Dirt Riding: The Untold Story
Preserving life on the streets
[no value]
[no value]
Paul Dean
TO MANY STREET RIDERS, DIRT BIKES are instruments of the devil, loathsome contraptions to be avoided at all costs. Only service-station attendants and other primitive life-forms own dirt bikes. And the only thing worse than owning a knobby-tired motorcycle is actually having to ride the wretched thing in the dirt.

In regard to your Editorial in the February, 1985, issue entitled: "I Have Seen The Enemy,” I would like to share with you and your readers an applicable quote from Beccarias’ essay On Crimes and Punishments: “False is the idea of utility that would sacrifice a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience, that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it, that has no remedy for evils, except destruction.” I, too, have saved myself with a quick burst of horsepower from my finely tuned 1973 Honda 750.

FEW THINGS IN LIFE CAN MAKE YOU more miserable than being cold when riding a motorcycle. An impacted wisdom tooth, maybe, or watching slides of your aunt's trip to Duluth; but not by much. So anything that can keep you toasty warm when you’re riding in the frosty cold could become one of your most prized possessions.

Concord jacket
$214.14
Kawasaki’s Hein Gericke Concord leather jacket features a zipper-controlled ventilation system and a removable insulated liner. Ventilation is achieved by unzipping four vertical vents—two above the breast pockets in front, and two on the shoulders in back. Once the vents are open, air enters the front through perforated leather and nylon linings, circulates around the wearer’s body, then exits throught the same type of openings in the shoulder area. In colder weather it’s easy to close the zipper vents and snap-in the “Thermal Lock” insulated liner. Padded elbows, secured sleeve closures, double front wind flap, zippered hand-warmer and storage pockets complete jacket. The Concord is available in men’s sizes 36 through 48 for $214.14 and women's sizes 32 through 42 for $197, from Kawasaki dealers.

DAVID EDWARDS
You can probably have your pick of reasons for motorcycling’s recent sales slump. But one explanation that keeps cropping up is the difficulty new buyers experience when trying to finance that two-wheeled slice of the American dream. Well, there are a couple of companies out there trying to alleviate the problem through a technique that has been used in the automobile world for years but that only recently has been applied to motorcycles: leasing.

Kawasaki's Ninjas continue to shrink. First there was the original Ninja, a 900cc alternative to the GPz1100. The reduced-scale 600 Ninja used that bike for its model. And now, for Japanese domestic consumption, Kawasaki has introduced the smallest Ninja yet: the liquid-cooled GPz400.

EVERY MOTORCYCLE HAS A REASON FOR BEING. With some, that reason just is more obvious than with others. In the case of Yamaha's all-new V-Max, that reason couldn't be any more obvious: power. From the don't-mess-with-me snarl of its exhaust to the way its massive, 1198cc V-Four engine literally dominates the bike's appearance, the V-Max is power distilled to its purest, rawest elements.

NO MATTER HOW YOU INTERPRET IT, YAMAHA'S FIRE-breathing V-Max is about as subtle as a whack across the forehead with a running chainsaw. Its primary function is to leave its competition for dead, to outrun them like they were stuck in neutral.

YAMAHA THREW DOWN THE gauntlet when it introduced the V-Max; this, Yamaha asserted, will be the world's quickest motorcycle, the machine that will take the quarter-mile performance crown away from any pretenders. Any doubt of that was to be erased one fine January day, when Yamaha took a prototype V-Max and Jay "I Set The Records" Gleason to Baylands Raceway in Fremont, California, and recorded the fastest quarter-mile time ever run by a production bike: 10.32 seconds.

ECONOBIKE. EVEN THE NAME has a nasty ring to it, as though it were the two-wheeled equivalent of those tinny, wheezing-for-power commuter cars. With its new 454 LTD, though, Kawasaki is trying to upgrade the econobike's lot in life. And thanks to its cruiser-bike styling and what may be the best mid-displacement inline-Twin ever, the LTD could be one of the sales success stories of 1985.

IT'S NOT EVERY DAY THAT SOMEone can reach back into history and reshape it to his liking. But in a small motorcycle shop in the fog-shrouded midlands of England, a man is doing just that. He's Les Williams, and his particular bit of altered history is the Triumph Trident, a motorcycle he lovingly remodels into what he has named the Triumph Legend.

GOOD BIKE—THAT COULD BE AN epithet for the Kawasaki GPz750. If the GPz were a student, it would have a B average; if it were an athlete, it would qualify for the Olympics but wouldn't win a medal. Two years ago, when Cycle World compared the 1983 GPz750 to Honda's 750 Interceptor and Suzuki's GS750E, it was a classic case of a good performer pitted against two stellar ones.

RIDING OFF-ROAD DURING THE WINter months can be great fun—or it can be sheer misery. The key is in being properly dressed. But while most die-hard off-road riders own insulated underwear and a reasonable enduro jacket, they usually have found that warm gloves designed for winter off-road riding simply don’t exist.

STEVE ANDERSON
WIND BUFFETING MY HELmet, I watched the tach needle creep up toward 11,000 rpm. The long front straight was blurring through the fairing bubble, passing by far too quickly for its more-than-one-mile length. Despite the speed, the chin-on-the-gas-tank tuck allowed by clip-ons and aft-mounted footpegs, along with a full fairing, made the high speed comfortable, almost natural.

Houston is a funny place. For 18 years it has been where the chase for the AMA's Grand National Championship begins, despite the fact that the Astrodome's tight, artificial tracks are as different as you can get from the the 100-mph-plus mile and half-mile circuits that make up the majority of the Camel Pro Series.

How does a bike with hub-center steering steer sharply to the right? I can understand left turns, but it seems to me than in right turns, the rear of the tire would bang into the swingarm. Please illuminate me on this matter. I've not seen one of these vehicles in real life, so maybe I'm missing something....
