SOMETIMES A TOURING RIDER’S BEST friend-after an electric vest and a good set of raingear-is serendipity. I was reminded of this last summer during a week’s riding vacation in Wales. My friend Charles Davis and I had talked of riding around the British Isles since college days, the original plan being a rorty three months aboard used Triumphs.

THE STARTING OF A MOTORCYCLE CAN be routine or it can be theater. It can be ridiculous or sublime. A well-tuned machine of the 1960s would start within a few kicks. But common trouble could transform the attempt into an exhibition of muscle, swearing and frustration.

For the past few months the Letters section has left me quite disappointed. I have come to the conclusion that too many motorcyclists are bitching, whining cry babies who apparently have nothing better to do than moan to Cycle World about profanity, sexism, cigarette ads and anti-Harley remarks.

Alan Cathcart
THANKS TO A MID-YEAR loan of nearly $65 million, courtesy of a German bank, the near-term future of Germany's MZ (which means Motorradwerke Zschopau, or Zschopau Motorcycle Factory, after the firm's hometown) seems assured. First order of business is to get the MZ Skorpion, introduced a year ago at Britain’s Birmingham Motor Show, into production with its new Yamaha XTZ660 engine (see Roundup, Cycle World, November, 1993).

Jimmy Lewis
DON'T WORRY THAT Husqvarna's 1994 twostroke dirtbikes, available in WXC cross-country and WXE enduro forms, show minor technical improvements over the 1993 line. Those changes yield substantial gains. Foremost is in the 45mm Showa fork, which got a valving change that results in a much plusher ride this fixed the biggest problem detracting from the otherwise excellent package presented by the Husky 360.

BLAME IT ON BELGARDA, the company that imports Yamahas into Italy. Belgarda's brass determined that customers wanted something different in a dualpurpose mount. So the company conjured up the Belgarda Yamaha TT600. The bike’s engine is the same found in the TT and XT600s sold here from 1984 through 1989, and so is its frame.

MISSING WITH SUCCESS IS TRICKY BUSINESS. Fixing something that ain't broke has obvious pitfalls. Then again, in an arena as competitive as motorcycle marketing. staying the same is a sure way to fall behind. This was the dilemma Honda faced with the tour-year-old VFR75OF. Since its introduction in 1990, the VFR750 has been voted “Best 750 Streetbike” each and every year in Cycle World's annual “Ten Best Bikes” voting.

Indeed, though its suspension and drivetrain are built in Japan and shipped here ready-to-go, the Shadow is assembled at Honda's plant in Marysville, Ohio, with everything else sourced and built here.

That "1500" designation is real stuff. Mr. Vulcan forges his horsepower in a great brute of an engine that displaces 1470cc.

OSCAR WILDE, IN THE IMPORtance of Being Earnest, wrote that "In matters of great importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing." When designing its Vulcan 750, Kawasaki apparently did not subscribe to Wilde's philosophy, which might explain why testers ranked the Vulcan's appearance at the bottom of their respective lists.

DID YOU SAY "HORSEPOWER" and "mini-cruiser" in the same sentence? If so, you must be talking about the Vulcan 500. That's good, because the bike gets no kudos for its styling. This is supposed to be a VTwin class, so the little inline-Twin Vulcan doesn't exactly fit.

THE VIRAGO 535 SPECIAL IS meant to stand out in a crowd. Some $300 more expensive than the base 535, it sports what Yamaha calls its "custom-cruiser look," which includes a two-tone paint scheme and some added chrome. The strategy works. The aura of this smallest of the V-Twin Yamahas is of cruiser bits surrounding a greatlooking hunk of motor.

ES21
KEVIN CAMERON
OUTDRAWING REALITY ITSELF AT THE RECENT Tokyo Motor Show was Honda's ES21 futuretech idea bike. Do you like food for thought? Here's a whole meal. Let's dine. The scanty official info says ES21 is powered by a hydrogen-fuel battery that drives a super-conducting electric motor.

NOSTALGIA IS A POWERFUL TOOL. ITS ROSE-TINTed glasses do a great job of filtering out the painful truth of yesterdays when anything Made in Japan could be expected to fall apart in days, when Triumph motorcycles leaked oil on your girlfriend's dad's driveway, and when every other ride aboard anything British resulted in shorted-out electrics and a long push home.

THERE'S NO QUESTION IT HAS CHARACter. It can compete in the charisma sweepstakes with any bold BMW Boxer, flashy Ducati V-Twin, or gutsy Triumph Triple. It has as much-if not more-personality as these European favorites. "It" is Yamaha's 10-valve parallel-Twin, the only Japanese engine in production that comes close to displaying such a disposition.

INBREEDING, I THINK. THAT'S THE problem. Gotta be. Inbreeding, see, gets you cats with six toes on each foot, and human beings with diminished mental capacities. So, what do you get when you breed a car with a motorcycle? You get the American Thunder Tryke.

IT'S CALLED SUPERMOTO AND IT ATtracts riders from all motorcycle racing disciplines for a spark-slinging affair combining the tastiest elements of dirt-track and roadracing. Riders like four-time 500 GP champ Eddie Lawson and Supercross-champturned-roadracer Jean-Michel Bayle come to Paris for high fun and low-pressure competition on modified Open-class dirtbikes.

The big question in AMA racing is whether Harley-Davidson’s long-awaited V-Twin-powered Superbike will make it to the starting line this year. At presstime, the company was very close to signing former Muzzy Kawasaki rider Miguel DuHamel.

I own a 1985 Kawasaki 900 Ninja that has about 40,000 miles on the odometer. While I have maintained it immaculately, it needs a new cam chain. My Kawasaki dealer tells me it will be necessary to drop the engine and split the cases, despite the chain being mounted on the left side of the engine.
