Omens usually affect me. I have a secret cache of quirks and superstitions, ranging from not shaving on race morning to never saying rude things about an engine when it can hear you. In general I follow my interpretations of the tea leaves.But not always.

The response from your recent article Roadcraft, Part V, The Superbike School has been phenomenal. I must only conclude from this that your magazine is one of the few that is actually read by the motorcycle enthusiast public. As an aside, I would like to point out that the heaviest response has been from the upper mid-west, Illinois-Wisconsin area.

Endurance runs were a popular means of proving the durability of motorcycles back when Wells Bennett and Cannonball Baker were regularly beating each other’s records for crossing the country up and down or cross-ways. In 1922 Bennett broke the transcontinental record with a ride from Los Angeles to New York that took six days and 15 hours.

Riders planning on attending that annual fall gathering known as Aspencade had better get a few more maps this year. Aspencade as it has been known is no more. It’s a victim of progress. The Chaparral, the motel in Ruidoso where Til Thompson’s annual fall outing was headquartered, is being converted into condominiums.

More exciting reading has been written, but for sheer weight and amount of information contained few publications can rival Motorcycle Accident Cause Factors and Identification of Countermeasures. That’s the official title of what has been called the Hurt Report for the last couple of years.

Until two cans arrived in the mail we didn’t suspect there really was a Mouse Milk. The name has always sounded like a miracle lubrication additive, the kind of thing that you add to the crankcase to double your horsepower. It turns out Mouse Milk isn’t like that, and the distributor wanted us to know that, so he sent us a couple of cans.

Small and Harley-Davidson weren’t always mutually exclusive. Certainly Dick O’Brien knows that. His stable of Harley-Davidson racing machinery includes a few small bikes with the Harley name on them. They came from Harley’s Italian factory, the company that had been Aermacchi before Harley bought the factory and sold the small 250cc bikes as Sprints in the U.S.

Remember those wonderful ads in the comic books where the 97 lb. weakling went to the beach only to have some guy with big muscles and no neck kick sand in his face and walk away with the girl? Our skinny hero then went home to take a mail order course in muscle building and returned to the beach in glory, reclaiming his girl and shoving the bully in the face.

Last time we tested a Kawasaki KDX250 (Aug. ’80) the bike was part of a seven-bike enduro comparison. Although it was the first to arrive at our office, it was the last to be ridden. It was flat homely and all the testers were sure it would be the least desirable.

Dawn broke over the Laguna Mountains, resting the sun squarely on the median of California's 1-8. Visor down, sunglasses in place, we aimed for it and drove toward El Centro from San Diego. Handlebars bobbed gently in the rearview mirror as the road curved and climbed through the rocky environment.

Remember when you could buy the ultimate motocrosser and be assured it would stay the ultimate for two or three years? Those days are long gone. You better buy that new model as soon as it’s introduced these days. Otherwise six or eight months down the road you’re going to be astounded to find that shiny new 28 port, half a shock, one fork, hydraulic drive wonder is an antique.

When last we reviewed the work of our disreputable pal Bob Bitchin, he’d written a novel. A trashy novel, the perfect framework for the sort of sleazy movie shown only at drive-ins during the summer. In exchange for the promise of a part in said movie we agreed to give his book an honest review.

Handlebar-mount fairings have had a renaissance of sorts since the advent of plexiglass fairings. Everybody and his uncle is producing all shapes and sizes of clear and smoked plastic shields, some just tiny patches to swirl some wind past the rider, others the size of barn doors that extend from the front axle to a half foot above the rider's head.

Back before the world had ever heard of dual-purpose bikes, back when you and I liked Ike and we’d rather be dead than red, Scrambles was the most popular form of off-road competition and the bikes used in scrambles races were just ordinary bikes, minus a few heavy parts.

Eddie Lawson was nine seconds ahead of third place and had first in sight when he spotted Steve Johnson and the Kawasaki pit board. Lawson was on the fastest part of the Daytona course and approaching the slowest, the transition being critical and demanding.

The Daytona 200 was barely 10 laps old when Freddie Spencer realized he was in trouble. He had led and been passed and led again, running in a clump with Mike Baldwin on another V-Four Honda and Kenny Roberts on a works YZR500 Yamaha. Now Roberts had coasted to a halt with a seized engine, leaving Spencer and Baldwin and their identical Hondas up front.

The start was different, but the ending came right out of the 1981 World Championship season. Richard Schlachter lined up on the grid with the Bob MacLean TZ250J, worried because his new tires had only three laps of practice on them.Rain had eliminated other practice sessions, and AMA officials gave those precious three laps just before the start.

With competition getting tougher in club-level Stock Production racing, creative cheating is increasing. One team has used two intake cams in a bike with electronic tach. The intake cam looks just like an exhaust cam, but has more lift. The same team ported a cylinder head, then bead-plasted the ports and used a fine porting tool tip to create imitation casting marks in the enlarged ports.

It was the first time in years that grand prix contender Brad Lackey stayed home to seriously contest an American motocross series. And even though Lackey was able to pull off the Open class title in the CMC/Preston Petty-sponsored Golden State Series, the Team Suzuki rider found the pickings hard at most of the seven races held over the winter at California’s top tracks.
