of exactly 703.717cc), was originally developed in 1964 for the Italian Traffic Police, looking for something better than their 500cc Moto Guzzi Falcone single and Gilera 300cc twin.

MIKE DUFF
THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY was a meeting at Mallory Park in England, so no time was wasted in leaving the Island. I had entered the 250, 350 and 500 classes at Mallory and it proved to be a busy day. With only four laps practice for each machine, the bikes must be right beforehand; but the 250 (without mechanics) was not going well in practice.
