JUST HOW GOOD ARE THE NEW-GENERation GSX-R Suzukis? You can sample our take on the Family Gixxer starting on page 42, but the global jury has delivered its verdict. Year 2000’s International Bike of the Year, as voted by the editors of 14 moto-mags worldwide, is the GSX-R750.

ONE FINE SUMMER AFTERNOON A COUple of years ago, I was batting around the hills of southwestern Wisconsin on my old Harley FLHS when I suddenly realized the hour was growing late. Turning up the wick a bit to get home in time for dinner, I came around a corner on a small country road to find myself at the back end of a long parade of very slow-moving cars and pickup trucks.

MOTORCYCLE ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS have come a long way since I used to drain the water out of my Lucas “wading magneto” before attempting to start my AJS 500 Single. Back then, headlights and taillights used simple bulbs like something from a flashlight, with vibration-sensitive tungsten filaments supported on whippy wire stalks.

As a long-time subscriber to your (generally) excellent magazine, I must say that this time you win the “booby prize” for your completely awful road test of the new Honda Gold Wing (“Grand Slam,” February). Eleven guys blathering on paragraph after paragraph about their high-tech underwear, speeding tickets, border patrol officers, ad nauseam.

Custom Chrome
RevTech Crate Engine
$5295 to $5595
So you're building up the hottest-looking custom known to man, but you lack horsepower. Literally. One solution is Custom Chrome's RevTech engine. The 88or 100-cubic-inch V-Twin comes assembled and ready to install. Standard equipment includes a 42mm Mikuni carb, free-flowing air filter and RevTech's Thunder Heart solid-state ignition. Get yours with either plain or black finish on the cylinder fins. Price ranges from $5295 to $5595.
Custom Chrome
Z-II Helmet
$469 to $641
Shoei's latest entry into the helmet wars is the Z-II. The new lid sports a revamped shell made with high-strength fibers, as well as intake and exhaust vents that are easily operated by gloved hands. Coup de grace is the spoiler-style rear lip that's said to reduce drag and lift. The design uses Shoei's proven quick-release shield-changing system and removable liner. Available in solid colors and with graphics, the helmet costs from $469 to $641.
Custom Chrome
Easy Rizer Motorcycle Lift
$540
No home mechanic's garage is complete without a motorcycle lift of some sort. Which begs the question, which lift to get? One solution is the Easy Rizer, imported from England's Quasar Products. Said to safely hold up to 2 tons, the compact, steel lift reportedly supports any type of two-wheeler via interchangeable mounting brackets. And it's height-adjustable, which means no more lying on the ground reaching for hard-to-get-to parts. Pricing starts at $540.
Custom Chrome
[no value]
$210 to $240
One ongoing complaint from sportbike owners is that there’s no convenient way to carry stuff on long-distance trips. Fortunately, ZenRail inventor Don Anglin has figured out a way. ZenRails are stainless-steel tubes measuring 1.5 inches in diameter that fit discreetly under most sportbikes’ tail-sections. Perfect as is for bungee-cord mounts, or you can install the optional cowling that accommodates a large duffel or saddlebags. All without marring the bike’s finish. Price ranges from $210 to $240.
Custom Chrome
Name Plates
$40 to $50
Off-roaders with a hankering to personalize their gear can do so with the help of ZLT Designs. The graphics company designs cool-looking name-and-number plates that affix to chest protectors. Twoor three-color designs are available, and the clear-plastic plates secure to most chest protectors with minor drilling. Cost ranges from $40 to $50 per plate.
Custom Chrome
Brake Saver Kit
$11
Yeah, yeah, yeah, we know. Fastway's Brake Saver Kit isn't the newest idea on the planet. But it's still a good idea. Designed to prevent rocks and sticks and such from ripping your dirt-bike's brake pedal off, it's basically a cable that attaches to the pedal itself on one end, and to a motor mount on the other. Available with different-length cables, it costs just $11. Simple and cheap, a good combination.
Custom Chrome
Race Poster
$350
Your parlor lacking pizzazz? Your den in need of décor? Then consult the folks at J&P Cycles. The Harley-aftermarket catalog retailers are offering a heavy-canvas reproduction of this promotional poster from the 1926 National Motorcycle Championship in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Two sizes of the limited-edition, numbered prints are available: A 40 x 54-inch version costs $350, while a smaller 24 x 36-inch is $200. Only 300 of each were produced.

SPY-SHOOTERS HAVE caught Harley-Davidson's liquid-cooled V-Twin in near final-production form. This time the disguise is gone; in these long-lens photographs, you can start to see the final shape of Harley's new power-cruiser. It's the most complete break from Big Twin tradition yet, with overhead cams, eight valves, unit construction and design input from German sports-car giant Porsche.

Prior to his death while leading the Italian Grand Prix at Imola, Senna and his sister Viviane had formed the Ayrton Senna Foundation to benefit underprivileged children in their native Brazil.

The response is a beautifully conceived and developed evolution of the original Monster concept, with elegant and spirited styling wrapped around a re-engineered chassis and engine.

"I SING OF ARMS, AND A MAN." THOSE 2000-year-old words of the poet Virgil popped into my head as I sat down to think about the long tradition of Suzuki sportbikes—the GSX-Rs. Virgil wrote of a wandering warrior, and that's a fair description of GSX-R riders.

December, 1985: Team CW outfits two first-year GSX-R750s and sets 12 FIM world speed records at the Uniroyal Tire Company's Laredo Proving Grounds in Laredo, Texas. "It'd be great fun, we thought," then-Editor Paul Dean's story began. "We'd get a couple of fast bikes, assemble a team of riders from the Cycle World staff, find a big, banked track somewhere, and go set a new 24-hour world speed record.

THEY WERE THE ESSENTIAL AMERICAN MOTORCYCLE, flame-throwing, oil-spewing buckboards that careened around saucer-shaped speedways made of wood. "Neck-and-Neck with Death!!!" screamed the posters, and when the board-trackers came to your town, everybody turned out to see the spectacle.

SENSATIONAL JOURnalism? Maybe so, but the above quote, taken from a newspaper account of a race meet at the Los Angeles Motorcycle Stadium in 1912, was no more than a parallel to the venue itself. The board-tracks, the terrifying machines and the men who rode them popularized motorcycle racing like nothing else before or since.

DESPITE WHAT SOME PEOPLE THINK, THE Middle of Nowhere still exists. It's extremely difficult to find these days, what with GPS and Palm Pilots and cell phones and such, but it's out there. It wasn't so long ago, however, that The Middle of Nowhere truly was.

WHILE THE MAJORITY OF SEARS' MOTORCYCLE SALES OCCURRED during the '50s and '60s, the company did have a prior flirtation with the two-wheel trade. In the early Teens, the retail giant's wares included V-Twins and Singles such as this 1914 model.

HAULING MOTORCYCLES AROUND IS the dirtbike rider's penance. You've got to get the bikes to the track or trail, right? But doing it with the least amount of hassle and the minimum amount of vehicular damage requires some clever thinking.

PITY THE POOR CYCLE WORLD staff. Our long-term Suzuki SV650 is no longer ours. During the last two years, the zippy little V-Twin has been a source of amusement for almost everyone under the CW roof. And as we merrily put our obligatory 10,000-plus miles on the '99 model, we all agreed that few motorcycles in our well-stocked shed are quite as much fun to ride.

MARK HOYER
EVER HAVE ONE OF THOSE DAYS? EVER HAVE ONE OF those days last three weeks? That's the Paris-Dakar Rally, where even the winner takes a merciless beating. As for the losers, well, in addition to a beating, they also get beat. It's as much a struggle as it is a race, and the joy of winning is often only equaled by the joy that it's finally ending.

Seven-time AMA Supercross Champion Jeremy McGrath relaxed in the mirror-lined inner sanctum of his new $1 million semi-truck, quietly chatting with a few close friends. It was three days prior to the season-opening round of the 2001 EA Sports Supercross Series at Edison International Field in Anaheim, California, and McGrath was feeling good.
