LIKE MOST PEOPLE, I JUST LOVE TO BE right. My ego is massaged in all the proper places when I make a statement that I think is full of wisdom and insight, and later events prove me 100-percent correct. Still, there are those rare occasions when I’d much rather end up being dead-wrong.

THE TRUCK DRIVER NEVER SAW ME. I knew that as soon as his left-front wheel began to deflect from straight-ahead. The Beemer was quick, but not that quick, so the only way out was to brake like my life depended on it. Because it did. I braked hard, slammed two downshifts and faded left.

Please settle a difference of opinion. I say 250cc is the best size for a beginning rider's first bike. My friend says it's 550cc, and the lady at the local convenience store is happy with her 650 after starting out on a 900. What size is really best?

It may be a little early, but the first 1988 Kawasaki is already released here in Japan. It's the 250 Ninja, and the restyled and improved Ninjette will also be Kawasaki's first 1988 model in America. It's scheduled for introduction in there sometime in early summer of this year.

News leaking out of Italy indicates that the owners of Cagiva, the brothers Castiglioni, are about to give themselves a special present for 1987. Gianfranco and Claudio Castiglioni, who in addition to their own Cagiva concern have recently bought Husqvarna and, before that, Ducati, are now after the Moto Morini company.

IN THE DAYS OF THE OLD west, about the only reason people traveled through the desolate western Arizona desert to Yuma was to spend a few years at the territorial prison. Located along the Arizona/Mexico border on Interstate 8, Yuma now attracts not only the Snowbirds—what the locals call wintering retired folks—but also ATV riders by the thousands because it's the nearest major city to the Glamis Sand Dunes, one of the largest dune systems in the country.

MOTORCYCLE ENGINE DISPLACEMENT IS AS MUCH a state of mind as it is a measurement. Because depending on who you talk to, it can mean completely different things. To a racer, displacement is a class. To an insurance writer, it's a premium. To a technician, it's pi times one-half the bore squared, times the stroke, times the number of cylinders.

DESPITE THE IMPLICATIONS OF HONDA'S "KNOCK the Ninja" TV commercial, when it comes to production-class roadracing, the Hurricane 600's competition doesn't come from Kawasaki. Instead, the Yamaha FZ600 is the bike to beat. For evidence, you need look no farther than Willow Springs Raceway, a 2.5-mile road course cut into the barrens of California's Mojave Desert, within sonicboom earshot of Edwards Air Force Base.

LEAF THROUGH AN EARLY ISSUE of CYCLE WORLD, one of '62 or '63 vintage, and, just like today, you'll encounter all kinds of motorcycle advertisements. Some are for familiar brands, like Honda, Triumph, Bultaco and BMW, while others sing the praises of rarer stock of the era, such as Rabbit, Centaur, Tohatsu and Capriolo.

MAKE THE MOST WITH WHAT YOU'VE GOT. That's Yamaha's current philosophy for conceiving and building motorcycles. It's an intelligent tactic born out of the motorcycle industry's need to slow the runaway technology race that, over the past decade or so, has rendered too many models obsolete after just one or two seasons on the showroom floor.

FOR ALMOST THREE YEARS, ONE bike has been the clear sales leader among all sportbikes: Kawasaki’s Ninja 600. The fastest and quickest of the 600s, the Ninja also has offered an excellent balance between handling, power and comfort, which—along with a memorable name and the right lookhelped it to become the class favorite.

GIVEN THIS COUNTRY'S ATTItudes toward motorcycles over the years, it’s not surprising that two-wheelers have been poorly represented in the nation’s museums of history, even as simple artifacts. Not surprising, but irritating to those of us who know the special rewards of motorcycling, particularly to those who sense how significant those rewards were in the earliest years of the wheeled century.
