Over the last few months I’ve read of your editor’s noble attempts to keep his vintage dual-purpose Japanese motorcycle running. I am sympathetic to so noble a cause. In our throw-away, obsolete-tomorrow culture, loyalty to a trusted friend is not often found.

When we last heard from our friend Robert Runyard he was patiently waiting for his motorcycle to join him in Medellin, Colombia. That was three issues ago. Runyard has since been reunited with his Yamaha 650 long enough for the ride to Tierra del Fuego.

BMW's new R65 may be the company's most significant new model since the original four-stroke, horizontally - opposed, shaft-driven Twin of 1923. After years of ever-larger engines and innovations for the top-of-the-line BMWs, the R65 is smaller, lighter, more versatile, better handling and more fun than any of its larger brothers.

Last year, we had science. Three volunteers of varying tolerances wrapped up in selections of cold-weather gear, collected watches and ther-mometers and trooped into a controlled environment, a frozen food warehouse. Along with runny noses, they got some useful baseline data about clothing and cold and measuring how the former works with the latter.

Sport touring riders make good arguments for their form of travel; less bulk, as the architect said about something else, equals more fun. The full dress traveler, though, can always counter with the fact that living out of, say, a tank bag limits the sports fan to what he can cram inside the bag, which in most cases isn’t all that much.

Steve Baker stood in the Laguna Seca pits after qualifying, gestured at his Yamaha Motor Canada-sponsored works OW31, and talked about his disappointing F750 season riding an Olio Fiat TZ750. “These bikes weigh about 30 or 40 pounds less than the standard TZ750s,” said Baker.

Heat is what makes an engine operate, whether it’s a motorcycle engine, steam engine or nuclear power plant. Heat—if there’s too much of it—is also the biggest enemy your motorcycle engine has. The folks who design motorcycles know all about heat.

It really didn’t begin with the dancing girls. For that matter, they weren't really dancing girls. They were models. And the story began three weeks before that, when Don Vesco rolled his streamlined motorcycle off a trailer and motored around Bonneville Salt Flats at 250 mph without so much as a fouled spark plug.

Because the Honda Gold Wing is a touring bike and because most touring motorcyclists equip their motorcycles with all manner of optional equipment, the GL tested by CYCLE WORLD a couple of months ago has since been equipped as many touring riders would choose—with everything.

BOOTS
The latest in fastening systems is incorporated in these hand-crafted Italian motocross and enduro boots. They have no buckles to jam with mud to make fastening or unfastening difficult. To hook, pull back on the reinforced rubber straps and stretch over the nylon hook posts. Quick and easy. The positive pressure exerted by the elastic straps provides a firm fit that allows the boot to adjust to varying foot positions and maintain comfort. The boots are available with either a smooth MX sole or cleated lug soles for enduro use. Both types are provided with metal protector caps at front and padded glove-leather cushioning around the top. Basic color of the boots is black, with front panel and rear trim in red. Both styles are available in half-sizes from 7½ thru 12. If your local dealer doesn’t have them contact Accessory Distributors, Inc., CW-12 175 Fair St., Palisades Park, N.J. 07650. Telephone (201 ) 947-8200 for a dealer near you.

ELECTRONIC IGNITION SYSTEM
$100
Per-Fux has introduced a solid state electronic ignition system for touring/high performance motorcycles. Based on an electronic module that has been proven with over 10 million trouble free miles in commercial fleet and industrial applications, the Ignitor for motorcycles has been tour-tested with outstanding results. The unit fits completely inside the stock ignition housing and requires only two wires. There are no “black boxes” or external components required. The Ignitors uses the Hall-Cell effect and will fire to 0 rpm. Extended plug life, improve performance and increased gas mileage are a few of the claimed benefits that this unit will produce. Installation is easy, according to the detailed instructions, “if you can change a set of points, you can install an Ignitor.” Available for Honda (including the Gold Wing), Kawasaki, Harley-Davidson, Yamaha, Suzuki and BMW, the Per-Lux Ignitor has a recommend list price of under $100. For more information, send for a free brochure that includes tour-test results and technical information. Write to Per-Lux, Inc., Motorcycle Products Division, CW-12, 1242 E. Edna Pl., Covina, Calif. 91732 Telephone: (213) 331-4801.
