HARD FOR ME TO BELIEVE, BUT IT’S closing in on 25 years since I bought my first streetbike. I was 15 that spring of 1971, about to graduate from my sophomore year at Thomas Stone High School, but still a good six months away from that holiest of grails, a driver’s license.

As I CLIMBED INTO MY SALT-SPATTERED van and headed down our driveway yesterday afternoon, I almost had to laugh (but not quite) at the sheer dismalness of the winter day: dark and wet with heavy fog and big snow clumps flopping out of trees (Fap!).

PASSENGER-VEHICLE FUEL ECONOMY has two faces. Little power is used while cruising at highway speeds, but for acceleration, eight or 10 times more may be required. In the past, this has been “solved" by giving every passenger vehicle an engine much bigger and heavier than needed for cruising-just so it could accelerate as necessary.

THERE’S ANOTHER NEOstandard in Japan, but American Suzuki isn't saying much about the new GSF1200, aka the Bandit 1200. Just introduced in the domestic market, and expected to go on sale in Europe next year, the GSF is powered by an enlarged version of the venerable GSX R1100 engine.

Housed in that frame will be a revised 900cc Triple with cylinders canted forward like Yamaha’s FZR models. Cosworth Engineering, which built crankcases for several Triumph models, will reportedly help develop and produce those engines.

SUZUKI HAS LET IT BE known that it will fight hard in Japan's new mini-Thumper war. It has just introduced a new DR250R Dual Sport for a late 1995 release in Japan. Specs suggest the DR, targeted to compete against the Yamaha TT250R, Honda XR250R (now available in a D-P version) and Kawasaki KLX250, will be a contender for best-in-class honors.

As we edged toward the new decade's first summer, Cycle World covered flat-track action from the Astrodome Nationals in Houston, Texas, a ladies trials competition in San Antonio, Spain, and bikes from here and abroad. “Crash, Pop, Bang, Crunch, Endo, Center Punch, Wobble, Dog Pile, High Side, Bail, Rattle Bars, Wahoo, They Shore Like That,” was what we called the flat-track story.

LOOK, WE COULD BE WRONG ABOUT this. But we suspect that the American enthusiast's appetite for sheer, mind-numbing performance is approaching saturation. We suspect that bikes have gotten quick enough, and fast enough, and secure-handling enough, that only the top percentile of riders can use them to their fullest capabilities, and we suspect that as the riding public ages, a declining number is apt to put up with sporting ergonomics.

OH, H0W THE MIGHTY HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN! SOMEHOW LOST IN All. THE HOOPLA AND EXCITEMENT surrounding the recent arrival of 900cc sportbikes is a pair of Open-class performance leaders, the Suzuki GSX-R1100 and the Yamaha FZR1000. No doubt the 900 formula that has given us the Honda CBR900RR. the Ducati 916 and the Kawasaki ZX-9 delivers a superb balance of power to weight, but the additional performance boost that liter-plus sportbikes offer throughout the power curve still holds high appeal for those of us who live for maximum two-wheeled rush. While smaller and lighter may equate to better handling on a tight or unfamiliar stretch of twisties, nothing quite matches the smooth, rhythmic experience of working a torque-strong big-bore up a zig-zag mountain grade.

DAVID JOHNSON
THIS IS A STORY OF DREAMS-DREAMS COME TRUE, dreams deferred and dreams abandoned. More than two decades ago, a young industrial designer named Craig Vetter found fame and fortune by designing aftermarket fairings and other touring-oriented accessories.

DOES THE NAME CRAIG VETTER RING A BELL? IF YOU'RE 40-something it does. You'll remember the Triumph Hurricane of the 1970s, maybe the Mystery Ship of the 1980s. You'll certainly remember his Windjammer fairings—probably because you owned one.

ERIK BUELL IS NOT ONE TO MAKE excuses, neither for himself nor his product. When we phoned Buell to inform him that our long-term Thunderbolt S-2 had developed an oil leak—prompted by an inadequately torqued rockerbox bolt that, in turn, resulted in a failed lower rockercover-to-cylinder-head gasket—he assured us that any problems encountered would be covered under the bike's one-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.

MOTOCROSS IS A CUT-THROAT BUSINESS. ESPECIALLY THE 250cc class. For manufacturers, no other segment of the market demands an all-new model each year just to stay competitive. A lot is at stake. Build a sub-par machine and the grapevine knows it almost before the first bike is uncrated—kiss sales to Amateurs goodbye and put your Pro team behind an 8-ball of gigantic proportions.

SOME THINGS JUST DON'T MAKE SENSE. Paying almost $250 for a stock replacement seat on a 1982 Seca 650—a bike worth maybe $1000—is one of them. That’s the predicament Mr. Editor Edwards faced when the time came to renew the seating accommodations on his venerable, 25,000-mile Yamaha: A local dealership quoted $243 for a factory-replacement seat.

LET'S GET ONE THING CLEAR. World Superbike Champion Carl Fogarty doesn't hate Americans. Rephrase that: Carl Fogarty doesn’t hate Americans any more than he hates anybody else. “Sure, I want to kick their asses at Daytona. I want to beat anybody anytime I race anywhere," he explains.

It now appears likely that 1994 was Cagiva’s final year as a player in GP racing’s color, pageantry and politics. Beset by financial problems and answering to bankers who insist that the company race something it sells, Cagiva apparently has pulled the plug.

I have a brand-new 1995 Harley-Davidson FXDS Convertible, and I would like to replace the rear shocks with aftermarket units from Koni. I know that Progressive Suspension also makes shocks that work well on Harleys, but I don’t like their complicated and inconvenient method of spring adjustment.
