We don’t treat sports heroes fairly. When a kid shows signs of talent we tell him (or her) the path to victory is paved with hard work. Practice, practice, practice. So off they go to work on their berm shots, slap shots, to blast the backboard into splinters, do 50 more laps while the other kids are in the video arcade.

Big. powerful motorcycles, especially those with big gas tanks and shaft drive and smooth motors, tend to accumulate accessories. Touring bikes, most people call them. That's why people pile on the luggage and fairings and other equipment to make traveling a little more comfortable.

Eyeglasses have always been a nuisance with full-face helmets, but somebody has finally done something about it. A new BMW full face helmet has a hinged faceplate that lifts the entire chin piece out of the way, making it easy to slide the helmet on or off without removing glasses.

Tom Mueller
When Danny LaPorte made up his mind to race the 250cc World Championship series, he had a hard time finding a bike to ride. Most factory teams scoffed at his inquiries. He was U.S. 500cc Champion in 1979, but was hampered by injuries in 1980 and 1981 and the people he talked to about a ride weren't impressed.

Wrong! That’s what the explanation of shaft-drive suspension movements in last May’s Cycle World was. The èxcuses don’t make for good reading. For those fortunate enough to have missed it, the article, The Elevator Syndrome, explained that shaft drive bikes lift their hind ends when power is applied not because of the torque reaction of the ring and pinion, but because of swing arm angularity.

Evolution in action. That’s what could be seen at Harley’s new model show in Milwaukee. A V-Four wasn’t shown there. There wasn’t a street legal XR750 flat tracker. The big Twins hadn’t grown to 1500cc. In comparison with some other motorcycle companies, which sometimes seem to belong to the engine-of-the-week club, the Harley show might seem anticlimatic.

Off-road riders who favor openclass two-stroke motorcycles didn't have much to choose from during the '82 model year. Fast play riders, usually retired desert, motocross or enduro racers, were almost forgotten if they were in the market for a Japanese-built machine; only Yamaha offered an open-class play bike with decent suspension and such.

Publishing a book about off-road riding in any and all of our 50 states is sort of like teaching a dog to play chess. Just to do it is such a monumental achievement, a triumph of will over circumstances, that it’s unfair to be disappointed if the dog can’t play chess very well.

Instead, living up to another tradition crafty Randy Goss solved the puzzle of a rapidly drying track, put on one of his patented late-season charges and won the race with a wide margin.
