THERE WAS AN ITEM ON THE NEWS LAST night about brain-tissue shrinkage in teens who sniff glue, nail polish and various inhalants to get high. After hearing a few of these supposedly brain-damaged kids interviewed, I couldn’t help wondering how smart they’d been before acquiring the inhalant habit.

VEHICLES ARE MADE OF SPRINGS. EVEN A tire is a spring, because if you press it down and release it, it will bounce back up. Tires can also flex and oscillate sideways. Suspensions have springs and, less obviously, the chassis they attach to is also springy.

Nice article, April’s “The Great 916 Challenge,” and the Ducati winning was pretty much what I expected. I was disappointed, however, that an “If it were my money” impression was not included. I believe most readers/riders want to know which is best to own for everyday application and cost (i.e. maintenance).

THUNDERBIRD! VIDEO
$30
Billed as the definitive video history of the Triumph Thunderbird, this 38-minute tape was produced by restoration expert Bill Dunlap and covers the history of the model from 1949 right up to the current, Hinckley-built Triples. The video takes a decidedly American perspective, including rare footage from the Catalina GP and Bonneville Salt Flats, plus an interview with Pete Colman, a principal with Johnson Motors, Triumph’s West Coast distributors. The first in a proposed video series on landmark machines, Thunderbird! retails for $30.
WDP Enterprises
WINNING HAND GLOVES
$36
Meet motocrossing’s royal flush: Troy Lee Designs’ Winning Hand off-road gloves ($36) feature neoprene-and-lycra construction, padded Clarino palms, spandex between the tapered fingers, terry-cloth thumbs and protective vinyl trim. Originally developed for downhill mountain-bike racing, they’re available in S-XL sizes in either Forest Green/Cream or red/blue color combinations.
WDP Enterprises
STEEL-BRAIDED BRAKE LINES
$85
Galfer steel-braided brake lines are designed to eliminate the expansion often associated with stock rubber hoses. Offered with black or clear PVC coating, the teflon-lined cables fit most late-model cruisers and sportbikes. Pricing starts at $85, which includes hardware and mounting instructions.
WDP Enterprises
SHIFT JACKET
$198
The ’70s are back with a vengeance, and nowhere is this more apparent than in motocross. Shift Clothing is making the most of this retro-trend with après-race apparel such as its ultra-hip, blue-and-black vinyl jacket worn here by motocross champ Jeff Emig. As stylish with MX gear as it is with a polyester turtleneck and bellbottoms, the comfortably casual $198 jacket (sizes S-XL) has a quilted lining, reflective trim and molded Shift logos. No fashion victims here...

SIGNET KENNY ROBERTS JR. REPLICA
$448
Being the child of someone famous can be a burden or a boon. For grand prix roadracer Kenny Roberts Jr., one birthright bonus is Arai's Signet KRJR. A faithful replica of his distinctive black-red-and-white helmet, it features the company’s patented tool-less shield-changing system, complex-laminate shell and optically correct faceshield. Yours, in sizes XS-XXXL, for $448.
WDP Enterprises
BRAKE PADS
$30
Dunlopad claims unparalleled stopping power from its sintered-metal brake pads. But you needn’t be a professional roadracer to appreciate fade-free braking performance. To wit: The company now offers its S55 compound, formerly only available in sportbike and off-road applications, for Honda GL1500 Gold Wings. All applications, including the CBR1100XX Super Blackbird pads shown here, feature zirconium-ceramic backing plates, which reduce heat transfer to brake fluid, eliminating fade. Per-caliper pricing begins at $30.
WDP Enterprises
DAYTONA WHEEL
$768-$903
When man invented the wheel, he probably had no idea that his contraption would eventually evolve into a Boyds five-spoke Daytona. CNC-machined from 6061 billet-aluminum, the wheels accommodate single or dual brake discs, and chain or belt final drive. Available with a chromed or polished finish in a range of diameters and widths, they fit most late-model Harley-Davidsons. Cost varies from $768-$903 per wheel, depending on size.

HAVING ALREADY PROduced recreational vehicles for dirt, snow and water, Polaris will take to the open road next year with its first motorcycle. In confirming what had been a poorly kept industry secret, the world’s largest snowmobile manufacturer announced it will enter the streetbike market in 1998 with a made-in-the-USA cruiser to be sold under the brand name Victory.

Talk about a demo ride: BMW of North America’s new “Best Test in the West” program gives motorcyclists a unique opportunity to test ride the BMW of their choice on one of seven three- or four-day tours through the Western U.S. Even better, should an attendee decide to purchase a new BMW within 90 days of his test ride, he will receive a coupon equal to the full value of the tour toward BMW accessories.

WHAT WILL APRILIA'S forthcoming RS1000 Superbike look like? We can’t say for sure, but this factory engineering drawing certainly gives a good indication. The new bike’s fuel-injected, dohc, 60degree V-Twin engine, built by Rotax in Austria, is currently undergoing further development by Cosworth in England, where it is reportedly producing 160 horsepower at the crankshaft.

The editors got into the swing of summer with this issue, using a California sunset as the backdrop for a cover shot of a Triumph T120RV Bonneville. Although the venerable “Bonnie” had been subjected to a major redesign the year prior, it went under the knife again for 1972, receiving a new five-speed gearbox.

SOMETIMES IT SEEMS THAT race-replicas have the career span of a 14-year-old Olympic gymnast. Gold may come once, but by the next time the five-ring circus unfolds its tents, the winning gymnast is less newsworthy than last week’s lottery number, replaced by yet another pre-adolescent tumbler.

LOUD MUSIC, LOUD PAINT AND loud exhausts are forever wed, lauded in recordings by rock-and-roll bands from The Beach Boys to Bush. Hot-rods inspire songs, and are inspired by songs. But while the lowered roadsters in the ZZ Top videos epitomize cool, even the Bearded Ones themselves prefer cruising on two wheels to four.

CHOPPERS ARE THE FREAK FLAGS OF BIKERDOM—magna-cum-loudness convolutions of style that have come to symbolize the dark side of motorcycle culture. In our mind's eye, we see not one chopper but a string of them, traveling down some coastal highway in a blaze of gory.

ENTER THIS IN THE BEEN THERE, Done That File: You’re up early for a day of trail riding. The morning is cool and you dress appropriately. But by noon, the mercury has risen, and you realize you’ve donned too much gear. Is your only option to suffer in the sweltering sun?

NEXT TO BROKEN-IN BLUE JEANS AND boots that don’t hurt your feet, comfortable gloves are probably closer to a rider’s heart than most accessories we buy. They fall into the “old friends” category of riding gear. They also lead a hard life: Sweat, rain, sunlight, snow and road rash all take their toll, so they have to be replaced from time to time.

WHEN MY KIDS WERE YOUNG AND CAME HOME from school armed with the words you and I had to learn in the Navy, I countered their intentions, which were to entertain Mom at dinner, with logic: Those words are special words, I said. They are very powerful.

TRUTH BE TOLD, THE ARROW AND SCOUT LIGHTWEIGHTS, introduced in 1948, aren't really what killed Indian. Lay the blame for that squarely at the feet of poor strategic planning, undercapitalization, godawful buildquality and plain ol’ bad luck.

JIMMY LEWIS
WHAT MAKES A GOOD ENDURO BIKE? GOOD QUESTION, BECAUSE AS FAR as we can see, the only common denominators among enduro bikes seem to be two wheels and some kind of internal-combustion powerplant. They can have nickel-plated perimeter frames or simple roundtube affairs.

SCOTT RUSSELL'S TALENT IS FORmidable—and portable. After three Daytona wins on Kawasakis and a close second last year on a Suzuki, he came back on a Yamaha to dominate this year’s 200 for a record four wins. Yamaha itself was equally impressive, affirming its place in motorcycle sport.

I have a perplexing problem with my ’94 Honda CBR600F2. When I ride the freeway on my way to work every morning, the engine dies while I’m climbing a long uphill grade on the route. And it does the same thing on the way home when I ride up the same hill in the other direction.
