AROUND HERE, IT'S CALLED "PULLING A Peter Egan." Seems every six months or so our Editor-at-Large, who also writes for Road & Track magazine, reshuffles his garage to incorporate yet another interesting blue-chip car or motorcycle. This usually involves the selling off of a vehicle or two, and perhaps the assistance of the local loan officer.

WHEN INTERNAL COMBUSTION (IC) ENgines were first built, their piston-sealing rings were borrowed from an obvious place—the steam engine. This so-called "Ramsbottom ring" persists to this day, consisting of a springy metal ring with a gap in it.

I am not the letter-writing type, but this is the last straw. I know it is not your fault that the factories never actually build these things, but to run pictures and specs of concept bikes that will never hit the street is wrong. It's teasing.

WE'VE WAITED AND we've hoped. Yamaha's World Superbike entry has long been the oldest design in the series, and the coming of the wonderful YZF-Rl and YZF-R6 hinted that a 750cc version couldn't be far behind. At last, Yamaha's new four-stroke racer is here.

What does the future of cruising hold? Fun o’ plenty, if this sensational Honda Valkyrie concept bike is any indication. Fabricated by Honda Research of America (HRA), the fuel-injected Six is loaded with radical modifications, from its hardtail-look, single-shock rear suspension with rocker linkage and extended swingarm to its modified frame members, six-piston Nissin brake calipers and polished Shadow Aero-esque headlight.

YAMAHA HAS RESURRECTED its popular 1970s roadster, the XS650. Reminiscent of the original, the decidedly retro machine is powered by an air-cooled, dual-carb vertical-Twin. But it uses pushrods to actuate an octet of overhead valves, a la the new Road Star cruiser.

A Husqvarna 250 CR in mid-flight was depicted on this month's cover. Inside, the corresponding road test praised the bike for being as close to a factory-prepped racebike as possible. "Numerous magnesium components, reed valving and forward-mounted rear shocks make this one machine experts can earn a living on," read the subtitle.

BURDENED BY CONTRAdictions and last-minute deals that never seem to come to fruition, the Italian motorcycle industry is tip-toeing toward the third millennium. As a whole, the industry remains fractioned to the point that not even the most well-known makes exceed sales of 30,000 units per year.

FIFTEEN-FIVE. THE REDLINE SITS THERE ON THE WHITE-faced tachometer, beckoning. Run the engine up there just once and experience the carnal sensation, we dare you. It's a siren's scream, a primal wail, a blood-curdling cry for help. More than that, the Yamaha YZF-R6’s dizzying redline is a wakeup call to the middleweight sportbike class, a silkscreened proclamation that shouts out, “Oh yeah, top this!" After nearly a decade of taking it on the chin, the tuning-fork company is back with a vengeance, looking to return to the dominant position held by the FZR600 circa 1989-90.

NORTONS IS NORTONS, RIGHT? NOT WHEN THE BIKE in question starts out with a nickel-plated Seeley Mk. 4 frame, a choice bit of 1970s British hardware as rare as it is alluring. English roadracer Colin Seeley was an early pied piper for perimeter-style frames, now a sportbike staple.

ALL THOSE WHO THINK ARLEN Ness invented custom Harley-Davidsons, gather 'round and prepare to be edumacated. Nobody really knows when the first American customs rose from the primordial slime. Good guess is that back in the Teens some punter, having removed the crash-crunched front fender from his Silent Gray Fellow, stood back and exclaimed, 'Jeepers, don't that look swank," then went after the rear fender with a hacksaw for good measure.

But when he spied this 1974 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport languishing in a Minnesota dealership in 1996, he had to have it.

THERE IS NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, SUBTLE about Mike Maldonado's chopper. But then again, the hand-crafted custom was never intended to be discreet. 'I just wanted a real radical, outlaw-style bike," says the 36-year-old fabricator, "an in-your-face bike!" That, it is.

JOURNALISTS ARE NOTORIOUS FOR missing deadlines, but this story is 16 years past due. Way back in 1983, a customer coerced Ron Wood into building a street-legal version of one of his Rotax-powered dirt-trackers. Not long after, however, that same customer got Wood going on another project, the "Blank Check" Harley-Davidson XR-750 featured in the December, 1990, issue of Cycle magazine.

WHEN WAS THE FIRST TIME YOU SAW KENNY Roberts ride a racebike?

Or was it Laguna Seca, watching "The King" wheelie out of old Turn 2 while looking over his shoulder at Randy Mamola?

INTOLERABLE CONTRADICTIONS ARE a powerful driving force of design change. When conventional thinking fails to unravel them, people are forced to consider something new. When in 1980 Kenny Roberts won his last world 500cc title on this 125-bhp OW-48R Yamaha, it was a tight bundle of contradictions.

iN THE LATE 1950s, Jack McCormack was on a Los Angeles free way en route to a business call. His suit ruffled a bit in the 60-mph breeze. McCormack, the regional manager for a button-machine company, made his calls on a 650 Triumph TR6. It marked McCormack as a young man with unconventional ideas.

THERE ARE PECULIAR THINGS OUT THERE IN THE WOODS. UNEXPLAINED PHENOMena, rarely seen, yet ballyhooed to the point that they have become folklore. Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, El Chupacabra and manageable Open-class dirt-bikes that ride like 250s all come to mind.

There's a lot to be said for light weight and agility. Especially in a long, gnarly, off-road race. I don't care who you are (Scott Summers excluded), but at the two-hour mark of a three-hour hare scrambles, you don't need knob-shredding power.

TAKE ONE LOOK AT THE SVELTE NEW Voxan Cafe Racer and it's obvious that craftsmanship and originality abound. From every angle, seduction is apparent. In fact, enthusiasts are so smitten that in France, where Voxan is based, more than 100 of the V-Twins already are spoken for, and production hasn't even begun!

THE SUMMER IN SOUTHERN CALIFORnia is not a season to be trifled with. After all, SoCal is essentially a desert. Which means that it can get downright sweltering. With this in mind, we set out to find a riding jacket that would be protective while remaining cool in the heat.

MOST RIDERS, HAVING BEEN WEANED on modern, trustworthy iron, feel no need to be weighed down by anything other than the feeble, pot-metal tools already supplied with their bikes. Some of us know better, which is why the first thing that goes into our tankbags is a well-stocked tool roll, ready for most emergencies.

Paul Dean
I have a 1985 BMW K100. It is fuel-injected, so it has a computer-controlled engine-management system. Should I have any concern that a Y2K bug might be present in the engine-management computer? Dennis Bogusky Temperance, Michigan Fear not, Dennis; your BMW won't grind to a halt at the stroke of midnight this coming December 31.

Like a lot of turkeys, Waldo just wanted to ride and be free to do his own thing in his own time without being hassled by The Man...but he had a brain the size of a chickpea, short legs and no opposable thumb. We need your photos for Slipstream. We're looking for photos that make us smile because they say something about motorcycling.
