ALLAN GIRDLER
Before I get down to the business at hand, which is resigning my position, I need to pay a back-handed compliment and make some explanations. Explanations first. I am not a magazine editor. I am instead a reporter, a motorcycle nut and a lucky man, not quite in that order.

In the case of the "all wise 55", our rulers are obsessed with the illusion that it is "good for the masses." Since politicians are generally a reflection of the people who feed them, we shouldn't be too surprised at their duplicity. As long as the constituency is living in Disneyland, who can blame the politicians for treating us as imbeciles?

"I am the unfortunate owner of a 1978 Yamaha XS750, unfortunate because the No. 2 connecting rod spun a bearing, damaging the rod and the crankshaft beyond repair.

CYCLE WORLD TEST: HONDA V65 SABRE
[no value]
A GREAT, BIG BIKE
Honda's V65 Sabre is a giant of a motorcycle. It weighs 594 lb. with half a tank of gas. The seat height is 33 inches.
This is a giant-sized motorcycle. It's heavy, tall, and enormously powerful. Controlling all this power and all this weight requires lots ot effort and lots of care. A little too much throttle and the super-torquey V-Four can make for a wild ride.

Just how much motor can be stuffed in a motorcycle? Think about it. You can bore out most any engine a millimeter or two and stick in big pistons. Some can be stroked a little. An increase of 10 percent in displacement is reasonable. Then there's the engine conversion, the 650 engine in the 500 frame, the small custom frame for a production engine.

Old friends are good to have. They bring continuity and balance, a baseline from which to measure. If there's a drawback it's that we worry about them when things aren't going well. Against that, it's an extra pleasure when things get better.

Bumbling down the road near our office recently was a barely mobile example of how oddly illogical the human animal can be. It was an old, English sedan from the era of little pointing hands that popped from the roof to signal turns. Even allowing for changing times, these cars were not good cars.

Suzuki's 250 Full-Floater, single rear shock motocrosser first appeared in 1981. The last of the Japanese giants to switch to single rear shocks, the Full-Floater quickly gained a reputation as the best, and the smoothest. The Full-Floaters weren't copies of the other systems either; the Floater used a rocker over the shock, similar to Kawasaki's Uni-Trak, hut the big difference lay in how the shock was compressed; the RM's system lets the shock ride between the rocker and the swing arm, allowing shock compression from the swing arm at the bottom and the rocker at the top.

While the Nighthawk 650's engine screams, Pee Wee Gleason waits. The dragstrip lights flash yellow yellow green and the Nighthawk jumps off the line, tach needle on the peg as Gleason slips the clutch, feeding the rear tire as much power as it will take.

Whether you consider this as so much trivia, or as important historical research, doesn't matter. There have been at least 281 different motorcycles manufactured in the United States. That’s right, 281. We have the names, almost all the dates and locations where they were produced, all this the result of years of research.

Technical information about motorcycles doesn't come better than this. Phil Irving, the man most responsible for the Vincent V-Twin motorcycles, also wrote about motorcycle design. His articles were published in the Thirties and Forties in the English magazine Motor Cycling.

Mark Ewing
Though they are now used primarily in industrial applications rather than as motorcycle powerplants, Villiers twostroke engines were common to a wide variety of small British bikes produced in the years following WW II. Attempting to chronicle the products of all the manufacturers that used these engines was undoubtedly difficult, but this book has done so successfully.

Jerry Hatfield has already had his introduction. He was the author of the Rollie Free story (CW June 1983) and the man who provided the wonderful picture of the hero at speed. Hatfield knows and cares about racing, motorcycles and history. Despite evidence to the contrary, getting the historical facts isn’t the hard part.

The clubs and organizations that are devoted to the various forms of on-the-road motorcycling have long deserved more attention and exposure. Right? Right! There are hundreds of motorcycle organizations that, along with the American Motorcyclist Association, sponsor national and regional events in the form of rallies, tours, charity rides and other get-togethers.

Handlebar-mount fairings have come a long way since the you-cut/drill/grind-it days of steel-strap mounting systems. When the manufacturers of those windshields said universal fit, they probably meant it; it's just that one-size-fits-all usually translated into an exhausting afternoon of trying to cajole the blasted device onto the motorcycle, all the while accompanied by skinned knuckles and language that would shock a Welsh coal miner.

In the March, 1984, Service column, Chris Hanley described a problem with a deceleration wobble on his CB1100F. I purchased a CB1100F last year also, and after about four months, the same problem developed with my bike. After experimenting with the same things as Mr. Hanley, I had the dealer torque the steering head bearings to the maximum value (87 ft.lb.).
