Because I am on record as having not much respect for the ability of the average driver, and because I was so obviously the guilty party in this incident, I need to set an elaborate stage. A month or so back I mentioned omens, those signs that maybe you shouldn’t do what you’re about to do.

I read with mixed emotions the test on the Honda FT500. I'm pleased to see Honda pick up the concept of a road-going big Single with its advantages of low weight, low initial cost and maintenance within the grasp of the average owner. It’s also nice to see it styled as a serious sporting bike with no attempts to connect it with big Singles of the past.

Motorcycles get classified, just like motorcyclists, but it’s always seemed more reasonable for bikes to get labels because it’s the motorcyclists who do the labeling. The subject came up as we were labeling the 550cc motorcycles compared elsewhere in this issue.

Comparing the Kawasaki GPz550, Suzuki GS550M, Yamaha Seca 550 and Yamaha Vision Fun is a hard quaiity to measure, but in the world of street bikes it may be that the sporting 550s offer more than any other single group of motorcycles. While they may not be best for two-up touring or shooting from one coast to the other, they truly come into their own on those stretches of winding road you later look back upon and remember with fondness A 550 is big enough and fast enough tor thrill without feeling lethal and intimidating, and it's not so heavy and large that it takes on a mind of its own if you get out of shape halfway through a corner.

Did you ever daydream about building the ultimate dirt bike? Think of the possibilities; a custom-built chromemoly steel frame, maybe painted bright Chinese red, forks with 12 in. of travel and 40mm stanchion tubes, Fox Twin-Clicker single shock, aluminum swing arm, giant-killer 495cc engine with eight-petal reed and five-speed transmission, Metzeler tires, chrome-moly bars, maybe use white plastic tank and fenders to show off the red frame, folding shift lever and Magura hand levers—all the good stuff.

There’s a message in the Yamaha Seca 400, its engine singing at 7000 rpm, the mirrors crystal clear, the seat comfortable, the bars at just the right place for brisk riding. The message is that this is no beginner’s bike. Myths die hard in motorcycling.

All you have to do is buy this motorcycle. True story. Several months ago the editor was at a lunch, seated across from a big guy in one of the motorcycle companies.

Just how fast motorcyclists have been riding on the newer machines has been a matter of speculation, guessing and the occasional cooperation of stern-faced men in funny hats who drive cars equipped with bright red lights. Even law-abiding, slow-riding motorcyclists have been heard to ridicule the federally mandated 85 mph speedometers.

These are Yamaha saddlebags, designed by the accessory people at Yamaha’s offices in this country, and produced by an outside supplier, This is how most Yamaha accessories are created and produced and the result has been a catalog full of Yamaha accessories that generally work very well.

Last year I purchased a GS750 and have been very pleased with this motorcycle, but it has a flaw to which I would like to alert other owners. After only 6500 mi. my alternator stator burned out. The mechanic has informed me this is due to a poorly grounded battery box, battery and regulator-rectifier.
