Riding to work this morning I came up on a full dress Gold Wing; barndoor airing, extra lights, teardrop saddlebags, he works. The rider wore a pea-soup green rain suit and an open helmet, inside of which was a man of my father’s generation. I was your basic cafe commando crouched over the tank bag on the CJPZ.

I am writing in response to your October issue in which you reviewed the A-Trak. Since the device has been reviewed in all the major publications and yours was the only publication that found it without merit, I feel compelled to respond. I believe the performance advantages of the A-Trak to be beyond dispute. In the recent Superbikers competition Mike Kidd won the second heat on an essentially stock Yamaha YZ 465 equipped with an A-Trak

Not every year does the direction of motorcycle design change. Sometimes motorcycles follow the same design direction for decades with little variation. This year is important. Several new trends are starting, some of which will be more important than others.

Good ideas never disappear forever, and neither do good names. Honda knew that a road going 500cc Single was a good idea, one whose time keeps coming back, and they knew the Ascot name was useful, because the XR500-based Honda TT machine has had a successful racing record at Ascot.

All the concern in recent years about motorcycle safety is providing information about technique, and that's a good thing. The latest new source of information on how motorcycles are ridden comes from the Motorcycle Safety Department of Northern Illinois University at DeKalb.

TURBO INSURANCE

Big engined motorcycles frequently manage to be just as economical in fuel consumption as smaller bikes despite The additional power. Where they don't fare so well is with insurance, which is normally paid for depending on engine size. Now that a number of turbocharged motorcycles are becoming available, providing the performance, weight and price of much larger machines, it might seem that they could escape the insurance penalty of a large engine.

When Kawasaki's new GPz75O was tested in the March, 1982 Cycle World, we reported with some skepticism that the intake ports were ported and highly polished. Never had we seen a stock motorcycle with such a beautifully ported head. Non-standard, we called the treatment.

At first it didn't make sense, why Yamaha would produce another fast, sporting 550cc street bike when the company already makes one of the fastest and best 550 sports machines. Besides the question of why try to beat the Seca 550, there was the question of how to beat the Seca 550.

Engines. Year in, year out, step-through to world championship, if there’s one thing Honda is most famous for, it’s got to be engines. All types and sizes and kinds, from the old reliable to designs everybody else has forgotten to configurations never before considered, what Honda does best is make engines.

Yamaha has the distinction of being the first Japanese manufacturer to build an open class motocrosser that threatened the European makes' supremacy. The 1980 YZ465 would out-drag, out-jump and out-brake all the others. Maico, the best in class until the YZ465 came along, countered with a fire-breathing 490 for '81 and regained the drag-race award.

Rumors of a big roadgoing Single from Honda have surfaced with annual regularity for about three years now, probably starting about the time XL500 owners noticed their dual purpose machines made remarkably good street bikes. Enjoyable off-road, they were also light, economical and fun to ride on the pavement.

In a late model introduction, Suzuki has become the third Japanese manufacturer to join the Turbo Wars for 1982, following Honda and Yamaha in unveiling a turbocharged middleweight sport bike. The version shown was an early prototype rather than a production model, which means that nobody has yet been allowed to ride the bike or start it up and there may be some minor design changes before it reaches the local showroom floor.

Leather jackets and motorcycling go together about as well as pistons and rings because what motorcyclists need most in clothing is well provided by leather. Leather jackets aren't perfect; they are relatively expensive, not entirely waterproof and not as warm as the best insulated suits.

Like death and taxes, the drive characteristics of shaft-drive bikes are considered inevitable. Twist the throttle and the back end comes up. It's the price you pay for the clean running and low maintenance of a shaft. The first time we'd ask about it, we'd get the response, "It's 'cause the pinion's trying to climb up the ring gear.

Curses on the inventor of the bread box. When that otherwise useful appliance arrived it became a benchmark. Things were bigger/smaller than a breadbox. From there we evolved into evaluating from the standpoint of something else, as in faster than speeding bullets, busier than hogs on ice, etc.

When Kawasaki introduced the Uni-Trak, people scratched their heads and mumbled and pretty much agreed that Kawasaki had figured out the right place for the shock. Putting it vertically behind the engine and low in the chassis made sense.

Nothing makes a more lasting impression on a motorcyclist than the sight of an empty parking spot that used to contain his bike. If the motorcycle was chained and locked, outfitted with alarms and spotlights and protected by everything short of a minefield and it still got stolen, chances are it was hit by a pro.

Motorcycles are for riding, so to many of us the very idea of packing our machine into a box and loading the box onto a truck (later, maybe even an airplane) and sending it off not under its own power seems to be, well, non-motorcycling. On the other hand changes of job, assignment overseas, buying or selling a vintage or racing bike thousands of miles away are part of the sport.

When Yamaha introduced its first V-Twins, for the 1981 model year, the XV920 was an obvious stepchild. Mother really did like the Virago 750 better, had in fact designed the Virago to look American and appeal to the American market; pullbacks, peanut tank, stepped seat and an engine configuration similar to you-know-who.

Team Honda's David Bailey was asked what advice he'd give an eight-year-old with his eyes on a factory ride and a National Championship. This is what he said: "At the age of eight there's other things to do. There's no rush to get into it. My dad didn't start racing until he was 13 and he accomplished quite a bit.

I recently purchased a 1981 Honda CM400A. Due to Chicago weather, I stored the bike for the winter months. My question to you is, after receiving a variety of answers from friends and dealers, is it safer to drain the gasoline from the tank and lines or fill the tank completely with gasoline and add Sta-bil or some similar product?
