Allan Girdler
Early on one frosty morning I was half-way up the hill from the ocean, running with the traffic, 6 thou showing on the tach, when I rolled off a fraction, looked around and thought “How things have changed.” When I first began hanging around this magazine, back about the time Harley-Davidson invented the overhead valve, I knew from nothing about sophisticated motorcycles.

I just finished reading your answer to Chris Folk’s letter in your February, 1980 edition. Now while a ’75 H-2 may have run a 13.06 quarter mile, a ’72 H-2 runs 12.2 et at 110 mph, a mark that has never been equalled by any other 750 (and damn few of any size).

Knowing full well trials riders and trials fans will buy this book no matter what we say about it, we decided to review it for you other folks—the non-plonkers, so to speak. Actually any motorcycle enthusiast would enjoy reading about Mick Andrews, five-time winner of the Scottish Six Day and twice World Champion.

Styling has been with us since Eve first blushed and no doubt wouldn’t wear what was on the racks. It’s simply part of the scheme of things. Motorcyclists aren’t immune from it but it causes no harm until it affects our motorcycles. And of course it always does.

Whatever you use as your personal measure of high performance, forget it. The new, 16-valve, fourcylinder, dohc Suzuki GS1100 is the quickest and fastest 1980 motorcycle you can buy. It is the best all-around superbike in history.

Ever since the factories got serious about motocross, open class bikes have been bears to ride. The 250s are the median, the normal. In most cases open machines have been based on the 250s, which usually means that a good frame and suspension get more power and weight than they can handle.

Honda didn’t invent the touring motorcycle, although a look around the parking area of any major touring event makes one wonder. What Honda did do when it introduced the Gold Wing in 1975 was specialize a touring motorcycle to American tastes.

Honda's GL1000. "Is it competition for the Harley, or is it in a class all by itself?" we asked when we first tested it (April, 1975). And what about BMW and Moto Guzzi? Tourers can choose an inline V-Twin with chain drive, a transverse V-Twin with shaft drive, an air-cooled, shaft drive opposed Twin or the Honda’s water-cooled, shaft drive, opposed Four.

Long gone is the time when the major Japanese motorcycle manufacturers were battling it out in combat on the showroom floors and racetracks with 50cc and l00cc and 125cc motorcycles. The basic motorcycle went from 100 to 250 to 350 to 500 to 750ccs and with each increase there was a smaller and smaller selection of small street motorcycles.

Completely in keeping with its reputation as an intriguingly different motorcycle, Honda's CX500 has set three records during its term of service as a longterm workhorse. 1) It's attracted more letters from interested owners, 2) suffered the only authentic breakdown in the history of the program, and 3) rolled up more miles than any other longterm machine we've had.

Occasionally enthusiasts turn up daft enough to take a crack at the Land Speed Record, in the old days more for the pleasure of it than anything else (this attitude can still be found in the motorcycling world Thank God) but nowadays there is a rich seam of industry, advertising, TV and licensing rights to be mined.

From time to time we like to show you an exercise in style and grace which stands out from lesser breeds as a Chanel original does from discount house muu muus. (Voice from the parts room, “how many cylinders does a Chanel have?”) Style is not easily acquired nor is it generally the result of a conscious effort in design; one has to look only at some of the chrome-tank English Twins of the Fifties or bloated Japanese multis to see the truth in that although everybody knows a nice girl who is as homely as the back of a bus.

Almost every part of Suzuki’s 1979 RM250N was new. The bike proved raceworthy out of the crate and many local pro riders won with virtually stock motorcycles. Most racers didn’t change things, even the shocks—which are excellent—until the parts wore out.

There’s a war going on all along the highways of America. It’s a cold war, characterized by an arms race on both sides, each one trying to find the ultimate weapon to control the other side. This war has nothing to do with Arabs or Ayatollahs or Soviets or any other far away people from Never-Never land.

Given the power of hindsight, the CW road-racing Hawk project was enough to make even us blush. Early last year, just at the beginning of the racing season, this magazine made a bold announcement: We were going to campaign a Honda Hawk, slightly modified, in hopes of doing a heroic underdog number, collecting a seasonal title in a class where everybody else figured the legendary Yamaha RD was the only way to win.

I own a 1979 Honda CBX. After reading about the changes made to the 1980’s suspension, I would like to know if these can be adapted to the ’79’s. Such as swing arm bearings, shocks, and air caps on the forks. Also, at low rpm (900—1000) I’m getting a rattling down by the clutch, which quits when the lever is pulled in or when it’s engaged.

Not SO many. years ago. motorcyclists were forced to utilize gear from other sports. Specialized motorcycle gear was almost unheard of. Gloves were especially hard to get. Finally, several different manufacturers got wise and began making gloves aimed at the motorcycle market.
