Before anyone skips to the end to find the answer to the above question, I confess. I don't know the answer. What happened was, I was crossing southern Wyoming, headed east. I had what the truckers call a front door, in this case a black Camaro driven by a woman with a fancy hairdo and a heavy foot.

We want to express our sincere appreciation for the exposure given to JEB’s helmets in the September issue. The comments were favorable, as we expected. However, you did not mention the aerodynamics which we think are very important. The groove helps reduce turbulence and the rear shape eliminates drag and lift.

While on a trip this past summer one of the crew was challenged by a man who was convinced this magazine has no sense of value. Month after month, he said, Cycle World says nice things about terrible motorcycles. What do you ride? our man asked.

Motorcycles are fun and part of the fun is the way they look. Presently looks come in three variations; standard, which is the median, normal bars-seat-tank-pegs; sports, with low bars, semi-rearseat pegs and something resembling racer profile; and cruiser, with high pullback bars, stepped seat, small tank and fat rear tire.

“Why would anyone want to ride one of these big heavy four-stroke Singles when there are so many lightweight two-strokes available?” asked the guy on the other side of our garage. “Hell, a good 250 two-stroke Single will stay right with most of those big lungers and you know for sure you’ve gone mad when it’s time to start one of those beasts.

There are times when riding a Ducati Pantah is magic, as when hurtling along a gently-curved, deserted highway, surrounded by fields of green spring grass, enveloped in a rush of warm air, the speedometer needle bent over hard right and the beat of the exhaust lost behind in the speed.

Honda one-upped the other manufacturers of 250cc motocrossers last year by offering a water cooled 250 racer. Everyone except Kawasaki offered water-cooled 125 racers but only Honda had a production water-cooled 250 MX. The radical new bike, complete with short-stroke engine and many other features previously available only to factory stars, became standard every day stuff.

Kit bikes, Bill Werner says. All Harley racers on the Winston Pro circuit begin with the basic XR750 and then buy or build frames, engines, brakes, suspension and so forth so the machines are really kit bikes, assembled components that anybody can have.

People who watched it happen with cars have been predicting for years that the motorcycle of the future will have an automatic transmission. It will also be enclosed, like all those failed designs of the future that most of us have forgotten or never seen.

It took him 10 years, but Brad Lackey finally brought home the 500cc Motocross World Championship. His victory on the 12-race Grand Prix circuit was the result, Lackey says, of sticking to his pre-season plan and having good luck. “We sat down at the beginning of the year and looked at the last 10 years and what it took to win the Championship and why I didn't win it,” said Lackey, 27, after the season ended.

Team Honda’s Mike Baldwin won both the Formula One and Superbike races at Sears Point, taking the 1982 Formula One Championship in the process. The Superbike race was red flagged and restarted after an 11th-lap crash that left a rider and his bike partially blocking the racetrack.
