It is very difficult to tell your parents that your new boyfriend loves motorcycles. They immediately picture a six-foot-seven gorilla covered with tattoos, wearing a black T-shirt, drooling in his chestlength beard, showing his middle finger to everyone and riding a 1968 Harley chopper.

George Orwell’s dire predictions notwithstanding, 1984 wasn’t that bad a year for motorcyclists. Actually, compared to the safety-nik days of St. Joan of Claybrook’s National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, 1984 was a banner year, with nary a save-motorcyclists-from-themselves revival in sight.

At long last, Suzuki has pulled the tarps off the remainder of its 1985 lineup, revealing a 1400cc, V-Four interstate-gobbler, and a real-steel 700cc cruiser. As reported in last month’s Roundup, the touring bike is called the GV1400 Cavalcade, an obvious takeoff on Honda’s popular Aspencade, and, in fact, the two bikes do look similiar in profile.

MOTORCYCLE TOURING DOESN'T have to be a big deal; all you need to do is to get a motorcycle, any motorcycle, really, and ride it to someplace far away. And back. It can be that simple. But it rarely is. For one thing, there’s the matter of deciding which bike is best for your long-distance riding needs.

THE $90 SPEEDING TICKET THE Arizona state trooper was scribbling out was almost worth it. For two days the BMW had been moribund on a seemingly endless slab of interstate, towed along in the wake of a horizon-hungry Honda Gold Wing. Then came the first genuinely twisty roads of the trip, and it finally was time for the K100RT to strut, time for the flat-Four Euro-tourer to skip ahead of its more-luxurious companion.

THERE'S NOTHING QUITE LIKE touring. American style. It's the two-wheel version of a classic American concept: getting away from it all by taking it all with you. It's throwing a 70-mph party on Interstate 10, with the muffled chords of your favorite tune mixing with the sound of the wind and the purr of the exhaust.

AS THE COMEDIAN SAID WHEN no one quite understood his joke, “I guess you had to be there.” The people at BMW might soon find themselves in much the same situation. Their new K100RT touring bike isn’t likely to be fully understood or appreciated by most touring riders here in America, where fulldress luxury liners like the Gold Wing Limited Edition rule the open road.

TAMING THE TESI

FEW MOTORCYCLES HAVE stirred as much controversy so quickly as Bimota’s highly unconventional Tesi. When the 400cc Honda-powered Tesi (pronounced tay-zee), with its bizarre, hub-center steering, was first unveiled at the Milan Motor Show a year ago, it raised a lot of eyebrows—and a lot of questions.

THE AMAZONAS
[no value]
It's a good thing the Amazonas isn't sold in this country: It's so big that the government would require each one to have its own zip code. Never mind that this Brazilian heavyweight is powered by an engine right out of a VW Beetle, the fact that the company's brochure lists a sport-bike model makes us wonder what sport they're referring to. In all fairness, the Amazonas is a very special machine: foreign exotica at its . . . well, most foreign. Still, there's no justification for a bike so big that, whenever it passes a bus stop, everyone stands up and digs for change.
THE AMAZONAS
H1
Sure, the Mach III was fast. Sure, it was a 500cc, two-stroke Triple that in 1969 could churn out 60 horsepower and rocket through the quarter-mile in the 12-second bracket. But those qualities came at the almost total expense of a few others, such as suspension, brakes, or any qualities that might be found under the general heading of handling. It also was a bike that had no knowledge of things like vibration control, reliability, fuel economy, low-end power, a socially acceptable noise level or a tendency to keep the front wheel anywhere near the ground. This is the motorcycle that introduced the two-up, third-gear, peace-sign wheelie to America, as well as the plaster body cast and the liability lawsuit, in that order.
THE AMAZONAS
TIGER CUB
There are certain milestones in the long history of British-American relations: the Boston Massacre, the Stamp Act, the Revolutionary War. But international ill-will had to have reached an all-time high when the 200cc Triumph Tiger Cub first came clanking into this country. The four-stroke, single-cylinder Cub achieved instant infamy by having a bottom-end that would stay intact about as long as an M80 on the Fourth of July. And it soon became common knowledge that the ideal take-along toolkit for a Cub was a hammer, a pair of pliers, a spare light bulb and an extra crankshaft. Nevertheless, most of the motocross and enduro machines of today can trace their lineage back to the Cub; for because of its unreliability, it was the best argument of its time for two-stroke dirt bikes.
THE AMAZONAS
CB360T
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Newton proved that. It only follows, then, that for every good, there is an equal bad. The CB360T proved that. The bike’s predecessor, the CB350, was a good, extremely popular machine, but by 1974 was getting a little long of tooth and short of wind. So Honda, in its infinite corporate wisdom, replaced the 350 with the 360, a bike that was no faster and less reliable, and about as exciting to ride as watching a Kenny Roberts/Lawrence Welk match race at Laguna Seca. Blindfolded. The 360’s only technologically advanced feature was its variable-speed transmission: Sometimes it had six speeds, sometimes it didn’t. If Newton had been a motorcyclist, he’d still be turning in his grave.
THE AMAZONAS
TX750
Truly special motorcycles never go away. For instance, take the TX750. Please. If you can get one to run. There are lots of TXs still around, all serving a more useful purpose than ever by providing a home for spiders and shade for moss to grow in. The TX750 was Yamaha’s revolutionary idea for 1973: a 750cc, four-stroke vertical Twin with dual chain-driven counterbalancers. A nice concept, except that the balancer chains were unusually long and had no tensioning devices, so the chains would quickly stretch far enough to put the balancers out of phase. The engine would then begin vibrating worse than if it had no balancers at all; and soon thereafter, the balancers would hit the crankshaft, usually turning the engine into shrapnel in one fell swoop. Some people at Yamaha dealt with this problem philosophically: Yamaha’s designers had wanted to build a 750 Twin that would outdo the British 750 Twins. With the TX750, they may have succeeded.
THE AMAZONAS
RE5
If you leaf through one of Suzuki’s recent corporate-profile brochures, you’ll find no mention of the RE-5, its designer, or anyone who was directly connected with the project. The Rotary is one bike that Suzuki would just as soon forget. This unique, 500-class motorcycle, built back in 1974 with the same brand of marketing savvy that brought us the Nehru jacket, managed to combine the cost of a superbike, the mechanical simplicity of a 747, the sound of an out-of-tune B-29, the performance of a fair-to-middling 350, and the aesthetic appeal of a high-speed train wreck, all into one highly unsalable motorcycle. Oh, alright; some people did buy an RE-5. If you happen to be one of them, please excuse our irreverence. By the way, you wanna buy a bridge?
THE AMAZONAS

Back in the Sixties, a lot of people wondered if the British would be able to build something that could compete with the super-successful Japanese middleweights of that era— the 305 SuperHawks. Scramblers and the like. In 1963, the Norton 400 Electra supplied an answer to that question: No. The Electra had the right configuration—a 384cc, electric-start, four-stroke vertical-Twin engine and big-bike styling; but thanks to the clever use of the large front fork, massive wheels and select other heavyweight parts from its 750 Atlas big brother, the Electra was a bog-slow, two-wheeled tank that proved to be slightly less popular than leprosy. It did, however, have the distinction of being the only bike we know of ever to be fitted at the factory with electrical components from four separate companies: two in England, one in Germany and one in the U.S.—and all in trouble if they were depending upon the Electra for revenue.
THE AMAZONAS
SC500
What made the SC500 such a good example of bad was its ability to confound engineers. To this day, there's likely a fleet of technicians still hard at work in some remote corner of the Yamaha factory trying to figure out whether the single-cylinder SC was supposed to be a two-stroke or a four-stroke. It looked like a two-stroke, yet it usually fired only on every other revolution; but occasionally it would change its mind—usually when least expected or wanted—and cause combustion to occur on every power stroke, resulting in 40 horsepower showing up all at once. Fortunately, the SC500 seemed to hurt itself more than its rider, continually adding to its owner’s collection of holed pistons, self-ported cylinders and nonsparking ignitions, and collecting one more coat of rust from sitting in the garage waiting for parts.
THE AMAZONAS
TM400
Uapanese motocross bikes of the early Seventies weren't assigned a nasty reputation without cause; they earned it, fair and square. And one motocross bike in particular—the Suzuki TM400 Cyclone—earned it for all of the Japanese MXers that would follow for the next decade. The TM400 achieved its ledgendary levels of bad with a delightful combination of way too much horsepower, way too little flywheel effect and handling that could be described as erratic at best. But in all fairness, we really owe quite a lot to the first TM: If it weren’t for that original, orangetanked terror, it’s quite possible that today’s motocrossers wouldn’t be so good; for the TM was a three-dimensional, fully operational blueprint of how not to build an Open-class MX bike. And Japan must have gotten the message; there hasn’t been anything like it since.
THE AMAZONAS
ES-150
Right away, we need to make one fact perfectly clear: No one on the current Cycle World staff has ever ridden an MZ ES-150. No one who will admit to it, at least. So who knows; it might, conceiveably, have been the best-handling, fastest-accelerating bike of its day. But that’s immaterial, anyway, because it was styling—or, more correctly, the absence of it—that earned this East German beauty a position on our Ten Worst roster. In the paradise of visual appeal, the ES-150 is the sludge that grows under the outhouse, a bike that appears to have been born of a mating between a Lambretta scooter and a giant, mutant pelican. About the nicest thing we can say about the way the MZ looks is that it’s styled more sleekly than the Berlin Wall. And we wouldn’t be a bit surprised if it’s faster, too.

Some motorcycles stood out in history because they were winners. Some earned a place because they were breakthroughs, others simply because they were so good. None of the motorcycles you see here were any of those things. These bikes stood out because they were bad.

FRANK, I NEED TO ASK a favor. I’ve got this Ducati 350 that I want to fit a Dell’Orto carb on, and I don't have the slightest idea how to jet it. What would it take for you to do it for me?” I asked that question more than 10 years ago, and I needed help.

I own a 1973 BMW R75/5, which I use mainly for touring and local riding. I’m having a problem I can’t solve: bad handling while riding over rain grooves. Fortunately, south Florida doesn’t have any, but they really have me at my wit’s end when I run into them elsewhere.
