ACCORDING TO HISTORIANS, MUCH OF the original road system in the U.S. was based on Indian footpaths, which in turn followed ancient game trails. Makes sense to me. Who better than a deer or a pedestrian to find the most sensible path through the wilderness?

WHY RIDE MOTORCYCLES OR CARE about them? The ad agencies think they know. We do it, the ads tell us, to be cool, to ensure reproductive success, to display something beyond the financial reach of others. Yet conversations with riders and confirmed motorheads reveal latent poetry that seldom makes it into print.

As I was ripping down the road on a cold November day knowing that nothing on four wheels stands a chance in hell of keeping up with me on my Honda CBR900RR, I couldn't help but feel cheated by the Yamaha YZF 1000 vs. Dodge Viper shootout in the December issue.

YOU KNOW KTM's DUKE. Even if all you saw was a photo, you'd remember. It's the dressed-up dirtbike that thinks it's sporty, a supermotard racer for the street. Having sold every Duke it could build to date, the Austrian KTM company is exploring its options.

Honda's answer to KTM's Duke is the SLR650, built in conjunction with the Japanese company's Spanish importer, Montesa. Although its XR650L-derived, air-cooled, sohc 644cc single-cylinder engine is firmly rooted in dirtbiking's past, the SIR's street-oriented styling is bold and purposeful.

KENNY ROBERTS' three-cylinder 500cc grand prix bike isn't the only racing motorcycle being developed in England's Formula One heartland. March, the famed chassis constructor whose race cars won several F-1 GPs in the 1970s before the company turned its attention to Indycars, is currently working on a Superbike.

More and more motorsports illustrators are coming to realize what motorcycle enthusiasts have known all along: Bikes are more exciting than cars. The latest artist to try his hand at two-wheelers is Michael D. Savage. Best known for his Indycar and Formula One works, Savage is a closet sportbike junkie who owns a race-kitted Kawasaki ZX-7R and just put a down payment on a Ducati 916.

YOU THINK THE DEAD don't rise from their graves? Consider the strange case of BSA, and its Bantam and Gold Star models. Bantam first: Originally designed as a DKW, the Bantam became a BSA, as well as a Harley Hummer, through World War II reparations ("To the victors go the spoils," right?) and was built in England through 1971 as a 175cc econo-runabout.

In typical trend-setting manner, Cycle World went disco years before the Bee Gees with a strobe-lit photograph of HarleyDavidson's new 1000cc Sportster on the cover. The editors dubbed the bike "the most likely to be ripped off in 1972," and said that it "hauled ass" through the quartermile.

IT'S A HARLEY" YOU THINK as you thump along. What else has that copy right-applied-for exhaust note, those majestic flywheels that guarantee stately engine response, those big, lulling torque pulses? Why, a Big Dog, of course. In the last several years, the in creased availability of almost every part needed to build a Harley has coincided with shortages of certain models from the Milwaukee manufacturer.

WHEN LAST WE CHECKED IN ON our long-term BMW R850R (CW, October, 1996), we remarked that the unpretentious twincylinder roadster was racking up miles quicker than Amtrak. That pace slowed somewhat over the summer due to our busy new-bike testing schedule, but what hasn't changed is the Beemer's reliability-with regular oil changes, it continues to run like clockwork.

SUZUKI MARAUDER
$5999
In the grand tradition of carving multiple bikes from a single platform, Suzuki brought the Marauder here for $5999. It is a carbon-copy of the 400cc Desperado, on sale in Japan since last May. Impressive for a bike of its price the Marauder comes with custom-looking, castaluminum wheels-a 16 x 3.00 up front and a 15x3.50 in the rear. Suzuki's accessory department is working overtime to produce add-ons for the Marauder. Witness the draginspired version (left) with its fairing ($350), chin spoiler ($140) and one-piece seat ($215). The boulevard variation wears an array of billet-aluminum bits, saddlebags ($250), windshield ($240) and studded seat ($215). Lifted from the 800 Intruder, the Marauder motor goes 7500 miles between valve adjustments, has an easily accessible spin-on oil filter and a convenient oil-level check window.

WHILE THE OTHER JAPANESE GIANTS ARE BUSY courting fortysomething re-entry riders with mega-buck jumbo cruisers, Suzuki has taken a decidedly different route. With its corporate eye on America's youth, the Hamamatsu factory has unleashed its new-for-'97 Marauder 800.

AS THE HOT SUMMER SUN BREAKS THROUGH the clouds in Portland, Indiana, on this July morning, visitors to the Jay County Fairgrounds are greeted by an odd sight. Just within the gates-next to the Women's Building, across from the Floral Buildingare hundreds of scooters.

Wendy F. Black
DUBBING THE 1948 Salsbury Model 85 simply another motorscooter is akin to calling Marilyn Monroe just another pretty face. Those voluptuous lines, those eye-popping curves, that perky tailsection... But what about the scooter, you ask?

NICK IENATSCH
STANDING ANKLE DEEP IN BRINE, surveying the temporary lake that used to be the Bonneville Salt Flats, Mike Beckett and Tom Sarda knew there had to be a better way. The year was 1994 and the pair of land-speed-record enthusiasts had trailered their immaculately prepared cars from North Carolina to western Utah in search of untethered straight-line velocity at the big doggy of all speed meets held annually in Wendover, Utah.

YOU COULDN'T KNOCK THE SMILE OFF PHIL DETAMORE'S FACE WITH a shovel. "Last month I came out and ran her at 137 mph," he beamed, motioning to his pristine Suzuki Katana 750, "and this morning we went 145!" Detamore, a 63-year-old enthusiast from Westerville, Ohio, rode one of four bikes entered in the ECTA's Production 750 class.

In claiming the 1996 World Superbike title, 25-year-old Troy Corser became the youngest rider to do so and the only Aussie champion in the series' nine-year history. Moving steadily from the 1993 Australian Superbike title, then to the 1994 AMA Superbike championship to the WSB crown, Corser now has his sights set on the 500cc grand prix arena, where he is considering a Yamaha factory ride.

In the November, `96, Service, you responded to a letter that asked how best to combat the unpleasant odors that accumulate in a helmet after a season or two of riding. Your answer was (to keep it short) soap and water. There may be a better way: baby wipes.
