Just about the time the green flag waved for the Daytona Supercross final, I was sitting in the back yard of a farm in rural Volusia County, Florida. The farmhouse has been converted into a bar, the bar is a meeting place for motorcycle enthusiasts of the type usually known as Outlaws.

Thank you for your coverage of the 1979 Pro Stock Champions. We drag racers appreciate the ink in a magazine as widely read as yours. Because Cycle World is a respected journal of motorcycling, I must ask for a retraction of the erroneous information in the Race Watch article.

Ever think you'd see signs like these? Official government messages, displayed before a captive audience of thousands, coming right out and encouraging the use of motorcycles? Neither did we but on Feb. 24, 1980 the actual sign shown here appeared in bright lights, on the Santa Monica Freeway south of Los Angeles.

Bigger is better, as a design concept, has a few problems when it comes to motorcycles. Fortunately the major motorcycle manufacturers have begun to figure this out and there are a whole passel of new motorcycles available that offer better performance through less weight.

Remember the first DR370 Suzuki? It had a funny sized fourstroke single cylinder engine bolted into a decent frame, but the general styling and suspension travel were comparable to 1968 enduro bikes. The same bike received a square headlight and different paint for '79 .

Anyone who ever parked a motorcycle on a dark street and walked off to a five-hour double feature knows the feeling. You look back over your shoulder one last time and think, “Nice Bike. I hope it's there when I get back.” All through the movie people around you laugh and have a good time, while you remain mildly troubled, remembering how vulnerable your bike looked sitting by the curb.

Motorcycle critics are terrible snobs. When Yamaha’s research began to pay off, when the Specials sold well and inspired imitations, we reporters said in effect, Fine. So Yamaha learned what most people think motorcycles should look like and builds models that look like that, but what about the younger set?

We have regulations here.” said the AMA official when asked why New Zealander Graeme Crosby and his Yoshimura Suzuki were gridded number 48 on the Daytona Superbike Production starting grid. “If people aren’t going to follow the regulations, then they shouldn’t come here.” The problem started in a heat race.

Knowing how to do it, the axiom goes, doesn’t get it done. And so it was with the British motorcycle industry in the mid-Sixties. While Britain’s motorcycle leadership faded, starting with the smallest motorcycles, the large, successful British companies ignored the losses of companies like James and Francis.

Steve Kimball
No sooner had we finished the six touring bike comparison test in the May issue than it was time to leave for the annual goings on at Daytona. Sitting in big silver birds isn’t any fun; sitting on big motorcycles, to me, is fun so the natural thing to do was load up the 1980 Honda GL1100 Interstate, the motorcycle we all picked as our cross-country favorite, and go to Daytona.

Honda is the last of the Japanese giants to produce an all-out 80cc racer. The popular XR75, now an 80, has been around forever, but it never was intended for the track. Building a competitive motocrosser for the 80 class is more difficult than might be imagined.

Honda's new CR80 is a dynamite bike except for the shocks. And the shocks are bad enough to hamper a true evaluation of the bike, so we started calling around for replacement shocks. DG Performance has a complete list of mini bike accessories including shocks, fork and engine kits and sent a pair of KYB remote reservoir shocks and a Terry fork damper kit.

Sooner or later every motorcycle stops running. It can happen on the way to the post office, pulling into your own driveway, or 40 miles west of Howling Moose, Wyoming, with night falling, not to mention snow. Research tells us that most breakdowns occur on bleak, isolated roads, just before dinner.

Living with Yamaha’s XS750 Special for a year was much like living with a roommate for a year. First you notice the conveniences but later you become annoyed with the quirks. Having lived with Yamaha’s Triple now for 10,000 miles and a year we can say it makes a good mate.

Thanks to our old friend Lee Cowie in St Louis we have another nice book to review, this time Black Smoke which follows Rich Mixture (ho ho) and like the latter, is another amusing and informative collection of columns from an Australian motorcycle paper.

Getting more horsepower from a two-stroke is relatively simple: align the ports, bolt on a larger carburetor and install a good expansion pipe. Presto, more power. And it doesn’t take long to do the complete job. Four-strokes are another problem.

Phil Cancilla is an oldtime racer, tuner and sponsor, a straightahead builder, the kind of guy who can rummage around in the toolbox or the back of the truck and come up with the three unrelated parts that can be converted into the device you need in time for the race.

I’ve been considering trying to fit my 1979 Honda CX500 Deluxe with dual front disc brakes. I think it would look great, so if it would improve braking just a little. I’d be willing to do it, realizing it will cost around $300 in parts. It seems like a disc plate would bolt right on to the right side of the wheel and my brake cylinder is the same one as is used on the GL1000 and CB750F. There’s a custom shop nearby that says it could weld a bracket onto the right fork slider.
