MOST MOTORCYCLE factories are looking back on 1975 as a year of overproduction and sales frustration. Most that is, but not all. Kawasaki is a notable exception because in this hectic year it pulled firmly ahead of Suzuki and is currently running neck and neck with Yamaha for the number two sales position behind Honda.

I am writing in response to all of those articles and reader comments about noise reduction. I am the owner of a Suzuki TM250 and a Yamaha 360 Enduro (1971). I would like to put in my two bits worth for noise. I have been riding the street now everyday for about a year and a half.

I read every publication available in my area that covers dirt bikes and can readily see why your magazine is rated number one. Your approach is very professional, dealing with specifics and not generalities as most magazines tend to do. Your opinions are supported with facts and I have used many articles from your mag in preparing my bike for the weekly battle (motocross).

SPEAKING of Honda, I don’t know whether I was or not, though it’s pretty hard not to, they just paid 20-million yen for various projects performed by assorted employees for the 5th annual Honda Idea Contest. The ideas entered need not have practical applications.

THE TERM COMMUTER BIKE, or commuter special, has become more familiar of late, a product of the public’s increased awareness and desire for inexpensive, basic transportation. But, thinking back, haven’t most motorcycles always fallen into this category?

Street-oriented motorcyclists have a couple of major worries: getting run down by half-blind dimwits in Chryslers, and having their motorcycles ripped off. Both fears are quite justified and real, and are to be avoided at all costs. Probably the saddest thing about both occurrences is that most of the time neither of them is the rider’s fault, yet he or she has to take all possible steps to prevent them from happening.

IT WAS NOT long ago that thumpers ruled the earth. The two-stroke was nothing more than an underpowered, smoking, unreliable, noisy contraption. But through refinement, the two-stroke is now enjoying a popularity never before seen.

WHEN THE AMA announced the schedule for the 1975 ISDT Qualifying Series, it must have shocked a pile of people. With nine full-blown events on the calendar at locations all over the United States, the would-be competitor was certain of one thing, and one thing only.

JUST WHAT IS the American Motorcycle Association? And who is it? It has been called (see CW, Feb., 1972) a flawed, unrepresentative dictatorship-worse than dead weight. Industry pawns, fence straddlers, men afraid of everything are said to be at the helm.

The incredibly fast growth of motocross racing in the U.S. is a product of the motocross fever that swept this country just a few short years ago, and that still holds it in its addictive grip. At first, the best racing was in the 500cc class. That was the classification in which the European Champions competed when they first visited.

At first, the inclination is to call the tromping that Marty Smith gave the rest of the world's finest 125cc motocrossers an upset. If you look at it in terms of who was there and where they finished, it could easily be called that. All of the Europeans are G.P. veterans.

Problem: How to turn in rocks where the rear wheel must follow the only available smooth line, and rocks make the proper front-wheel line seemingly impossible. Solution: The “floating turn,” sometimes known as a “wheelie turn” or “turning wheelie.”
