SUPER BOWL SUNDAY IS ALWAYS A good time to go for a ride. Nearby Ortega Highway, usually clogged with sightseers and boat-pullers, is blissfully devoid of most traffic, minimizing blitz passes on the double-yellow lines that California’s Department of Public Safety has seen fit to plaster along most of the twisting road’s length.

MY OLD RIDING PAL FROM CALIFORNIA, Hank Murdoch, has owned a lot of different motorcycles of older and newer vintage, but he once told me his standard of excellence in handling is still the Bultaco 250 Metralla he had 20-some years ago. Why the Metralla?

TOOLS DISAPPEAR. IN AN IDEAL WORLD, populated by conscious, thinking, moral beings, they ought not to. That’s why we have lockable toolboxes, too heavy to steal. That’s why shops have tool cribs, sign-out sheets and vigilant tool superintendents.

HIDE A HOOK
$30
If your pickup truck is not equipped with heavy-duty tie-down hooks, you might want to consider Hide A Hook. These are removable, 2 1/2 x 2 3/4-inch tie-down loops that insert into existing stake-pocket holes of most American and late-model foreign-made pickup trucks and retract automatically when not in use. No drilling is required, says the manufacturer, and the stainless steel construction will not rust. Sug gested retail price is $30 per pair.

Metzeler developed its sport-oriented ME Z2 Laser to match the performance characteristics of its ME Z2 rear tire. The arrow-shaped tread design is similar to that of the popular ME33 Laser, but the center and shoulder areas were reworked for a quieter, more comfortable ride and improved stability on uneven road surfaces, says the manufacturer. Four sizes are available, and prices start at $127. For more information, contact your local motorcycle dealer or Metzeler, 410 Eagleview Blvd., Suite 106, Exton, PA 19341; 610/458-9662.

Retail price is $35 per set. For more information, contact your local dealer or Tony Mills International Inc., 4401 Walden Ave., Lancaster, NY 14086; 716/681-8806.

DETAILS ARE IN ON Aprilia’s MOTO’ 6.5, although the explanation for why the company adds an apostrophe after MOTO remains elusive. Aprilia describes the 6.5 as being “for people who want a motorcycle, but not a large, heavy one, who want to get about the time freely and make short to medium trips without giving up the pleasure of a real motorcycle.”

IT’S THE DREAM OF EVERY aspiring designer to see their work adopted by a major manufacturer, either as a broad concept or in fine detail. But design is increasingly viewed as a fundamental aspect of manufacturing and engineering, making it harder for a designer to break into the field without expertise in these other areas.

NOPE, GUESS AGAIN. HAVE a closer look. The low-ridin' custom V-Twin you see before you is not a chopped Harley-Davidson. In fact, it began life on an assembly line in Hamamatsu, Japan, one of thousands of 1994 Suzuki VL1400 Intruders. That’s before aftermarket empresario Ken Boyko of Cobra Engineering commissioned Time Machine’s Denny Berg to transform it into one cool cruiser.

DENNY BERG WASN'T EXACTLY BORN TO CUSTOMIZE, BUT IT DIDN'T TAKE HIM long. “When I was 5, I took the fenders off my first tricycle and painted it red. I thought it looked pretty cool, but, boy, was Dad pissed,” laughs Berg. In 1970, at age 17, Berg built his first chopper, a Honda CB450—“long front end, all that stuff,” he remembers.

IN RECENT SOLO TESTS OF THE HONDA CBR600F3 AND the Kawasaki ZX-6R, each bike, in turn, took the world by storm. First, the F3 set marks for quarter-mile acceleration that 750s of a few years ago would be proud of. Then, it was the all-new ZX-6R flying the middleweight colors deepest into 750cc territory, with a dragstrip showing of 10.89 seconds at 128 mph, backed by a top speed run of 154 mph.

YAMAHA'S XJR1200 IS A REMINDER OF days in the late '70s and early '80s when big-bore beasts freight-trained down America's highways and tore up its backroads. It is a modern rendition of the UJM—the Universal Japanese Motorcycle. It takes its styling cues and equipment list from the street-racers that hard-riding Americans once built in backyards and garages all across the county, a history lesson on wheels.

JAPANESE ENTHUSIASTS WILL ROADRACE ANYTHING. I mean, anything. In the U.S., it's gotta be sportbikes. But in Japan, well, just check out the burgeoning Monster-Naked class, for instance, where supposedly mild-mannered neo-standards are hot-rodded without mercy and then turned loose just to see what everybody’s got.

The Day Board-Track Died
AN END TO THE ERA WHEN MAGNIFICENT MEN AND THEIR RACING MACHINES RULED SPLINTER ROAD
[no value]
[no value]
BRENDA BUTTNER
ON THAT DAY, THE DAY BOARD-track died, grandstands all across the country thundered with the rattle of packed tracks and the rumble of excited crowds. And on that day, the day board-track died, dashing men with nicknames like “Dare Devil,” “Brute,” and “Fearless” aboard sleek machines with names even more mythic—Cyclones, Excelsiors and Emblems—exploded across the steep banking at triple-digit speeds.

Help for your chain, gang?
[no value]

ADJUSTING YOUR MOTORCYCLE’S DRIVE chain is not as easy as it may appear. Get it wrong, and your bike could suffer premature chain and sprocket wear, as well as a possible loss of stability and handling. Motorcycles do, obviously, have provisions for chain adjustment, including little reference marks on both sides of the rear axle; but due to what is called a “stack-up” of tolerances in the manufacture of all the components between the rear-wheel sprocket and the countershaft sprocket, those reference marks are no guarantee of proper chain alignment.

MICK DOOHAN DOMINATED GRAND PRIX MOTORCYCLE roadracing in 1994. Indeed, en route to the 500cc World Roadracing Championship, he stood atop the victory podium an amazing nine times. This, after a 1992 crash and post-operative complications that almost ended the 30-year-old Australian's career.

IN A SENSE, GETTING A journalistic guest ride aboard an exclusive factory racer is an exercise in self-moderation. Having been a racer myself long before I ever stumbled upon word processing, my competitive side still wants to find out how I fare against the guys who ride these bikes on a continuous basis.

WHILE WINNING A 500cc GP World Championship is of unquestionable importance, Honda's strong history in four-stroke racing suggests that a World Superbike title would be of equal value in the corporate eye. That’s why the RC45, Honda’s all-new V-Four Superbike, was created.

FIGURES CAN BE DECEIVing, but in this case, they're not. The relatively few miles we've accumulated on our long-term, '93 Suzuki GSX-R750, in relation to the time we’ve spent with the machine, says quite a bit. Truth be told, most staffers found the GSX-R's riding position uncomfortable for anything more than aggressive sportriding.

The American Motorcyclist Association proposes to go its own way with its for-profit subsidiary, Paradama, offering the AMA’s race program. Roger Edmondson, whose CCS organization produced the AMA’s roadracing under contract for 10 years, is offering another.

I need some technical advice regarding sparkplugs for my '93 Honda ST1100 with 10,000 miles on the odometer. The owner’s manual specifies an NGK CR8EH-9 plug for regular riding, but I can’t get more than 3000 or 4000 miles on them before they begin misfiring under a heavy throttle load or above 5000 rpm.
