Amazing device, the human psyche. Just as the Eastern masters tell us what we're mad at isn't what we're mad at, so does it follow that what gets us upset isn't what gets us upset. One recent Saturday morning I was riding my XL250 down the highway, thudding along at 60 in the slow lane so as not to become a hood ornament and I found myself reflecting "Drat.

Liked Cycle World's story in the May issue on the V-Twin. In your listing of Japanese V-Twins, however, you missed a couple. Neither was exported, of course, or even terribly well known in Japan, so they were easy to miss. In 1932 Kurogane produced and sold a 1296cc 4-stroke V-Twin, which was especially popular with the sidecar crowd.

Henry N. Manney III
What with old bikes and the restoration thereof becoming the order of the day, all sorts of hitherto unknown material is commencing to surface from the black hole of time. Car books are much more prevalent about the period say 1910-1939 but motorcycle books tended to have short runs as motorcyclists didn't have much money.

Off-road motorcycling has become a Them-and-Us situation for many motorcyclists as a result of conflicts with environmentalists. Normally it's a simple story we've all heard dozens of times: Environmentalists propose land closures.

Last year's Kawasaki KZ550 was a popular bike, as one of our staff quickly discovered when he tried to buy one for a Box Stock road racing project. Only a few weeks after word of the bike's performance reached the public, local dealers had sold their allotments sight unseen and most were holding deposits on any 550 they could get their hands on.

David D. Mallet
You've bought a new bike and you've ordered up all the options; better tires and shocks, a fairing tuned exhausts and a luggage rack. Now it's time for insurance, which isn't an option. First, if you've financed the new machine the bank or the dealer or both won't let a wheel roll until they've protected their investment by requiring you to buy insurance.

This is a true horror story about buying motorcycle insurance. A rider who'd just bought a new Honda 750 went shopping for the best price on an insurance policy. He considered a policy underwritten by Eldorado Insurance Co., then settled on Mobile Insurance Co., which had the same coverage for less money.

Who would call BMW “trend setting?” Even as motorcycles in general have become bigger, faster, more complex with more and more cylinders and valves and carburetors or even computer-controlled fuel injection, BMWs have come with the same basic engine layout since 1923—opposed Twin, two valves per cylinder, pushrods, two carburetors and a driveshaft to deliver power to the rear wheel.

Maico's deserved reputation for controllable power and precise handling has mostly been the result of that company's open class motocrossers. Maico's 250 motocrosser has always had the same good handling manners but until last year, they had a reputation for being somewhat slow and pipey.

Suzuki's DR hasn't been one of the alltime best sellers. The original DR had an odd size 370cc engine that didn't fit into any competition size class. And the bike was further troubled by dated enduro styling. Although Suzuki had their PE line for serious competitors, many people were reluctant about buying a bike that didn't fit established classes.

All the components of Yamaha's flat track racer are a combination made, if not in Heaven then surely in the winner's circle. Yamaha has supported racing with piles of money and parts and privateer support since the days of the roadracing TD-1.

Henry N. Manney III
There are really not many motorcycles of which it can be said that they changed the mainstream of industry design. Il va sans dire that Great Leaps Forward have to work properly and not just be the first on the scene. Velocette's ohc Single, BMW's flat Twin, Scott's two-stroke, Ariel's Square Four, De Dion Bouton's V-Twin just for examples but the greatest of these was the Triumph Speed Twin, designed by Edward Turner and introduced in 1937.

We waited impatiently for the introduction of Suzuki's first PE400. When it finally came we were impressed with the big bore's smooth power but the steering precision wasn't so impressive. Still, the 400 had so many good traits, like the quick change rear wheel and strong frame, we decided to keep the bike and try to fix some of the things we didn't like.

This story of riding around the world is billed as a marvelous reading adventure and features a cover photo of author Simon on a thrashed Triumph. It's true that Simon made his journey on a Triumph 500, but nobody should buy this book thinking that it is the tale of a motorcyclist riding around the world.

Double debut, or so they said. Sacramento was the first mile race on the Winston Pro series calendar and Honda and Yamaha both were scheduled to introduce their V-Twin racers. At tech inspection, it was yes and no. Honda had the NS750, and an incredible piece of engineering it is, but Freddie Spencer and Jeff Haney were in the backs of their heat races.

GS1100 PIPES
Kerker has an exhaust system specifically designed for GS1100 owners who demand maximum cornering clearance.

The exhaust system is delivered with competition and street—legal baffles so it can be used on the track or street. For more information and price contact your Kerker dealer or Kerker, CW-8, 7900 Deering Ave., Canoga Park, Calif. 91304.
