THERE REALLY IS NO SUCH THING AS A BAD motorcycle these days-the market (that’s you and me) just won’t stand for it. Of course, each year, there are some headand-shoulders outstanding machines. Those are the models we celebrate in our Ten Best Bikes balloting, this year in its 25th iteration.

Kevin Cameron
NOT LONG AGO, I WAS RASSLING UP some burgers and happened to look at the spatula I was using. Where the thin stainless blade was riveted to the handle, a tiny line was visible. I ran a fingernail across it and it caught. Sure enough, a crack. Cracks form where stress is concentrated for any reason.

AGV Helmets
$525
There’s been some tweaking going on over at AGV. It seems the Italian helmet-maker has poked and prodded its top-of-the-line X-Vent. The result is new Valentino Rossi Mugello graphics, as well as revamped interior padding for a more comfortable fit and a new ventilation system. An antiscratch/anti-fog shield and a removable liner remain standard on the $525 lid. Then there’s the brand-new Bolt model, aimed at the touring crowd. Priced at $350, it incorporates a composite-fiber shell and the X-Vent’s ventilation and shield. It’s available in solid colors only. AGV 7311A Grove Rd., Frederick, MD 21704; 800/950-9006; www.agv.com
AGV
Roadgear Hibernator
$69
The nerve of some people! Implying that just because your pristine, concours-quality motorcycle is stored inside negates the need for further protective covering. Fortunately, Roadgear understands you and your bike’s needs. Hence, the Hibernator, a soft, breathable fleece that blankets your motorcycle. Billed as “ultimate indoor protection,” it is said to prevent condensation buildup and stave off all that pesky dust. It’s available in Regular ($59) and Jumbo ($69) sizes. Roadgear, 206 W. Elgin Dr., Pueblo West, CO 81007; 800/854-4327; www.roadgear.com
AGV
Tae Flex SRS motocross boots
$20
While a dirt ’n’ asphalt combo makes for good action in supermotard racing, it’s murder on riders’ boots. Which brings us to Sidi’s Supermotard Kit. Designed to fit the Italian company’s Tae Flex SRS motocross boots, the $20 ensemble protects the rubber soles via six nylon-composite bolt-ons. The sole is saved, ergo, boot life is extended. Neat. Motonation, 14168 Poway Rd., #205, Poway, CA 92064; 877/789-4940; www.motonation.com
AGV
Elf Synthese 07 Shoes
$115
Not all motorcycling occasions require Serious Motorcycle Boots. Who needs toe-sliders for running errands? When something more casual, yet still protective, is called for, try Elf Synthese 07 shoes from Japan’s Hiroshima Kasei. Their long list of features includes zip-up, ventilated shoelace guards, arch cushioning, shock-absorbing soles and a whole passel of reflectors. They’re available in several color combos and U.S. sizes. Depending on the state of the yen, suggested retail is approximately $115. Hiroshima Kasei, 2-2-11 Matsuhama-Cho, Fukuyama-City, Hiroshima-Pref, 720-8642, Japan; 011-81-849-227206; www.sky-net.or.jp/tsuhame/elfworld/index.html
AGV
Metzeler Custom Tire
$268
Custom cruiser builders, prepare to salivate shamelessly! Tire giant Metzeler has created the ultimate coup de grace with its newest ME 880 radial. The fattest production rear rubber available, the (deep breath here) 240/40 R 18 M/C 79V TL measures 243mm wide and fits an 8to 9-inch-wide, 18-inch rim. Stockers need not apply. The German company also claims a matching front is in the offing, as are other custom sizes. Suggested retail for the current fatty is $268v. Metzeler, 300 N. Potts town Pk., #280, Exton, PA 19341; 610/524-2190; www.metzeler.com
AGV
Wiha Insulated Tools
$277
Nothing like new tools to bring out your inner Tim Allen... With that in mind, Wiha Quality Tools has a 10-piece Plier and Screwdriver Set that’s equipped with ergonomically shaped, insulated handles rated up to 1000 volts. For $277, you get combination pliers, side cutters, needle-nose pliers, wire cutters and a wire stripper, as well as different sized Phillips and slotted screwdrivers. Drop-forged construction, chrome and nickel plating, and a glossy polishing job are the norm. Carrying case is included. Wiha Tools, 1348 Dundas Cir, Monticello, MN 55362; 800/494-6104; www.wihatools.com
AGV
Hi Point Wheels
$2000
Don’t hate us when we say that Japan’s Hi Point Wheels have a revolutionary design. Because, actually, they do. Forged, not cast, and CNC-machined from aluminum, the heat-treated, six-spoke hoops are said to be both stronger and lighter-weight than stock. Plus, they look really cool! Front and rear units are available, the latter with a rubber cush drive. They fit a slew of applications, ranging from late-model sportbikes to Harley-Davidsons. Cost is approximately $2000 per set. PPS, 4065 E. La Palma, #G, Anaheim, CA 92807; 714/630-4777; www.ppsracing.com

THE CURRENT CROP OF 600cc sportbikes are the most versatile, capable motorcycles of our time. Interesting smaller-displacement streetbikes don’t really exist, and bigger machines gain weight and lose handiness. The rockets-Honda’s CBR1100XX, Kawasaki’s ZX-12R and Suzuki's Hayabusa-are more like utility-power stations on hollowspoke wheels, appealing to those who wish to simulate the topend kick of oxy-hydrogen thirdstage engines.

Greasing the cover with a stylin', Seventies-era berm shot was Kawasa ki’s new KX250, sporting the latest off-road innovation: gas/oil shocks. Because 8 inches of “long-travel” suspension had become commonplace, Kawasaki needed something to up the offroad ante.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, anyone? Motorcyclists thave traditionally answered with a resounding “No,” underscoring the importance of shifting to the two-wheeled experience. Case in point? Back in 1976, Honda’s CB750A had a true, three-element torque converter, which turned out to be the answer to the question no one asked.

DID ANYONE ELSE sense the irony in the opening round of this year's World Superbike Championship at Kyalami, South Africa? Having spent a dozen years fielding 750cc V-Fours in an increasingly unfair fight against the dominant Ducati 851-996cc V-Twins, Honda finally debuted a liter-Twin of its own and won the first time out.

A RGUMENTS WILL BE MADE FOR OTHER TYPES OF SPORTbikes, but nothing expresses pure performance in such raw terms as the lightweight, Open-class four-cylinder. Forget your Twins, your 600s, your Land Speed Bikes, these three liter-class missiles have all the right maxi -mums, all the right minimums, with the essential elements of performance pleasantly pumped up, then stripped bare.

THE MOTOCROSS MARKET HAS BEEN about as consistent as gasoline prices lately. At least in the MX world, though, things are on the up and up for the better. Never have there been so many bonafide berm-busters to choose from. First, we’ll admit to being full-on four-stroke fans-pounding thumps, seamless torque and tons of ridable power win us over every time.

KEEPING ABREAST OF PREVAILING TRENDS IN THE fast-paced information age can be downright dizzying. Especially when said trends are headed in every conceivable direction. Just look at pop culture. The public is bonkers over "The XFiles" and the "X Games," NASDAQ stocks an NASCAR stock cars, the Backstreet Boys and the Beastie Boys.

PHIL VINCENT DROPPED OUT OF UNIVERSITY in 1928 to take over floundering HRD, and then proceeded to endow that make with his novel triangulated rear suspension. Just after WWII, Australian engineer Phil Irving drew up the Series B Vincent—a radical concept that all but eliminated the chassis, continued Vincent’s Monoshock-like swingarm and combined one liter of V-Twin displacement with the bare minimum of weight.

IF HE KNEW THEN WHAT HE KNOWS NOW... HE still would have done it. Seven years and thousands of dollars ago, Alan Chalk began a journey that veered into an obsession. Innocently shopping for a restoration project, Chalk saw an old single-cylinder Ducati that had been hacked and modified into a dirtbike.

Valentino Rossi has frolicked his way to motorcycle racing’s highest level. Will Honda’s NSR500 beat the fun out of the class clown of the GP circus?

MICHAEL SCOTT
THE TRADEMARK CHESHIRE CAT GRIN DIDN'T FADE EVEN though the first race of Valentino Rossi's debut 500cc Grand Prix season ended in a crash after just 12 laps. Nor when the same thing hannened even earlier in the second race. Rather surprisingly, it was the third GP of the year-when Rossi managed his first finish in the 500 class-that ended with an uncharacteristically glum look.

The FIM-ruling body of international motorcycle racing-will for 2002 invite 990cc four-strokes of three cylinders or more to compete in its top Grand Prix roadracing class, joining existing 500cc two-strokes. Including four-strokes provides a “green option” for the FIM and the manufacturers.

Early last spring, I took delivery of my 1999 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa. By August, I had 3500 miles on the bike and started having problems with stalling, rough idling, dying at speed and coughing. My dealer told me there was some kind of recall on the bike involving fuel filters that were being deteriorated by certain gasolines.
