David Edwards
ABOUT ONCE A MONTH, IT SEEMS, I GET a phone call. “You own a Seca 650, right?” a disembodied voice on the other end of the line asks. “I do.” “Uh, you interested in selling it?” Long-time readers may remember the tale of my silver Yamaha Seca 650, bought new in September of 1982, purchase price $3340.96 all-up.

ABOUT 14 YEARS AGO, WHEN I FIRST GOT my pilot’s license, I used to regularly rent a beat-up old Cessna 150 from the Orange County airport, near the CW offices in California. One day when I was at the airport, signing out the 150 for a weekend flight, my former flying instructor asked where I was going.

WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, I PLAYED a lot of chess, but I never rose above what I’ll call the “coping stage.” That is the condition in which I could just manage to respond competently to my opponent’s moves, but had no capacity left for any long-range strategy.

I really enjoyed your Kal Kustoms article (“California Specials,” CW, November). What a group of bikes! My favorites were the Bimota and the Triumph street-tracker. But that Arlen Ness ’57 Chevy “body bike?” What is up with this guy? That thing isn’t a motorcycle, it’s a car.

The FC Sportster kit is designed to alter the appearance and handling of your late-model Harley-Davidson Sportster.

A, Santee, CA 92071; 619/562-1440.

GANDER BRAND DEERSKIN GLOVES

Alberta Glove Company’s Gander Brand deerskin gloves are said to be softer and more protective than their cowhide counterparts.

MAAS POLISHING CREME

ON THE SURFACE, DRAG racing is a stripped-down, no-nonsense American activity. Simple, right? Just whack open the throttle and bang a few up-shifts. How hard is that? Well, let’s take an 8.36-second run up to 170 mph with Kent Stotz, winner of the inaugural Cycle World Quickest Streetbike Shootout.

A cafe-racer from BMW? If reports in England's Motor Cycle News are correct, expect a stripped-down sport Boxer late in 1996, tentatively dubbed the R1100S. Fifth of the new-generation R-models, it would resemble the concept sportbike unveiled to favorable response at last year's Cologne Show.

Look for a hard-edged hot-rod from Moto Guzzi in 1996, a naked neo-standard built around a fuel-injected version of the two-valve engine used in the Sport 1100. Known inside the Mandello factory as the KK, the aggressively styled bike will have a tubular-steel, twin-loop frame, a Showa upside-down fork and a single Koni rear shock.

HONDA WILL FIELD A PROTOtype 500cc V-Twin two-stroke in next year’s grand prix roadracing series, and a production version will be offered for sale in 1997. The present 180-plus-horsepower four-cylinder bikes are stalled, generally unable to improve on laptimes from 1991-92 despite improvements in every area of design.

Laverda has joined Europe’s naked-bike movement with its Ghost 650, a neo-standard powered by the Italian company’s 668cc, air/oil-cooled parallel-Twin. A trellis-type steel frame replaces the 650 sportbike’s alloy twin-spar affair, giving the Ghost a decidedly Ducati Monster-esque flair.

OUR PREDICTION FOR most likely Suzuki soon to be in showrooms? You’re lookin’ at it. Unveiled at the Paris Show in the shadow of the all-new GSX-R750, the Bandit 1200S didn’t get much attention, but expect to see it in the U.S. for 1996, probably as an early-release ’97 model.

Future-think was sprinkled from cover to cover in this issue. Up front, we featured the first-ever rotary-powered motorcycle, the cobby-looking Hercules 2000. Not overly impressed, we said, “The axial cooling fins give the Hercules a jet-age look, not shared by many of its motorcycle parts.” • Going from the weird to the wild, we forecasted what the Japanese had up their corporate sleeves in "Japan’s Secret Superbombs” and even conjured up drawings of these bikes to be.

THE RESULTS ARE IN. Laverda's Return From The Dead is paying off, thanks to the commitment of its new owner, Francesco Tognon, who two years ago rescued the company from its creditors. Tognon has invested billions of lira, and the tiny company's 50 employees have invested in themselves and their futures.

THUNDER CAT! THE NEWS FROM the Paris Show breaks, inching tantalizingly from the fax machine. Yamaha's uprated YZF600R is born and, except where limited by excess-fun laws (Germany, Switzerland, etc.), it claims to push 600 power beyond the 100-bhp mark.

YOU WATCH THE BROWN TAURUS poke its nose out of the alley to your right. He’s got to stop, you think, even as you bring two fingers up to cover the brake lever. Instead, the Ford rolls on and your pulse leaps as you’re hard on the brakes, bench pressing the handlebar, slithering away speed as quickly as possible.

THE MODERN MOTORCYCLE IS AN impressive vehicle, with its quick, responsive handling, its rapid acceleration and braking, and its high-G turning ability. Yet take away the last decade of tire technology, and almost none of these qualities would remain.

IT SAID A LOT ABOUT THE DAY WHEN I DISCOVERED a whole new reason for hanging off. Shifting across the saddle in the right-left-right combination that ends a lap at the Streets of Willow Springs, I could take some time at the top, posting high on the pegs...and get a few brief shining moments of circulation back into my knees.

BLEEDING A BRAKE SYSTEM CAN BE A tedious, messy task. Manual bleeding, wherein one person pumps the brake lever or pedal while another opens and closes the caliper bleeder valve, can be time consuming and is not always effective. Power bleeders, the kind found in better automotive garages and motorcycle shops, are much quicker and remove recalcitrant air bubbles more efficiently but are expensive, costing about $250.

JIMMY LEWIS
ALL PIECES OF THE PUZZLE FIT EXACTLY. CYCLE World had one of the first Honda XR400s in the country. Editor-in-Chief Edwards demanded a torturous reliability test on this long-awaited, next-generation XR. Honda, craving a big PR splash for its all-new four-stroke weapon, offered me a spot on its three-man Nevada Rally team. Plus, I love long-distance off-road races. All the pieces were in place, it was rally time!

She's a revver, no?

Paul Dean
I own a 1982 Kawasaki KZ305 that is basically stock as far as I know. Its problem is that at highway speeds, 55 mph, the engine is revving at 7500 rpm-8000 if I'm trying to get a good run at a hill. If I don't get a run, the engine will bog down to around 6000 or so going up hills.
