Vintage racing is not at all like the Real Thing. There I was, cranked full over in the sweeping righthander, aimed toward the apex, locked in a duel for 24th place and all I could think of was, Lord, ain’t that Vincent a strange machine. The Black Shadow, my rival of the moment, was cornering in a series of self-induced arcs, gronk, gronk, gronk.

This is a complaint, not about you. but TV. I watch "CHiPs" on our local station to humor my kids and it burns me up more each time I watch it. The side by side riding shown on every program is probably one of the worst parts. We just had a young man cream his new Gold Wing with the same process.

Henry N. Manney III
Looking at this pocket-book sized volume of some 328 pp, the reviewer is apt to say well there goes Bagnall trying to shift a lot of old rubbish out of the back of the warehouse again as the book is mostly about Harleys. Indians and Mustang semiscooters.

Waiting in line for gasoline last weekend. three test riders on a photo shoot had not read the U.S. Department of Energy’s Response Plan for reducing petroleum consumption. They didn't know that the amount of petroleum being produced and imported to this country exceeded the amount of petroleum products being consumed at that time.

One problem with being an athlete of any sort is the early age of retirement. Having been the fastest or strongest or most agile, it can be difficult for some athletes to step down from the throne and from the throne and take up a normal life with normal rewards replacing the honors of first place finishes.

When Kawasaki got back into the serious dirt bike business last year, the new machines were motocrossers, the KX125 and KX250. Not bad. either, so the enduro and play bike crowd naturally figured that when the Green Machine did some enduro machines, they'd be based on the motocross models, just like tradition calls for.

The Saga of Vance and Hines
Pro Stock’s Top Team Has Come a Long Way in a Short While

John Ulrich
Nine years ago. Byron Hines was lacing wheels for a living, had never worked as a mechanic, and had no experience building racing engines. Today, Hines, 29, is the performance mastermind behind Terry Vance's Pro Stock Suzuki, Russ Collins' 199.55 mph V-8 (built with two CB750 top ends) Top Fuel Honda, a blown single-engine GS1000 Top Fueler still being constructed for Vance, 25, to ride, and myriad R.C. products and modifications.

Ron Griewe
Hondas's 500cc four-stroke has been wished for by many off-road and trail riders for several years. Everyone knew Honda had the technical knowledge and foresight to build a dynamite 500 class four-stroke the right way. Undoubtedly the engineers at Honda had closely studied the Baja-winning Bill Bell C&J Hondas.

Wanna get more horsepower, increase engine life, get better gas mileage, lower engine temperature, use less oil, and get easier starting? What an elixer that would take. Yet manufacturers of synthetic oils for four-strokes claim their products offer these and other benefits.

Thousands of Kawasaki owners throughout the world have been wondering for several years if somehow, somewhere there was a cure for the handling ills their bikes suffered at racetrack speeds. The Bimota KB1 comes hot on the tail of the ultra-radical cranked monoshocked, space framed, super-steering Suzuki SB2 special as the possible mass-production panacea for the four-cylinder Kawasakis.
