UP FRONT
THE DAY OF THE BIKES

Allan Girdler
Spring. A wonderful word for a wonderful time of year. On this otherwise normal April workday morning I walked outside and was surprised. The air felt good. Warm, calm, fragrant even. And the sun was stronger than I expected. For the previous several months I'd been routinely checking the thermometer at the front door, deciding whether this was a morning for a jacket, or a riding suit, or a jacket underneath a riding suit.

This is in response to Mr. David Allen’s letter concerning the inability of his local dealership to stock the necessary repair parts for his motorcycle. He thinks manufacturers should require their dealers to stock normal replacement parts for all the bikes the dealer sells.

Summer finds us well into the legislative year, and as usual the folks who make the laws—federal, state and otherwise— are doing their damndest to justify their existences. Some of the things they’re considering are: an outright ban of motorcycles from public streets at night, new mandatory helmet laws, the prohibition of helmet speakers, and an anti-crime resolution that makes no distinction between recreational motorcyclists and outlaw gang members.

The problem with being the best of anything, is that there's only one way to go. You can get worse and everybody soon knows it. They're looking for it. Stay the same or improve and nobody notices. Suzuki's RM125 has that problem. For the last couple of years it has been the best 125 motocrosser available out of the crate.

Steve Anderson
Magic carpets have nothing on a current motocross bike, at least not when it comes to suspension. Pluck a street rider or the owner of a 1972 dirt bike off his machine, put him on, say, a Suzuki RM250 and send him down an obstacle course of holes, bumps, rocks, ledges, and gullies.

The best thing about events like the recent Motor Show in Bolo gna, Italy, are the rumors. They float about every year and not one of them isn't exciting. True or not true, they range from the expected to the bizarre. V-Fours, V-Sixes, opposed-Fours, Turbos.

Competition proven. Race-bred. Ride a winner. Sure, we’ve all seen the ads, but when it comes down to the fine print, the winning bike and the production bike usually share name, paint and a few parts. Not this time. Honda’s new XR500R (which shares nothing with the original XR500R except the name) really is nearly identical to the off-road racers and it really is a winner.

Once before, this choice was offered. It was a generation ago, when big bikes meant big V-Twins and newcomers appeared with lighter weight and more performance from their smaller, higher revving parallel Twin engines. The V-Twins used to be Harley-Davidsons and, for a while, Indians.

Despite publicity generated in the world of airplanes and racing cars, turbocharged motorcycles haven’t set the sales charts on fire. Honda, then Yamaha, and then Suzuki have put turbo models on sale only to learn that while lots of people like to read about them, and while the new techniques and problems gave the engineers many happy hours in the lab, when it comes to actually buying, most bike nuts would rather get their performance from bigger engines than from added air pressure.

How easy it sounds, when you read that the solution to your handling problems is to pitch the stock rear shock and replace it with a $400 substitute. Just unbolt the old one and bolt in the new one. There. All fixed. Suspension parts have changed since a new set of shocks cost $30.

It now seems the turbocharger epidemic has infected almost every manufacturer and engine configuration. They all have one thing in common: they’re all four-strokes. What about a turbo-charged two-stroke? Is it possible? What would the power band be like?
