CURIOUS BUSINESS, THIS PICKING OF THE year’s Ten Best Bikes. 1993 marks the 18th year that Cycle World's staffers have come together to bestow the editorial thumbs-up on the 10 finest motorcycles sold to the American public. Yet that doesn’t tell the whole story.

WHILE VISITING CALIFORNIA LAST month, I borrowed a bike (Harley Wide Glide) from Cycle World and went for a day ride into the mountains with my old friend John Jaeger. John’s had a lot of different bikes, but his latest acquisition is a lowmileage 1976 Honda CB550K, the four-pipe model.

PUTTING MY LEGS AND BACK INTO IT, I pushed the motorcycle down my dusty driveway. We were protected from the sun’s heat by a spring-green canopy of new leaves, but that didn’t mean I was cool. First start-up of a freshly completed racebike is always tense.

I must complain. In your July issue, European Editor Alan Cat heart blames Norton’s financial troubles on greed created in the “make-a-buck Thatcher-Reagan ’80s.” Since when is it a crime to make money, prosper and live well? Why is it Reagan’s fault that Norton’s board of directors could not control their own company?

LAZER LZ4
$130
Budget-conscious riders might want to consider Lazer’s new DOT-approved LZ4 street helmet. The all-new LZ4 features chin and brow vents, an extra-wide eyeport and an anti-allergic cotton jersey liner. Both the tri-color LZ4 Sport and the more conservative LZ4 Legacy are available in S-XL for $130 from motorcycle dealers or from Lazer (P.O. Box 279, Bellvue, CO 80512; 303/482-6623).
Lazer
HOGLIFT HYDRAULIC JACK
$415
Maintenance chores can be greatly simplified with a high-quality hydraulic jack. The Hoglift from OCI (17662 Sampson Lane, Huntington Beach, CA 92647; 714/842-6094) is manufactured from high-quality steel components and has a 1250-pound lift capacity. According to OCI, the Hoglift will work with any brand of motorcycle that has an unobstructed area below the frame. Suggested retail is $415.
Lazer
PLEXIFAIRING 3
$140
Need a break from the elements? Try a Plexifairing 3 from National Cycle (P.O. Box 158, Maywood, IL 60153-0158; 708/343-0400). The Plexifairing 3 uses National Cycle’s patented no-hole Ball Socket mounting system which allows perfect alignment even on adjustable handlebars, claims the manufacturer. Available in clear or DOT-approved solar tint, the Plexifairing costs $140.
Lazer
SUPERTRAPP E.A.R. SERIES EXHAUST
$230
Does your Thumper’s exhaust note give you a headache? If so, call White Bros. (24845 Corbit Place, Yorba Linda, CA 92687; 714/6923404) for one of its new SuperTrapp E.A.R. series exhaust systems. According to White Bros., the E.A.R. system is lighter and quieter than stock, and increases horsepower. Available for most off-road and dual-purpose motorcycles in addition to four-stroke ATVs, E.A.R. exhaust systems retail for $200-$230, depending on the application.
Lazer
MONACO WATERPROOF RIDING SUIT
$1800
BMW’s Monaco riding suit is designed to combine the protective benefits of leather with the breathability and moisture protection of Gore-Tex. The two-piece suit is tailored from 1.2mm vat-tanned cowhide, specially treated so that it does not become saturated by water, and is fitted with a removable Gore-Tex liner. Removable padding is provided at the shoulders, elbows and knees. A back protector is optional. The Monaco leather riding suit is available from BMW dealers at a suggested retail price of $1800.
Lazer
SADDLEMEN DRIFTER SADDLE
$170
Customizing your Harley-Davidson is easy with a low-profile Drifter seat from Saddlemen. The Drifter is built by hand with an emphasis on styling and comfort. It comes in three distinctive designs and retails for $170. For more information, see your dealer or contact Saddlemen (6325 Alondra Blvd., Paramount, CA 90723; 800/397-7709).

HARLEY-DAVIDSON MARKS 1994 by continuing its philosophy of slow, careful evolution. For the coming year, that process is evident in two new models-both to be introduced next spring as ’94½ bikes designed to use the motor company’s latest hardware while staying in step with the demands of Harley traditionalists.

Warren Samuel’s studio photograph of Triumph’s all-new Trident 750 stood alone on this month’s cover of Cycle World. The image focused on the bike’s most important feature, its heavily finned three-cylinder powerplant. The Triple cost $1765, broke the 100-mph barrier with ease and emitted an ear-bending exhaust note from its so-called “Ray-Gun” mufflers.

With his victory in the 125cc class, the 41-year-old Englishman broke the long-standing record held by the late Mike Hailwood. Dunlop’s 1983 win in the Formula One class was documented in “V-Four Victory.” The video is available from Motovideo (27121 Aliso Creek Road, Ste.

YAMAHA’S SECA II TEETERS ON THE brink of compromise. On one hand, it’s an affordable full-size motorcycle that performs well as a daily commuter, and light-duty tourer. It’s also a surprisingly agile canyon carver. Some contend that the bike, although stylish and reasonably priced, lacks the dazzling acceleration and precise handling of its more technically advanced 600cc classmates.

BEST MEANS BETTER THAN GOOD. IT MEANS BETTER, EVEN, THAN BETTER. IT means Wayne Rainey. Nigel Mansell. Joe Montana. Michael Jordan. And it means these 10 motorcycles, each of which is at the very top of its game in its own respective league. For perspective, think for a moment in etymological terms: The word "best" is an adjective that is the superlative of the adjective “good."

CBR1000F
$7500
This is an Open-class sportbike that isn’t exactly a sportbike. What it really is, is an iron fist in a velvet glove. The big CBR’s very smooth, very powerful engine and its extraordinary linked braking system—a system that gives new urgency to the “Stop!” command—make up the fist. The bike’s plush suspension, its cushy saddle and its comfortable, upright seating position are the velvet glove. The CBR100F is a terrific all-rounder that, at $7500, also qualifies as an Open-class bargain buy.
HONDA
ZX-11
With its flowing bodywork and lustrous paint, the ZX-11 looks much like any other Open-class sportbike. It isn’t. It’s been endowed with That Motor, an engine that turns this innocent burgundy bike into a land-based, land-bound missile capable of 176 miles per hour. But the ZX-11 is more than a road-hugging rocket. It’s also quite happy to potter around town or to indulge in comfortable sport-touring. All in all, the ZX-11 is a considerable engineering achievement, and for it, Kawasaki’s engineers have CW's congratulations.
HONDA
GL 1500 GOLD WING
This is a touring bike. Doesn't matter if your tour takes you on a Sunday-morning breakfast ride or to the four corners of the U.S.A., Honda has shown how it’s done, to the extent that most other manufacturers—willingly or unwillingly—have all but ceded this market segment to Honda. Must be nice. The bike certainly is. It’s incredibly plush, and is laden with commodious luggage compartments, cruise control, stereo and the best full-coverage fairing anywhere. Ultra-sporting, it isn’t. Incredibly capable, it is.

GTS 1000A
Behold, an example of what can happen when a Japanese engineering giant throws aside its innate institutional caution and decides to build what it can build, instead of what it perceives as safe to build. The result is the GTS 1000A, a technological tour de force that blends a computer-managed engine with a very stiff chassis and a swingarm front suspension. Whatever you think about the GTS's bulgy, avant-garde form, it’s tough to fault its function. The bike works. We applaud Yamaha’s boldness.
HONDA
HERITAGE SOFTAIL NOSTALGIA
You’ve got to love a bike that goes by the unofficial moniker “Cow Glide.” Mostly, it’s a Harley like any other Harley, riding a Softail frame and a fat, 16-inch front wheel, powered by a V-Twin engine much like all Harley V-Twins. What’s different is this bike’s blatant Holstein look—its black-and-white paint accented by whitewall tires, and the outrageous patches of black-and-white calfhide, complete with hair, that grace its saddlebags and seat panels. Only thing missing? A horn that says “Mooo.”

ON MAY, 23, 1993, HUSQVARNA ACHIEVED SOMEthing that had not been done in world championship motocross for more than a decade: It won the Finnish 500cc GP. Big deal? Sort of. The Husky in question was a four-stroke amid a sea of two-strokes, marking the first time in 14 years that a Thumper had won an MX grand prix.

WEIGHT IS A BIG DEAL when it comes to four-stroke Singles. Price seems to increase exponentially as pounds diminish. At $6195, the Swedish-built Husaberg 600 is expensive, but it weighs 30 pounds less than anything in its class, and gives Open-class two-strokes shivers on the scales.

IT’S A FACT OF LIFE THAT SOMETIMES the simplest tools are the most satisfying. A good, solid front work stand fits into this category, and really comes in handy for any work involving the removal of a front wheel. It’s also a useful item just to have around to ease clean-up chores.

I own a 1986 Honda VFR750 and would like to install some additional accessories in the electrical system, such as a radar detector, extra running lights and an electric vest. How do I know when I’m overloading the system? Is there an easy way to tell how much extra juice any given bike can put out?
