What luck!” I said to myself as I rode out of the rain and up to the front door of the hotel. As suits one of the finer hotels in our area, this one has a marquee, an impressive structure all the way across the drive. Fine place to park in the rain and not only was there a sheltered bike-sized spot across from the front door, behind the spot was parked an older Corvette, which I recognized as belonging to a friend.

Having been an avid motorcycle enthusiast for 15 years, I would like to congratulate you on your magazine. Your concisely written tests, unbiased opinions, and entertaining articles are well appreciated. In your February, 1979 issue, “Computer Motorcycle Testing” article, please remember in this computerized world that few computers own or ride motorcycles.

About a year ago we evaluated a new air pump from S&W. Called the Mini Pump, it fit easily into an enduro jacket or tool pouch. It would inflate a 3.00-21 tire in less than 2 min., and could be used for pressurizing shocks and forks. We think the Mini Pump is the greatest, and wouldn’t think of leaving for the wilds without one.

On the surface, a meeting called by Transportation Secretary Brock Adams so automobile industry leaders could discuss the design of the "car of the future," should have little to do with motorcycles. But there's a connection. A number of reasonable people met at the two-day session to “re-invent the car,” in Adams' words.

Like all other forward-thinking motorcycle manufacturers, Suzuki last year watched the sales of Yamaha Specials climb out of sight. And like all the other forward-thinking motorcycle manufacturers in Japan, this year Suzuki has introduced its own Specials.

Middle children have it tough. The biggest kid in the family gets the headlines and is instantly appointed the leader. All the good stuff begins at the top and the biggest has the prestige (and muscle) to keep the others in line. The littlest arrives with a built-in excuse; he may not be able to do things as well, but then he’s the baby of the family and gets attention because he's so cute.

In every issue of Cycle World, we report on how various motorcycles perform when new. We run them on the track, ride them on the street and through the canyons. Then we strip them down to reveal inner strengths and weaknesses. But our investigations can’t tell us how well a machine will hold up after the shine fades and the odo rolls into the thousands.

Trials bikes would look very different today had not Francisco Xavier Bulto in 1964 invited Sammy Miller to spend a few days at the Bultaco factory in Barcelona. The few days stretched to 12 and at the end of his stay, Sammy rolled the prototype Sherpa T out in front of the factory engineers and Señor Bulto.

The first Hugon fairing I saw was on a Yamaha XS750 piloted by an artist friend. Unfortunately, he became so enthralled with mentally painting the Marin County landscape that he ran the bike into the back of a stopped car. The Lexan fairing escaped with only scratches.

One Year With A 1978 Maico 450 Magnum
The Big Maico Motocrosser is an Excellent Desert Bike

Ron Griewe
Early in 1978 we tested a new 450 Maico Magnum motocrosser. All the test riders were highly impressed with the Magnum's cornering and good handling. The big 450 engine had so much torque it seemed only right to try the machine in the desert, and to no one's surprise it worked as well in the desert as it did on a motocross course.

I own a 1976 Honda CB400F on which I’ve installed a Dyna-III electronic ignition. It’s keeping the battery discharged, to the point that the electric start and turn signals won’t work. A fast workout on the highway will cure this, but only for an hour or so.

SUPER LIGHT PISTONS
New from Wiseco are forged, super light pistons for Suzuki, Yamaha and Honda 125 motocrossers. The piston walls are thinner than normal, reducing weight and allowing greater engine rpm and response. Two chrome-plated, Swedish steel rings measuring 0.024 in. are used. Greater piston skirt control, better combustion heat transfer, improved compression, and increased horsepower are claimed. The pistons are available in sizes from standard to .080 in. oversize. Contact Wiseco Piston, CW-7, 7201 Industrial Park Blvd., Mentor, Ohio 44060.
