HAVING YOUR NAME SITUATED AT THE TOP of the Cycle World masthead has certain privileges, but multiple votes in our annual Ten Best Bikes balloting ain’t one of them. Sadly, it’s therefore possible that my innate good taste and unerring sense of style in all things two-wheeled can be cancelled out by the wayward vote of one capricious staff member or another.

The article about Easy Rider's Billy Bike and Captain America (CW, June) was spectacular! I’ve always felt the same way about the importance of those two motorcycles. Moreover, I believe that the Billy Bike has had more of an impact on today’s cruisers than any other so-called chopper.

ACERBIS
DUAL HALOGEN HEADLIGHT
$79
With apologies to the late Jim Morrison, Acerbis wants to light your fire with its Dual Halogen Headlight. Intended for most current dirtbikes, the rally-style setup utilizes two 12-volt, 35-watt halogen bulbs mounted in a plastic shell. The smaller “pencil” beam focuses on a narrow, 10-degree arc, while the “flood” illuminates a broader, 38-degree span. The DHH comes in various colors, and costs $79.
ACERBIS
CARBON-KEVLAR PIPE PROTECTOR
$78
While carbon-fiber is a regular sight on sportbikes, it’s only recently gained popularity among off-road riders. Taking advantage of this trend, E-Line has introduced its Carbon-Kevlar Pipe Protector. A combination of hand-laid kevlar and carbon-fiber, the molded cover eliminates power-robbing exhaust pipe dents and dings. It’s available for most late-model two-stroke dirtbikes. Suggested retail is $78.
ACERBIS
CORDURA AVENGER
$375
The Cordura Avenger-a new ’90s superhero? Not quite. After all, nobody wears a mask anymore. This Avenger is a mid-weight, ventilated riding jacket from Vanson Leathers. Fashioned from cordura and cowhide, it has a mesh liner, two inner pockets, a waist zipper for attaching leather pants and reflective 3M piping across the front and back. Armor is optional. No, the $375 Avenger isn’t faster than a speeding bullet, but it is available in men’s and women’s sizes in red, black or blue.
ACERBIS
DESIGNER SERIES HELMETS
$156
Wintune’s ventilated Designer Series halfhelmets are manufactured using the company’s patented color-embedding process, which sandwiches silk-screened, scratchproof graphics between a polymer layer and the fiberglass shell. Removable snap-on visor and padded leather neck-warmer are included. The $156 helmet is available in 48 color combinations, in sizes XXS-XXL.
ACERBIS
MECHANIX GLOVES
$30
While basic black is no fashion faux pas, it can be a bit boring. So it’s no wonder that AXO’s Mechanix Gloves, previously available in black only, now also come in blue, purple, red and yellow. But new colors aren’t all these gloves have going for them: Note the elasticized wristbands with velcro closures, anatomical thumb design, heat-resistant palms and fingers, and padded mesh tops. At $30 per pair in sizes XS-XXL, these gloves will get the job done in style.
ACERBIS
ROYAL STAR CARBURETOR COVER
$108
Nothing spiffs up a cruiser like chrome, and coating your Yamaha Royal Star with the shiny stuff is now a cinch, thanks to Aeromach. Like the carb covers ($108), the company's other bolt-on accessories are machined from 6061-To aluminum, and then chromed. The lineup includes covers for the waterpump, brake calipers, master cylinder, horn and more.
ACERBIS
LAPPACK
$98
Respect’s cordura-nylon LapPack converts from backpack to briefcase in seconds. Billed as a “portable workstation,” it has two large storage compartments: One holds a laptop computer, cellular telephone, pager and AC cord; the other accommodates manila folders, 3.5-inch floppy disks, pens and assorted office supplies. The water-resistant pack costs $98 and is available in red/silver, matte black/silver, black dimple vinyl and black patent vinyl.
ACERBIS
RALLY BOOTS
$135
Chippewa has been building biker boots for more than half a century. The company’s latest offering, the 12-inch-high Rally Boot, boasts full-grain leather construction, a reinforced kickpad, velcro closures and cushioned insole. Available in three widths in sizes 6-13, the boot carries a suggested retail of $135.
ACERBIS
JUNIOR BIKE
$139
Stop the presses! BMW is offering cutting-edge tricycle technology with its “twin-leg, 10-toes, muscle-driven motorcycle.” Created in the image of BMW’s dual-purpose R1100GS, the 10-pound Junior Bike has an 11.8-inch seat height, nifty graphics and fits most late-model toddlers. It’s made mostly of plastic, though the wheels incorporate a hard rubber running ring for traction. At $139, it’s the least expensive BMW yet.

WHAT’S BIG IN JAPAN, you ask? If you read last month’s Roundup, you know that rally-style dualpurpose bikes are all the rage. Well, that was then and this is now; the latest craze is “retro” streetbikes that harken back to the glory days of the ’70s, the ’60s and earlier.

The 1970s are often referred to as The Golden Age of Motorcycling. The decade deserves this moniker, too, considering the huge number of motorcycles that were imported into the U.S. from Japan. As such, it’s no surprise that this month’s cover featured a Honda-the then-new CB350 Four, to be specific.

SEVENTY-FIVE-HUNDRED dollars might not seem like enough money to purchase a Ducati, but it is. That sum won’t buy you a 916, or even an M900 Monster, but it will get you a new M750. A Mini-Monster, if you will. A bike that’s so close to its bigger brother, you could take the emblems off the sidepanels and few would ever notice the difference.

SOMETIMES A SINGLE CHARACTERISTIC DEFINES A MOTORCYCLE, AND A SINGLE change changes everything. When BMW introduced its first K100 laydown-Four back in 1983, it buzzed annoyingly. At one rpm or another, you felt that electric vibration in the handgrips, the tank, the seat, the pegs—everywhere you touched the bike.

Dismissing Ducati’s 748 as a downsized 916 does it a great disservice. We know; we did just that before we rode it. Ride the 748 once, however, and you’ll be amazed at just how different it feels. There’s been a lot of talk about how easy the 916 is to ride, but you know what?

IT'S PROBABLY THE LEAST LIKELY RACING ENGINE EVER built. Imagine Briggs & Stratton at Daytona or San Jose and you wouldn't be far off. But Harley-Davidson's KR750 not only defined grass-roots racing in the U.S. for nearly two decades, it changed the face of the sport in the process.

IF BEAUTY IS ONLY SKIN DEEP, CAN the same be said for ugly? After spending a year with our less-than-alluring long-term BMW R850R, we’d have to answer in the affirmative. Let’s be honest: The new-generation Boxers look a lot better fully clothed (R1100RS/RT) than they do “naked” (R850/1100R).

THE NEXT TIME YOU FALL OFF YOUR dirtbike and hear a loud crunch!, and you’re certain the noise wasn’t your collarbone breaking, take a good look at your motorcycle’s radiators. Granted, their location-tucked-in behind protective plastic shrouds adjacent to the steering head-renders them fairly impervious to damage, but they are not invincible.

WE'VE HEARD IT ALL before; so have you: "There's no way a 125 can compete with a 500..." "A 250 is always the best..." "Five-hundreds are pigs, they'll kill ya..." "Thumpers are underrated, they never get a fair chance..." "In supercross, Kevin Windham on his YZ125 turns faster lap times than most 250 guys..."

DIRT RIDING IS ONE OF THOSE ACTIVITIES where a spiffy pair of Michael Jordan high-tops simply won’t suffice. You’ve gotta have the right tools, er, boots, for the job. Which is why Fox created the Forma, an Italian-made boot hailed by its designers as “revolutionary.” Construction is certainly noteworthy.

Through the first and second rounds of the 1997 World Superbike Championship, Honda-mounted John Kocinski was the series leader. This was a novelty because, in recent seasons, Ducati has dominated the series. At the third round, in England, matters reverted nearly to norm, with Ducati pilot Carl Fogarty winning one leg, and Honda’s Aaron Slight the other.

Paul Dean
Is there any way I can retune the engine on my 1993 Kawasaki KX250 motocrosser to give it more midrange power? It sometimes gets me into trouble when I’m hillclimbing. It either delivers way more power than needed or it bogs out and leaves me screwed in the middle of a hill.
