Brought me up short, this one did. Talking with a man who wasn't sure which bike to buy and when we had that question settled he asked with whom he'd been speaking. I told him and he said "Oh yeah. You're the only one who gets his picture in the magazine."

Since I've read the Harry Hurt/ NHTSA report I have re-read, analyzed, advocated and promoted it to anyone who would listen. I even changed my style of riding. Tonight some of these changes probably saved my life. I am a 24-year-old college graduate with three years of dirt bike experience prior to eight years of street riding.

What isn't explained in this issue's test of the Moto Guzzi V50 is why we went to Montana to test a motorcycle. The 490cc Guzzi has been sold in this country for about two years, and during that time we’ve seen just enough of the bike to get us interested.

California took the first step toward recognizing motorcycles as a way of saving gas when the state flashed a notice on an electronic billboard proclaiming that "Motorcycles are energy savers." Now the same Caltrans motorcycle coordinator, Joe Mariner, has announced more benefits for motorcyclists.

"Who cares what happens when it doesn't work," said Larry Acedo, staring at the Kawasaki Classic’s fuel injection system. “All I care about is how it works." Acedo’s words stopped everything in a conversation covering the problems a Classic owner might face if the system quit working along some rural road.

Motorcycling around the world appears to be turning into a competitive sport with the latest entrant claiming he made the trip in 76 days, three days quicker than the last record holder. Perhaps more amusing is that Marco Gardoqui says he rode a Derbi moped on his 1 1,704 mi.

V50 II

Moto Guzzi's seldom-seen V50 500cc roadster is either the most beautiful, exotic and best handling mid-size bike made or an over-priced, under-powered small Twin. Which bike it is depends on the motorcyclist and only those who appreciate machines that are red, Italian and make all the right noises will be excited by the V 50-II. Moto Guzzi doesn’t introduce an allnew motorcycle design every year, or every decade for that matter.

Fork oil, like fine wine, tends to develop a lot of character with age. It begins as an undistinguished red or amber fluid and with the passing of years matures into an interesting mixture of rainwater, powdered chrome, metallic oxides and road grime, with trace elements of mineral oil.

Harley-Davidsons, the factory tells us, are more than machines. It has to do with producing a motorcycle that isn't evaluated just on the basis of function, but on the way it makes a rider feel while functioning and the latest in a long line of not-quite machines is the Sturgis, or the FXB 80 to those familiar with Harley's letter designations.

Nothing in the scene made sense. The British motorcycle industry is the ghost of a shadow, current practice is to have more cylinders and less displacement and finally, my family did its best to put George III in his place, that is, out of America.

They're all gone now. Norton, BSA, Royal Enfield, Matchless, Velocette, Triumph. Well, almost all gone. The rest of the Triumph models are history, but the Bonneville survives, produced by a workers’ cooperative after the parent company succumbed from a combination of strikes and the generally harsh economic conditions in England.

The sun breaks over the horizon, sweeping remnants of night into long shadows across the drive. The memory of sleep too-soon ended is slapped away by dawn air, still crisp with the chill of darkness. A rider shivers into his jacket, tugs on helmet and gloves, clicks on the ignition, pulls in the clutch and hits the starter.

In racing there is a word for people who don't improve their bikes every season. The word is loser. To win, development must never stop. Every year’s machine must be better than the last. Lap times continue to fall, machines and entire classes travel around racetracks at quicker rates.

Remember when Kawasaki dirt machines were a joke? Showing up at a race track with one proved you didn’t know much about dirt riding. The older ones had fast engines, narrow powerbands and handling best described as awful. Kawasaki got serious around ’78 and most of the ’79 models were really good.

I own a 1974 BSA B50 MX and am very interested in modifying the suspension. Your May, 1979, issue carried an article testing the CCM 600 which uses B50 engine tooling, etc. Do you know if the swing arm and fork/triple clamp assembly will fit my frame?

150/80-18 MOTOCROSS TIRE
$80
Metzeler has a new motocross tire designed for large displacement dirt bikes. The metric-sized tire has the same outside diameter as a 4.50 but features a 1 in. wider contact patch. Also adding gripping power is the Metzeler’s new nylon casing technique. This casing promotes flexing for more bite. Weight of the new model is around 15 lb. and cost is about $80. The 150/80 should be at dealers by midsummer.
Metzeler
TUBE REPAIR KIT
Webco’s enduro rider’s tube repair and inflation kit has been enlarged for road bike use with three additional C02 cartridges and a flexible air hose that fits around discs and mag spokes. The cold patch kit contains an assortment of precut patches, one tire boot, a buffer, five C02 cartridges, flex hose, stem fitting, and rubber cement sealed in individual plastic pellets. Each pellet holds enough glue to apply one patch. Webco dealers should have the kit or contact Webco, Inc., CW-9, Box 429, Venice, Calif. 90291.
Metzeler
Travel Tanks
$249
A small electric fuel pump transfers fuel from the side tanks to the main tank when the main gets low. All hoses, lines hardware and fittings are supplied along with step-by-step installation instructions. Prices range from $209 to $249 depending on make and model of bike. For more information contact: Interstate Accessories, Inc. CW-9, 7832 Alabama Ave. #11, Canoga Park, Calif. 91304. Phone toll free, Calif. 800-382-3600, nationwide 800-423-5120.

M. ROBERT PLASTIC BOOTS
M. Robert boots are made from flexible polyurethane plastic and use a full length foam liner like a ski boot. The top front of the boot contains ventilation holes that direct air to the front of the foam liners to make hot weather riding more comfortable. These vents can also be blocked for cold weather use. Two easy-to-fasten skiboot-type buckles use a wire cable and lever closure. The uppers pivot at the ankles on metal pivot pins. Both MX and enduro models are offered. MX models have steel shanks, enduro models don’t. Sizes run from 7 1/2 to 10 1/2 in odd numbers. Colors are red or black and sell for around $120. Check with your local dealer or contact Race Ready, Inc., CW-9, 10651 King William Dr., Dallas, Texas 75220. Call (214) 556-0237.
