WITH CERTAIN MOTORCYCLES, THERE IS a defining moment when you know you are going to have to buy one, sooner or later. A gear suddenly locks to its shaft and the two spin as one, idea and destiny together. That happened to me when I was at the Harley-Davidson plant in York, Pennsylvania, last fall, doing a story for Big Twin magazine, our all-Harleys sister publication.

BACK IN 1965, ANY U.S. YAMAHA dealer could order a 250cc TD1-B roadracer for just under $900, and the customer could have it for a suggested $1147. Pistons were $5, rings were $3. In 1972, the TA250 racebike was $1850. And when Yamaha released its famous, epoch-making TZ four-cylinder 750 in 1974, it was $3600.

Regarding Peter Egan’s “Are dirtbikes ugly or is it just me?” column (Leanings, August, 1996): I’ve got to agree. I think the last nice-looking dirtbikes were the Yamaha XT500s of 1979-80. Then there were the old BSA 441 Victors and Triumph Trophys, which bring back memories of Steve McQueen in the ISDT. The BSA 441 with its yellow/aluminum tank, upswept pipe and mini-muffler was a blast to ride just about anywhere.

MID-WEIGHT GLOVES
$34
Buying motorcycle gloves can be confusing, especially when you consider the wide variety of options that are available. With their affordable price and sensible styling, the Mid-Weight gloves from Tour Master (2360 Townsgate Rd., Westlake Village, CA 91361; 805/373-6868) may reduce your purchasing anxiety. Fashioned from premium-grade leather, the cruising-style gloves boast elastic cuffs, snap-down leather wrist straps and double-reinforced palms. Sold through motorcycle dealers, the $34 Mid-Weights come in black only in XS-XXL sizes.
Tour Master
HEADLIGHT AND FORK SHROUD
$99
When an afternoon trail ride inadvertently becomes a night ride, proper lighting is imperative. With a headlight and fork shroud from Cycra Racing Systems (6159 Radekin Rd., Columbus, OH 43232; 614/8669662), converting a stock MXer to enduro trim can be simple. The sleek, one-piece plastic shroud and 55-watt headlight fits most conventional-forked, late-model dirtbikes. The combination costs $99 from motorcycle dealers or direct from Cycra.
Tour Master
BALLISTIC SHOCK BELT
$30
Long days in the saddle can be rough on your spine, which is why EVS Sports Protection (2900 Airport Ave., Ste. F, Santa Monica, CA 90405; 310/390-7343) developed the Ballistic Shock Belt. Fashioned from ballistic nylon, the belt supports the lower back and doesn’t bunch up around the waist and hips. Available for $30 from EVS, it comes in black/black and black/purple, in M-XXL sizes.
Tour Master
TRIPLE CLAMP
$480
Honda’s CBR900RR captured Best Open-Class Streetbike honors in this year’s Cycle World Ten Best Bikes, so, in regard to modifications, it would seem that the adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” would apply. Not according to Two Brothers Racing (1715 E. Wilshire Ave., #701, Santa Ana, CA 92705; 714/550-6070). Designed for 1993-96 models, TBR’s polished, billet-aluminum tripleclamp assembly offers 5mm less offset for improved front-end feedback. Three pounds lighter than stock, it retails for $480.
Tour Master
PRO TOURER TANKBAG
$175
Motorcyclists with a penchant for photography will appreciate the Pro Tourer camera tankbag from Art Express (236 West 27th St., New York, NY 10001; 800/638-7258). Measuring 13 x 11 x 6 inches, the cordura nylon bag accommodates two cameras, six lenses and a small flash. Roomy side pockets hold film and incidentals. A rain cover is standard. Available from Art Express, the Pro Tourer costs $175.
Tour Master
CALIPERS
$339
Many aftermarket brake calipers require custom bracketry for fitment. Not so with the latest caliper from Performance Machine (15535 Garfield Ave., Paramount, CA 90723; 310/6346532). Intended for 1984-and-up Harley-Davidson Big Twins, the fourpiston, differential-bore caliper bolts directly to the stock fork. Available for single- or dual-disc applications, the caliper costs $339 from motorcycle dealers.
Tour Master
VALKYRIE SEAT
$329 to $1035
With Honda’s Gold Wing-engined Valkyrie currently in the cruiser spotlight, aftermarket products for the bike are popping up left and right. Take, for instance, the Valkyrie Saddle System from Corbin Pacific (11445 Commercial Pky., Castroville, CA 95012; 800/538-7035). Equipped with the company’s Comfort Cell foam, the all-leather solo seat is styled to complement the Valkyrie’s lengthy lines. Options include choice of passenger pillions, removable backrests and a sissybar pad. Price ranges from $329 to $1035, depending on the order.
Tour Master
X-9 RUSSELL REPLICA
$635
With former AMA and World Superbike Champion Scott Russell making a name for himself in grand prix racing, the appearance of a new Shoei Russell replica helmet is no surprise. Replete with the Georgian’s “Screaming Chief” motif and sponsor Lucky Strike’s signature red-and-white paint, the carbon/fiberglass, injection-molded X-9 features multi-density foam cheek pads, variable ventilation and a handy chinstrap clip. The $635 helmet comes in XXS-XXL sizes and is available from motorcycle dealers. For more information, contact Shoei, 22605 E. La Palma Ave., Ste. 507, Yorba Linda, CA 92687; 714/692-8776.

Aprilia is the fastest-growing motorcycle company in Europe, reports Business Week. Sales for the Noale, Italy-based firm are expected to approach $500 million this year, a 400-percent increase since 1992. While the magazine article attributes a portion of Aprilia’s success to the unique design of such models as the Moto 6.5, it suggests that a more substantial reason may be the company’s manufacturing methodology.

AFTER EIGHT MONTHS OF hunting for an outside investor to prop up its precarious cash flow, Cagiva has finally found a partner. In a July 26th deal brokered by London-based merchant bank Morgan Grenfell (nowadays part of the giant German Deutsche Bank), an American investment house known as the Texas Pacific Group (TPG) agreed to pay $325 million for a 49-percent holding in a new company called Ducati Motorcycles SpA. This will entail splitting Ducati off from the other marques in the Cagiva motorcycle empire (Cagiva, Husqvarna, Moto Morini and MV Agusta), and completely restructuring its day-to-day operation, which will be independent of the remaining 28 companies in the Cagiva Group.

MZ’s management has declared the company bankrupt, but the doors to the factory remain open. The German firm reportedly has stopped building motorcycles, and is producing only spare parts as it awaits investment capital. Like Ducati, MZ is said to owe hundreds of thousands of dollars to its vendors—among them British engineer Al Melling, who designed an entire family of engines to replace MZ’s current Rotax and Yamaha powerplants.

But Kawasaki’s marketing personnel offer up research that indicates the new cruiser brigade isn’t entirely composed of stereotypical burly bikers.

Italy’s oldest motorcycle manufacturer, bursting with the vitality of new management after more than a decade of slumber, took top billing with the launch of its V10 Centauro.

AFTER 25 YEARS UNDER the penny-pinching control of financier Alessandro de Tomaso, Moto Guzzi at last is receiving the investment it’s been starving for. Finprogetti, the company’s new majority owner, is pushing ahead with new computers, machines and manpower.

HERE’S A CONCEPT FOR you: A motorcycle requires a motor. This is a lesson legendary MV Agusta race tuner Arturo Magni and his son Giovanni have learned in the most difficult and painful of ways. The Magnis, you see, have for the past 19 years busied themselves building and selling some rather nice motorcycles, using their own chassis.

WHEN DAMAGED OR WORN-OUT, NIKASIL-plated cylinders function best as avant garde paperweights, right? After all, the Nikasil process used to line the cylinder bores on most modern dirtbike engines eliminates replaceable liners. There is, however, one aftermarket company that provides a solution.

HEAT IS THE ENEMY. WHETHER YOU’RE talking about a hard-running motor tugging its way up a mountain grade in 100-degree conditions or a leatherclad rider stewing his way to heat stroke in summertime stop-and-go traffic, too much temperature is definitely a bad thing.

THE USGP MAY BE GONE, BUT FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN a row the world came to Laguna Seca, as the California race course hosted round six of the World Superbike Series on a freshly repaved and reconfigured track. In race one, Anthony Gobert pushed and slid his Muzzy Kawasaki into the lead past hard-riding John Kocinski and Troy Corser on factory Ducatis, only to lose the front end and fall shortly afterward.

The 22-year-old Texan and his 21-year-old teammate, All-Japan Superbike Champion Noriyuki Haga, won the grueling endurance race in hot, humid conditions by more than a minute.

What is the best way to clean the inside of a helmet? In particular, I’m interested in getting rid of the bad odors that develop in the interior after a season or two of use. Keith P. Nelson Saginaw, Michigan All major helmet manufacturers recommend the same basic cleaning procedure for non-removable liners.
