When we got to the hotel Peter Egan gave me a sermon, in my own words. “Y’know, for a man of your age, with your job responsibilities and all those kids and poor night vision . . . you were cooking along pretty good back there." Guilty. In fact, I told him, when we rolled up to the stop light that marks the end of the sporting highway and the return of civilization, I had reflected on our ride and told myself, as I told him.

By now most people have seen the Yamaha commercial with the Exciter I rider explaining how it gets 1000 mpg and then 2000 mpg and finally 8000 mpg. In the end the commercial concedes the bike gets about 75 mpg. That’s about what our test Exciter I got, so the figure is believable.

Steve Kimball
when Yamaha showed off its 1981 model lineup at dealer shows in Las Vegas, the entertainers took a back seat. How could Wayne Newton hope to compare to the 920cc V-Twin XV920? Englebert never looked as good as the Seca 750 inline Four with its computerized monitoring system and special intake system and shaft drive.

When an Italian designer decides to build a motorcycle and wants only the best components he has little reason to take his shopping list across the national border. Italian craftsmanship in the world of high performance motorcycle bits and pieces (not to mention bicycles, cars, aircraft, jewelry, scarves, hats and loafers) is renowned.

Shortly after 3 p.m. on what the French call 6 Juin we left Omaha Beach and pointed the bikes inland. It was the 36th Anniversary of D-Day, first step in the liberation of Europe and it was a good time to ride a Harley-Davidson across France. It was also something of a diversion.

The noise hits you first. Not so much a sound as a force, a physical power you can feel as it pummels your chest. And the look. Jim Bernard rides Ron Teson’s supercharged Top Fuel Yamaha XS11, running nitro-methane and alcohol, all the time.

One of the great sinking feelings in all of motorcycle repair occurs at that moment when the bolt you were tightening suddenly feels loose again. The wrench goes slack in hand, and in one terrible moment you realize that all the parts so carefully assembled over the past hours have to come apart so you can tap new threads and find another bolt.

John Ulrich
Above all, Yamaha is secretive. When a reporter visiting the factory in Japan asked Mr. N. Hata, director of motorcycle engineering, about Kenny Roberts’ aluminum-framed Grand Prix racebike, Mr. Hata only smiled. He wouldn’t discuss the bike, wouldn’t even confirm its existence.

Terry Vance blasted his VHR Suzuki GS1100 Pro Stocker to a shattering 8.82 sec., 151 mph IDBA record-setting victory at West Salem, Ohio, defeating reigning IDBA champion Sid Pogue's 9.39 sec. 143 mph. Vance's new record so outdistanced the rest of the Pro Stocker field that IDBA officials changed the weight break for two-valves-per-cylinder, dohc engines from 8.1 lb.

Tank sealer can be useful stuff, especially in the case of a steel gas tank with rust inside. Getting rust out of a tank is difficult, if not impossible-we've never found an effective or easy way to do it. Leaving the rust in may be fine for awhile, but in advanced cases the rust can plug petcock strainers or prevent the float needle from seating in a carburetor.
