The first article I read in the December ssue was the test on the FXRS. Good Drakes and mileage, improved handling, ubber mounted engine. This sounded Dretty good until I saw the list price of £6990! How in Hell can they charge that nuch? They’re using about the same old engine and while the tech improvements ^re admirable, they’re pretty sad comDared to Japanese technology.

Racing and history were at the core of this week’s office debate. It started when Joe Scalzo sent in his article on 20 years of racing for the January 20th Anniversary issue. And it hasn’t ended because the letters have just started coming in about Scalzo’s comments, so if anyone missed the story, go back and check it out.

Chalk up another name on the hig. pressure motorcycle list. Moto Mor ini is the third factory to officially ar nounce a turbocharged motorcycle though rumors of turbo Kawasakis an Suzukis keep floating around. Morini is one of Italy’s smallest motor cycle manufacturers, but surprisingly turbo cycle is a comprehensive package It’s not just a turbocharger hung on existing model, which, in the case of Moi ini might not be a good idea.

When Kawasaki announced the 1982 model lineup, the really new motorcycles were embargoed because Kawasaki’s PR department didn’t want any dealers surprised before the dealer meeting. That meant last month’s new Kawasaki story didn’t include photos of some of the new bikes.

The latest trend in street motorcycles is the sport look, and the new Kawasaki GPz750 version of the already well-established KZ750 is a good example of the type. It’s basically a dohc, eight-valve, plain-bearing KZ750 Four done over with angular styling lines that scream out “SPEED.” It comes with a larger gas tank, a sport fairing, bright red paint with silver and blue stripes and everything else—well, almost everything else—is done in black, from black chrome exhaust pipes to a crinkle black cam cover.

The word heritage normally brings to mind a birthright, a legacy or something inherited. HarleyDavidson has a Heritage model, a nostalgically styled celebration ol American touring and their venerable V-Twin. The motorcycle has been around, in one form or another, for a long time, so no one questions the name.

The hail of rocks continued long after the howling screech and blizzard of dirt disappeared over the hill. Click-click-CLICK-clickity-click-THUDclick; pebbles and stones and bits of granite and clods the size of eggs tumbling out of the sky, hitting the ground 500 ft.

Racing, unlike history, mathematics or biology, is not a subject that can be committed to memory and, thus learned, applied wherever applicable. Nor is it like so many purely physical sports that reward the development of muscle and little else.

Suzuki's new RMX motocrossers made a big splash with most owners but it didn't take long to learn the stock air filter caused more restriction than necessary. And extreme care was called for when cleaning and replacing the stock filter. K&N has come to the rescue with replacement filters that make maintenance easier and less frequent.

Exactly how much stuff will fit into the BagMan saddlebags I don't know, not in a scientific way, even though there must be some cubic dimension filed away somewhere. Instead, I know I could cram one week’s worth of clothes for street and all-weather riding, plus a module of cameras and lenses, a soft portfolio case, a nylon stuff bag with basic spare parts, a clutch cable and a clutch tool-—I’ll explain about those two in a minute—into both bags.

Horsepower isn't as simple as it sounds, and there are motorcycles that give horsepower a bad name. Building a bike with an incredible amount of top speed or acceleration isn’t the same thing as a building a motorcycle that’s fun to ride on the street.

Joel Breault
Sam Wills holds the Top Fuel dragracing E.T. record, yet he rides a bike built in a shop located 250 miles from the nearest dragstrip suitable for a top fuel bike. “We don’t test,” says Wills when asked how he can dial in a racebike without using a local dragstrip.

NIGHT RIDING
How to Trick Your Eyes Into Seeing.

Bill Hampton
Riding at night is a great way to check your headlight adjustment. Nighttime is also good for snipe hunts and record runs down deserted highways. About the only problem with motorcyling when the sun goes down is that things smaller than the Golden Arches get hard to see.

The long awaited big book about Harley-Davidson has at last arrived from Haynes Pub. where Harry Sucher (author of a similar tome on Indians) has had it in germination for quite some time. There has been very little written about Harleys in hardcover form anyway, mostly due to the factory's resolute non-cooperation, and traditionalists will be glad to know that Harley hasn't changed on this either!

Ever consider judging a book by its cover? There's surely a temptation here. The title is "Superbikes" and the initial reaction is, Gee, superbikes. We all know about them. Superbikes are the high performance machines as in Honda 750, and they're the road-racing cannons ridden by Freddie and Eddie and Wes.

Fascinating fun, wheelies. Motocross stars and road racing champions carry the front wheel under power and unicycle over the finish line. Wheelies are a display of skill and bravery and control. Even those of us who say the uplifted front tire costs you speed and requires taking chances that you don’t need to take and may even get you pitched into the weeds or written up by the police know, deep in our secret hearts that yes, common sense is all well and good but it would be neat, now and then, to be able to wheelie.

The run was timed by officials of the AMA-affiliated Dragbike organization as a stunt for a TV show, although the press release announcing the run and claiming it as a world record makes no mention of a back-up run, normally required for setting records.

Specialization has been a good thing for motorcycles and lots of motorcyc1e accessories like tires and seats and handlebars. Except for the biggest companies, most specialized accessories have been produced by different companies, so Vetter, for instance, might produce big touring fairings and maybe Shoei or somebody else would produce small handlebar-mount fairings.
