Nightmare on Main Street
[no value]
[no value]
Paul Dean
IT WASN'T OUR VERY WORST NIGHTmare, but it was right up there among the biggies, those scary ones in which you fall forever into a bottomless abyss or feel like you're stuck in molasses when trying to run from certain death. But this one is a nightmare no longer; it’s suddenly a frightening reality.

When Steve Thompson writes, “there is nothing else like it, anywhere..."regarding the Isle of Man (September, 1987), it literally brought tears to my eyes. I feel extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to see Duke and Armstrong (1955), Surtees and McIntire (1959), and Hailwood and Agostini (1969), so my Island education has covered most of the Golden years of the T.T. In 1959, on the day before the Senior TT, John Surtees, John Hartle and I did a lap of the mountain course in my Porsche with John S. doing the driving.

MARK IT DOWN AS MOTORCYCLING’S BLACK THURSDAY. Because on Thursday, July 23, 1987, Senator John Danforth, a Republican from Missouri, introduced to the U.S. Senate a bill he has called the “Motorcycle Safety Act of 1987.” If that bill is passed, motorcycling is likely never to be the same.

LOOK HOW FAR WE'VE COME. IN REcent years, the threat of burned ignition points has been completely eliminated. New motorcycles don’t leak oil. And even valve adjustments may soon be filed away in the nasty memories book, somewhere between the chapter on polio and the one on smallpox.

SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE. IN 1957, HARLEY-DAVidson first started building Sportsters. Now, 30 years later, Harley is still building Sportsters. Just as in the beginning, a Sportster is a big, fast, rowdy motorcycle, a machine that’s all bones and muscle and gristle, and no fat at all.

THE BIKE THAT BUELL BUILT
There’s this guy in Wisconsin who thinks he can build the world’s best sportbike, using—now get this—a Harley-Davidson engine. You know something? He’s getting very close.

THIS WASN’T WORKING OUT AT ALL. It was a simple plan, poetic in its symbolism. Take the Buell RR1000 Battletwin, America’s only production sportbike, and ride it around the monument-strewn streets of Washington, D.C. The only way to get more patriotic photos would be to have a leather-swaddled Oliver North perched atop the bike.

ON A ROSE-COLORED SUMMER AFTERNOON, MY WHITE silk scarf taps gently at my back, keeping time to my reverie of the Jazz Age and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Suddenly, a black Cadillac limousine whizzes past, then screeches to a stop. Its four doors fling open at the same moment, and four young Japanese jump out.

WHY SHOULD WE CHANGE A PROVEN WINNER? it’s already the best.” That was the Honda representative’s immediate reply when we questioned him about the 1988 CR500R, which is only very slightly changed compared with last year’s model. But he had a point.

TAL NEWHART
I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S MORE DANGEROUS, COMPULSIVE behavior or paychecks. One thing’s certain though: The combination often leads to some of life’s most bizarre adventures. I know this all too well, because one stunning, blue afternoon not too long ago, I got paid, then made the mistake of succumbing to what was initially a simple and straightforward urge: I wanted a margarita.

IT WAS BACK IN 1970 THAT HONDA introduced to the world a dubious-looking device that resembled nothing as much as the aftereffect of a collision between a motorcycle and three oversized do-nuts. It was called the US90, and it ultimately became the cornerstone for a multi-million-dollar ATV industry.

WHERE THERE IS RACING, there are winners and losers; that much is obvious. But while stopwatches and record books tell us who are—or were—the winners, those same instruments don’t point out the best winners. To remedy that situation, we’ve reviewed the list of American racers whose exploits on motorcycles have brightened the pages of CYCLE WORLD during the past two-and-a-half decades, and come up with the 25 who we think were the best.

KEN FRANKEL
Everyone knows who Kenny Roberts is, but considerably fewer people have heard of John Kocinski and Calvin Rayborn III. Despite the comparative no-name status of these two young American roadracers, however, Kenny Roberts thrust them into the international limelight in late July of this year by putting them on Team Roberts/ Lucky Strike's entry in Japan's Suzuka 8-Hour endurance race.

As a survivor of an inner-tube blow-out on the interstate, I would like to offer these additions to your advice on how to deal with a flat tire: 1) Ride with both hands on the bars and both feet on the pegs at all times; it may be a bit tiring, but in the event of an emergency you may not have time to get any loose members into position.
