My friend The Philosopher has raised self-deception to the level of art. "First," he says. ticking off the steps of his logic finger by finger, "I'm not gonna crash. No way. If I was going to crash, I wouldn't ride. So I don't need a helmet for protection.

Came home from working at the beach last week knowing my Yamaha was going to have to have new tennis shoes that weekend. I was in a total dilemma as to what tires to get for the way I ride, when what do I find amidst my stack of junk mail but my good ol' August subscript of CYCLE WORLD, with a great big article on street tire tests.

If you thought I sounded enthusiastic about Honda's Carburetion Manual, wait until you hear about the new (1977) Honda Electrical Manual. Everything I said about the earlier manual holds true in terms of clarity of description and excellent illustrations but the electrical manual shows many test hook-ups and procedures that can be done in the home shop—even hints on where to pick up inexpensive test components.

Some of us have been through this before. About 15 years ago the car manufacturers discovered that drivers like powerful cars. So they began to make powerful cars. Then the social critics discovered that the factories were selling the public what the public wanted to buy.

KTMs are made in Austria by Kronreif and Trunkenpolz Motor-Fahrzeugbau KG. With a corporate name like that it's no wonder they are marketed simply as KTM (formerly Penton on the east coast). KTMs are common in the winner's circle at both enduros and motocross.

Grudge night at the drags. Pay $2, sign on the dotted line and you get to face off against your buddies in a real, no-if-ands-or-buts race on a real dragstrip. Find out just how fast your bike really is, discover what 120 mph feels like, all perfectly legal, without bothersome police or confusing corners getting in the way of the fun.

The Kawasaki Z1-R is a mean, aggressive-looking motorcycle right off the showroom floor. Fitted with a Yoshimura Stage II performance kit, the bike's behavior matches its looks perfectly: violent. Everything starts to happen at 5500 rpm.

A GS1000 is a strong street bike. An R.C. 1176cc GS1000 gives new meaning to the word lunge. You can't tell from appearances. The motorcycle looks stock except for the R.C. exhaust system and wheelie-bar brackets welded onto the swing arm. Even after starting the engine, the changes aren't immediately obvious.

Comebacks are catastrophes. Most people are not in a position to make them, and the ones that are usually shouldn't. Particularly not the ones loosely referred to as legends. Most legends are dead, or shelved. People like them like that. And heroes are absolute.

Montesa. Chances are if you started racing motocross within the last couple of years, you have never ridden one. You may not even have had the chance to look at one up close. And a shame it is. The new Cappras are fine hikes. It is truly refreshing to look at a motorcross bike that is different.

"Skip's carbs were tumbling down the track and I hit them, went about six feet into the air. It cracked the wheel. Lucky I had a tube." Mike Baldwin, a privateer riding his own bought-and-paid-for TZ750 Yamaha. had just won the AMA Grand National/Camel Pro Series road race at Sears Point Raceway, near San Francisco.

Bearings are intended to support and locate rotating mechanical bits—in a word, shafts. This they do with varying degrees of precision and/or efficiency. Their design is dictated by many things, not the least of which is cost. There are bearings in your motorcycle's engine, gearbox, steering head, swing arm pivot, and wheels, just to hit upon the obvious.

The reason I know it didn't happen in 1972 is because I was riding a Moto Guzzi Ambassador that year. And the reason I know it didn't happen in 1974 is because that is the year BMW put an auto-lock on its starter systems so you couldn't start a Beemer in gear unless you held the clutch lever in, and if my bike had had this setup there'd be nothing to recall after all these years.

Whatever Hank Scott and tuner Carl Patrick did to their XR750 during intermission at the Sacramento Mile, worked. Sacramento is a revival on the Camel Pro Series schedule. The old track Sacramento was closed eight years ago. Then the California Exposition provided a mile track, a classic horse track, and promoter J.C. Agajanian took a chance and brought motorcycle racing back to the state Capitol.

Years of trail riding had passed beneath my wheels before I finally came to the day when I decided I really had to find some new and interesting riding. Between friends who knew where to ride, and hearsay about this or that place, and later on taking part in enduros, which offered pre-planned, marked routes, I'd never felt much pressure to discover anything new on my own.
