Your August “Roundup” column discussed the Environmental Protection Agency’s planned noise emission regulations for motorcycles and contains several inaccuracies which should be brought to your readers’ attention. The column would seem somewhat premature since, contrary to statements which were made, the Agency has not yet proposed motorcycle noise standards.

Yes. relations between the Feds and the motorcycle industry (such as it is) are harmonious compared to the Car Wars, but is that a thing to be praised or regretted? More to the point, what can you. as rider and motorcycle buyer, expect out of the tightening web of government regulation?

Italian motorcycles are, well, different. Always have been. From past until the present, from the days when the American companies vied to see which could make a large V-Twin and all the English builders had wars over which 500cc Twin was better than the dozen from down the road, right up to the sure knowledge that the Big Four Japanese factories will compete in terms of bigger Fours, Italian motorcycle makers have followed their own instincts.

Figures and comparisons in the normal vein have no meaning here, so any reader tempted to consider this as simply another 500cc Twin is advised at the outset not to continue.

Footwear has long been a problem for the daily and touring rider. Shoes aren't safe, they quickly become scuffed and stained and the wind flaps your legs without mercy. Work or hiking boots are clumsy and don't look right in the office. Racing boots are generally fragile and don't hold up to daily use.
