FLOYD CLYMER is dead. I never really thought I would make that statement. If anyone in the motorcycle industry was seemingly indestructible, it was good old Floyd. Born in 1895 in Berthoud, Colorado, he died instantly of heart failure while working at his desk in his home in January of 1970.

I am a 28-year-old housewife and mother of three adorable girls. My problem is that I love to ride my husband's bike (a 225-cc Sears). However, he feels this is not ladylike. I have seen several women on bikes and thought maybe if you had some statistics on female drivers you would print them.

VISITING Japan probably is my favorite pastime. This time it was to see what Suzuki has up their sleeve for racing this year (See page 56). Being the first journalist in the world ever to see the little three-cylinder grand prix engine was one of the greatest honors of my life.

I always thought it was next to impossible to start my Honda with a dead battery. When I took it to a dealer he showed me a trick. By turning the light switch to an in-between setting, he was able to get the bike running, although the battery was all the way down.

THE AMERICAN EAGLE 750 is a brawny machine with excellent road manners. Better yet, burly but graceful. Too easily, it could have turned out a lumbering leviathan, because with big bikes, comfort and accessories too often take precedence over sanity of design.

FIVE ACRES of farmland at half its market value was no surprise to Jason Boyd. He'd heard of the three previous owners' deaths, and what people were saying. But the realtor assured him that most of these local folk were from the Old Country, and had brought their superstitions with them.

WHEN THE FIM announced in 1967 that 50-cc racing engines would be limited to one cylinder and six transmission speeds, to be followed a year later by two-cylinder and six-speed restrictions for 125s, there was a loud moan from the Orient. The announcement heralded the end of one of the most incredible eras in racing.

GEOFFREY WOOD
ENGLAND is by nature a rather conservative country, yet its people often have, by the dint of sound thinking and dedication to a goal (and a paradoxical bent for creative tinkering — Ed.), achieved some noteworthy and classic results. This is especially true in the manufacturing of motorcycles, where their design innovation down through the years has been sound and progressive, while at the same time a respect for the past has been maintained that has created great legends of nostalgic proportions.

THE WORD "Africa" conjures in the minds of most Americans, visions of wild animals roaming vast grasslands and dense, hot jungles. But after spending two years traveling in South America (CW, Dec. '68-Jan '69), I was prepared to take nothing at face value and decided to see for myself.

DON KOCH
MANY MOTORCYCLISTS, like the vast majority of car owners, regard their tires with casual disregard. If there is a tread showing on the carcass and it will hold air, then the tire can roll along for a few miles more. Tire care consists of adding sufficient air to maintain a roughly circular appearance and, for the showbike enthusiast, renewing the white lettering on the raised brand name and size designation.

A FREQUENT COMPLAINT leveled at the internal combustion engine concerns piston and connecting rod movement. These vital components must be accelerated and decelerated very rapidly—at 6000 rpm the piston is forced to stop and start 200 times each second.

MOTORCYCLING is in a critical state. The immediacy of the statement may not seem readily apparent. But you can see little symptoms here and there. Anotner helmet law. A dirt track that withers in a major population area. The closing of a forest area to trail bikes.

The AMA national calendar may appear to have little to do with the road rider. But it does, in that it speaks of his loneliness and neglect. The AMA offers nothing of sporting value to him, nor does any other organization in America. The American Motorcycle Association has announced the biggest and most varied calendar to appear in its history.

The most exciting machine from Honda since the CB 750—that's what they are saying about the new CB 90. The S 90 was one of Honda's most popular bikes for many years, but the company is evidently feeling the pressure from the competition (Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki all have brand-new 90s for 1970, if you'll recall); thus they have started anew and designed a totally new machine for Honda lovers.
