Rialto, Calif., is one of the smaller suburbs sandwiched between two larger suburbs of Los Angeles. On the roadmap, the city is indicated in the finer print-it's a dot, not a square. But, Rialto put itself on the motorcyclists' map the other day with dedication of a trials and training course to the young people of the city.

It is now about the right time to try something new in PR with the non-motorcycling public. Recently the major controversy has been over helmet laws which do infringe on personal choice, but can be tolerated while we seek to educate the public. I do commend those motorcyclists who have rallied against ridiculous seat belt laws and the like, but while this rallying is going on (and being interpreted by the well-meaning public as negativism) we must be positive as well.

Every time a group of motorcyclists gathers, the subject of increasing engine output invariably comes up. As night follows day, someone always states the first step to performance is removal of the muffler or replacement with a megaphone, etc. Please settle a universal argument which, if I am correct in my convictions, will also boost public relations for cyclists by reducing the racket associated with cycles.

I would like to say a few words about the helmet controversy. We here in Asmara, Ethiopia (Africa), are required to wear full coverage helmets whenever we operate a motorcycle. We are further required to wear boots and a shield or goggles, and to ride in pairs when we go off the mountain.

HOW great it is to watch a rider of Sammy Miller's caliber. Despite the speed differences, the spectator experiences the same feeling while watching Gary Nixon put in a fast lap on a mile dirt track, or Calvin Rayborn toss his KR around a twisty road race circuit.

AN ALL-AMERICAN heavyweight could hardly be more distant in concept from a lightweight Italian sportsbike. The Harley-Davidson Electra Glide gloats in noisebarfing majesty, as its V-Twin engine devours freeway miles. Simplicity and agility mark the Mediterranean motorcycle, a lithe mount for sprints through crowded streets, or tempestuous dashes along twisting byways.

GEOFFREY WOOD
THE HISTORY of a motorcycle manufacturing company has often begun in some unusual ways, but the establishment of Greeves is unique. The manufacturing of a gasoline engine powered wheelchair for severely disabled people may not seem to be the way to start a motorbike business, but, nevertheless, that is exactly how one Britisher made his mark in the world of two-wheeled sport.

No one will ever know the answers, yet sports fans conduct a trillion bench racing laps a year in "greatest ever" arguments.

SMALL displacement motorcycles are heading for the brush in droves-in beds of pickups, strapped to camper rears, and in trailers. This one, the Suzuki KT120 Trail, is just a little different-it can be ridden to the boondocks, if the distance isn't too great, then, with the flick of a heel lever, can be transformed for a thrash in the bush.

I DON'T REALLY know why I first decided to do it. You know how it is when you ride a bike somewhere that everybody else reaches by car, and when you get there they sort of look enviously at you a little bit at first? Then they regain control, smile a superior smile, and give you some opening gambit like, "Whaddya do with that thing inna wintertime?" Just once I wanted to say, "I ride it."

SUZY THIRKELL has what she thinks is a good idea to save time and avoid traffic congestion. Bright and early she mounts her electric scooter and rides off to her job. The first time the miniskirted miss did so, the sight turned the heads of most of the men on the street. And, eyes really popped when Suzy reached the exclusive London store that houses the boutique in which she works-because Suzy just kept going. Her faintly whining scooter progressed sedately across the sidewalk, past a speechless doorman, along the aisles of the store's main floor, and into the elevator, which bore Suzy and bike to the proper floor. "It's great," says Suzy. "I don't have to run for a bus, and I'm early for a change." Suzy's all-electric "City Bike" is powered

E. WARNER
PURE ECSTASY is the rule of the day while riding a fine dirt bike at high speeds over extremely rough ground, avoiding rocks and holes, steering into and out of winding turns, coming over a sudden rise in the ground with a long controlled wheelie, becoming airborne, then touching down again with the rear wheel first, and always in absolute control.

Four world championship solo races and two double winners-those are the facts about this year's Irish classic, the Ulster Grand Prix. Little Bill Ivy took both 125 and 250 events, and Giacomo Agostini again was top man in the 350 and 500 races.

AIRGUARD GAUGES
$1
Airguard Engineering offers a simple and cheap device that provides at-a-glance notice of an underinflated tire. Named Mini-Gauge, the tiny device, 1 in. in length, screws onto the valve stem of a tire, and exposes a miniature button when air pressure is correct. The button retracts under a pressure loss of as little as 2 psi. Priced at only $1 each, Mini-Gauges are claimed to be weatherproof and leakproof. They fit all types of motorcycle, automobile, and truck tire stem threads. The gauges are pre-set to specified pressures of between 22 and 100 psi. Starting at 22 psi, the gauges are available in increments of 2 psi up to 32 psi, and in 5 psi increments from 40 to 100 psi. Airguard Engineering, Dept. CW-11, P.O. Box 4711, North Hollywood, CA 91607, is the manufacturer.

EXTRAS FOR AMALS
$1.25
Barnes Enterprizes offers three new products designed to improve the performance of Amal Concentric carburetors. A set comprised of an extended throttle adjusting screw, and an extended idle adjustment screw is priced at $2.25. These components enable screw settings to be altered by hand. The standard Amal screws are set flush with the carburetor body, and require a screwdriver to effect adjustments. An adjustable float needle, intended to replace the original non-adjustable item, is available for $2.25. It is particularly useful for twin-carburetored machines, on which each carburetor requires individual attention. The Barnes float needle is claimed to eliminate flooding and excessive mixture leanness. An extended pilot jet, priced at $1.25, remains submerged in the fuel during acceleration, braking, cornering, and up and down grades, and thus provides an even fuel flow under all conditions. All three products are easily attached, and will fit all sizes of Amal Concentric carburetors. The company's range of motorcycle accessories varies from bash plates to fork braces. Priced at $6.95, the braces are formed of chromium plated steel. They fit the BSA Victor and 500 and 650 BSA Twin, Triumph Twin, Hodaka, Kawasaki 120, several Honda models from the 90 to the 305, Suzuki 80 and 250, and 80, 100, and 250 DTI Yamaha. Two-stage, washable element air cleaners also are available for a wide range of machines. Prices vary from $2.49 for a replacement element for a Bultaco Metralla, to $16.50 for a complete pair of cleaners for the Honda CB and CL series. Four different types of air cleaner are offered for Hodaka machines alone. Bash plates, from $6.95, also fit a wide variety of machines. A tuned competition exhaust system for BSA Victor and Triumph 250-cc Trophy models is priced at $15.95. Barnes Enterprizes, Dept. CW-11, 1046 E. Hyde Park Blvd., Inglewood, CA 90302, will supply additional details and prices.

INTER-AM THREADS
$2
A&A Manufacturing, of Redwood City, Calif., has produced a line of T-shirts to mark the Inter-Am race series, when Europe's leading motocross aces this fall will appear at events throughout the United States. The shirts will carry action designs of four of the European riders—Torsten Hallman, Joel Robert, Dave Bickers, and Roger de Costereach in characteristically "impossible" situations. Priced at approximately $2 each, the shirts are available in small, medium, large, and extra large sizes. They are marketed through MED International, Dept. CW-11, 4790 Palm Ave., La Mesa, CA 92041, but may also be purchased at the Inter-Am race venues (for race dates and locations see Inter-Am advertisement, page 74). A&A Manufacturing, Dept. CW-11, 2771 El Camino, Redwood City, CA 94063, welcomes inquiries from promoters, dealers and clubs who may be interested in marketing the shirts. The company also specializes in T-shirts, sweatshirts, and jackets bearing made-to-order emblems. A&A's staff artists will produce emblems to order.

NEW KAWASAKI
Kawasaki has made extensive revisions to its 250-class single-cylinder scrambler, introduced last year. Named the "238 Special," the new model produces a full 30 bhp at 7000 rpm, and 22.7 lb.-ft. of torque at 6750 rpm. The company also says that total weight has been reduced to 215 lb. The disc valve two-stroke features an alloy cylinder with iron liner, and a 7.8:1 compression ratio. Bore and stroke dimensions of 70 by 62 mm give a piston displacement of 238 cc. A four-speed gearbox, and magneto ignition-including lighting coils—also are fitted. Improvements over the previous model include a larger carburetor, a new steel rotary valve, a new alloy rotary valve casing, an enlarged and vented carburetor cover, a modified expansion chamber, and a new piston. The duplex frame is gusseted for additional strength, and stronger wheel spokes are fitted. The new model is available from dealers, and a color brochure is offered by Eastern Kawasaki Motorcycle Corp., Dept. CW-11, 3 Production Way, Avenel, NJ 07001, or from American Kawasaki, Dept. CW-11, 15205 S. Main St., Gardena, CA 90247.

BASHING IDEA
$37.70
A new idea in bash plates is announced by Moto-Dyne, Dept. CW-11, Dept. 8, 17231 Prairie St., Northridge, CA 91324. The plates are molded from a synthetic material belonging to the plastics family that, says the company, is virtually indestructible. A feature of the material is that it offers great resiliency to blows. If it is dented, it usually can be knocked back to its original shape. Strong aluminum castings form the mounting brackets, and the entire unit is very light. The shields are available for Triumph and Husqvarna models, at $37.70 and $28.95, respectively. Plates for other machines soon will be available.

LIGHTWEIGHT CATALOG
$1
Roehr Bros.' new catalog has been produced to cope with typical questions which the company has received from motorcyclists. The 16-page booklet, priced at $1, deals particularly with lightweight and trail bikes. Full details are included on Roehr Bros.' new fork kits for Bridgestone, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, Hodaka and Honda models of up to 120-cc piston displacement. The hard chromed forks offer 5.25 in. of travel, and are provided with 8.25-in. long progressively wound springs. A two-way damping control valve is installed. The kits are priced at $39.95 for all machines listed, and no exchange of the original fork is necessary. Claimed to offer increased ground clearance and travel, and a more comfortable, controlled ride over bumps, the forks are designed to be used with standard wheels, axles, and mounting components. The catalog includes special sections for Hodaka, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Mon tesa, Suzuki and Bridgestone machines. Performance parts are offered for Yamahas of up to 350 cc, and Kawasakis of up to 238 cc. Included among a wide range of other parts are two-stroke cylinder barrels with additional transfer ports. The catalog is available from Roehr Bros., Inc., Dept. CW-11, 317 No. Victory Blvd., Burbank, CA 91502.

Suzuki soon will market a 50-cc racer, the TR50. This machine is a high performance development of the MR50, which was introduced a short time ago. The TR50 will be manufactured only on special order. As road racing is increasing in popularity in Japan, as are the number of privately owned and tuned racing machines, Suzuki managements believes a broad market awaits the TR50.
