CYCLE WORLD and Western Airlines have really started something. We’ve worked an arrangement with the famous airlines of the west to co-sponsor several air tours during the next few months. The first two leave for Hawaii, one on November 22, the other on January 24, 1970.

IT is getting near that time of year when the American Motorcycle Association has an annual meeting to decide the rules and policies for the next competition year. This will be the second meeting of the Competition Congress, which consists of some 60 members from all branches of our sport and industry.

My 1968 Honda CL 90 has developed a shifting problem. At 3000 miles, shifting from first to second was very difficult. At approximately 4000 miles, a loud crash accompanied every shift into second, both up-shift and down, although more often a neutral is found when down-shifting.

I have a problem and I wish you would solve it for me. What’s better, the Kawasaki 250 or the Suzuki 250? GARY COOPER Piedmont, Calif. What is “better” depends on what you like in a motorcycle. We suggest to you and other readers who have asked the same type of question that you get a demonstration ride on the bikes in question, read our road tests and make your own decisions.

IF ROMAN GODS rode motorcycles, the Moto Guzzi would surely be the choice of Bacchus. It oozes pleasure and fleshy affluence. It is a big, stylish and strong road machine that reeks of luxurious plenty; a genuine ultra-bike. The new Moto Guzzi is a good deal faster than last year's offering, but retains the plushiness necessary to a heavyweight, high speed tourer.

BOOK REVIEW
THE VINTAGE YEARS AT BROOKLANDS
[no value]
[no value]
DOCTOR JOSEPH BAYLEY
In the early 1920s, Brooklands was the only true race track in England. This was the proving ground of British engineering and machinery, which at that time was so fiercely competitive. “The Vintage Years At Brooklands” is a unique photographic history of the men and their motorcycles who earned fame and glory at that renowned raceway.

SO WHAT’S SO BAD with duding up a workhorse? You’ve seen those big, hairy-hocked Clydesdale horses with feathers and plumes on them. Nothing fruity about that. And they pull those big beer wagons around rather well. So just because the Pioneer has some style, don’t think it hasn’t got what it takes.

IT WAS NOT a record meet, but nonetheless the all-bike AHRA drags at California's Lions strip drew more than 150 competitors from all parts of the country to share the $1500 purse. As AHRA rules split the bikes into 30 classes, everyone had a good chance at the pot.

JOHN EDWARD CHARLES
THE OLD MAN lay on the enormous bed, withered and drawn. The stillness of his darkened room was broken from time to time by the restless shadows of children grown. For death was a matter of waiting. He was three months past 89 years and curiously the only thought that filled his fading mind was the image of his first motorcycle.

A PROMINENT psychoanalyst once opined that a man’s desires evolve through three basic stages. The youth wants to indulge his senses. Then, as he grows he wants to be rich (presumably to better indulge his senses). The final stage, that of the Mature Man, is the hunger for power.

HEARTBREAK is the key word for the AMA 50-lap National TT. It's a long race, and the big jump at Ascot Park manages to tear up a lot of machinery. So it was that Harley-Davidson's Mark Brelsford won, after all the usual favorites had retired along the way.

OSSA is a relative newcomer to the international motorcycling scene, but, in just four years, this Spanish marque has established an enviable reputation among the world’s sporting-minded riders. The story of this innovative concern is a fascinating tale of remarkable men who love the sport, and they, perhaps more than the technical excellence of their wares, are a most interesting aspect of Ossa’s history.

DAN HUNT
NEIL KEEN: racer. Inveterate. Incorrigible. Irrepressible. But not just a racer. His mind ranges over a thousand subjects. We walk through a Pennsylvania meadow and his attention fixes on a cow, or a homely little flower too insignificant to be seen, almost with the same intensity of observation he brings to an analytic perusal of the suspension on Mert Lawwill's Harley tracker.

RACING ON THE MILE was not quite the same without Harley team rider Freddy Nix, who died in an automobile accident a week before the running of Santa Rosa. Perhaps the most fitting epitaph for this 27-year-old rider, an impeccable master of mile dirt track and short track alike, was spoken by fellow Expert Neil Keen shortly before Freddy’s death: “Day in and day out Fred Nix is the best track racer today.

At the Grand Prix of Canada, a sandy-haired youngster stared through a peephole in a maze of racing types and passed comment to his big brother; “Boy, that guy Duff sure is making a comeback.” His brother, obviously more familiar with Mike Duff, road racer, smiled and replied, “He’s not making a comeback; he’s just catching up.” And that about sums up the race and, in fact, the Ontario road racing season so far for Mike Duff.

$11.95;
Many Honda owners will be glad to know there is a carrier for overlay type trail sprockets available for models CL-77, CL-160, CL-175 and CL-350. Instead of carrying your dirt sprocket to the boonies strapped on the back of your bike, and then hassling with bolting and unbolting the rear wheel, you can keep the sprocket where it belongs: on the wheel. This allows you to convert your street scrambler to a genuine boondocker quickly and easily. This sprocket carrier is designed to be mounted inboard of’the drive sprocket on the rear wheel and uses only standard factory sprockets. With the exception of drilling four 0.25-in. holes in the drive sprocket, no modifications are needed and complete instructions are included with the carrier. Order direct (check or money order) from A-W Products Co., Dept. CW-10, P.O. Box 414, Loveland, CO 80537. The cost is $11.95; Colorado residents add 3 percent sales tax.
KAWASAKI
SQUEEZE-ACTION RATCHET
$12.95
A good deal of valuable time and effort can be wasted if the correct tool is not available for that special job. This squeeze-action ratchet wrench is just the thing for hard-to-reach places. To operate the wrench, merely squeeze the spring-loaded handle and that hidden nut or bolt is no longer inaccessible. And where there is more room, it can be used as a conventional ratcheting box wrench. For reverse action, just turn the tool over. While the box socket is one-half inch, 12 hex inserts range from one-quarter through seven-sixteenths inch, and metric inserts are available from 6 through 11 mm. Priced at $12.95, the wrench can be ordered from The Jay-Thomas Company, Dept.CW-10, 117 West Oxford St., Chula Vista, CA 92011.

B.R. NICHOLLS
It has been a slack time for world championship motocross, and Joel Robert must be thankful for that. Currently leading the title chase with five clear wins and four rounds to go, he went to the British event intent on making it six. But a simple practice spill twisted a knee, the same leg injured earlier in the season, and prevented him from scoring.
